Attorney Awards


Jeff represents clients in many different areas of the law, including employment, administrative, commercial, defamation, and appellate law. He has negotiated many favorable settlements for employees, licensed professionals, and business owners. Before entering private practice, Jeff worked for numerous judges in both state and federal courts, including a year-long clerkship with Arizona Court of Appeals Judges Patrick Irvine and Samuel A. Thumma. This broad range of experience formed the foundation of Jeff's litigation skills and gave him the tools to think critically and write persuasively.

Professional Experience

With a few exceptions, Jeff primarily represents employees. He has been successful in negotiating favorable settlements for employees seeking payment of their wages, including commissions, bonuses, and paid-time off. Jeff has also been successful negotiating settlements for employees alleging claims for wrongful discharge, discrimination, sexual harassment, “whistle blowing,” and failure to pay minimum wage.

Administrative Law
Jeff assists professionals and students who are in trouble with their licensing boards and/or universities. Jeff has been successful in obtaining favorable for licensed professionals, and he has been successful in convincing universities to re-admit students and to offer test-taking accommodations to students with disabilities.

Commercial Law
Jeff represents owners, officers, and shareholders on a wide variety of contract disputes.
Jeff has considerable experience both defending and pursuing defamation claims.

Appellate Law
Jeff served as a law clerk for Arizona Court of Appeals Judge Patrick Irvine. When Judge Irvine left the Court, Jeff was afforded the opportunity to work with and draft appellate decisions for nearly every Arizona Court of Appeals Judges before clerking for Judge Samuel A. Thumma. The unique clerkship has given him a true understanding of appellate law. Jeff has since drafted several appellate briefs.

General Litigation
Jeff represents clients in both state and federal courts on a wide range of issues.
