Terry Legal Solutions, LLC

I am an estate planning and business law attorney serving individual clients, corporations, and churches and other nonprofit organizations. I work with my clients in the preparation, revision and updating of estate planning documents including powers of attorney, advance directives, wills, and trusts. I also provide counsel on matters related to corporate formations and governance, and employment discrimination and civil rights claims.

Following nearly a decade working at two international law firms, I founded Terry Legal Solutions to focus on a more personalized, client-centric approach to legal services. I wanted a legal practice that fostered an environment of comfortable, unrushed conversations.

A practice where clients are heard and understood, and where I provide tailored strategic counseling and solutions to address their unique needs.

I am dedicated to building stronger communities through volunteer leadership and service to nonprofit organizations that benefit Montgomery County. I serve on the executive committee of the Board of Trustees of BlackRock Center for the Arts. I am a past two, three-term Commissioner with Montgomery County’s Human Rights Commission and former board Chair of Friends of the Human Rights Commission, Inc. I am actively engaged in conversations and initiatives around human rights, diversity, and racial equity to help ensure a vital and successful Montgomery County.
