LUDINGTON — David Glancy is the fourth person to put his name in the ring for the 51st Circuit Court judge race. For the past year Glancy has been Mason County’s court appointed defense attorney.

David and his wife, Kathryn, operate private law practices in Ludington and Manistee and provide legal services in Mason, Manistee, Oceana and Lake counties.

Glancy received a bachelor’s of art degree in political science from Hope College in 2001. He received his Juris Doctor from Michigan State University College of Law in 2004 where he was the managing editor of production for the Journal of Medicine and Law. He was admitted to the Michigan State Bar in 2004.

He is a member of the Mason-Lake Bar Association and served as president from 2005 to 2007. He is also a member of the Manistee Bar Association. For the past eight years he has been involved with the Ludington swim program and is currently head coach for the Ludington High School girls varsity swim team.

Glancy has defended some high profile cases in the past few years. Most recently he was assigned to defend Eric John Knysz, the man who killed Michigan State Police Trooper Paul Butterfield. He also is the defense attorney for Sean Phillips, the man who was convicted of unlawful imprisonment of his 4-month-old baby and is currently facing murder charges.

David and Kathryn live in Ludington with their children.
