  • Peter Gilbert Lennington

    I had the pleasure of first meeting Glenn years ago as part of a five-day intensive course on wealth preservation, estate planning and elder law. Glenn's participation in the program was unique in that he simply began to "take charge" of the discourse -- offering up valuable tips for all attendees. Glenn is a creative, organized and tireless practitioner. His membership and participation in WealthCounsel, LLC makes Glenn part of a "quasi law firm" of 1500 of some of the best estate planning attorneys nationwide. I would, without reservation, recommend Glenn to anyone needing estate planning in the Detroit metro area, as well as anyone in Southeastern Michigan.
