He has handled ordinance and misdemeanor cases as well as numerous felony and capital felony cases such as sexual battery and murder. For eight years of his career, Jeff was assigned to Drug Court and Violation of Probation Court.
Drug Court was a rewarding experience. The goal of Drug Court was to get treatment for individuals that were arrested for felony possession charges and other charges related to substance abuse. While working in this court, Jeff had to ensure that his clients' due process rights were upheld. This position also required coordination with the Drug Court administrative staff and treatment providers to ensure that the clients were receiving the best possible treatment for their substance abuse issues. It is sad to say, but the only way to get drug treatment at little to no cost to an individual is to get arrested with a felony drug charge.
While in Drug Court, Jeff was also assigned to a court that only heard felony violations of probation. This position was detail orientated and required complete understanding of felony scoresheets and sentencing structures. This position was a high-volume and fast-paced environment and lead to many positive outcomes for Jeff's clients.
Jeff has handled numerous cases including domestic violence, DUIs, Driving without a License, thefts, assaults, batteries, burglaries to just name a few. Whatever your current legal issue is, Jeff will give you an confidential and honest opinion regarding your matter.
