North Carolina Born. Service Bred. 

Terry Brown is a litigation attorney in Charlotte, NC where he lives in the Historic Camp Greene neighborhood with his wife Arielle and their pet turtle, Terra, and lab puppy, Pharaoh.

Growing up as the son of two public school educators, the values of service, education, and community were instilled in Terry from the very beginning. Terry watched his parents sacrifice to provide their students the opportunity to succeed. Terry has experienced all that the Tar Heel State has to offer – from being born and raised in Fayetteville, to working as a field organizer in the dusty back roads of Halifax County, and then to honing his skills as an advocate in Raleigh before settling in Charlotte to start a family and his career as an attorney and public servant. 



As a legislator, Terry aims to combine his passions for justice, education and building a robust economy to help strengthen our state and improve the lives of the residents of NC House District 92. As your next house representative, Terry will focus on improving public schools, expanding access to broadband services, making mental health accessible, and strengthening the middle class while fighting for  Medicaid expansion and an increased minimum wage.
