Jordan W. Peeler is a family law practitioner in Spartanburg, South Carolina, handling both simple and complex family law cases, including divorce, property division, support, child custody, and visitation. Jordan was born and raised in Gaffney, South Carolina, and lived in Charleston, Boston, and Atlanta before returning to the Upstate to begin his practice of law. In 2002, Jordan received a B.A. in English from Clemson University. Following his graduation from Clemson, he considered following a path to priesthood in the Episcopal Church before deciding law was his chosen profession. He earned his J.D. in 2015 from the University of Georgia School of Law, which included a visiting year at the Charleston School of Law.
After being sworn in as a member of the South Carolina Bar, Jordan joined our firm in the summer of 2016. While studying for the Bar Exam, he had an opportunity to clerk in a family law firm in Charleston, South Carolina. That position, along with his experiences at our firm, have allowed him to see the struggles clients face when they first become involved in family law litigation. He has developed an understanding of the stress and pain broken relationships can cause, as well as the fears clients have about facing an uncertain future. Because of these experiences, Jordan firmly believes that whether we are able to resolve our clients' cases through settlement, mediation or litigation, our goals are to help send out clients into the next chapter of life with fewer burdens and more peace of mind. This is what makes being a lawyer worthwhile for him.
Jordan is an active member of the American Bar Association, the South Carolina Bar, and the Spartanburg County Bar Association. Within the South Carolina Bar, he is a Young Lawyers Division Diversity Committee Member and he looks forward to becoming more involved in several professional organizations as his career continues and develops.
Jordan lives in Laurens, South Carolina, with his partner, Nathan, and their corgi, Ellie. He loves to watch sports, and his favorite teams are Clemson football (go Tigers!) and UNC basketball. His bucket list includes one day meeting Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and the most unusual thing you'll find in his office is a Star Wars figurine from his childhood that has been on every desk he's ever had.
