The Law Firm of Thomas H. Terry, PC
About Attorney Thomas H. Terry, Esq.
In Colorado Springs
Attorney, Thomas H. Terry, was born in a small
Western town the son of a financially-strapped school teacher who moonlighted outside the classroom as a
part-time county judge and justice of the peace. One
of six children (plus five Native-American foster sisters) by age five he had learned to fire a rifle, ride a horse bareback, and defend himself from his older sister’s snake collection (a skill he would eventually find transferable to the legal profession).
By age 21 he had lived in over a dozen cities and two
foreign countries (not counting several years in Southern
California, which seemed pretty foreign). By age 33 he
had earned four college degrees, including undergraduate
majors and minors in politics, education, business, and
psychology, and two graduate degrees in political science
and law. That same year he received an advanced degree from the School of Hard Knocks, when he was kicked flat on his back by an unexpected health challenge, and had his fourth child born with serious health problems, resulting in a painful, but full recovery for both father and son. Colorado Springs has been home since May of 2000.
Today, Thomas H. Terry has established himself as a tough and independent-minded attorney and businessman, and strong family advocate.
