About me

As the managing partner at Tetterton Law Firm, I practice Criminal and Traffic Law exclusively in Carteret County. This allows me to handle clients’ cases in a timely and effective manner, while working daily with the same prosecutors and law enforcement officers. During law school I interned for the Harnett County District Attorney’s Office, as well as with a private firm in Raleigh. After law school my family and I moved back to our hometown of Morehead City to be closer to our family and for me to start my own practice. My beautiful wife and I have two boys and a yellow lab named Sailor. In my spare time I enjoy Jeep rides, boating, fishing and watching my sons play tee ball and guitar. I have served on several boards including the Carteret County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council. The Beaufort Historical Society and Boy Scouts of America East Carolina Council are organizations in which I take pleasure in volunteering.
