Bio
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. (now Norton, Rose, Fulbright, 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.
