Practice areas

A 2002 graduate of West Virginia University with a bachelor’s degree in biology, Mr. Glass  entered the West Virginia University College of Law immediately thereafter and graduated in 2005 with a Juris Doctorate degree.

 

He began working with La Neve Law Offices in 2004 as a law clerk during his third year of law school.  Mr. Glass actively participated in the handling of all of the firm’s criminal cases, while maintaining a focus on representing individuals charged with driving under the influence (DUI).   He regularly handled almost all DMV administrative hearings and appeals from administrative cases for clients of La Neve Law Offices.

 

Mr. Glass has completed extensive training in the area of drunk driving defense.  He has been a member of the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) since he began practicing in 2005.  Currently there are only five attorneys in the entire state that are members of NCDD.  Other memberships include the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the West Virginia Bar Association, and he is a founding member of the West Virginia DUI Defense Lawyers Association.

 

Shortly after being admitted to the practice of law, Mr. Glass was trained as a practitioner in Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST’s) and holds a certificate of successful completion of the NHTSA/IACP course curriculum in that field.  This is the same training that every officer in the state of West Virginia must go through at the State Police Academy.  Mr. Glass is also one of only two attorneys in the entire state to be a trained Intoximeter EC/IR II breath test operator.

 

Mr. Glass has attended the Summer Session, focused on development of trial skills, conducted annually by the NCDD on the grounds of Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  He has also attended many other national NCDD sponsored and accredited conferences, including multiple trips to the annual Mastering Scientific Evidence seminar.  Mr. Glass makes it a point to attend at least two of these events every year.

 

With ongoing improvements in analytical technology, many criminal cases, especially DUI cases, are now impacted by scientific evidence such as DNA, fingerprinting, breath tests, and blood tests.  Thanks to his background in biology and his continuing education, Mr. Glass is able to understand the intricacies of this complex area of the law.

 

Mr. Glass has successfully represented hundreds of clients, obtaining winning outcomes in many cases, through pretrial motions, plea negotiations, and trial. Mr. Glass also has extensive experience in appellate work, including DMV appeals and various writs.  Mr. Glass has also appeared in front of the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. 

 

In the Fall of 2011, Mr. Glass opened his own office, The Glass Defense Firm, which focuses soley on criminal defense in West Virginia, with an emphasis in DUI defense.  Jason Glass and the Glass Defense Firm is the clear choice for criminal defense in West Virginia.

Recent client
My recent experience had a great outcome. My case lasted a whole calendar year due to the Covid pandemic. After my last hearing I was extremely happy of the outcome. Jason Glass does very well with getting the most best possible results for his clients. Thank you!

Highly Recommended
Mr Glass provided me with the support and counsel that I needed. I was involved in case that was very complex due to my out of town residency. Mr Glass meticulously analyzed my case from all angles and work diligently from start to finish. I am completely confident in his work. He went above and beyond not only for me, but my friends and family as well.

Highly recommend
Jason Glass took a very bad situation (felony drug charge) and turned it around. He was very good about explaining the steps ahead and what could be done to mitigate the damage. Jason was able to lessen the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor (for which we can request an expungement) and for that we are forever grateful. Don't hesitate to hire Jason Glass.

I Would Recommend Jason To Anyone
Jason always filled me in with my case status when we talked. Step by step he explained what was happening throughout the whole case. He is very knowledgeable in DUI laws and helped me through my tough situation. I would recommended Jason to anyone, family or friend.

This guy knows everything about DUIs... seriously...
Jason has been the best lawyer I've ever worked with (out of 4). I did put him down with a 4 for responsiveness because he took a few days to get back when I called a few times, however it was never really an amount of time that affected anything else, in other words, he always got me the information I needed well before the time I needed it. The case he helped me with was a DUI, and I can't speak for any other areas of the law, but when it comes to DUIs, this guy knows EVERYTHING. I talked to many different lawyers before I picked one, and in the end it was Jason's glaring knowledge of the subject matter that made him the clear choice. He knew tons of details on everything from the roadside sobriety test and arrest, to how the specific members of the Monongalia court system we would be working with might treat a case like mine. And of course he used this knowledge to leverage the court and dmv's decisions in my favor at every opportunity. It's always helpful to have a lawyer that knows more than the cops do about their own jobs. He's a pleasure to work with, given his experience his rates are more than reasonable, and he's the first person I'd call if I'm ever in trouble with the law again, especially for a DUI.

Excellent lawyer: Jason M. Glass
Mr. Glass was very knowledgeable and handled my case with ease. He is well acquainted with all aspects of the law and also carries the respect of others involved. I would recommend Jason without hesitation after my experience with him. There is no one better in my opinion. Thank you Jason!
Posted by anonymous | December 3, 2013
Excellent!
I would definitely recommend Mr. Glass to anyone searching for an attorney. Communication was amazing. He helped me every step of the way, sometimes just taking time to answer my questions or to tell me what would happen next. He made recommendations for me, gave me all the names, numbers, dates, etc. Anything I needed to know, I got shortly after hiring him. He definitely knows what he's doing, and absolutely made a terrible situation seem a lot less terrible.

Great Lawyer
Mr. Glass is very knowledgeable about the laws in West Virginia. I used him to appeal a decision to revoke my drivers license that the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles had made. He handled my case professionally, and always kept me informed during the process. When presented with the facts by Mr. Jason Glass, the DMV had no choice but to accept the appeal, and reinstate my drivers license. If I ever have anymore problems with the West Virginia DMV, I will not hesitate to call Mr. Jason Glass. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with the West Virginia DMV. When he talked, they had no choice but to listen.

Wonderful
Jason was always there when if needed anything. He explained everything to me and he always found time to talk with me. He is excellent at what he does. I have no regrets whatsoever. If I could go back in time I wouldn't change anything. I couldn't have found a better lawyer.

I Highly Recommend Jason
Jason knows the DUI laws inside and out and found several procedural errors with my case. We didn't have to go to trial and the charge was reduced to reckless driving. He kept me informed every step of the way and everything went as he predicted it would. I could not have been more pleased.
