Jeff takes on the firm’s litigation matters for its regular clients and clients of other law firms who often refer Jeff their litigation matters. In his role as a litigator, Jeff handles litigation matters in the real estate and business settings. Matters range from zoning and land use disputes to complex litigation in business, trade secret, and partnership breakup matters. He practices in both state and federal courts. He also focuses on related appellate work. Jeff’s accomplishments include a jury award of $5.5 Million along with recovery of his client’s attorney fees in excess of $2 Million after a 6-week jury trial.

Jeff balances the stresses of litigation with a diverse background in business and real estate transactional law. In this part of his practice he focuses on business start-ups, mergers, acquisitions, risk management, and strategic planning. His litigation experience informs his transactional work helping clients prepare contracts and business transactions that are as litigation proof as possible and his transactional work informs his business litigation practice allowing insights to client cases that most trial lawyers do not have.
