I have helped thousands of victims during my career. Going through the process of helping these victims, I have learned what tremendous hardships people are forced to undergo. This makes me a better lawyer as I have a deep understanding of what these victims must endure, which allows me to present their case more effectively to obtain the compensation my clients deserve.


In such cases, many victims and their families have an extremely hard time coping or trying to cope with their injuries, pain and suffering or the loss of a loved one and the hardships that come with it, such as lost wages and a suddenly very uncertain future - in terms of health and/or how to pay bills and make ends meet.

These victims need help and I supply that help by taking on the insurance companies and those at fault to get the victim the compensation he or she deserves. This provides the victim with relief from a major source of stress, so he or she can attend to healing, physically, emotionally and mentally.


I persevere in obtaining deserving compensation for those losses, as well as for medical bills, lost wages, future earnings' impairment, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, loss of love, society, affection, and compensation for vocational rehabilitation.


Example cases


Partial paralysis case with disputed liability and victim's vehicle speeding and tailgating.  Multi-million dollar settlement.


Death case with highly disputed liability. Victim's vehicle broke down on a freeway where the victim's vehicle was in the slow lane. Witness saw victim walk into the next lane when victim was struck. Greatly over $1 million settlement.

Victim driver speeding vehicle in heavy rain on two-lane roadway, loses control and slams into object off roadway. Highly disputed liability. Settlement $1 million.

Car accident causes victim to sustain disc injuries requiring surgeries. Settlement $650,000.

Disclaimer: These past case results are not intended to be taken as a prediction or warranty of future results as to your case. Each case depends on its own facts, liability and damages.

Some counties served include: Alameda, Contra Costa, El Dorado, Fresno, Los Angeles, Marin,  Monterey, Napa, Orange, Sacramento, San Bernadino, San Francisco, San Mateo, San Joaquin, Santa Clara, Sonoma, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Yolo.


Some cities served include: Alameda, Antioch, Bakersfield, Belmont, Brentwood, Castro Valley, Concord, Daly City, Davis, Dixon, Emeryville, Fairfield, Fremont, Hercules, Lafayette, Livermore, Martinez, Menlo Park, Modesto, Monterey, Moraga, Newark, Oakland, Oakley, Orinda, Palo Alto, Pittsburgh, Pleasanton,   Redwood City, Richmond,  Sacramento, San Bruno, San Carlos, San Francisco, San Jose, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, San Mateo, San Pablo, Santa Clara, Suisun, Sunnyvale, Stockton, Tracy, Walnut Creek, Vacaville, Vallejo, Visalia. 



I began my own law firm in 1989, shortly after the death of my mentor and employer, Robert E. Cartwright Sr., then one of the most prominent plaintiff's attorneys in the U.S. I decided to become a lawyer to help people, generally. Early in law school, I was drawn to helping tort victims, which led me to the fields of personal injury, wrongful death, premises liability, products liability, nursing home neglect and other similar areas of study.

Exceptionally fine lawyer
Kind, efficient, and comforting during a stressful time. Took care of all our needs in ways that we had not expected. He was exceptionally good in explaining things simply and clearly. Case was settled fast and for much more than we had hoped for. He is a fine, warm person and a great lawyer.

Outstanding legal help
Mr Glen served us exceptionally well. He was kind and considerate, explained the case as it unfolded simply and clearly, and most important to us, he kept us informed at every step which made us very comfortable. I recommend him most highly and have recommended him to friends who found him as fine a lawyer as we did.
