9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
I have been practicing law in Orlando since 1988. I started with the largest firm in Orlando, and now I enjoy working as a small firm so that I can work directly with all of my clients. After working with large firms for many years, I started my own practice to help individuals and families with their legal needs. I specialize in personal injury, professional malpractice, and bankruptcy law. While working for large firms, I worked with insurance companies and large corporations. Now, I find it so much more satisfying helping people who really need a good lawyer to overcome a challenging legal obstacle, such as resolving a financial debt crisis, or recovering from the financial distress caused by an injury from an accident, or after being neglected or taken advantage of by a legal professional.
Why am I a lawyer? Because I like to help people. I get the most satisfaction knowing that I have helped someone get out of a real legal jam, whether it is dealing with a life changing accident, or helping a family get a fresh start with their finances.
I have been practicing as a lawyer for 23 years. During that time, I have worked hard to get the training and credentials that make me an excellent attorney and advocate for my clients. I am board certified as a Civil Trial Lawyer, the highest recognition by the Florida Bar as a specialist in the area of trial law. I am a member of the National Association of Bankruptcy Lawyers. I have been given a rating of AV by the Martindale-Hubble peer review system, which reflects the opinion of lawyers and judges in my legal community.
I started my legal career working for large corporations and insurance companies. Now I help "the little guy" when they need the skills and experience of a talented lawyer.

Our law firm is not a high volume "mill" where you will never meet or talk to your own bankruptcy attorney. Jeff will meet with you on day one, and stay with you until your case is completed.
"I try to see & hear things from my client's point of view. Once I earn their trust, my clients come to know that they can count on me to put their best case forward, as long as it is truthful. When I believe in a client's case, I will go the extra mile and then some to achieve what I believe they are entitled to under the law."
