At all times he has shown me to be a person of the highest honor
As an Attorney, admitted to practice in the District of Columbia, including the United States Supreme Court for more than four decades and admitted to practice in the Virgin Islands, and as a past Professor of Law, I can state, without fear of successful contradiction, that Glenn Ivey is an Attorney upon whom other attorneys rely. I have had many occasions to work with and witness Glenn at work, and without equivocation, at all times he has shown me to be a person of the highest honor, unblemished integrity and flawless principle.
