Firm Profile

Terpening Law PLLC

Firm Details

Established in 2016, we are recognized for white collar criminal defense, tax, and other complicated litigation against the IRS and other government agencies and departments, and complex civil business litigation and trials in Federal Court and North Carolina Business Court for Charlotte’s executives, professionals, and their businesses. In addition, we have become their go-to firm for crisis management, including government investigations, employer-employee disputes, investor and shareholder issues, and business divorces.

We are guided by a time-tested philosophy. We listen to and collaborate with the client. We keep them informed and have them inform us. We fight, if necessary, until long after what other lawyers would say is the bitter end – and then we win when others may not have. We fear no person. We write well. We speak well, and we speak truth to power. We solve the entire problem.

We were educated at top schools. We clerked for federal judges. We were trained at, and then managed, excellent national law firms. We bring to your matter the perfectionism and quality that you would expect from that background. We go beyond it.

In an era where litigators try few cases, we are known for our experience and skill in the courtroom, and we enjoy taking the case to trial when it best suits the client’s interests. We take on a small number of cases so that we can devote proper focus to your case. Our core value is getting the problem solved so that you can get on with your business and your life.
