Glenn Roethler grew up on a small farm in rural Washington State. He enjoyed a reckless childhood, spending most of it riding motorcycles, shooting guns, fishing, driving tractors, bucking hay and racing go-karts. In high school, Glenn was an alternate on the all-state football team as a defensive end, the number one position golfer for his team, and a member of the track team, where he lagged dutifully behind the much faster athletes.
Glenn attended the University of Washington where he majored in Law, Society and Justice and made the dean’s list on multiple quarters. During this time, Glenn developed his love for the law and politics, and for a few more less reputable activities – like martial arts. Glenn also worked the summers as a carpenter and laborer for several construction firms, managing to pay for his undergraduate education, and where he learned about a few more less reputable activities – like a healthy disrespect for authority.
Glenn then spent six months in Europe traveling around like a bum with a large backpack and a couple books telling him where to go. He learned to speak conversational German in a language school while living in Berlin and enjoyed visiting every art and history museum that had a free day Glenn managed, barely, to avoid being kicked out of Europe for arguing politics with too many locals, and left of his own free will to go to law school.
Glenn attended Arizona State University College of Law, which eventually changed its name to Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, which Glenn believes is just too long to say. Once more, Glenn picked up bad habits like talking about Torts and Contracts. The school also reinforced his bad habit of arguing about anything and everything. Apparently, law schools believe this to be a good trait in a lawyer.
Combining his lack of respect for authority and his willingness to argue anything and everything, Glenn chose to open a law firm after working for a short stint as in-house counsel to a title company. He found a couple of other individuals who were, amazingly, able to tolerate him and began the firm that eventually became Greeves, Price & Roethler, PLC. You can find Glenn there, probably arguing about something or going on a rant about someone trying to tell him what to do.
