    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Terry A. Dawes is an associate at the highly regarded Detroit law firm of McKeen & Associates, PC. At the firm, Mr. Dawes dedicates 100 percent of his practice to litigating on behalf of clients who have suffered as the result of negligent medical professionals or the losses of loved ones. By focusing his efforts entirely on wrongful death cases and medical malpractice, Mr. Dawes is one of the leading attorneys in southeastern Michigan in both practice areas.

    Mr. Dawes began his professional career as a nurse after earning an associate degree in nursing from Kalamazoo Valley Community College in 1986. While working as a nurse, he continued his education, and he earned a Bachelor of Science from Western Michigan University in 1988 and a law degree from Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 1993. Later that year, the State Bar of Michigan granted him admission, and he has used his medical knowledge to benefit his injured and grieving clients since that time.

    Over the course of attorney Dawes' 20-plus-year career, he has earned the respect and admiration of his peers thanks to his dedication to protecting his clients' rights and his tireless devotion to justice. In fact, as the U.S. Court of Federal Claims approved him to practice in its courtrooms, he built much of his reputation by representing clients in cases related to vaccinations administered through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

    Mr. Dawes is a highly valued member of the legal community thanks to his membership in a number of organizations. He is a member of the Federal Bar Association and the Michigan Association for Justice, to name only a couple.
