Jeff is a litigation attorney licensed and working in Washington and Oregon. His goal is to make the legal process as understandable, clear, and comfortable for the client as possible. As an experienced litigator, he is confident and at ease in court.
His approach is to reach an acceptable and reasonable resolution through negotiation or mediation, and if that is not possible, then to use court action, including trial; although, certain cases require the reverse.
Jeff is a proactive attorney regularly handling complex family law cases including those involving domestic violence, divisions of LLCs and businesses, and involving Child Protective Services. Along with other family law matters he regularly handles Dependency and Minor Guardianship issues. He is an active criminal defense attorney defending those charged with misdemeanors and felonies.
Jeff is known throughout the legal community as the attorney who takes on the messy, complex cases and achieves good results. His general advice is “Once a case or charge is known or anticipated, do not talk to anyone about it, unless it is your attorney.”
In his free time, he is a devoted parent and enjoys spending time with his family, as well as hiking, fishing, or just playing in the woods. Jeff is a lifelong Oregonian and loves all that this region has to offer.
