TERRENCE J. MCGOWAN, PARTNER

Terry specializes in Criminal law and has extensive experience in all aspects of criminal defense, including complex federal and state prosecutions.

With more than 25 years of experience, Terry is considered one of Central Pennsylvania’s preeminent criminal defense attorneys. He has taken well over 60 jury trials to verdict, and has helped thousands of clients overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Terry’s ability to communicate effectively to achieve favorable results has earned him the respect of federal, state and local law enforcement officers, judges and prosecutors. Terry's knack for opening doors helps him negotiate the best possible solutions to his clients' legal problems. Because prosecutors and law enforcement personnel know that Terry will never shy away from an opportunity to take them to the mat on a tough case, they are usually willing to discuss and resolve cases in advance of trial.

Terry’s recent trials have centered on the defense of companies and individuals accused of white collar crimes and complex Federal criminal actions, including one of the lengthiest Criminal trials ever held in the Middle District of Pennsylvania. He has also litigated several complicated cases on behalf of clients accused of failing to collect and pay state sales taxes. Terry’s representation of students and teachers facing charges related to their conduct on and off school grounds, has allowed them to restore their reputations and return to school. Terry maintains active memberships in the Pennsylvania and National Associations of Criminal Defense Attorneys.
