Jeff grew up in Michigan and earned his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University. After graduation, Jeff moved to Colorado to pursue his love of rock climbing and his passion for the outdoors. He then moved to Oregon to attend Willamette University College of Law. It was at Willamette University that Jeff began to hone his skills in criminal law. Throughout law school, Jeff worked for the Polk County District Attorney's Office. It was the holistic approach of that office that would lay the foundation for Jeff becoming the criminal defense lawyer he is today.
After graduating law school, Jeff chose to become a criminal defense attorney. This decision was based on a desire to protect the Constitution, fight for the little guy and help people in need take their lives back. You can often find Jeff at the office toiling away with his companion Reggae, an amazing Black Lab that loves a good game of ball at lunch. When Jeff is not in the office fighting for your rights, he can be found rock climbing, snowboarding, running, hiking, doing yoga or just enjoying all the beauty and fun Oregon has to offer.
