About me

Jeff's goal is to aggressively defend his client’s rights, give the best customer service and to obtain the best outcome for clients for a reasonable fee. He will help you understand your options and advocate for you through the process to obtain that best result.


He is fluent in English, ancient Hebrew, and computer code.  He’s also a computer geek and puzzle solver. He loves games – and loves to win.  He’s always up for a challenge….whether negotiating a separation agreement or a plea bargain, but don’t ask him to choose paint colors or cook.


He’s not scared of anything- rafting over 10 foot high waterfall, zipping over the New River Gorge, two week trials or even chaperoning middle school youth group weekends.


He’s an Ordained minister, and is confident speaking in front of people in a church, or to a jury, or to the judge.


He gives back to his community – through his church, the Rotary Club, and through organizations that assist youth in schools and the rights of Latinos and mentally ill.

He’s originally from Michigan (ask him and he’ll show you where using his hand), but has lived in North Carolina for over 30 years.  He moved to Franklin from the Raleigh area.  Jeff received his J.D. from Campbell Law School, and opened Gillette Law to protect and defend those who are about to lose their freedom or lose their family.
