Our Founder

Rodney L. Purser

Rodney L. Purser (“Rod”) was a partner in the law firm of Purser & Glenn, PLLC, formerly known as Echols, Purser & Glenn, PLLC. Having had 50 years of experience and being admitted to the North Carolina State Bar in 1970, he spent most of his time and energy focusing on real estate; both residential and commercial. Solving problems and overcoming difficult challenges gave him strong resolve. 

Rod loved the practice of law, cherished his staff, and had a passion for helping all those that he came in contact with in the industry. He particularly enjoyed the actual closing and would keep everyone relaxed by sharing a few jokes. In addition to his passion for law, he had a passion for family and farming. 

Not only did he have a home garden that he relished sharing, he also owned White Rock Farms with two of his three sons. He was an avid Carolina fan, rarely missing an opportunity to cheer his Tar Heels on. He was also famous for sharing his pecan fudge clusters to the delight of his colleagues, family, and friends. A tedious recipe, he learned to make his famous clusters from his mother at the age of 12 and used her “Magic Spoon” for every batch. 

Rodney was a pillar of his community, his family, and this firm. His passion and dedication to the practice of law and all of his clients helped to make Purser and Glenn what it is today. His wisdom, advice, and guidance carry on with all of the attorneys and staff at Purser and Glenn. His legacy will forever live on within the firm and with anyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.
