Meet Terry

Attorney Terry DeSalvo is originally from Youngstown, Ohio and moved to Southwest Florida in 2003. In 2007 Terry graduated Magna Cum Laude from Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) and quickly began preparing to enter law school. After FGCU, Terry attended Florida Coastal School of Law (FCSL), in Jacksonville, where he graduated Cum Laude and in the Top 14% of his law class. During law school, Terry gained experience as a Judicial Intern for the Honorable James R. Adams in Lee County. He also tried and won his first case, while in his 3L year of law school, as a Certified Legal Intern with the State Attorney’s Office of the 20th Judicial Circuit.

Before joining Family First Legal Group as Junior Partner, Terry had practiced as an Associate Attorney exclusively in the area of Family Law in Lee, Charlotte, and Collier counties. Terry believes in being patient and understanding, but not backing down from a fight when needed. Overall, his continued mission is to be a great advocate for his clients at Family First Legal Group, a respectful colleague, and an upstanding member of the Southwest Florida community.

When Terry is not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, and following his beloved Cleveland Browns.
