  • Laura A Weight

    I highly recommend Glenn Tanner to anyone needing legal assistance in a family law matter in the Spokane area. I met Glenn through our mutual work on collaborative divorces and I was highly impressed with his intelligence and professionalism. I have heard great feed back from those clients who have hired Glenn to help them.
