Brian Glass

Partner

Brian Glass is a partner and personal injury attorney at BenGlassLaw. His practice is limited to the representation of injured people against insurance companies and the people who hurt them. Insurance companies have endless sums of money to throw at the defense of these cases and he enjoys the David vs. Goliath challenge.

Brian grew up in Fairfax where he still lives with his wife and three sons. He attended Robinson Secondary School and James Madison University. After college, he attended law school at the College of William & Mary, where he was named a Benjamin Rush Scholar for excellence in Health Law & Policy. 

Brian is licensed to practice in Virginia and Maryland. He is a member of the Fairfax Bar Association, the Virginia Bar Association, and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association. He was recently named as one of the Top 40 Under 40 in Virginia by the National Trial Lawyers Association. He also holds the distinction of being designated as a Rising Star by SuperLawyers magazine each year from 2017 – 2023. This award recognizes only the top 2.5% of lawyers in the state. 

In April 2022, a Fairfax County jury awarded more than $4M to Brians client following a head-on collision with a drunk driver, including an extra $1,000,000 in punitive damages. This was the sixth largest settlement in Virginia for 2022, and the punitive damages awarded were one of the largest for a drunk driving case in the history of Virginia. But more than these accolades, Brian is most proud of the reviews that the team receives from our clients.   

Brian is a thought leader on the topic of building great businesses and helping people live epic lives. Hes President at Great Legal Marketing and host of the podcast, Time Freedom for Lawyers, where you can find him Entertaining myself (and you!) with interviews with wildly successful humans who think differently. We talk business building, vision setting, investing, and epic adventures. He has been interviewed by Forbes, Injury Experts, and has been a guest on podcasts such as Tribe of Millionaires, Dreamcatchers, Millionaire Mindcast, and Law Firm Movers and Shakers

Outside of the office, you can usually find him on a field somewhere coaching his son’s soccer or baseball teams, traveling, creating memories with his family, or seeing how far he can run. His proudest running moment is finishing the Umstead 100-mile race in a time of 23 hours, 18 minutes, 25 seconds. Afterwards, he immediately fell asleep.
