Governor Bill Lee appointed Jennifer King of Carroll County to serve as the chancellor of the 24th Judicial District to fill the Honorable Carma McGee’s vacancy. McGee now serves on the Tennessee Court of Appeals.
Just after making the announcement on September 4, Lee said, “Jennifer is an engaged member of the community and highly qualified attorney. We are proud to appoint her to the 24th Judicial District and value the expertise she brings to the role.”
King is a Rule 31 Family Mediator with experience in family law and civil litigation.
She is also the co-founder and partner of King & King, PLC, with Benton County ties. On Thursday, she said, “I look forward to serving the people of Benton, Carroll, Decatur, Hardin and Henry counties as Chancellor of the 24th Judicial District. I have many fond memories from my childhood spent with family in Benton County on the Tennessee River. I learned to fish in Benton County.”
A graduate of the University of Memphis School of Law and Lipscomb University, King resides in Huntingdon, with her husband Jay.
