Attorney Profile

Glen R. Petersen is a partner at Hymel, Davis & Petersen, LLC, located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Focusing his practice on litigation, he represents clients throughout the Baton Rouge area and nationwide in a variety of matters, including white collar criminal defense involving health care and tax fraud, complex commercial litigation and catastrophic personal injury cases.

After graduating from Louisiana State University with a B.S. in business administration in 1973, Mr. Petersen earned his Juris Doctor from what is now called the Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center in 1977. Before going into private practice, he served for several years as a prosecutor, first as a member of the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's office and then with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Louisiana, gaining essential insight into criminal litigation, particularly in the area of Medicaid fraud. Mr. Petersen also served as the director of the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of the Office of the Louisiana Attorney General. Admitted to practice in Louisiana, he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern, Western and Middle Districts of Louisiana, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Mr. Petersen has frequently been asked to speak before groups of fellow professionals on matters related to health care and Medicaid fraud and patient abuse, and his work in that regard resulted in his being named a special advocate for the Louisiana Association of Retarded Citizens. Active in several professional organizations, he has been a member of the House of Delegates of the Louisiana State Bar Association since 2007 and a member of the Law Day Committee of the Baton Rouge Bar Association since 2008.
