About Glen

Learn Glen’s areas of practice.

We take the time to care about our clients. Family law cases are difficult because they relate to our most emotional issues of children and relationships. In times of high emotion a person needs an attorney who will not become embroiled into the client's emotions.

We give the client the help and advice he or she needs that acknowledges the upsetting facts without being dominated by them. We use caution and detailed business analysis to advise you if the settlement you are considering is fair or if you could do better in court.

Although most of our cases settle, if they do not, we are ready to force the issue with a trial. We can help you see to it that life after divorce is going to be stable for your children, safe for yourself and smart financially. You can take comfort in knowing that we have a network of other professionals to assure that you have the needed professionals around you at the time you need them. Our team can handle any situation that may arise.

Expert, knowledgeable, family law experience
Glen has been my attorney since 2016. His knowledge and expertise when it comes to family law has given me cause to seek his legal services for continuing legal issues over the years. He has been incredibly generous with his time and effort he has spent on my cases, and I have always been pleased with the work he has done as well as the results.

Grandchildren Custody
My wife and I hired Glen to gain custody of our two youngest grand children. They lived in IL and we lived in Minnesota. Glen spent 10 months and many hours accomplishing this task. We found him to be very knowledgable, experienced, positive and always communicated effectively with us. We would recommend Glen to anyone looking for a hard working, professional lawyer in this area of law.

This was a difficult case, and it was even more difficult for your Grandchildren. I was very glad to be able to help you, and them. It is good to know the kids are healthy and happy now living in Minnesota. Thank you for your recommendation.

Detailed, knowlegeable, compassionate, fair
Divorce is a painful, awful, confusing, process. There are many moving parts and engaging the right attorney based on your personal needs is critical. I found Glen to be exactly what I needed in my divorce process - detailed, knowledgeable, responsive, attentive, and most importantly fair. He did an excellent job and I highly recommend him.
