Jordan was promoted quickly, and eventually managed one of the largest bankruptcy caseloads in metro-Atlanta, covering millions of dollars of debt and finances.

Thereafter, Jordan left corporate America to pursue his dream of becoming a trial lawyer, and joined the Spalding County District Attorney's Office in Griffin Georgia. There he gained a reputation for excellence in trial practice, and maintained good relationships with all who knew him. Jordan then left Spalding County to join the Henry County District Attorney's Office in his home town of McDonough, GA, where he continued prosecuting major felonies, appeals and trials.
