Terry Young, Lowndes Photo


Terry Young has tried over 50 jury trials to verdict and more than 200 non-jury trials. He has more than 30 years of experience – in local, state and Federal courts – ranging from disputes over United States presidential elections to multi-national “bet-the-company” litigation, from high profile divorces to multi-million-dollar personal injury cases, from complex business tort and contract disputes to first amendment defenses.

Whether a public persona or a private family, a major corporation or a fledgling new venture, Terry represents both plaintiffs and defendants, from counseling through trial and appeal. While Terry considers himself a trial lawyer and always prepares for a trial, he is a firm believer in dispute resolution whenever appropriate. Importantly, whether arbitration, mediation, divorce, or trial, or negotiating a private settlement, he has the utmost regard for clients’ ultimate objectives.

Sometimes those objectives are to minimize costs – even in the case of a high-profile divorce. Terry has represented a number of public figures in family law matters.
