About Paul

Proudly Serving as Your Probate Court Clerk Since 2010

Paul C Boyd

My name is Paul Boyd, and I am a lifelong Memphian. I grew up in Whitehaven and attended Bishop Byrne HS, then attended the University of Tennessee. Both my parents were born and raised in rural segregated Mississippi in the 40s and 50s. My mother was a public school math teacher for several decades and my father was on the grounds crew for Northwest Airlines. They instilled in me a strong work ethic and the value of friends and neighbors coming together to make our community a better place.

In response to those teachings, I have been involved with public service for over a decade. In addition to serving on the boards of the local Republican Party and Young Republicans, I am a member of the Executive Committee of the Tennessee Republican Party and served two terms as Regional Director in the National Conference of Republican County Officials. I am also a member of the Memphis Urban League Young Professionals and Downtown Memphis Kiwanis.

Since 2010, I have proudly served as your Probate Court Clerk. Since being elected, I have assembled a professional staff of deputies and clerks who regularly assist the taxpayers who interact with the Probate Court on a daily basis. We have worked hard to stay sensitive to the needs and emotions of the citizens we serve, especially during the trying times.

Over the past eight years, we have modernized computer systems and accounting practices, protected historic records, increased revenue year over year, but most importantly, developed staff who stop to listen to citizens and never answer with "we don't do that." While many people walk into the office sad, frustrated, or confused, they leave more relaxed and confident that they will not be overwhelmed by the process.

There is still more to do to keep our office running smoothly. Keeping up with the changes in state law affecting Probate Court operations requires a professional with experience. That's why I'm asking for your vote to continue to serve you as Probate Court Clerk.
