Paul Ferman was born in Stockholm, Sweden. When he was 9, his family settled in Bremerton, where they have lived since. Paul attended Gonzaga University, where he earned a degree in English Literature. After college, he worked at and eventually managed the Boat Shed Restaurant, a local landmark, while earning a Master's degree in Secondary Education from Old Dominion University. After teaching for a year, Paul moved with his wife to Virginia to attend Law School at George Mason University. Paul graduated with honors, with a concentration in litigation. After practicing for 2 ½ years in Virginia on a variety of cases, Paul moved back home to Bremerton with his wife and children to be closer to family.
