Top notch
Glen helped me through the entire legal process. I was facing 2 felony charges and Glen helped me get this reduced to a stay of adjudication. No jail time! He definitely makes you still feel like a person in these difficult times. I highly recommend Glen as a defense attorney.

Great representation.
Mr. Kotten recently represented us in recent copyright infringement charge by a Canadian company known for its practice of extortion. He worked with this company and our Insurance Company to settle the matter in a very fast and professional way. We would recommend his services. Thank you for your work, Mr. Kotten!

Copyright litigation settlement
Glen had just joined our church when we were contacted by a company that indicated we had used an image without permission. We had immediately taken it down but they still sent us a bill that was not just your normal nominal fee. Glen looked into the company and some comments made by other companies on line and found out that they probably weren't going to go away with us paying something. He personally contacted the company after talking with the Council and our insurance company and recommended a settlement when sometimes in the past they wouldn't work with other companies. He wrote up the contract so that they couldn't come back again. He did a wonderful job for us and was very professional. I would highly recommend.

Marriage Reconciliation
Mr. Kotten did a great job being an advocate for marriage reconciliation. He came to our first meeting very well prepared and kept my wife and I informed about all our choices. He presented the challenges to both divorce and reconciliation and did not pressure either way. He will do well in this area because I can see he really believes that reconciliation is easier financially and emotionally. He got to know my background dealing with work, religion, and marriage and took that information and laid out a plan for my wife and I to strive for keeping our marriage. He drew together Bible verses and ideas of how to work through our differences. He was also very up front with letting both of us know that in our situation our marriage was worth saving and rebuilding instead of tossing in the towel. I was very impressed and continue to be. I give him all my thanks for doing a superb job.

A great Lawyer!
He was a great attorney. He was very knowledgeable and presented our case with such class. He is a very sharp lawyer and will be able to give the best quality of lawyer services available. Our case was a very sensitive and complicated case and he did an exceptional job for us.

Great Consultation
Mr. Kotten gave me a great representation on what to do for a criminal matter I had from an incident in Sleepy Eye, I ended up with just a small fine and no criminal conviction. He gave me confidence and put me at ease. I have recommended him to my friends and they are happy with him as well.

Best Representation I've Had!!
Thanks for representing me on my moments of need it was a great representation and a lot of release off my shoulders. I'm thankful there is good lawyers out there like yourself. He made me feel like a friend being a represented instead of a client which was really comfortable.

Successful and Trustworthy
Mr. Kotten was recommended to me by a member in my business network and I am very happy with his representation. He represented me in a complex commercial real estate transaction from a national corporation that was represented by a large multi-state law firm. He went over the terms of the purchase agreement with me in an explainable manner and was able to get all of the revisions that I wanted in the drafting process while keeping the purchase price intact. He timely answered my phone calls and emails and worked late into the night to get my concerns met and the transaction completed smoothly. I would recommend Mr. Kotten to everyone and will for surely be using him again!

Mr. Kotten is highly recommended.
Mr. Kotten was very helpful in solving a problem I had with tenant in one of my rental properties in Marshall, MN. He was easy to get a hold of, very knowledgable and explained things to me very well. His rates were also very reasonable compared to other local attorneys I have used in the past few years. I would highly recommend him.

Divorce/Child Support/Alimony/Family Law
Mr. Kotten renewed my faith in attorneys. After a long divorce that was seemingly going nowhere with my current attorney I contacted Mr. Kotten. I explained the issues of the divorce and he set up an appointment for me immediately. He helped answer all the questions I had and took his time to explain it all to me. He actually made me feel like he was working FOR me. Unlike my previous attorney that scolded me, kept me out of the loop on most things and I felt like I was working for her. This is the attorney I would have in my corner if I needed one again.

Disordley Conduct representation
Glen did an awesome job representing me in court for my disorderly conduct charge, which he was able to get dismissed. not only did he do a great job and spent countless time and effort into my case, answered my phone calls, responded to emails, voicemails and answered legal questions that were for other cases, he went above and beyond what was expected of him. He also helped another individual get his charges dropped that was involved but being represented by another attorney. Glen definately knows his stuff and i would definately use him again and recomend him to anyone i know.

Great Lawyer!
I've hired Glen for numerous legal matters, contract drafting and contract review, agriculture land use issues, estate planning & personal representative work. His work product is high quality and he is very responsive. I've worked with other lawyers in New Ulm and Sleepy Eye but they were less responsive and their rates didn't reflect superior work. I would highly recommend Glen, he's a cost effective results driven lawyer.

Probation violation
I worked at an ethanol plant and I hired Glen to help me research the egt test that I had failed for probation !! Glen was very helpful in assuring me of the test and how incidental exposure can come from many different things we use every day , I was facing 210 days in jail and Glen came through for me by presenting such good evidence that I did not even have to go to court he was a huge help for me and my family!!!!!
