Very impressive, knowledgeable, patient, and thorough, a capable lawyer with an admirable balance of legal expertise, common sense, and empathy. He answered all my questions and was very honest about some possibly outcomes of my situation. Mr. Glass efficiently guided me through what was, to me, a confusing maze of legal dilemmas, to timely and cost effective solution. Allen Glass has my highest recommendation.
I worked with Allen for about 12 years on and off related to the same parenting plan. He is very organized and knowledgable and we won case after case insuring that my rights set out in the parenting plan were not violated. My daughter lived on the other side of the country so my visitation rights were very important to me. I believe it is because of Allen that I am able to have a relationship with my adult daughter today. Allen kept me focussed on what was important for me and my daughter's overall well being. I have nothing but respect and praise for Mr. Glass.
Allen Glass is a remarkable lawyer. I first retained Mr. Glass almost five years ago to represent me in a custody case. As a father I did not expect much, but what I received was beyond belief. Allen’s superior knowledge of the law and meticulous strategic planning was crucial in me obtaining not just 50/50, but full custodial guardianship of my daughter. Allen’s keen senses of the law lead us to winning further cases and several arbitration's. In the one arbitration in which we did not win, Allen was confident that the arbitrator stepped out of their legal boundaries and suggested appealing. Allen was unfazed by this adversity and the appeal went exactly as Mr. Glass thought it would and the arbitration was reversed. Allen also cares about his clients. This has been a long, tense, and unfortunate situation that I have been a part of. When Mr. glass felt that I was starting to act petty and lose long term focus, he was quick to remind me that instant gratification is not always the best and most meaningful result. Now that these cases are over and I have had time for reflection; it is easy for me to admit that he was correct! Now if you cannot handle honesty, then Allen Glass is not your lawyer, but if you want an experienced, hardworking, and professional lawyer that actually cares about the outcome of the case then Allen Glass is your lawyer.
Allen has handled two divorces for me and one child custody case. He is always responsive to my calls and emails. His fees are reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone. especially if you need someone to fight for your rights
Here are a few of the things that are an A for Allen Glass. He answers his own phone, he doesn't have a paralegal incompetently handling your case (nor is he incompetent), his rate is reasonable, and all of the emails are forwarded directly to you. Like the blow-by-blow. (BONUS!)
What's A+ about Allen, is that he's Ivy League educated and went to a top tier law school. Yes people, the law school he went to is ranked. When you're getting charged 50 bucks an email, you'd better bet your tail feather, looking for someone who scored high enough on the LSAT to make it through the mail room at a top 25 is CRUCIAL. He also has an advantage due to his undergrad background in finance and economics.
All in all, the outcome was good. Hey, sometimes you have to protect yourself from getting raked over the coals. It'll cost ya. Maybe you'll hire him, maybe you won't. But before you decide to hire the attorney your uncle used for his DUI, you could just be hiring a thug with a JD. Don't forget, no one likes a slow checker.
I was the petitioner in my divorce. I went through two other attorneys, getting kicked around by the respondent (my ex-wife) and her attorneys before I found Allen Glass. Allen was the first attorney who actually made an effort to proactively build a case for me so that I could get custody of my child. The other attorneys were only interested in nickel-and-diming their way through their retainers without producing any results. They were also gun-shy about the possibility of going to trial, which meant they were always anxious to settle at any cost or detriment to me. So, after months without results or hope, I found Allen Glass, who gave me both...and ultimately got me custody of my then 3-year old little girl after a 3-day trial. Had I only known then what I know now, I would have saved myself time, money, and grief if I'd have started with Allen Glass from the beginning!
When other attorneys wanted me to settle and hope for the best Allen convinced me that we could win--and win he did! Base on his thorough understanding of the legal system and his "timeline based" strategy, Allen was able to snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat. The petitioner did not win a single hearing for over two years.
