  • Edward Box

    I have known Jeff for many years, since we went to Murray State University for undergraduate degrees. Jeff's family law practice is very successful, which is a reflection on his ability to serve his clients well.

  • Stephen F. McDonough

    I first met Jeff at a conference several years ago. We discovered that we were both family law attorneys and musicians. Since that time, Jeff and I have kept in touch and share information related to our practices and technology. We've continued to see each other at conferences over the last few years. Jeff is smart and committed to providing great results and service to his clients, all while being as efficient as possible so client's legal fees stay under control. It was clear to me that he was well-versed in family law matters. Although our practices are in different states, I would absolutely refer Jeff without hesitation to anyone in need of an effective advocate or mediator in the Paducah, KY area.
