Bio

Practicing law for more than 30 years, he concentrates his practice in the area of family law, including:Glen has represented clients in negotiations, mediations, and litigation, resolving cases in more than 35 counties in Minnesota. He provides compassionate, nonjudgmental legal advice and counsel, working to achieve his client’s objectives. Whenever possible, Glen works hard to achieve a mutually acceptable settlement to preserve as much of the family relationship so co-parenting remains possible. For out-of-state clients, such as custodial parent moves, Glen serves as their Minnesota legal counsel.

He helps clients make logical sense out of emotionally charged issues so they can make informed decisions. Glen works with experts to define and value marital and business assets so that the divorce can make business sense and be survivable for both parties.

Sometimes a family breaks up and the fracture cannot be repaired. If the children form a parent/child bond with a stepparent, we can take steps to make the stepparent the adoptive parent. Families may rely on grandparents to raise the children because the parents are not there or are otherwise unable to do so. Glen can help the grandparents formalize the parent/child relationship.

Raised in Minnetonka, Minnesota, Glen received his B.A. from Gustavus Adolphus College and his law degree from Hamline University School of Law. He lives with his wife in Plymouth. In his free time, Glen enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and boating.
