OWNER - ATTORNEY
David Glickler is an aggressive, yet compassionate attorney with the experience needed to handle complicated cases. As a result of his experience as an Assistant Attorney General and as a judge, he has had the opportunity to cultivate unparalleled connections with many people in the legal community (judges, prosecutors, attorneys, etc.) across the state giving him access to a strong network of resources that he can put to use for you and your case. He is a problem solver with the ability to think outside the box and consider a case from all angles.
While attending Rutgers University, David made a perfect score on the LSAT (entrance exam for law school), a feat achieved by only 0.1% of those who take it. Because of this outstanding achievement, he received a scholarship to attend SMU Dedman School of Law in Dallas, where he graduated and passed the bar in 1993. While in law school, David clerked for Burleson, Pate and Gibson, where he assisted in numerous jury trials, including two significant federal white-collar trials. He was also active in SMU’s criminal clinic, where he represented indigent defendants in several jury trials as lead counsel, obtaining acquittals in all cases.
After graduating, David worked as a law clerk at the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals (CCA) for sixteen months. His work there included writing, reviewing, and researching important legal and constitutional issues. While serving with the CCA, David observed veteran attorneys arguing important constitutional matters on a weekly basis.
Following the clerkship, David joined the Williamson County Attorney's Office as an Assistant County Attorney. His primary responsibilities were misdemeanor prosecution and juvenile cases. During his six years working there, David took and passed the Criminal Law Specialization Exam, and has maintained his status as a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist since 1999. To be eligible to sit for this exam, David had to show that he met the requirement of having experience in a large number of criminal trials, court appearances and appellate cases. He easily met those qualifications.
In March of 2001, David was hired by then-Attorney General John Cornyn into the Special Crimes Division as a special prosecutor. David has handled hundreds of cases across the State of Texas, appearing in over 100 District Courtrooms and in Federal Court, seeking justice on behalf of all citizens of the State of Texas. In 2007, under Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, David was promoted to the position of Deputy Division Chief of the White-Collar Crime and Public Integrity Section, supervising as many as seven attorneys. He is widely considered an expert in gambling laws and other white collar crimes. He continued supervising the White-Collar Crime Section until taking office as Judge of Hays County Court at Law #2 in January 2015.
While serving as judge, David Glickler was honored to be able to preside over the Hays County Veterans Treatment Court. Because of his passion for helping those who have served our country, after taking over that court, Judge Glickler worked hard to successfully increase the number of troubled veterans whose lives were able to be turned around. He also worked with the Texas Veterans Commission to obtain grants that nearly tripled the budget of this court, at no cost to Hays County taxpayers. He recognizes the need for assistance for our veterans and continues to be supportive of the Hays County Veterans Court.
David Glickler was Board Certifed in Juvenile Law in 2001. Therefore as Judge of Hays County Court at Law #2, David also presided over all juvenile matters. He increased his experience, knowledge, and compassion for children in the juvenile justice system. He also presided over probate court where he gained valuable experience and knowledge of wills, trusts, and estate law.
After leaving the bench, David joined the John A Hall & Associates, PC Law Firm. He has had success defending adults and juveniles and increased his experience handling estates, probates and preparing wills and other estate documents. David also had the opportunity to help clients get fair recoveries after suffering personal injuries as a result of other's careless actions.
David is married to Nicole Cloutier, a Board Certified Advanced Paralegal. His daughter Morgan graduated from Hays and is currently a Senior at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. His son Austin also graduated from Hays and is currently an active duty Marine. His stepson Luke is a leukemia survivor, a current Sophomore at Hays High School and active in the Hays Marine JROTC program.
In his leisure time, David enjoys concerts, watching sports, and traveling. Several years ago, he began a personal quest to learn more about our presidents and began reading presidential biographies.
