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.
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’s south side in Palos Park, and also have office
space in Oak Forest, where I am an Associate Attorney at the Talarico Law Group.
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.
