Starting with your first appointment, all the way through case negotiations – and even trial if necessary – our office staff will be there to walk you through every step of the process. Greg Linehan has decades of experience practicing injury law. He decided to build his own firm in order to prioritize providing personalized service and attention to each and every client. At Greg Linehan Law, you will meet and work with the same attorney and legal assistant from your very first appointment. This means that all phone calls, emails, letters, or in-person meetings to keep you up to speed on the status of your case will be with a familiar face or voice. We strive to provide not only top-notch legal representation but also a sense of comfort and familiarity. You won’t show up to a deposition to find an attorney you’ve never seen or spoken to before.

After college, Rebecca spent several years working for a local bookkeeping company doing accounting, payroll, and billing work for various small companies in the Sarasota area. Fortunately, one of the companies that she did bookkeeping for was our law firm. When it came time to hire an office manager for Greg Linehan Law, she was the ideal candidate.

Rebecca and her husband, Jason, have been married for over 26 years. Together they have a daughter, Alexis, who lives and works in Jacksonville, FL, and a rescue pup named Cece. If they aren’t out traveling the world, you can typically find them at a concert or a local brewery enjoying being empty nesters.
Terry Curry was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. She graduated from Booker High School. In 1986, Terry began her journey into the insurance claims field with a job as an adjuster at FCCI. There, she worked for 15 years, primarily as an adjuster for workers’ compensation claims. This eventually lead her to seek out a position as an assistant to a workers’ comp attorney. She found a position with a young attorney, Greg Linehan, at a local firm that primarily does work comp and personal injury litigation.
In 2003, when Mr. Linehan left that firm; Terry followed him and continued her career as Mr. Linehan’s legal assistant. She handles all of the firm’s workers’ compensation claims as well as the social security disability claims. In addition, she handles personal injury files from pre-suit to litigation for our clients. Daily, she handles personal injury and worker’s compensation claims from beginning to end including all client matters, handling client calls, and keeping track of Mr. Linehan’s calendar and appointments.

Her days are typically spent handling client calls, requesting medical records, building client files, communicating with insurance companies, and writing demand letters.
