On Thursday, October 12, 2023, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania issued an order temporarily suspending attorney Daniel Liam Glennon from practicing law. The order was granted following a joint petition for emergency temporary suspension. Glennon, who was admitted to the bar in 2018, is prohibited from practicing law until further notice from the court.
The case is entitled “In the Matter of Daniel Liam Glennon” with case no. 138 DB 2023.
The court’s order requires Glennon to comply with the provisions of Pa.R.D.E. 217, which includes notifying his clients and fiduciary entities of his suspension and taking steps to protect their rights. Additionally, all financial institutions where Glennon holds fiduciary funds must freeze those accounts until further action is taken by a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
This order constitutes an imposition of public discipline and is an exception to the confidentiality requirement of Rule 402.
