Katie Glenn

Katie Glenn

Of Counsel

Katie is a fierce competitor who gets results. She advocates for her clients with the same focus, drive, and dogged determination that helped her win three NCAA swimming championships before moving on to set seven world records in masters swimming. She has deep experience in all types of insurance disputes, including working on behalf of insurance companies for over five years. During that time, Katie learned firsthand how carriers analyze claims and what makes them tick. This unique perspective from both sides of insurance coverage practice gives her an invaluable edge in counseling her policyholder clients.

Katie has a particular knack for achieving successful outcomes for her clients early in litigation through targeted pretrial practice. Her strategic approach to coverage disputes and her keen ability to simplify complex issues make her a powerful advocate for policyholders.  Her passion for research and writing is especially useful for coverage litigation and policy reviews. As a current business owner, Katie understands the challenges businesses face on a daily basis and uses that insight to anticipate her clients’ needs.

Katie lives and works between Dallas and Vail, Colorado, where she draws energy and inspiration from mountain living. She spends her winters skiing and snowshoeing and her summers hiking, swimming and cycling.
