Meet Accident Attorney Galen Trine-McMahan
Galen graduated with honors from the University of Wyoming, College of Law. He dedicated his time at law school to trial practice and injury litigation, and prior to graduation had already tried (and won) his first case before the court.
Galen’s practice areas include insurance bad faith, product defects, and corporate negligence. While in school, he worked full-time in a local nursing home, and helped to raise his younger brother, Mehdi, who battled Neuroblastoma as a child. Galen is insistent, passionate, and talented at protecting those who have become vulnerable.
Galen firmly believes that, beyond knowing and utilizing the law, his ultimate and most important job is to communicate his client’s story to the Jury. Galen’s fascination with storytelling has lasted a lifetime and has resulted in published nonfiction work. As an attorney, Galen believes that you cannot tell the story of your client if you do not know your client. Therefore, Galen prefers to work particularly close with his clients in zealously pursuing a just settlement – or verdict.
Galen has also worked for the Wyoming Attorney General, and has been mentored by some of the finest injury litigators in Colorado. He is a graduate of Wyoming’s Summer Trial Institute, and has been awarded for excellent legal representation of clients by Wyoming’s Legal Services Clinic. Galen is an active member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers’ association. He was extended a Fellowship invitation by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel (NADC) in June of 2019.
Galen’s recent trial resulted in a verdict which was more than 230 times larger than the insurance company’s offers of settlement. He has argued at the Colorado Court of Appeals and has filed suit against some of the largest corporations in America.
