Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Christina L Adkins

    I endorse Terri Cromley, Esq. without hesitation. Terri Cromley is a strong advocate for all her clients. She works tirelessly to help her clients achieve the best resolution possible. Not only does she work hard to help her clients but also for her community. I do not think I have ever met another person who is as involved with community organizations as Terri Cromley. Whenever there is a need she is on the fundraising committee and ready to throw an event to raise money for various charities. I have personally worked on the Manatee County chapter of Florida Association for Women Lawyers fundraising committee for approximately five years and she has planned events ranging from a golf tournament to a poker night to a Kentucky Derby party to drag queen bingo to a chili cook-off and boating for backpacks. Her ideas and inventiveness are endless just as her willingness to advocate for her clients.
