Summary

Managing Partner H. Terry Hutchens started the firm in 1980 with a staff of five. Over the course of nearly four decades, the practice has developed into the HIGH PERFORMANCE LAW™ firm it is today, employing over 280 people with offices throughout Fayetteville and in Cameron, Charlotte, Southern Pines, Southport, and Wilmington, NC as well as in Columbia, SC.

Terry concentrates his practice on matters pertaining to default services and real estate including development, finance, liquidation, and litigation.

During his 40-year career as a licensed attorney, Terry has represented large residential construction companies, providing the legal know-how to enable his clients to acquire raw land, obtain zoning, negotiate required utilities and infrastructure from municipal and private providers, develop subdivisions, and build and sell homes. Terry has represented and advised commercial construction companies in the same matters, enabling his clients to build retail/office apartments and office buildings, shopping centers, industrial parks, and mixed-use properties; and he has also provided the legal assistance necessary for his clients to build and manage apartment complexes in NC & SC, some built in cooperation with federal (Farm Home Administration and HUD) programs for specific populations (low-income, elderly, special needs) as well as apartment complexes for the general population.

For almost four decades, Terry has been trying cases across North Carolina in state and federal courts (including Bankruptcy Court) as well as handling appeals to the North Carolina Court of Appeals and North Carolina Supreme Court. Although a lot of his trials have been about business or real estate, Terry has tried cases as varied as age discrimination, fraud, unfair and deceptive trade practices, contracts, and shareholder disputes.
