Terrence D. O’Hare

Terry O’Hare’s practice has spanned over 40 years and focuses on  clients involved in aviation, airport operation and insurance underwriters. He serves as the outside General Counsel to a large national insurance company. He also serves as the outside General Counsel to the Omaha Airport Authority.

His practice has taken him to Federal and State courtrooms in more than half of the states of the United States and internationally also. Today he uses his litigation background for the benefit of his clients in an effort to help them avoid litigation or regulatory action.  The best result is when the flow of business remains uninterrupted. That is where the true value for the client is created.

He was selected for induction into the American College of Trial Lawyers in 1993.

Terry has been a shareholder in McGrath North since 1988 when his prior firm merged with McGrath North and he served on the firm’s board of directors.
