Emily Terhune

Office Manager

Being born and raised in Grand Rapids, I have been a part of the vibrant community here all of my life. I graduated from Baker College in 2019 with an A.S. in Criminal Justice Studies and after a short internship with the Public Defenders of Muskegon, I went back and completed my B.S. in Criminal Justice Studies in 2021. I also do Notary work after getting my certification in 2022.

After several years of corporate and big law firm settings I am now fortunate to be working closely with Jerry and his clients in a smaller setting. I look forward to meeting every client and working closely with them to navigate their case and get them the best results possible.
