Before relocating to North Carolina in 2015 with his wife to focus on their growing family, Terence practiced for six years in New York City, first with an established medical malpractice defense litigation firm, before transitioning to one of the largest law firms in the country with its practice entirely devoted to insurance law. There, Terence primarily focused his practice on representing primary, excess and reinsurance carriers in coverage disputes and investigations. He also served as monitoring counsel on several high exposure medical malpractice insurance and reinsurance programs across the country, supervising local counsel and participating in the litigation and resolution strategies. After moving to North Carolina and prior to joining Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP, Terence spent several years litigating with a mid-sized regional civil litigation defense firm in the Carolinas.
