Glenn Draper has been representing victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-caused diseases since 2004. He has particular interest in representing veterans exposed to asbestos while serving in the military. Glenn grew up in a Navy family and served several years on active duty in the U.S. Army, where he was named Soldier of the Year for the U.S. Army Support Command Hawaii in 1987. His father and both brothers served in the military, and one brother remains on active duty in the Navy. Glenn is authorized to represent individuals before the Veterans Administration, and is a member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates.
Glenn has taken the deposition of over 300 victims of asbestos disease. “The best part of my job,” Glenn says, “is sitting down with mesothelioma victims to figure out where they were exposed to asbestos, and then preparing them to testify in a way that holds those companies responsible.” Most recently, Glenn has worked with mesothelioma victims that were exposed to such products as cement pipe, brake materials, joint compounds and insulation products. Significant settlements were obtained in each of these cases.
Glenn has appeared in the Superior Courts for King, Pierce, Snohomish, Whatcom, Spokane, Benton, Franklin, Pacific, Chelan, Jefferson, Klickitat, Douglas, Grant, Thurston, and Lewis counties, as well as Multnomah County in Oregon.
Glenn was one of several attorneys at Innocence Project Northwest that were awarded the National Law Journal’s Pro Bono Award in 2000. Glenn has been recognized as a Quiet Hero by the King County Bar Association for his pro bono work.
