Jeff grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona but has lived in Maryland since 1995. His practice focuses on the representation of clients in family law cases, including divorce, spousal and child support, child custody and visitation and the division of marital property. He has represented clients in family law matters in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Howard, Calvert and Queen Anne’s County. Prior to focusing on family law matters, Jeff handled commercial litigation cases, including complex commercial breach of contract disputes and business related torts. Jeff has also represented securities firms and individual registered representatives in litigation, including temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions, and in FINRA (formerly NASD) arbitrations. Jeff has over eighteen years of litigation experience representing clients in court as well as participating in countless negotiations, mediations and alternative dispute resolution processes. Jeff has successfully negotiated complex separation and property settlement agreements on behalf of his clients and is also experienced in litigating complex, high-conflict cases. While he believes that non-adversarial approaches are the best way to resolve family law cases, he understands that this is not always possible and is prepared to go to court to aggressively advocate on behalf of his clients when necessary. He welcomes the opportunity to speak with you about your specific situation and determine an effective, efficient plan to resolve your family law matter.
Jeff is married, the father of three daughters and resides in Queenstown, Maryland. In his spare time, Jeff is an avid soccer fanatic and player, a not so avid runner and a lover of the Baltimore Orioles.
