Jeff Gets the Job Done
"While our in-house legal department reorganization felt chaotic in nature, Jeff kept all the moving parts organized and those affected informed of process and progress. He worked with individual sub-groups to assess needs and staff strengths. He not only sat in on meetings, he participated and organized them so they became productive and not a waste of time. Projects were identified, organized and assigned based on staff strengths and prior knowledge identified by Jeff. Strategies were developed to identify priority and cross-over and implemented to move forward in a methodical way. The priorities and cross-overs were accomplished with a domino effect, in which completion of one project enables the next one to begin. I cannot imagine how my newly developed legal department sub-group could have accomplished so much in such a short time without Jeff's guidance and expertise. With him we were able to identify redundancies, create automation and "lift and shift" work to take on new challenges and opportunities to show senior department management we are an invaluable asset to them."
Jeff Is One of The Best Directors I Have Had the Privilege to Work for
"Jeff's ability to view, evaluate and manage matters in a manner that advances the company's underlying and overarching business interests is superb. This, combined with his excellent skills (and his warm personality and great character), means Jeff is one of the best I have had the privilege to work for in nearly twenty years of private practice."
He Is Knowledgeable in His Area of Subject Matter Expertise.
"Jeff and I have worked together for many years. He is a team player, an extremely loyal person. He is knowledgeable in his area of subject matter expertise. He is very strategic. He is passionate about getting the right result for the company. His interpersonal skills are very good; he gets along well with everyone and listens to differing points of view. In our corporation, he was known for his ability to balance the needs of the business with the legal risks involved."
Jeff Is Strategic

His interpersonal skills are very good; he gets along well with everyone and listens to divergent points of view. He has a very good ability to balance the needs of the business with the legal risks involved. I would hire him again, without qualification, if I had the opportunity to do so."
He Is Extremely Knowledgeable

Jeff Possesses an All Too Rare Trifecta of Characteristics
Jeff possesses an all too rare trifecta of characteristics that make an outstanding lawyer; exceptional legal ability, solid management skills, and practical experience. Jeff can fully grasp the nuances of complex legal issues while avoiding becoming lost in them. His thinking, which is reflected in his written advocacy, is always focused. He is a tough, seasoned litigator but through his in-house experience evaluates litigation through the broader lens of his client's overarching business needs. He is able to navigate the many legal and non-legal issues that arise in complex, corporate litigation and balance, and explain and execute them in a way that advances his client's business objectives. Underlying his professional strengths, he is a man of impeccable character who always does right by the people who depend on him."
He Is a Steady Hand, Has Good Judgment
"I've known Jeff for 20 years+. My experience has ranged from partner (me) to associate (Jeff) to partners, to Jeff becoming the client, which was true for over 10 years. We have tried cases together, worked up cases together and been a team on many different litigations. I say this so you know I have a lot of experience from which to draw when I recommend him. He is a steady hand, has good judgment and worked in a variety of situations, large and small matters, and is very capable. His past experiences working in both law firms and corporations gives him the advantage of first-hand knowledge of both settings."
Jeff's Biggest Success Has Centered Around the Ability to See Both Sides of A Situation
"I have worked with Jeff for 22 years. Jeff's biggest success has centered around the ability to see both sides of a situation, give guidance on the issues, and find the solution. He has patience, creativity and is a great mentor. If there is a problem, you can depend on Jeff to find the best result for all parties involved."
