4.0 stars 15 totalReview Glenn Levy
Yesterday I sent a VERY detailed (1500 word) request for consultation to Mr. Levy asking for an honest legal evaluation of potential ADA, EEOC and wrongful termination allegations I have against my former "big corporation" employer. Later the same day Mr. Levy personally contacted me twice. I was unavailable to pick up the phone when he called, so the onus is on me. I called him back this morning and spoke about my case in detail. Mr. Levy clearly has experience fighting this specific employer regarding EEOC-related claims of alleged employer ADA violations and wrongful termination. He gave me a no bull case evaluation with pros and cons and always allowed me to speak. He asked pertinent questions about the facts and events of my case, some of which I had not even thought about. After 30 minutes of conversation, he offered to represent me. I have not yet signed representation documents so this review is listed as a Consult. Thus far I am 100% pleased with Mr. Levy's legal knowledge, willingness to help, honesty, and informing me of any flaws of my case.
The advice below is based on my experience and what I was able to do based on my own particular physical and/or mental disability, education, and a lot of trial-by-fire failures before finally obtaining success. Use, modify, adjust, or don't talk my advice at all adjusted to your unique situation. I am a layman & did the best I could:
****Heed my advice: prior to contacting an attorney, make sure you fully educate yourself on the merits (pros) and cons of your case. Remove your emotions and feelings from the situation and be as objective as possible about your case as it pertains to the reseat you've done, in my case TX Employment Labor Law, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the EEOC, and the adept of Labor. Be honest with yourself and document everything. Once you've researched whether or not you may have a case, write the key events, times, people, and places down and back up your allegations with the research you've done.
***Once you've written down the essential details of your case backed by research you believe proves your case has merit, practice telling your story objectively (not subjectively) in 5 to 7 minutes. The goal should be that anyone you tell your case story to should be able to clearly understand the when, where, why, who, and how's of your case. So when those 5 - 7 minutes are up, the listener (Attorney) has a full and complete idea of what you are claiming, who you're claiming against, why you believe you have a case, , what objective evidence/law/documentation supports your case and how you intend to argue your case and what realistic outcome you want the attorney's representation to help you achieve.
If you can do this, your chances of having your case taken seriously improve.
When requesting help from an attorney, be prepared and present your case with the seriousness it deserves.
If you desire the best chance of an attorney accepting your case, invest time and effort to research the merits of your case and be able to support your case with objective evidence including applicable law.
An example of what not to write when requesting assistance from an attorney: "I was fired and my boss hates me and im crying I want my job back." This example does not give the attorney any helpful information on why he/she should contact you back except for the fact that you've been fired and you want your job back. Great: but WHAT happened resulting in your termination? WHEN and WHERE did this happen and WHO was involved? HOW were you terminated? WHAT reason were you given by your employer and WHY do you object? WHY do you think you have a valid legal case against your employer? WHAT law did they allegedly violate applicable to your case? WHAT objective evidence do you have to prove your allegations? And, most importantly HOW can the attorney help you and WHAT realistic outcome do you want?

Mr. Levy is an exceptional advisor, legal strategist, and litigator. I have been not only impressed with his proactive notification when events arise surrounding my case, but also immensely appreciate his patience and willingness to meet and explain things when I have questions. The time commitment, dedication and planning that Glenn dedicates truly sets him above the bar. I would absolutely recommend that you reach out to him both when (a) negotiating your employment contracts and (b) if you find yourself in a challenging situation with regard to an employment concern.

Glenn returned my phone call right away and had me in the office the next day. He had letters out to my old employer in a matter of a day and we were in mediation in less than a few weeks. At the end of the mediation I got what was owed to me and he had the other side leaving with their tales between their legs. LOVE HIM!!!

I have never seen this man face-to-face, and I would love to, but he seems to have forgotten about me completely. As far as I know, he has not even touched my file. Now I am going to be out on the street in the next 4 days because ever since being wrongfully terminated from my job, I am unable to pay for my basic needs and no one will help. Another 18 days after that, I will lose my car. I was seriously impressed by the reviews I read on this website, and contacted him instead of anyone else because of the great feedback. I told his clerk how dire my situation is and it did not seem to impress her at all. I know attorneys are busy but at the very least, they should make an effort to show some interest, even if it's a contingency case. I'm starting to believe that if I had gone with one of the other guys, I would not be losing my home and my car. I feel really stupid for trusting that he would actually help me. And I feel terribly alone.

Levy is unprofessional to say the least. Levy gave us the wrong analysis during our initial evaluation and then forgot about our case for 6 months. In those 6 months, I turned in over 200 pages of evidence, brought two additional witnesses to the case, and left over 14 messages with the receptionist, but Levy never returned the calls. Finally, after realizing we were leaving, Levy called my wife with a bad attitude, as if she was bothering him. After my wife explained that we had been waiting for six months to hear word about our case, Levy admitted to forgetting about our case, and apologized. He went on to say that, this time, he had his legal opinion ready to go, and we would be back on track in no time. Accepting the apology, we setup two more meetings with Levy, but both times, Levy did not call or show. The meetings were made weeks in advance on his terms and I told him I was taking off time from work to be there. He didn't care - his receptionist didn't even know where he was. This guy has been the biggest waste of my time in the entire state of Texas (and that's saying something).

I could not be happier with the way my case turned out! Glenn listened to everything I had to say and saw how upset I was. He helped me to get everything I needed to create my case, and he put it together beautifully. He answered every question I had, and explained how the law works.. I truly felt he was as pissed off as I was with what had been done to me. When we finally faced the awful people who did me wrong he was so intimidating and aggressively fought for my rights. After a 6 hr mediation we settled on almost all my money I was owed! Glenn is the best. I don't wanna know what those jerks would have gotten away with if I would have chosen a weakling attorney. So if your looking for someone who will fight for you and what you deserve with knowledge, aggression, and confidence do yourself a favor and hire Glenn.
