Jeffery grew up in Richmond, Missouri where he graduated a Spartan in 1987. He then attended William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri where he graduated in 1991 with a double major before heading to the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law. He graduated with a JD degree in 1994 with the honor of Order of the Coif, a distinct acknowledgement reserved only for those graduating in the top ten percent of their class.
He focuses his practice in personal injury, workers’ compensation, wrongful death, insurance disputes, and other serious accident cases. He also handles void and wrongful foreclosure cases. He is a member of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys which is dedicated to protecting the rights of those injured to seek justice.
Jeffery is a dedicated member of Trinity Lutheran Church of Clinton. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes also holds a special place in his heart as he follows his Father and former Spartan Football Coach and teacher Tom Adams’ leadership in FCA. Jeffery currently serves as a co-huddle leader of the Clinton High School group and three middle school huddles.
He and his wife Kimberly have been happily married since 1992 and have made Clinton their home along with their children Zachary, Hannah, and Noah. He spends his free time coaching the Clinton Christian Academy boys’ basketball team as well as numerous sports teams in which his children are involved. He also enjoys enticing Rocky Mountain National Park trout to fall for a dry fly, supporting Clinton High School sports, and playing basketball.
His favorite scripture is John 14:6: Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
