Trenton advocates for people whose civil rights have been violated and who have been injured by the wrongful acts of others.

After being admitted to the State Bar of California in 2010, Trenton served as a law clerk (research attorney) in the chambers of two United States District Judges for the Southern District of California. After these clerkships, Trenton returned to private practice.

As an advocate, Trenton regularly defeats motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, and interlocutory appeals filed by defendants in civil cases. Trenton is also an effective litigator in the courtroom, as shown by his work on several successful trial and appellate teams. And when doing so would result in a fair resolution, Trenton also settles cases through mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods.

Trenton graduated cum laude from California Western School of Law, and he graduated magna cum laude from Utah State University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

Trenton is a member of the San Diego County Bar Association, Consumer Attorneys of San Diego, and the National Police Accountability Project, a Project of the National Lawyers Guild.
