Prior to joining Hinkle Law Firm, Trent had his own private practice, where he gained extensive experience, particularly in the areas of juvenile defense, estate planning, probate matters, and guardianship. He worked at Kansas Legal Services before that, where he was a member of the Kansas Juvenile Justice Workgroup, which worked to enact Senate Bill 367.
