A Mediator Grounded In The Real World

Terry Brown was raised in Illinois, and prior to becoming an attorney, he worked in many different jobs in the region's agriculture, shipping and freight industries, including: deckhand, barge cleaner, dredge operator, boat pilot, stevedore (dockworker), crane operator, truck driver, truck loader, welder, steel-cutter, farm hand, and railroad repair and maintenance technician.

These jobs introduced him to, and informed him about, many of the industries his legal practice would eventually concern. He remains a regional resource for railroad and maritime legal issues in the state of Illinois.

As a result of his experiences, Terry Brown has empathy toward the conditions workers face, the dangers present to the public and the obligations and legal exposure that employers and insurance companies experience when in conflict. His goal is to facilitate practical and durable resolutions to conflicts whenever possible.
