Paul's practice area is focused entirely in the area of family law, including divorce and separation, spousal support, property distribution and child custody and support.
He is an exceptional and dedicated attorney, who brings the same level of intensity to the court room as he did on the pitcher's mound as a student-athlete at UNC-Chapel Hill. After graduating with Dean's List honors from UNC-Chapel Hill, he attended law school at North Carolina Central University, where he graduated magna cum laude. While at NCCU he actively served the community as a member of the Family Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution clinics, and participated in North Carolina Central University's Street Law program, teaching at Durham's Hillside High School. Paul also participated in NCCU's mentor-mentee program. He has volunteered as a mediator with the Dispute Resolution Center in Carrboro, North Carolina and also serves as a volunteer judge and coach for the North Carolina Advocates for Justice high school mock trial competition.
Paul was born and raised in Rocky Mount, North Carolina before calling Chapel Hill home for nearly a decade. In May 2011 he returned to his roots of Eastern North Carolina to work for Graham, Nuckolls & Brown, PLLC after working previously at the Maitland Law Firm in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, friends and dogs, attending UNC sporting events, and traveling to major league baseball games to see his beloved Red Sox.

Paul is an exceptional lawyer who is responsive, sharp, direct and compassionate. We worked together on a procedurally complex inter-county matter and I, as a young lawyer, learned a great deal from him. I highly recommend him.
