“Trial lawyers who take tough cases to trial don’t always win. Over 40 years, I have tried more medical malpractice cases than any lawyer in Minnesota. I settled and won most of the cases I have taken – but not all of them. I will never forget the cases I have lost. It is those cases that motivate me to work harder, to be more creative, and to be a better lawyer on every case that follows.” Terry Wade
