After graduating from Penn State in 2009, Glace taught geography at Springton Lake Middle School in Media, Pennsylvania, and Spanish at Collegium Charter School in Exton, Pennsylvania. However, he had not forgotten the crux of his conversation with that school board member. Glace decided to take the Law School Admission Test and was offered a full academic scholarship to Florida International University (FIU) College of Law.
"I truly enjoyed teaching, but I also recognized that this was an excellent opportunity to 'make a go' of a law career," Glace said. He earned his juris doctor degree from FIU in 2013.
Today, Glace is a partner in the law firm Vargas Gonzalez Hevia Baldwin, LLP in Miami, Florida. The firm provides professional counseling and strategic advice, in addition to full-service litigation and trial representation. He enjoys combining both of his professions — teacher and lawyer — as a coach for FIU's College of Law Trial Team.
Asked what he enjoys most about his career, Glace said it's obtaining the best possible results for his clients, who range from individuals involved in catastrophic personal injury cases to homeowners with unsettled property claims.
"The legal system can be quite challenging. When you help someone out of a difficult situation, it's extremely rewarding," he said.
Glace lives in Miami. His sister Lindsay Glace, a 2006 alumna, and a cousin also are Penn State graduates.
