About Me

Jeff is the principal partner at Sterling Law Offices; responsibilities include client interaction, attorney recruitment, and networking for the firm.

Prior to forming Sterling Law Offices Jeff served for nine years as a litigation attorney at a local Wisconsin law firm McLario & Helm. Additionally, Jeff founded BizLab in 2003 a successful business incubator in Menomonee Falls with over 130 employees and $20,000,000 in annual revenue.

Jeff earned a B.A. degree in history from Bob Jones University and his Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Southern Illinois University School of Law in 1997.

At home, Jeff is the husband to Winona and dad to Liam and Jack. Other outside interests include traveling, being a voracious reader, fishing, disc golf, and leadership training and development.

Jeff became a lawyer to help people get what they want and need. Jeff says, “Life is full of ups and downs, and being a lawyer often affords the opportunity to help people navigate those turbulent waters.”
