About me

I've done a lot of things in my life.  I worked construction, farming and forestry before going to law school.  I graduated when I was 35. These life experiences make me a better lawyer because I understand my clients' needs when they are injured and in a jam. One of the greatest pleasures in my life is making multi-billion dollar insurance companies do what is right by my clients. I fight for my clients' rights everyday. Let me fight for you.

  • Melissa D Carter

    Jeff is a remarkable lawyer who brings compassion and experience to every case he takes on. I have been opposing counsel to him on multiple cases and found him to be extremely professional, a zealous advocate for his clients and a class act. I would recommend Jeff without hesitation.

  • James Stephen Sorrels

    I've known Jeff for over 20 years. Our offices were next door to one another for some years, constantly comparing notes and sharing ideas on how best to help our clients who had been injured by someone else. We have stayed in close contact and confer on many cases. He is a very capable lawyer who respects his clients, and a good man with a great family. I'm proud to say he's a friend of mine. James S.
