She went on to study at Emory University School of Law where she earned a juris doctor degree in 1977.

Her net worth was well established.

However, she left Delta Air Lines in the same year, to accept the position of Chief Presiding Judge of Fulton County in Georgia becoming the first African-American person to serve in that position. She remained there until 2000 when she began working on the television series entitled ‘’Judge Hatchett’’, which became popular nationwide and aired for a total of nine seasons until 2008, earning two daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Legal Courtroom Program.

In the next year, Glenda appeared in an episode of ‘’Every Woman’’, a TV series documentary hosted by Byron Allen, before returning to writing in 2010, which resulted in another book, ‘’Dare to Take Charge: How to Live Your Life on Purpose’’. It outdid the success of her first book, and eventually became the number one National Bestseller.

In 2014, Hatchett created The Hatchett Firm, a company focused on Catastrophic Personal Injury, Class Action and Medical Malpractice lawsuits. As of her most recent projects, Glenda has been the hostess of ‘’The Verdict with Judge Hatchett’’, a legal TV show, praised by the audience and holding nine out of ten stars on IMDB.
