The son of a US Army paratrooper & quasi-father of a US Army OIF multi-tour combat veteran, Jeffrey regretfully missed his call to military service, instead pursuing a legal career upon completion of his education. Recognizing the perpetual debt he owed to those who selflessly answered that call, Jeffrey has dedicated a substantial portion of his personal time and resources serving those who have served since 2001.
Jeffrey is a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, actively licensed to practice in New Jersey since 1992. He has managed litigation nationally, predominantly arising from catastrophic casualty events, and has tried in excess of 65 matters to verdict. Jeffrey was honored in 2020 by induction as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, widely regarded as the preeminent organization of trial lawyers in North America. Additionally, he has attained the rank of Advocate in the American Board of Trial Advocates, has been recognized as a Barrister in the Order of Juris for the Litigation Counsel of America and has achieved an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell.
Arising directly from the pro bono battle he waged on behalf of CCM William Markham, US Air Force (retired), Jeffrey remains accredited by the Department of Veteran Affairs to present and prosecute claims for veterans’ benefits. In this regard, he is a founding principal with Project OVAT – a charitable entity dedicated to providing medical and legal support at no cost to select veterans pursuing VA claims.
