In 2005, Seth returned home to Louisville, to practice with one of Kentucky's largest and oldest defense firms.

In March 2011, Seth opened the Louisville, Kentucky law firm, Gladstein Law Firm, PLLC, to help injured people recover against those who have wronged them. Seth's years of defending physicians, hospitals, and nursing homes have provided him invaluable experience and insight necessary to evaluate and handle these types of complicated cases.
