Glenn Ivey began his law career over 30 years ago in Maryland, where he started a law firm before moving into a representative position on Capitol Hill working for Congressman John Conyers, Jr. He returned to practicing law in 1989 when he served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office. It was here in Washington, D.C. under Attorney General Eric Holder that Glenn began handling criminal jury trials, appeals, and grand jury investigations. Recognizing his love for the intersection of law and policy, Glenn returned to Capitol Hill, serving as counsel to three different politicians during the years of 1994-1998. During this time, Glenn was appointed by Governor Parris Glendening as Chairman of the Maryland Public Service Commission. Soon after in 2002, Glenn was elected State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County where he enjoyed serving the county for the next eight years.
Glenn experience in the political sphere gives him distinct and useful knowledge to bring to cases within his private practice. He represents both businesses and individuals alike in cases that involve commercial discord, internal investigations, criminal defense, regulatory disputes, serious injuries, and much more. Outside of his professional life, Glenn has been happily married to Jolene Ivey, a former state delegate, for 31 years. Together, they have raised six children and reside in Maryland.
Glenn graduated with honors from both Princeton University and Harvard Law School. His passion for legal education does not end at his own—Glenn also enjoys teaching law students in his free time. He has taught trial advocacy as a professor at Harvard Law School and as an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland Law School for 19 years. He maintains faculty status at Harvard Law School’s Trial Advocacy Workshop.
Glenn is licensed to practice law in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Glenn is also admitted to practice before the Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia and Maryland, as well as the District Courts in D.C., Maryland, Eastern/Western Virginia, the District of Puerto Rico (pro hac vice), the Southern District of California (pro hac vice), and the Southern District of New York (pro hac vice). Glenn is currently a chairman of the Maryland Legal Services Corporations and continues to provide input to publications such as the New York Times and Washington Post.
