Wesley Glass is a living example of author Malcom Gladwell’s rule, “You have to have 10,000 hours in a subject to be an expert.” With over 30 years of experience as a litigation attorney, Wesley has been in court almost every day since graduating from law school. He has selected thousands of jurors, tried countless cases, and has been on trial in every borough, across Long Island and in Westchester and upstate; with an astounding 90% win percentage. Today, as senior trial counsel at the law firm of Edelman, Krasin and Jaye PLLC, Wesley’s extensive experience gives him the necessary edge to handle the most challenging and complex personal injury cases.
Upon graduating from New York Law School, Wesley began practicing as a member of the Legal Aid Society, where he focused on criminal law for the first seven years of his career. He then moved into civil practice, working for nearly 20 years as a senior litigator for insurance companies. Wesley’s keen insight as to what defenses an insurance company may have in a case came about as a result of his experience within that role. In 2016, Wesley transferred his skills and insight to the plaintiff side and began representing injured accident victims. Last year, he joined EKJ Law, where he specializes in the practice areas of complex personal injury matters, construction accidents, and product liability cases.
Throughout his successful career, Wesley has been the go-to attorney for the most serious personal injury cases, from death cases to amputation cases and all things in between. On behalf of his clients, he has achieved numerous million-dollar verdicts and settlements. Wesley is admitted to the New York State Bar and to the United States Southern and Eastern Districts in New York.
