Glen Levine: Business is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

The game of business is a marathon and not a sprint. You need to prepare for the ups and downs and all the unexpected moments that arise. But most importantly, when things get tough, you must never quit, but keep pushing forward to reach your goal. Nobody knows this better than endurance athlete and Senior Founding Partner at The Law Offices of Anidjar and Levine, Glen Levine.

Along with his business partner, Marc Anidjar, they have won over $450 million for their clients. In that time, Glen has also been able to squeeze in a full ironman triathlon, several marathons, half ironman races, and half marathon. Glen shares, “A good portion of being a successful endurance athlete is handling the psychological component of racing. You need to dig deep and quiet the voice in your head that wants you to quit.” The mental focus required for an endurance athlete directly translates to being a successful attorney and businessperson.

A fateful lunch with a local colleague set his life in a new direction. Glen Levine, Senior Foundation Partner at The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, shares, “I went out to lunch with an attorney friend Marc Anidjar to discuss cases. We had very similar approaches to client service and eventually landed on the topic of how we wish law firms treated their clients like family.” Those magic works sparked an idea, and not long after, The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine was born.

Glen and Marc launched their law firm in 2005 in free office space that Glen’s father provided to them. Always ready to roll up their sleeves, the dynamic duo put together office furniture and set the whole place up. Many offices and hundreds of employees later, their get it done attitude has not changed. Glen adds, “I am a big believer in not asking my staff to do something that I am not willing to do myself. I constantly meet with my team to discuss strategy and ideas on how to improve our legal and client service approach.” That collaborative approach has proved not only successful for business but also for creating a positive work environment.

The Fort Lauderdale-based personal injury firm has additional offices in Naples, Jacksonville, West Palm Beach, and Orlando. Their clients rely on the firm to help protect them during their most harrowing moments, but Anidjar & Levine’s commitment doesn’t end there. They have made it a fundamental part of their business to give back to the community they call home. The firm supports the Broward Sherriff’s Foundation, Family Fun Day at The Children’s Science Museum, Miami Dolphin’s Cancer Challenge, Jewish Federation, Kids in Distress, MADD, and many others. Through charitable, civic, and professional organizations, they give back in time, talent, and dollars to better the lives of those around them.

A South Florida native, Glen learned the value of hard work from his father, an attorney, and a builder. He received his B.A. from Tulane University in New Orleans in 1995 before receiving his J.D. from Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad College of Law in South Florida in 1998. He has been recognized by numerous prestigious societies and publications for his achievements, including the Elite Tier of America’s Top Lawyers by the American Law Society in 2017, the Legal Elite by the Florida Trend Magazine in 2017, and the Top-Rated Lawyers by the Miami Herald in 2015, to name a few. Levine has consistently been awarded the AV Preeminent rating by Martindale-Hubbell, recognizing him for the highest level of professional excellence.

One of Glen’s most notable cases was representing a Broward County boy injured while boarding a bus, resulting in a substantial recovery and the state’s passing of a claims bill to fund the settlement. It was a long and arduous case, but Glen handled it like we would any marathon race. He kept his eye on the end game, takes each step as it came to him, and always persevered to get it done.
