The founder of the Dallas-based law firm Odum Law Office, Terrica A. Odum is a family law attorney serving people throughout Dallas, Texas. With her extensive experience in family law, she takes on various kinds of cases and matters, including:

Ms. Odum graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in family and child sciences with honors. While there, she devoted her time to working as a witness advocate in the State Attorney's Office in Tallahassee. Later in 2005, she earned her Doctor of Jurisprudence from the Howard University School of Law, Washington, D.C. Soon after, she joined one of the most renowned legal firms in Texas as a family law attorney. 

A diligent and dedicated professional, Ms. Odum has more than 16 years of legal experience in helping her clients in their trying times. She understands how emotionally draining and devastating it can be at times when people are going through a divorce or trying to get child custody.
