Meet Terre Villani
Terre has been with Russo & Gould for 15 years, although she and Alan Russo met years before. They stayed in touch when Alan started the firm in 1996 and ten years later, Terre came on board.
Terre is an accomplished trial lawyer having tried cases for the greater part of her career. In addition, she is a mediator in the New York State Supreme Court Commercial Division, a Special Master at Supreme Court of New York, Appellate Division 2nd Department and a mediator for the Supreme Court, Bronx County.
In her practice, Terre handles all aspects of personal injury, commercial and property damage litigation, starting with initial case evaluation through to appeals if needed. Her insurance carrier clients rely on her help in a variety of areas, including labor law, construction site accidents, construction defect, premises liability, products liability, dram shop, insurance coverage, negligent hiring and security, commercial property damage and automobile liability.
One of the things Terre appreciates about the work done at Russo & Gould is that the attorneys are always looking out for clients’ needs now and into the future. Clients can take an active role in creating the strategy for their matter or they can leave it all to the firm. And Russo & Gould has always been forward-thinking and looking to evolve, as evidenced by the high-level meditation practice they have today and that Terre continues to build.
