A career prosecutor until entering private practice in 2004, Glen has distinguished himself in various areas of complex, white-collar crimes, primarily in the health care field.

After receiving his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Louisiana State University, Glen earned his law degree from LSU's Law School in 1977.

His interest in prosecution led him to an appointment as an Assistant Attorney General in that office's criminal division in 1978. Shortly thereafter, Glen joined the staff of the Baton Rouge District Attorney's Office where he was lead prosecutor in almost 90 felony jury trials during a five-year career there.

In 1984, Louisiana's attorney general re-appointed Glen as an Assistant Attorney General in the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, a prosecutorial unit charged with combating fraud committed against the state's Medicaid program, and the abuse and neglect of the elderly and infirm in the state's long-term care facilities.

Glen was appointed Director of the MFCU in 1987 and was instrumental in the passage of several bills in the state legislature that enhanced the group's ability to prosecute elderly abuse. For almost fifteen years, Glen was lead prosecutor in the prosecution of numerous health care providers who had cheated the state's Medicaid program. Under his leadership, Louisiana's MFCU was recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as the nation's top unit in 1992.

Glen was extremely active in the National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units, serving on its executive committee and legislative committee for several years, and as its president in 1990. He was an instructor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Georgia, on the topic of Medicaid Fraud and addressed various advocacy and professional groups within the state and across the country on the topic of health care fraud and patient abuse. His work toward protecting the elderly earned him an appointment on the Governor's Committee for the Coordination of Police Services to the Elderly, and being recognized in 1996 by the Louisiana Association of Retarded Citizens (ARC) as a special advocate for that group. During this same time, Glen was a Special Assistant United States Attorney for both the Middle and Western Districts of Louisiana.

In 1998, Glen joined the United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Louisiana, continuing his prosecution of health care providers who defrauded government programs, including Medicare. After leaving the public sector, Glen became a founding member of Hymel Davis & Petersen.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
