Terry S. Lu, associate

Biography


Terry focuses his practice on various types of litigation, business law, and civil rights. Prior to joining Mauck & Baker in 2018, Terry's professional practice was primarily focused on litigation, but he has since expanded into other practice areas to better serve the best interests of his clients. When deciding to join Mauck & Baker, Terry mentioned what was most important to him. “At Mauck & Baker, I am excited about working with churches and non-profits, energized by the way prayer is valued and exercised within the firm, and impressed by the faithfulness demonstrated via the hosting of weekly Bible studies.” Terry received his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2006. Following graduation, Terry moved to West Lafayette, IN, where he helped to establish a new Christian church. He also volunteered at a local homeless shelter, worked on projects with Habitat for Humanity, and provided tutoring services to adult learners interested in earning GEDs. Upon returning to Chicago, Terry lived within two intentional Christian communities: one in Evanston and another in Rogers Park. Terry returned to Champaign, IL, for law school where he graduated with honors from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2013. Terry was a production editor on the Journal of Law, Technology & Policy and a member of the Illinois Innocence Project. He earned a pro bono notation in recognition for legal work performed as a law student. Terry is passionate about church planting and help to establish his home church in Uptown. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time outdoors and playing European-style board games with his wife, Elizabeth.
