Terrance Pryor has an atypical legal career because he was an atypical law student. Terrance attended law school for five years as a part-time student, transferred from one school to Georgia State Law, and started working in two new legal fields before they were cool. Terrance is a former Division I football player and leaves a great impression on everyone he meets, which is seen in how he builds rapport with people and takes advantage of incredible opportunities when they appear. Now, Terrance Pryor is the in-house counsel for data and privacy operations at General Motors.
