Terry joined the firm in October 2015, working at our Diss office, specialising in residential conveyancing. He has been a solicitor since 1996 and was a legal executive before that. Terry worked for Mid Suffolk District Council after leaving school in 1977 and it was at the council, he began his legal career. His main role in the legal team was to sell council houses. Terry then decided to progress his legal career, by working in private practice in 1989 and since then, he has developed many years of experience, principally specialising in residential conveyancing, although along the way, Terry has been an advocate in the criminal courts and has worked in Wills and Probate. However, Terry now specialises in most aspects of residential conveyancing, whether it be sales and purchases, mortgages or transfers arising from probate, matrimonial matters or even gifts.
Terry is a “local lad”, as he grew up in Dickleburgh and attended the former Diss Secondary Modern School for Boys and after a working life of more than 40 years, he says working in Diss is like “coming back home”. Terry often bumps into familiar faces whether they be family or friends and enjoys being reunited with people he knows very well but hadn’t seen for years. Indeed, quite a few of them have become his clients.
