As a member of the firm’s Litigation Department and Employment Law Group, Jeff has handled a wide range of business and employment disputes. Using his extensive experience to counsel clients dealing with actual or threatened litigation, Jeff acquires a thorough understanding of his clients’ goals then works closely with his clients to develop effective strategies to accomplish the desired result.

Jeff has represented clients in matters involving a wide range of business disputes, wrongful termination, employment discrimination, retaliation and harassment, wage and hour claims, workers compensation, breach of contract, unfair competition, misappropriation of trade secrets, insurance claims and coverage, real property, personal injury, elder abuse, administrative and regulatory agency matters and partnership disputes.
