Steve Terry is the founding partner of TSR Injury Law and has worked in the personal injury field his entire legal career. He started in a downtown law firm as a law clerk and associate, then opened his own firm, and eventually partnered with Chuck Slane and then Rich Ruohonen.
Steve was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. He moved to Minnesota for undergraduate studies and accomplished a degree, with Honors, from the University of Minnesota. He attended William Mitchell College of Law and graduated Magna Cum Laude. While in law school, he served on its prestigious Law Review. He currently is elected to the Executive Committee of the Minnesota Association of Justice. In addition, he also volunteers on MAJ’s education, publication, legislative, and membership committees.
Steve has helped thousands of people in Minnesota, and across the United States, with injuries arising from car crashes, dangerous products, animal attacks, and practically any other manner a person could be injured. His recent cases include:
- $750,000 from workers’ comp, bodily injury, and underinsured motorist case
- $475,000 rear end collision car accident case settlement
- $850,000 for a brain injury to a child who fell from an elevator .
He has been selected by his attorney peers as both a Rising Star and Super Lawyer in Minnesota, which is an honor granted to only the top 5% of attorneys in the state. A large majority of new cases are referred directly from other practicing attorneys or past clients, which reflects well on his character, work ethic, and ability as a Personal Injury Lawyer.
Steve also handles appellate cases and most recently won the Munoz case, which clarified the responsibility of the at-fault party to pay for non-covered medical bills of the injured party. Many deem this case a landmark decision.
Steve lives with his wife and two daughters in Shakopee, Minnesota and to relax rides a Harley Davidson, gardens, and roots for the University of Michigan football team, the Timberwolves, and any team that plays against the Packers.
