After Trinidad Galdean graduated from Drake University’s law school in 1992, he went to work as a litigator working primarily personal injury cases.
“Slip-and-falls, auto accidents, trial work,” Galdean said.
Along the way the 44-year-old native of Dalhart, Texas, expanded his practice to include commercial litigation and commercial law. It was within commercial law that Galdean found his niche: employment law.
That niche would lead him to join Kutak Rock’s Wichita office in 2006 and, more recently, to serve as “of counsel attorney” at Hinkle Law Firm.
It’s also a niche that Galdean has cultivated into an active role within the Society for Human Resource Management Wichita chapter. He serves as the organization’s 2012 president. Galdean also holds board certification in labor and employment law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and is certified as a professional in human resources by the Human Resource Certification Institute.
He is married to Betsy and they have a 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter.
