  • “ excellent integrity, hard worker, great legal mind.”
  • “ Jeff has handled a piece of litigation for a family member. The case presented many difficulties as the family member was elderly and the defendant was the nursing home. Jeff was able to deftly manuever the proceedings forward, when the home was attempting to delay in the hopes that the family member would pass away. Jeff, demonstrated sound strategic thinking, provided good practical advice to the family and obtained the best possible outcome given the circumstances.”

These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.
