Jeffrey has been practicing law since 1996, with almost all of his legal experience exclusively in family law. He has worked on all types of cases, from custody and visitation cases to child and spousal support cases, from dividing multi-million dollar estates to cases when the marital estate is under water. Jeffrey has extensive experience not only researching and writing, but also in the courtroom. His calm demeanor resonates through his writing and when he is in court. Jeffrey believes that preparation of strong yet reasonable pleadings often leads to settlements prior to court or, if the case does not settle, to a good result in court.
Jeffrey earned his Juris Doctor from California Western School of Law where he graduated magna cum laude, was a staff writer and staff editor on Law Review and earned 5 American Jurisprudence Awards, including in Family Law and Trial Practice courses. He also studied International Law at Oxford University through a program with the University of San Diego School of Law. Prior to law school, Jeffrey attended California State University, Northridge and earned a degree in Finance.
Jeffrey is married with a child in middle school. He enjoys running - a lot! He qualified for and ran in the 2014 Boston Marathon. Since then, he has focused his running on trail and ultra-marathons and has run 10 ultra-marathons, including two 100-mile races. Jeffrey also enjoys hiking, camping and traveling with his family.
