I have focused my entire career on helping victims of all types of accidents receive fair compensation for their injuries.   I believe what seperates me from the rest is individual attention to your case and over 20 years of experience winning jury trials.  I am not afraid to take a tough case to trial if that is what it takes to get a fair result for my clients.   In addition, by focusing on a limited area of the law, personal injury, nursing home, medical malpractice and employment rights, I am better able to manage my practice and keep on top of developments in the law.

Great result in my personal injury case
Mr. Heady was professional throughout his representation of me. He was always available to take my calls and respond to my emails. He got me a very good settlement in a case that two other lawyers turned down.

Great lawyer
Not only is Terry a wonderful lawyer but he is a wonderful person I spoke to several lawyers about my case Terry called me back that day around 7 pm explain to me my options and talk to me for good amount of time immediately he started working on my case. Terry went beyond what a regular nine-to-five lawyer would. he took the time to explain legal terminology in detail me . Me and my family are very grateful to him thank you Terry me and my family will always appreciate the good work you did. To this lawyer I was not just a client profile on his desk he went beyond my expectations

Very Vigilant Attorney!
I spoke to several attorneys ahead of my case, and Terry was the one who seemed to really know the law and who was able to convey for me the pros and cons of my situation. He worked very hard on preparing the case and impressed me with his work ethic and compassion for me as a human being.

Fast settlement
Mr. Heady was amazing! Called me back right away & I couldn't believe how fast he got me a more than fair settlement. I would highly recommend him as I got my settlement in just a couple of months when I knew going in it could take years!
