Jeff brings a unique blend of creativity and experience to his clients’ cases. As a federal law clerk, Jeff learned firsthand from “behind the bench” which arguments were persuasive to judges and juries. As a trial lawyer, he brings that insight to every case. Jeff zealously represents both plaintiffs and defendants in a broad array of commercial matters, including oil and gas, insurance, partnership, professional responsibility, fiduciary duty and contract disputes.

Jeff represents clients before juries, judges and arbitrators, in both state and federal courts. In addition to his trial work, Jeff works on appellate teams writing briefs in the Texas Courts of Appeals, the Texas Supreme Court and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and has argued before the Fourteenth District Court of Appeals in Houston, Texas. In every case, he is driven to find creative solutions to complicated matters and knows that getting the best result for the client means thoughtfully navigating litigation from the very beginning to maximize chances of success at every stage.

Born and raised in Texas, Jeff also lived in Boston, Scotland and Latvia before returning to Texas to pursue his legal career. After graduating from the University of Houston Law Center, he clerked for Chief Judge Thad Heartfield of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Jeff practiced complex commercial litigation for five years at a litigation boutique in Houston prior to joining Hall Maines Lugrin.
