terry c. frank

Terry founded Terry Frank Law in 2020 after almost twenty years with two venerated Virginia and North Carolina firms. She recognized the need for a more specialized and flexible approach to the issues facing her business and individual clients and left behind the limitations imposed by a corporate legal structure.

Having honed her skills in high-stakes and complex legal matters, she now concentrates her practice in commercial, real estate and probate litigation, estate planning and probate administration. Terry frequently acts as local counsel for cases pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, having handled hundreds of federal court cases in her twenty+ years as a trial lawyer. She also handles select social and environmental justice cases when able.

Approachable and responsive, Terry works closely with her clients to provide pragmatic advice and offer realistic solutions, with a deep commitment to their legal successes.
