Chicago personal injury attorney Glenn E. Orr
Mr. Orr joined Shea Law Group in December 2005. Mr. Orr focuses his practice on a variety of personal injury matters including the representation of victims of car accidents, slip and falls and construction accidents. His dedication, experience and aggressive representation of his clients have won him the praise of clients as well as opposing counsel in personal injury and contract cases.
Raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Glenn enlisted in the U.S. Air Force after high school, and while on active duty moving airfreight during tours stateside and overseas took evening college courses at Wesley College in Dover, DE and University of Maryland’s overseas extension program in Korea. Upon his return stateside, Glenn spent his final year of active duty moving airfreight on the “grave shift” and attending college full-time during the day at Wesley College (Delaware) on a tennis scholarship.
After being discharged from active duty in 1983, Glenn attended the University of Missouri, where he graduated in 1987 with degrees in Economics and Finance. Thereafter, Glenn spent nearly fifteen years in the financial services industry as a registered investment advisor with a major full-service investment firm, before pursuing and obtaining his law degree at Chicago’s John Marshall Law School.
In his spare time, Glenn is an avid golfer and tennis player, and contributes a substantial amount of his time to pro bono work, individually and as a volunteer attorney with Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS).
