Ronald E. Glessner

About Me

I've been in practice since 1981 as a trial attorney, primarily in family law/civil matters, personal injury, wills/trusts and probate. I've successfully litigated, arbitrated and settled civil, criminal, personal injury and family law disputes. Recently there's been an increase in individuals who try to represent themselves, primarily because it appears to save legal costs. In reality, this often leads to significant mistakes and undoing those errors ultimately results in more, not less cost. Contact me for a consultation so you can understand what's involved before you decide to represent yourself. As a partner in a South King County firm, I will discuss your specific situation and guide you to effective solutions. I'll review the risks, set expectations and outline realistic legal costs. As your attorney, I am dedicated to diligently and zealously represent your rights under the law.
