In Memoriam: Terry Iandiorio

We are deeply saddened by the death of Ropes & Gray attorney Terrell (Terry) Iandiorio, a dedicated and beloved pro bono panel volunteer and recipient of VLP's Denis Maguire award in 2016. Terry died on August 16th in the seas off Nantucket. He was 46.  

VLP came to know Terry through several pro bono projects at DotHouse Health where Terry ran a medical-legal partnership for Ropes & Gray. With the generosity of his firm and his seemingly endless energy and commitment, Terry impacted more lives than we will be able to recount, from clients and their family members to the associates and partners at Ropes who learned from him and to us who saw the benefit of his work.

We are grateful for Terry's life, work and spirit, and we miss him. You can read the Boston Globe obituary here
