About Me

Jeff Springer has more than two decades of experience serving as an advocate for individuals, families and businesses. He was an honors program graduate of Baylor University, and went on to obtain his Juris Doctorate at Baylor Law School. Mr. Springer holds a Certificate in civil trial law from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and is a member of the American Bar Association and the State Bar of Texas. He served as President of the Denton County Bar Association in 1997-98. A former Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of North Texas, Mr. Springer has published a number of articles covering topics ranging from tort reform to jury selection. His trial experience is diverse, and includes not only several civil trial verdicts on both sides of the docket, but also the successful criminal defense of a person accused of murder. He won his first million dollar civil verdict while still in his twenties, and successfully defended a national bank during the same time period. He has since represented hundreds of clients in a diverse array of major litigation matters. A husband and father of two, Jeff is actively involved with his family, his church and his community, where he serves on charitable boards and in other leadership positions, and assists in teaching youth Sunday school.
