Get to Know Attorney Terra Gross
I’m a mediator, attorney, and musician, originally from the Portland, Oregon, performing arts community. Before moving to the Midwest to attend law school, I worked as a freelance violinist and English instructor and earned a graduate degree in secondary education.
In addition to my private practice at Attuned Legal, I answer questions from small landlords who call the Eviction Help Illinois hotline and serve as a member of the Chicago Bar Association’s Modern Law Practice Committee. Since becoming a licensed attorney in Illinois in 2013, I’ve devoted myself to civil legal matters:
- As a civil litigation attorney representing state employees and agencies, I learned to appreciate the inner workings of Illinois government.
- Clerking for a Cook County Chancery Division judge, I gained an intimate view of the civil court system where I now practice.
- Representing insurers in property coverage disputes at boutique and national Chicago-based firms, I developed proactive risk management skills.
- Volunteering with Illinois Free Legal Answers Online and Chicago Volunteer Legal Services on property matters brings me to the front lines of the challenges faced by Illinois residents today.
