About Me

When not running my law firm and helping clients, I am a busy father to four children.  On the weekends, we boat, fish, and barbeque with other families in Hobe Sound.  And I usually serve as an assistant coach to one of my son's soccer teams.

  • Damian Jason Turco

    I endorse this lawyer. Jeff is an outstanding probate and trust litigation attorney based in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. I worked with Jeff on some law clerk work prior to my becoming an attorney and I've stayed in touch ever since. Jeff's approach to practice is constant mastery of the subject matter. I have observed him move cases to the point of checkmate their outset. I would not hesitate to send him referrals for this type of work.
