Most people who meet attorney Ben Glass come to know him as a father of nine children (four of them adopted and five who still get on the school bus every morning), a small business advocate in Northern Virginia, a non-profit and charity supporter, and ex-marathon runner - in addition to being one of the most-reviewed attorneys in the area (see him on Avvo and Google).
Born and raised in Annandale, Ben has spent his career practicing law in the courtrooms throughout Northern Virginia (and in other areas of the state as well). He currently has kids at Robinson High School (go Rams!), in addition to four who have "launched" into the world - a pastor in Pennsylvania, a solider currently serving in Afghanistan, a lawyer who also practices in the region, and a future educator finishing up her degree at William and Mary.
With four adopted children of his own, Ben and the team at BenGlassLaw support Love Without Boundaries, an organization devoted to improving the quality of care for impoverished orphans.
When Ben isn't busy helping the clients of BenGlassLaw, he is often refereeing soccer games on the weekend (a practice that dates back to his time at Thomas Jefferson High School and his days playing soccer at William and Mary College) in between his own kids' games, recitals, and practices.
Of course, Ben has an "origin story" as an attorney as well...
