    I have known Jeff since we were both associates at a firm in San Francisco. We have stayed in close touch and I have enjoyed watching him develop into perhaps the finest trial lawyer I know. He has a remarkable ability to dive into a complicated case, hone in on the issues that matter, and get results. I heartily endorse Jeff.
