After several years as an associate counsel for the public defender, Terry opened his own law firm and helped to make Nolan & Nolan a household name in Muskegon County. He is presently the sole stockholder of Nolan Law Offices and his office is located directly across the street from the entrance to the Muskegon County Courthouse. In his illustrious career in criminal defense, he has racked up dozens of felony and misdemeanor not guilty verdicts in trials by jury.
