Paul Jeter was born in Nashville, Tennessee and raised in Franklin, Tennessee. He attended Franklin High School and graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a BS in Ornamental Horticulture and Landscape Design and a minor in Business Administration.
After graduating from Tennessee, Paul began working in the landscape field and started his own landscape company. Paul’s experience in this field developed a strong work ethic and appreciation for those who “get their hands dirty” for a living.
After about five years in the landscape industry, Paul felt called to the legal profession and earned his Law Degree from the Nashville School of Law where he attended school at night while continuing to work 40-hour weeks as a paralegal in a law firm. He earned hands-on training while working for a personal injury law firm during the day and completed his legal studies at night. It was a tough grind but was instrumental in preparing Paul for the rigors and challenges that come with being a Lawyer.
Upon graduation and passing the Bar Exam on his first try, Paul believed that he could best serve his clients with a personal approach to practicing law so he opened his own practice, Paul D. Jeter Law Firm, P.C. in the Fall of 2009. Since that time, Paul has successfully represented clients from all over Tennessee in family law, personal injury, probate and business law cases. Paul also enjoys preparing wills and handling adoptions for his clients. His most memorable day practicing law was completing re-adoptions for his niece and nephew who were adopted from Rwanda by his sister and brother-in-law.
Paul currently resides in Franklin, Tennessee with his wife Autumn and sons Cooper and Graham. Paul is a member of the Tennessee Bar Association, Williamson County Bar Association and the Tennessee Association for Justice. He is an active member of Christ Community Church in Franklin and vounteers as a basketball and baseball coach for Grassland Athletic Association. He enjoys playing golf, basketball, fishing and spending time with his family. Paul is also an avid supporter of the University of Tennessee Volunteers and can likely be found in Neyland Stadium on Saturdays in the Fall.
