Jeff has practiced law for fifteen (15) years in the Tidewater area and has handled a wide variety of civil and criminal cases both in Federal Court and in all of the area's state courts.
Jeff is a former prosecutor with the Norfolk Commonwealth Attorney's Office where he gained extensive experience handling drug cases and cases involving crimes of violence including murder, robbery and sexual assaults.
Since returning to this office in 1997, where he is now a partner, Jeff specializes in criminal defense work. He is committed to fighting for the rights of each and every one of his clients.
Jeff recognizes that the government has the power to deprive people of their freedom, their property, and in some cases, even their lives. Our jails and prisons hold too many people wrongly accused and convicted for crimes they did not commit. Jeff will use all of his experience and training to protect and to defend his client.
Jeff graduated from Virginia Tech and attended law school at The Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William and Mary. Jeff has lectured at the Norfolk Police Academy as well as on behalf of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association.
