Background:

Glenn W. Cunningham is an experienced trial lawyer, with the legal expertise and the passion to help victims and their families secure justice in cases involving abuse, neglect or wrongful death.

Glenn W. Cunningham began his legal career in 1990 in the internationally renowned law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski, L.L.P. in Houston, Texas. In 1994, Glenn became a named-principal in the firm Boston & Cunningham, P.C., before joining Mayor, Day, Caldwell & Keeton, L.L.P. (now Andrews Kurth, L.L.P.) in Houston, Texas to strengthen the firm's professional negligence section in 1997.

In 2001, the San Antonio, Texas law firm of Maloney & Maloney, P.C. brought Glenn to San Antonio to head the firm's "nursing home negligence" section. In 2004, Glenn formed the Law Offices of Glenn W. Cunningham, where his mission to make a difference continues.

Success:

Glenn W. Cunningham has distinguished himself as a trial lawyer. He has achieved verdicts and settlements totaling tens of millions of dollars; results that not only provide relief for victims and their families, but deter future unacceptable behavior.

Glenn W. Cunningham credits much of his success as a trial lawyer to the 10 years that he spent as a defense attorney. During the years that Glenn defended doctors and hospitals, he learned the ins-and-outs of the health care system, the tricks that doctors, hospitals and their lawyers use to defend meritorious claims, where hospitals hide documents and relevant records, and how healthcare professionals cover for each other. Glenn utilizes this "inside " knowledge to advantage when prosecuting healthcare professionals for their negligence.

Professional Recognition:

Glenn W. Cunningham was named one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Texas by The National Trial Lawyers and a Top Medical Malpractice Lawyer in San Antonio by S.A. Scene. Glenn was selected for inclusion in the Texas Super Lawyers, has an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating, and a Superb "10.0" rating from AVVO, also the highest rating.

Glenn W. Cunningham is on the Executive Committee of The National Trial Lawyers and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and is a past President of the San Antonio Trial Lawyers Association. Glenn is honored to serve on the Boards of such fine organizations -- organizations that fight daily to protect the rights of Texans to access the courthouse to secure justice.

Glenn W. Cunningham is recognized by colleagues as a scholar, in addition to being a talented trial lawyer. Beginning as a student at Baylor Law School, where he was the Managing Editor of the Baylor Law Review, and continuing to the present, Glenn has published papers and articles on relevant legal topics, and is a frequent lecturer at statewide conferences.
