I have practiced business law and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) for over twenty-five years. As a business attorney, I assist businesses with formation and planning; purchases and sales of existing businesses; termination of business entities; commercial leasing matters; and employment matters. My other focus is on mediation and arbitration, where I help businesses settle disputes outside of the courtroom.
What I enjoy most about being an attorney is helping people transform their hobbies and passions into successful businesses. Whether I'm helping someone start a restaurant or a software company, I'm always mindful of the goal, which is to take care of the legal aspects of a business pursuit, so my client can focus on growing it. A lot of people think attorneys can get in the way of a transaction, but my philosophy is just the opposite. My job is to help a client achieve his or her goal while avoiding potential pitfalls as much as possible.

I have referred several clients to Jeff and have worked alongside him on several matters. He is very thoughtful and responsive and an excellent lawyer. His PhD in Psychology and business acumen make him an excellent choice for business related mediations as well.
