Douglas T. Jenkins of Rogersville was appointed today by Gov. Bill Haslam as chancellor in the Third Judicial District, replacing Thomas R. "Skip" Frierson, who was named to the Tennessee Court of Appeals in February.

The Third Judicial District serves Greene, Hamblen, Hancock and Hawkins counties.

Jenkins, 45, has practiced in the Law Office of Douglas T. Jenkins in Rogersville since 1997. He worked in the Law Offices of Terry, Terry & Stapleton in Morristown from 1995 to 1997.

"Doug has a depth of experience in law, and I am pleased to make this appointment. I appreciate his willingness to serve, and I know he will do an excellent job on the bench," Haslam said today in a news release.

Jenkins' areas of practice have included domestic relations, criminal defense, property boundary disputes and probate/wills/estate/estate litigation.

He has been owner and manager of a private family farm in Hawkins County since 1986.

"I sincerely appreciate the confidence the governor has placed in me by appointing me chancellor for the Third Judicial District," he was quoted in the news release from Gov. Haslam's office.

"I will do my best to decide the cases that come before me impartially and expeditiously. I take this opportunity very seriously and pledge to do my best for the people."

Jenkins, who is the son of former First Congressional District U.S. Rep. William L. "Bill" Jenkins, received his juris doctorate from the Nashville School of Law in 1995. He earned a bachelor's degree at Tennessee Tech University in 1990.

He is currently vice president of the Rogersville Heritage Association, a member of the Hawkins County Farmers Cooperative board of directors, and a master mason at Overton Lodge No. 5.

He is a member of the Choptack Missionary Baptist Church.

Jenkins and his wife, Pamela, have three sons and a daughter, ages 10 to 15.
