Terry Hanson graduated with a BA from the University of South Florida (USF) in 1968, he earned his Master’s Degree in Management from Central Michigan University in 1974 and after a long career in aviation he went back to school and earned his Juris Doctorate from the Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law at Barry University. After law school he joined the Hanson Law Office with his brother, Michael A. Hanson, Esquire, where he focused on Family Law, Wills, Trusts, and Estates Law, and Contracts.
More recently he opened the E. R. Hanson Law Office with his son, Eric R. Hanson, where they practice law together to this day.
Terry continues to focus on Family Law, Wills, Trusts, and Estates Law, and Bankruptcy.
He has been both a Petitioner and a Respondent in divorce cases which has given him patience, compassion, and perspective.
Terry feels that the practice of Family Law should range from paternity issue through the dissolution of marriage and its attendant sub-genres, all the way to the preparation of Wills and Trusts. He works with professional Estate Planners to specifically tailor an individual’s will to accomplish the goals the individual has developed with his estate planner.
Finally, Terry feels that every person should not only have a Will, but also have prepared “Quality of Life” documents. These include a Durable Power of Attorney, a Living Will, and a Designation of Pre-Need Guardians of the Person and the Property.
