About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

I serve a wide variety of corporate and individual clients on projects ranging from drafting simple contracts and complex merger agreements for business clients to preparing wills and trusts for individuals. No matter what the project is, the focus in my law practice is always on the client. The question I ask myself is "How can I use the skills I have developed as a lawyer to put my client in the best possible position?"

After graduating from law school I practiced law with both regional and national law firms in the Midwest. My practice was largely centered around corporate and tax counseling and estate planning. After working in law firms for several years I moved to an in-house position with a publicly traded company. After working in that environment for five years, I decided to open my own firm to help people in my Rosemount community.

Exceptional, Knowledgeable, Personable, Professional
Jeff provides expertise to my business and clients (Large Financial Institutions) in the non-qualified executive benefits space (Split Dollar, Deferred Compensation, SERPS, etc). We work with Jeff because of his knowledge of all things related to drafting new and reviewing existing agreements, as well as details of 409A and other applicable laws/statutes. Additionally, I have personally worked with Jeff on small business issues, and wills/estate planning. He is a very good lawyer, and most importantly he is worthy of your trust.
