This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
An Extremely Knowledgeable and Relatable Professional
Mr. Duvel was extremely helpful to us with respect to our employment/labor legal needs as well as the creation of a trust for our personal estate planning purposes. Though each circumstance under which we hired him was different, what never changed was his willingness to help us understand the law, how it applies to our specific circumstances and the pros/cons of what different approaches could look like. He is extremely knowledgeable, yet friendly and above all else, really took the time to listen and understand our situation so that he could give us the best advise for us. Mr. Duvel far exceeded our expectations and without question we will hire him anytime we need assistance in his area of legal expertise in the future.

Appreciation for Attorney Mr. Glen Duvel
To whom it may concern: Mr. Glen Duvel has represented my legal interests for over five years and has done so most professionally and always with a kind and sincere demeanor. He is usually always available and if not he returns calls in promptly. I could not be happier with his service and recommend him to all who may need legal advice or representation.

My fantastic attorney
As my personal attorney, Glen Duvel has helped me in many ways. I have to say that I have met many attorneys in my day, some are great and some are anything but. Glen is not only terribly knowledgeable and hard working, but he's also incredibly easy to talk to and an all-around great guy. I couldnt be happier with the help he's giving me since I starting using him and I look forward to working with him for many years to come.
