Meet Terri

Terri L. North concentrates her law practice in estate planning and probate. Her probate practice includes helping families with guardianships and conservatorships as well as administering probate estates after the death of a loved one. She also helps her clients create trusts so that their families can avoid probate and helps those families administer the trust.

Terri graduated in 1979 from Henry Ford II High School in Sterling Heights. She attended Kalamazoo College where she earned a B.A. in Economics in 1983. She received her law degree from Detroit College of Law in 1987, graduating cum laude.
Terri served on the Board of Directors of National Association of Career Women – Macomb Chapter. In 1998, she was named Career Woman of the Year. She served on the Board of Directors of the Central Macomb County Chamber of Commerce from 1994-2000 and was Chairwomen of the Board in 1999. Terri served on the Board of Regents for Baker College – Shelby Charter Township from 1995 until 2015.

Until recently, Terri served on the Board of Directors for the Sterling Heights Chamber of Commerce (and was the Chairperson in 2015), and the Macomb County Literacy Partners (she was their president in 2017). She is currently on the Board for the Anton Art Center in Mt. Clemens and will be the Chairperson in 2020.

When she is not at work, Terri is an amateur artist and an avid bicyclist.
