Jeremy M. Paul

An Indiana native, Jeremy graduated from Wabash College in central Indiana and received his Bachelor of Arts in English Literature with honors.  In 2009, Jeremy left the Midwest to pursue a career in law and attended Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida.  In 2011, he earned his Juris Doctorate with honors.  While in law school, Jeremy was a lead advocate on Florida Coastal’s nationally-ranked moot court team and served as a staff editor for the Florida Coastal Law Review.  Jeremy participated in four national moot court competitions while in law school and argued successfully before Judges from the Eleventh and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeals as well as Judges from multiple Federal District Courts, State Supreme Courts, and Florida’s First District Court of Appeal.  Jeremy also had the distinct privilege of completing a judicial externship with The Honorable James R. Klindt at the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

Jeremy started working for The Firm as a law clerk while enrolled at Florida Coastal School of Law and became an attorney in 2011.  Jeremy’s work encompasses all of the Firm’s Fortes with a special emphasis in Commercial and Business Litigation as well as Real Property Litigation. In January 2018, Jeremy was named a partner in the firm.

In addition to his legal work, Jeremy volunteers as a teacher for Learn to Read, a local adult-education program located in downtown Jacksonville.  Since 2009, Jeremy has offered a weekly literacy class for adult students from the Jacksonville community.  Jeremy is also an active member of the Jacksonville Bar Association and the Jacksonville Bar’s Young Lawyers Section.

Outside of work, if the weather is right, you will find Jeremy on his kayak with a fishing rod in hand or in the trees on one of Jacksonville’s local golf courses.
