Ben also coaches members of the Love Without Boundaries leadership team.
When Ben isn't busy helping the clients of BenGlassLaw, he is often refereeing youth and high school soccer games , a practice that dates back to his time at Thomas Jefferson High School and his days playing soccer on scholarship at William and Mary. Currently he serves on the editorial board of Referee Magazine. He is the author of a leading book for teenage soccer referees.
Of course, Ben has an "origin story" as an attorney as well...
Benjamin W. Glass, III is a 1983 graduate of the George Mason University School of Law (after attending William and Mary for undergraduate work). Since that time he has practiced exclusively in the areas of personal injury and (ERISA and private) long-term disability insurance law. Today, Mr. Glass concentrates his practice in representing those who are injured by others or who have been denied disability or life insurance benefits. More than a lawyer, Ben Glass is a “life coach” to many of his clients.
