  • Andrea King Robertson

    Jeff is an absolutely fantastic attorney. He has the amazing ability to comprehend the most complex legal concepts, and distill them down to make them accessible to judges, juries, clients, and other attorneys. That's one of the most valuable traits you can hope for in a criminal defense lawyer. Jeff is very well respected in the criminal justice system, and has a reputation for working hard to achieve the best results for his clients. He doesn't back down from a fight! I call on Jeff for advice in complex matters, and never fail to come away from those conversations with insight and encouragement. I consider him one of my mentors, as he helped train me when I began my practice 11 years ago. You will be in excellent hands if you hire Jeff. I endorse him without hesitation.
