Meet Carter M. Jones

Carter M. Jones's journey to becoming an attorney is grounded in his deep connection to Eastern North Carolina's agricultural roots and his commitment to serving the local community. Born and raised in Mt. Olive, North Carolina, Carter's early involvement in his family's farming operations and small businesses instilled in him a strong work ethic and an understanding of the importance of legal expertise in business success.

His academic achievements are notable. Carter graduated summa cum laude from North Carolina State University in 2020, earning a degree in Agricultural Business Management. This provided him with a solid foundation in the business aspects that are so crucial to his legal practice today. He then went on to earn his Juris Doctor with honors from the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University, where he contributed to the intellectual community as a member of the Campbell Law Review.

Carter's legal career commenced promptly after graduating, with him passing the North Carolina State Bar Exam in July 2023. In September 2023, he joined Narron Wenzel, P.A., immediately bringing his fresh perspective and academic excellence to the firm. Focusing his practice in Estate Planning and Corporate Transactional work, Carter is not only well-versed in the legal framework but also has a genuine understanding of the agriculture and business sectors, making him a particularly insightful advocate for entrepreneurs and farmers in the region.
Professional affiliations with the North Carolina Bar Association, the 13th Judicial District Bar, and the Johnston County Bar Association underscore his commitment to the legal profession and his dedication to staying connected with his peers and the broader legal community.

Carter's dedication to service and leadership was exemplified early on when he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout with Troop 200 in Mt. Olive in 2013, an honor reflecting his leadership qualities and commitment to community service. This background in the Boy Scouts of America has imbued him with a strong sense of duty and integrity, traits that he now brings to his practice of law.

Outside of the office, Carter enjoys spending time with his wife. Carter maintains a strong connection to his roots, finding solace and perspective in working on his family’s farm, and enjoying the traditions of hunting and fishing. These activities not only offer him a respite from the demands of legal practice but also keep him connected to the land and the community he serves.
