Right person for the job
Explained situation to him. For a busy lawyer, he was attentive to my concerns and always kept me in the loop of what is happening. Never thought a simple issue had so many deceitful sides. If you ever think you need someone in your corner, Glenn in there to make sure you don't get backed into the corner.

A go-to-guy who will go above and beyond the call
Glenn has represented me professionally and consistently whether it has been at scheduled court dates or in moments of immediate need where he has not hesitated to travel great distances or work long into the night to show up at a court house or shore up my legal paperwork. Glenn has come through for me where other lawyers I've dealt with have been nothing short of lazy and greedy. Glenn has followed through for me and does his homework. In my tenant/landlord case his legal research yielded a particular precedent-setting case that made all the difference in defending a suit brought against me. It goes without saying that Glenn will from this point forward be my legal counsel for any of my future needs.
