A Little About Us

TERRY FOGARTY, Attorney at Law

I grew up on the South Side of Chicago in the Mt. Greenwood neighborhood. After High School I became a paramedic and worked in the Chicagoland area for about five years, when I went back to school. After several years of college, I enlisted in the United States Air Force, where I became a Chinese Linguist. While stationed in Washington DC, I attended law school in the evenings at American University, earning my Juris Doctor and graduating Cum Laude.

Upon my retirement from the Air Force, I returned home to Chicago with my wife and five kids to practice law. I worked for five years as General Counsel for a Civil Litigation (Collections), Real Estate, and Estate Planning firm. I left the firm in early 2015 to focus full-time on Estate Planning and Real Estate. Currently I live with my family on Chicago‚Äôs south side in Palos Park, and have office space in Willow Springs and Orland Park. 

By concentrating on Estate Planning and Real Estate, I keep my area of practice small to minimize overhead and pass the savings on to you. This also allows me to focus on these areas of the law, gaining and maintaining the expertise needed to give you the highest quality legal services that you deserve. I am also a member of WealthCounsel, a collegial group of over 2,500 estate planning attorneys nationwide. This network is a tremendous resource, allowing me to stay up to date on changes in the law as well as current issues and trends in estate planning.
