Stephen M. Glassman
Stephen M. Glassman grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. He is a 1965 graduate of University City High School. He worked his way through college at the University of Missouri - Columbia, graduating in 1970.
While attending law school at St. Louis University School of Law, Steve was employed by the State Farm and Maryland Casualty insurance companies where he learned the insurance claim business.
In 1975, he graduated St. Louis University School of Law where he received the Wall Street Journal Award as the school’s top student in corporate law. Rather than pursuing a corporate legal career, Steve accepted the position of Claims Attorney for the Automobile Club Inter-Insurance Exchange, where he supervised all litigation involving Auto Club policyholders, as well as policy coverage cases filed against the Auto Club.
Eager to pursue a career as a trial lawyer, in 1977 Mr. Glassman joined the law firm of Amelung, Wulff & Willenbrock, where he spent the next seven years defending personal injury suits in all the federal and state courthouses throughout eastern Missouri.
In 1984, Mr. Glassman left the insurance defense practice to start his own firm representing the victims of medical negligence, defective products, dangerous premises and auto accidents. Assisted by capable nurse paralegals and legal assistants, Glassman personally handles every case with a staff committed to the relentless pursuit of the best settlement or trial result for every client. Mr. Glassman's firm has been blessed with a loyal clientele which has been the firm's chief source of business for over 20 years.
In recent years, The Glassman Law Firm has been fortunate to have achieved several unique and record-setting results for its clients.
