Attorney John Glassman: More Than 20 Years of ExperienceHaving practiced in the areas of probate, guardianship and conservatorship, and estate planning since 1988.
I have earned a reputation throughout the Florida Panhandle legal community for knowledgeable and trustworthy representation.
I am frequently asked to present seminars and workshops on these practice areasto my colleagues. However, the focus of my teaching is on consumers. Not only do I educate all of my clients about the law on a one-on-one basis, I volunteer teaching a class at Pensacola State College about the roles and responsibilities that go along with guardianship. The class is mandatory for all newly appointed guardians.
Intelligent, Thoughtful and Ethical RepresentationMy reputation is for intelligent, thoughtful and ethical representation. I previously served on the First Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee, first as the vice chair and then as chair. This committee oversees complaints against other lawyers. I am also a member of the Estate Planning Counsel of Pensacola, an organization that includes not only lawyers, but also other professionals whose work involves estates and financial matters.
Committed to ResolutionsWhile much of the work I do is resolved without conflict, there is always a potential for dispute when it comes to estates, probate and guardianship. Having handled more than 1,000 trials during my career, I am prepared to resolve disputes in court if need be. Ultimately, my goal in every case is to do what is right for the client. You can be confident that I have the experience and knowledge to do what is right for you.

Estate Planning - Guardianship and Conservatorship
ProbateI bring more than 20 years of experience to clients in Pensacola and the Florida Panhandle. However, experience is not the only ingredient necessary to achieve a positive outcome, particularly in these complex areas of the law. A lawyer must keep up with frequent changes in the law and understand how they apply on a case-by-case basis. A lawyer must be willing to work closely with each client, understanding the client's needs to produce an outcome that is truly right for that client. My clients benefit from the hands-on representation I provide in every case, regardless of practice area.
