Jeff Gardner is a solutions oriented, business minded attorney, focused on results for his clients.
Posted by Harlan, EVP Capital Pacific Bank
Jeff has worked closely with Capital Pacific Bank for many years. During the recession, Jeff was an integral part of our special assets team, participating in weekly meetings, guiding legal strategy and doing hand's on legal work for the bank.
Forefront in Jeff's mind is, "What is the best business solution to this matter?" His direct and candid advice weighing the legal issues against the economic/business issues provides clear insight into problems and sound advice on next steps.
Finally, Jeff's knowledge of the law with respect to creditor rights work is outstanding. His ability to quickly provide detailed legal opinions, motions or correspondence has routinely exceeded my expectations.
I have worked with Jeff since 2002. He has a unique blend of experience that really assists his clients. He understands banking procedures and regulations while seeking the best solution for both the creditor and the debtor. Jeff has worked with me on general documentation, workout loans, bankruptcies and regulatory issues.
Jeff has held senior positions in the banking industry before attending law school and entering private practice. From a lenderâ€™s point of view, it is really helpful to have an attorney that has working experience as a Credit Approval Officer and then Head of Special Assets. I donâ€™t have to explain what the bankâ€™s needs to accomplish, he already knows what to do because he has been in these situations in various lending positions.
I have worked with Jeff while at 3 different financial institutions; he and his team have always been very professional in their approach to a problem, very responsive to the needs of the client and very timely. I would recommend Jeff to any bank, they would enjoy the experience. .
