“Everyone always asked me why I wanted to be a lawyer. I would often reply by saying ‘I want to make a difference,’ or ‘I want to help people.’ I would then be pried on just exactly how I was going to do that, and for the longest time, I didn’t have a great answer. But over time, I found my answer in the court room; within those walls, I found the place where I could help the most people, where I could make my biggest difference. I found a place where I could fight for my clients, and be there with them through some of the most demanding and stressful moments of their lives. You see, one of my greatest joys is to fix things. I like to fix problems, problems for people. The bigger the problem, the better. And in that court room, I found the place, the way, and the means to fix the most important problems I could find; yours.” – Ethan Glenn
Ethan is a member of the Texas Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the American Young Lawyer’s Association, the Texas Young Lawyer’s Association, the Austin Bar Association, and the Williamson County Bar Association.
