I am a Jackson native, as is my law partner and brother, Joe H. Byrd, Jr.  We combined our practices in 2000 and in 2011, we opened a second location.  He practices out of our downtown office at 116 North Church Street and I practice out of our north Jackson location at 518 Carriage House Drive. 

In our youth, our father was a commercial and residential contractor.  With my brother being eight years my senior, he entered law school while I was in junior high. With the influences of these two great men, it was only natural that I embark on a career in real estate law.  After working through law school as a Realtor, I did just that.

Excellent Legal Services
Charles Byrd handled our home closing and we couldn't have been more pleased with his professionalism and attention to detail. We have relocated several times due to our careers and this was by far the easiest and quickest experience we've had. His thoroughness allowed him to catch an error that could have been costly to us. He earned our trust and respect and we would not hesitate to seek him out for any legal services we would need.
