Meet Glenn Roethler
Attorney at Law
Glenn Roethler grew up on a small farm in rural Washington State. He enjoyed a reckless childhood, spending most of it riding motorcycles, fishing, driving tractors, bucking hay and racing go-karts. In high school, Glenn was on the football team as a defensive end, golfed, and a member of the track team, where he lagged dutifully behind the much faster athletes.
Glenn attended the University of Washington where he majored in Law, Society and Justice and made the dean’s list on multiple quarters. During this time, Glenn developed his love for the law, and started practicing martial arts. Glenn also worked the summers as a carpenter and laborer for several construction firms, managing to pay for his undergraduate education.
Glenn then spent six months in Europe traveling around like a bum with a large backpack and a couple books telling him where to go. He learned to speak conversational German in a language school while living in Berlin and enjoyed visiting every art and history museum that had a free day. Glenn managed, barely, to avoid being kicked out of Europe for arguing politics with too many locals, and left of his own free will to go to law school.
Glenn attended ASU College of Law, which eventually changed its name to Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, which Glenn believes is just too long to say or type too often. There Glenn picked up bad habits like talking about Torts, Real Estate Law, Secured Transactions and Contracts. The school also reinforced his bad habit of arguing about anything and everything. Apparently, law schools believe this to be a good trait in a lawyer.
Relying on his willingness to argue anything and everything, Glenn chose to open a law firm after working for a short stint as in-house counsel to a title company, which found itself out of business during the Great Recession. He found a another individual who was, amazingly, able to tolerate him and began the firm that eventually became Greeves & Roethler, PLC. You can find Glenn there, probably arguing about something.
