Following his clerkship, Byron worked as a brief writer for appeals to the Alabama Supreme Court and Alabama Court of Appeals. Then, after passing the Alabama Bar, he practiced law throughout the State of Alabama handling many different types of matters, including appeals. Byron later returned to Mississippi where he has handled workers' compensation, divorce, child custody, accidents, estates, and criminal matters in all courts throughout the State of Mississippi (city courts, justice courts, county courts, youth courts, chancery courts, circuit courts and federal courts). Byron has been married to Tracy Mitchell Carter for 16 years. Tracy was born in Jackson and graduated from Forest Hill High School. She is a paralegal, who works with Byron now after having worked for the Mississippi Workers' Compensation Commission and a couple of Jackson law firms. The Carters have a son, Will, who graduated from Mississippi State and works for a cloud-based computer services and internet telephone company in Jackson, and a daughter, Dallas, who graduated from Mississippi State and teaches 7th grade Science at Clinton Jr. High. They also have 3 dogs - Ace, Guicy and Hammie - and 1 cat - Elvis. The Carters have a cattle farm where they raise American Aberdeen (formerly Lowline) cattle. Each new baby calf has a name and was kissed by Tracy right after he/she was born. Their bull, who is in the picture with Byron, came from Minnesota and his sire came from Australia. They have a special heifer - Bunny - born 2 years ago on Easter, who is only around 26 inches tall. Byron and Tracy have done everything required of raising cattle with some a little too disgusting for most people to read about. They also have a quarter horse, 2 miniature horses and a donkey. Byron has 4 sisters, all living in Mississippi - 2 graduated from Mississippi State and 2 from the University of Mississippi. His mother is an MUW graduate. He has one brother-in-law, who played football at the University of Southern Mississippi, and a nephew, who played football at the University of Mississippi. His niece was the homecoming queen at the University of Mississippi, as well. His sisters all have children scattered around Mississippi with 1 in Birmingham and 1 in Atlanta. Byron’s hobbies include watching college sports, cattle, flying and genealogy. Byron is a 5th generation Mississippian.
