About me

Jeff began his career as a public defender in both Pike County, Missouri and later in St. Louis County.  During that time he conducted numerous jury trials, often acquitting his clients.  He entered private practice in 1999 and continued honing his jury trial skills.  In 2001, he was named as a lead attorney to the United States District Court's (Eastern District of Missouri) Criminal Justice Act panel.  In addition to being retained to represent individuals in both the state and federal courts, Jeff is regularly appointed by Federal Magistrate judges to represent indigent clients, often handling complex wiretap and drug conspiracy cases.
