Terence Durkin

Immediate Past President

Terence Durkin is a Principal at Kitch, Drutchas, Wagner, Valitutti, & Sherbrook, P.C. Terence’s practice blends labor and employment law with medical malpractice and general litigation. His experience as a litigator gives him a unique ability to help clients sort through the challenging and ever-changing world of labor and employment rules and regulations. Clients come to Terence and the firm’s labor and employment team for guidance because they understand the priorities and risks involved with managing a diverse workforce, creating contracts, and implementing the best policies and procedures.

Terence and the Kitch labor and employment team offer a full array of employment and labor law services, including disputes in all types of forums: the courts, mediation panels, arbitration and administrative agencies. Clients rely on Terence to help them navigate collective bargaining, contract administration, and grievance and arbitration proceedings, and he often participates with them in those proceedings.

Terence plays an active role in the community by serving on the Executive Board of the Michigan Defense Trial Counsel, chair of the Ascension Providence Foundation, Plymouth Rotary, and the Board of Directors and Core Leadership Team of Oak Mac SHRM (Society of Human Resource and Management).

Terence received his Bachelor of Arts in political science from Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois and his Juris Doctorate from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School where he was Article Editor of the Journal of Practical and Clinical Law. He is licensed to practice law in Michigan as well as the United States District Courts Eastern and Western Michigan.

He is married to Jessica and lives in Northville.
