The Q&B Experience: Lawyer Spotlight

Lawyer Spotlight: Bradley Terry

How many states or countries have you lived in?
Three states (Utah, California, and Arizona) and two countries (U.S. and El Salvador)

What is your favorite drink?
Coke

What is your favorite month?
That's probably a tie between March, because of March Madness, and September, because football is finally getting started again.

What inspires you?
The pursuit of greatness. I try each day to become better in some way, and am inspired by those around me who are able to achieve so much by working hard one day at a time.

If you chose a quote to live by, what would it be?
Carpe diem.

What is your greatest accomplishment?
Being the first in my family to graduate from college and get a graduate degree. But my parents deserve credit for making it possible and encouraging me along the way.

What has been your most embarrassing experience at Q&B?
I don't recall anything too bad, but that might be a question better directed at those who work with me.

What experience at Q&B has been the most fun?
It has to be QBU Junior. I enjoyed getting to know the other new associates at Q&B and look forward to seeing them at future events.

What advice would you give to a law student?
Get as much practical experience as possible and do everything you can to develop your legal writing skills.

What is your greatest professional success?
Getting hired at Q&B. I consider myself lucky to be here and am excited to be working in such a great practice group.

What class should you have taken in law school?
Tax. It sounded so boring at the time, but I think I would have enjoyed it since it is code-based like bankruptcy.

Who has given you the best advice about practicing law and what was that advice?
I can't remember who told me this, but the advice was that the phrase "practicing law" can be taken literally. You never stop learning and nobody ever knows all there is to know.

What makes you laugh?
Roxy, our seven-pound Maltese Poodle.

What is the best thing about Q&B?
The people and the team atmosphere.

What do you do for fun?
I enjoy spending time and traveling with my wife, watching sports, playing golf and basketball, running, going to movies, and trying new restaurants.

What is great about working in Tucson?
I like Tucson because it has a small-town feel but is big enough that there is plenty to do. Throughout the year, there are annual festivals/conventions/events that have already become a tradition in our family. I also enjoy being able to use the weather to get people to come visit us in the winter.
