"I knew Glenn's father as a fine doctor in Sumter for many years.  I was referred to Glenn by the Senior Partner in his firm, Wade Kolb.  


Glenn worked on a couple of projects for me and completed them successfully on my behalf.  Glenn did well in completing the projects on time and was thorough in his work.  Glenn understood my goals quickly and told me exactly what the fees would be ahead of time.
 
I would recommend Glenn to others in his areas of practice.”

"When I started my business planning in 2012, I knew I would need a good lawyer to help me navigate Federal and South Carolina legal codes.  


After searching for a lawyer willing to assist me in incorporating, I found Glenn.


He's friendly, easy to work with, and knows how to navigate the incorporation process.  I can't recommend Glenn strongly enough."
