Glenn Pulley, a Partner in Gentry Locke’s Business Litigation group, was inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers in 2002. Glenn served as Chairman of the Virginia Committee of the American College of Trial Lawyers in 2013 and 2014. Since his career began in 1976, Glenn has tried more than 150 civil jury trials for plaintiffs and defendants involving personal injury/property damage, product liability, commercial, construction, employment, estates, and eminent domain. For many years he has represented institutional clients including the housing authority, the school board, and the Chapter 10 Services Board in his community.  Glenn’s trial experience has helped many clients in the courtroom, and they have often benefited from Glenn’s advice on how to avoid the expense, inconvenience, and risk of litigation.

  • Jury trials tried to conclusion
  • US National Parks to visit
  • Hours traveled to Bangkok – a spectacular trip
  • Sons who make me proud – (lawyer & TV producer)
  • You’ve had an illustrious career as a lawyer. Did you ever consider a different profession?

    I grew up in Southampton County in eastern Virginia where we were outdoors all the time. Much of our food came from the land. We gardened, raised chickens, fished and hunted quail. I have a tremendous respect for our natural resources and might have enjoyed working for the Virginia Game Commission to help ensure the proper management and preservation of game and fish in our region.

  • What do you do when you first arrive home each evening?

    I should say, “hug my wife,” but in reality, I hug Annie first – my English Setter hunting dog – and then I hug my wife. I always take Annie for a walk, too, before or after dinner.

  • What lesson have you learned in life that you live by every day?

    For seven summers, my family invited a child into our home through the American Belarusian Relief Organization program that helps children of Chernobyl find clean food, rest, and sanctuary from their contaminated environment. Through this experience, I found that, by paying attention to people who are not as well-off as we are, we can learn so much.
