Daniel H. Galindo
Daniel has been passionate about the rights of workers and their families since he first interned at the Washington, D.C. based Labor Council for Latin American Advancement in 2009. At The Ottinger Firm, P.C., Daniel works on individual employee cases and class actions involving discrimination, retaliation, and various wage and hour violations.
Prior to joining The Ottinger Firm, Daniel clerked at the law firm of Rosen, Bien, Galvan & Grunfeld where he focused on the rights of individuals with disabilities and the rights of workers to be reimbursed for out-of-pocket costs of performing their jobs. Daniel has also clerked for the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, where he first gained class action experience. In addition to employment law, Daniel has appellate law expertise, having represented a teenage asylum applicant before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals while in law school through the Hastings Appellate Project.
At U.C. Hastings, Daniel was a member of the Hastings Law Journal and chair of the American Constitution Society. He also served in leadership positions in OUTLAW and Hastings Students for Immigrants’ Rights, as well as a competitor, coach, board member, and teaching assistant in UC Hastings’ nationally recognized moot court program. Prior to law school, Daniel worked as a community organizer and policy advocate for the ACLU of Northern California and as a paralegal at the National ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project.
In addition to his native language, Spanish, Daniel also speaks French and German. In his spare time, Daniel enjoys training for open water swims in the San Francisco Bay. He has swum the length of the Golden Gate Bridge and “escaped” from Alcatraz.
