Jeff has been a trial attorney since his admission to the Bar for the State of Illinois in 2003. His first job out of law school was as an attorney for injury victims. Jeff handled multiple jury trials in his first few months of practice and quickly developed a passion for getting justice for victims through settlements and trials. He then joined the State’s Attorney’s office in 2004, where he prosecuted misdemeanor and felony cases. In 2005 Jeff then went to work for Kanoski Bresney, concentrating on the representation of the injured. While there he tried numerous cases before juries in several counties throughout Illinois. In addition to his trial work, he also obtained successful results for injured clients in numerous settlements, arbitrations, and mediations. Jeff has also handled select cases before the Illinois Appellate Court. Jeff now owns Cisco Law, PC, where he continues to represent injury victims, along with criminally charged clients in select cases.
Jeff obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Illinois-Champaign in 2000, and his Juris Doctor from Northern Illinois University in 2003. In addition to the State of Illinois Bar, he is also admitted to practice before the Federal Central and Northern Districts of Illinois.
Growing up in a working-class neighborhood on Springfield’s east side, Jeff has not forgotten where he came from. For that reason, he has never represented insurance companies or corporations against regular people–and he never will. Fighting for the injured is his life’s calling. For Jeff, there is no better feeling than obtaining maximum compensation for a victim whose claim was initially denied by the insurance company.
