Mr. Bryan Glass is a really decent guy and a masterful attorney around labor relations law, especially for teachers. He helped me negotiate a settlement from my former employer that left me tremendously satisfied where I could move on with confidence and zero resentment.
Mr. Glass’ best quality is not only being intelligent, but knowing exactly how much fire to add to the negotiating table. During a consultation, he really listened to me and got an accurate assessment of my work environment. I learned to completely trust him as he demonstrated repeatedly that the key to getting what we wanted was keeping the tone and the conversations among the parties amicable. In my situation, all of his tactics move my case along quickly. He did this while at the same time keeping me informed of each and every step along the way, reassuring me that we would add more pressure when necessary. His strategy helped me to feel calm during the most uncertain time of my career.
Beyond winning me a nice severance package, Mr. Glass showed himself to be truly caring of educators and our line of work. He directed me towards key resources that would allow me to get back on my feet and to strengthen my future job perspectives.
I would unequivocally hire Mr. Glass to represent you for any and all issues around your employment. After my experience, I will definitely retain Mr. Glass infinitely, so that during my next job and throughout my career reviews, I can have someone advocating on my behalf. Mr. Glass is clearly knowledgeable about the law in the education field.

In all honesty please don't hire Brian Glass. He talks disrespectfully about all the wonderful clients he has had in the past including ones that gave him favorable ratings. You, the client have to do all the work and he barely remembers your case. He completely detaches himself. He also is very judgemental and has made comments such as "maybe you are too softspoken to be a teacher in the Bronx". I honestly wish I did not spend my 5,000 dollars.

I was terminated from the DOE by a vindictive principal. Since I'm non-tenured, I was concerned that I had no legal recourse. I presented my case to Bryan and he helped me file an Article 78 appeal in NYS Civil Court. Thanks to Bryan's level-headedness, clarity, and knowledge of the teachers' contract, ed. law, and labor law I was able to negotiate a fair settlement with the DOE. Thank you Bryan!

I was somewhat skeptical when I first read about him, but after working with him for a few months, I can definitely say he is very helpful. I just wish I contacted and retained him from the very beginning of my problems with my employer. I would recommend Brian Glass without reticence to anyone looking to save their jobs and not pay ridiculous amounts of money for a lawyer. He is knowledgeable, honest and available. What else could anyone ant from a lawyer?

Bryan Glass has been my lawyer for almost three years. His fees are fair and his knowledge is great. Through him I was able to obtain over 10,000 pages of discovery items including investigative notes and emails my employer never thought I'd see. My case had grown stronger through the evidence and depositions obtained.

I was illegally terminated from a job with the N.Y. City Dept. of Education. I consulted with a numerous amount of attorneys and was told there was nothing I could do. After a few years down the road, Bryan helped a teacher that I know. Thinking that this was hopeless, I met with Bryan and he has given me some hope, although it may be a long shot. He walked me through and helped me with the paperwork. He kept my fees to a minimal amount, as we are taking a chance of this going through due to the time that has passed. I am going to court and will be given an opportunity to proclaim my innocence. At least there's some kind of opportunity available, rather than nothing. Win or lose, I can be complete about this situation.
