Ruta Panomitros makes use of her extensive legal background and qualifications to expand the service reach of The Terry Law Firm, PLLC. Following a fascinating path from nurse to real estate attorney, Ruta was recently admitted to the South Carolina Bar, and now represents buyers and sellers in South Carolina real estate closings.

Panomitros started her path to law while working as a nurse in Chicago. She attended classes at DePaul University College of Law between shifts in the Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. After passing the Illinois bar, she used her nursing background to then work for a personal injury firm, and assisted in labor relations law.

After getting married, Ruta moved to Texas where admitted to the Texas Bar and had a small solo practice specializing in family law, commercial leasing, real estate, business representation and insurance work, all while raising two children.

The Panomitros family settled in Charlotte in 2009. Upon arrival, Ruta was offered an independent contractor job at a real estate firm and has been working in that field since. She followed Dan Terry to his current office and assisted him with getting it up and running and has been an integral part of this office since its inception.

Ruta and her husband Gregory have two daughters: Sofia, a freshman in college, studying physics; and Anastasia, a sophomore in high school. They have two German Shepherds and reside in South Charlotte. She loves reading and traveling with her husband and family, and is very proud of her Lithuanian Heritage.

A friend once told me that “everyone is busy, but it is what you prioritize that defines you.” I am grateful to have had the opportunity to create a firm where we can take the time and utilize all of our resources to prioritize our clients. I enjoy working personally with everyone on our staff and all of our buyers and sellers. I like taking the time to make sure my clients are happy and the transactions are the best they can possibly be.
