Terry A. McCall
Terry, an “Old Salt” now berthed in Montana, was born in Wisconsin, but spent most of his life in New Orleans. Occasionally you can hear a “yawl” in his voice and see a look in his eyes that seems to say “I would really like some crawfish etouffee.”
Terry has a son, who went through Hurricane Katrina, and granddaughter. Aside from working on being a lovable curmudgeon (sometimes merely a curmudgeon), he is an avid reader and, a player with all things computer (since 1980). Generally, he doesn’t bother the rest of the office with the classical music he plays.
Admitted to the Louisiana bar in 1979, he practiced admiralty and maritime law in New Orleans until 2000. He practiced before the courts of Louisiana, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and U.S. District Courts for Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of Louisiana. Also, he specially appeared before the United States Court of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit; United States District Courts in Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky, Washington, Alaska and Guam; Interstate Commerce Commission; the Federal Maritime Commission; and the Treasury Department.
