Mr. Terrence John is an Of Counsel Attorney with The Kirby G. Smith Law Firm. Terrence was drawn to employment law because of the necessary work of protecting employee rights against the auspices of public and private employers. The impetus of his fascination was born out of his own beginnings as the child of a blue collar family, witnessing first-hand the power imbalance between employees and employers. He has practiced in front of state courts and federal courts.


Terrence is originally from New York, the second son of Caribbean parents, and moved to Atlanta during his middle school years. He completed his undergraduate

studies at Georgia State University. In his spare time, Terrence enjoys collecting vinyl records, reading, and doing service work in his community.
