Terry is a Founding Partner at Brown & Crouppen. As a kid, he always wanted to be a lawyer, inspired by episodes of Perry Mason, where he learned that lawyers could always make things right by sorting out the facts and revealing the truth.
After graduating from Washington University School of Law, Terry served as a public defender in the 22nd Judicial Court. In 1979, he founded Brown & Crouppen alongside partner Ron Brown, guided by the belief that once the truth is revealed, our clients will finally get the fair compensation they deserve. Today, Terry continues to fight for clients in a broad range of cases, including personal injury, motor vehicle accidents, pharmaceutical litigation, medical devices, nursing homes, slip and fall, and wrongful death.
He is an avid supporter of dozens of local non-profit organizations, including Sista Strut, Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure, Annie Malone, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Habitat for Humanity. You can also find Terry on BCTV, where he is one of the hosts of “3 Lawyers Eating Sandwiches” and a voice actor on “Terry’s Safety Squad.”
