Meet John D. Peppers

John Peppers is an attorney with a diverse background of 30 years experience in business, academia, the Tennessee foster system, adoption, and estate planning. His entrepreneurial experience covers a range of industries including retail, restaurant, consulting, and property management.


After receiving his MBA, he accepted teaching positions at Bethel University, Nashville State Community College, and Athens State University focusing on Systems Theory, Strategic Planning, Human Resources, Entrepreneurship, Personal Finance, Organizational Behavior, Business Statistics, Civil Litigation for Paralegals, and Corporate Law.


Throughout his career he has created, managed, and served as a trustee for Corporations, General Partnerships, Limited Partnerships, Limited Liability Corporations, and Trusts.


John has also served on Boards of Directors for non-profit agencies in the Middle Tennessee area.



Originally from Nashville, John graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration followed by an MBA, and then PhD work in the same field at Trident University in Cypress, California.


While earning his degrees, John started a property management company serving commercial, industrial, and residential property owners for over 25 years. At the height of the company’s service, his team managed 300+ leases across six counties in Middle Tennessee.



John and his wife, Kandace, served as foster parents for the Department of Children’s Services beginning in 2015 and culminated in the adoption of a sibling group of five children, ages 5 and under, who had previously been in permanent guardianship of the State of Tennessee.


While serving as foster parents, John and Kandace noticed a need for Guardian Ad Litems (GALs) to serve in the juvenile court. The GALs are appointed by the Judges to advocate for children in state custody.


John practices in Downtown Franklin, serving as a GAL in the Williamson County Juvenile Court, helping clients with estate planning, working with small to medium-sized business owners, and working with adoptive parents on their adoption plans.
