Teresa McCollum enjoys learning and found a perfect fit in her career as an attorney.  “Whether due to changes in the law, or focusing on the nuances of each case, there is a continual opportunity for learning,” she said.  “I enjoy sharing my knowledge with my clients, advising them on how the law pertains to their unique situations.”

While in law school, Teresa was a member of the Order of The Crown honor society. She received the CALI Award, given to the student with the highest grade, in two courses; E-discovery and Problems and Professional Responsibility.  She also served as a teaching assistant in Problems and Professional Responsibility.

Prior to joining Hedrick Gardner, Teresa worked at a Plaintiff’s firm in Charlotte which provided her a unique insight into the defense of claims.

In her spare time, she enjoys being outside, especially if it involves a hike at Crowder’s Mountain.  She also enjoys dancing, cooking and playing with her cat.
