Wishing Glenn Hanni a Happy 90th Birthday
We are thrilled to announce that Glenn Hanni has turned 90 years old today. Glenn can only be described as a marathon attorney. He still comes to work every day and around the 5 o’clock hour if he sees you leaving the office he will only ask one question, “Working a half day today?” Glenn is a great mentor and leader and better father and husband. Happy Birthday Glenn!
