Jeremy has a wide range of clients, he represents our everyday neighbors to major international corporations.
Jeremy is passionate about alternative courts, so much so Jeremy ran for Floyd County District Attorney in 2016 in hopes of establishing a drug court which our community desperately needed. While Jeremy’s bid for D.A. was not successful, the current D.A. has established a drug court and thus Jeremy’s efforts were not in vain. He is currently a board member of NAMI Rome.
Jeremy is married to Jill Sealy Salter and they have two children: Sealy (8) and Marlo (6). Jill & Jeremy have been practicing law together since 2013. Their practice varies, but they specialize in bankruptcy, litigation. They also handle most civil, criminal and domestic law. Jill and Jeremy have been Romans since 2013 and are proud of their city.
