Glenn W. Magnell

Unlike many other defense attorneys I am NOT a former Assistant District Attorney nor a former police officer. I don't judge our clients, I just defend them.  In fact, I came to the practice of law as a second career. Prior to becoming an attorney I spent 20 years as a business executive, eventually running a large subsidiary of a Fortune 500 company. While those years in private business were challenging and rewarding, there came time that I wanted to do something different and more directly related to assisting other people. So, I left the business world, went to law school, passed the New York State bar exam and became a practicing attorney. You can read my full bio here and meet our staff here.
