For Guy Glazier, a successful defense of a client does not end with a trial win: it’s also about preventing other cases from being filed altogether.
That aggressive, proactive posture has led to tremendous success for his clients.
Guy is a founding partner of Glazier Yee and serves as managing partner of the firm’s Los Angeles office. He is an experienced trial attorney and business litigation counselor.
Guy’s practice sits at the cutting edge of litigation, including in bringing personal jurisdiction challenges to asbestos litigation and in asserting federal officer removal jurisdiction, removing state court cases to more favorable federal courts.
He has a proven track record of success in the courtroom. In the more than 50 jury trials in which he has served as lead counsel, he has never lost a civil jury trial. He is particularly skilled at reading juries and persuading them of his client’s position.
Guy earned his Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 1986. Out of college, he served in the U.S. Marine Corps as a combat engineer officer before enrolling in Georgetown University to study law.
He participated in Georgetown’s criminal justice clinic, and, after earning his law degree in 1992, he served as a judge advocate.
In 1998, he earned his LL.M. from the U.S. Army’s Judge Advocate General School with a specialty in criminal law. He graduated first in his class in the program, a testament to his commitment to excellence, hard work, and his ability to understand complex and diverse legal issues and questions.
Guy left criminal law in 1999, joining a large Los Angeles firm to practice business litigation. He went on to found Knott & Glazier, where he practiced for 10 years before founding Glazier Yee in 2012.
Guy frequently lectures on trial advocacy topics.
