In the 70’s, Jeff’s father got remarried to the sister of Sandra Day O’Connor, who at the time was a state senator, and who would later become the first female justice ever confirmed to United States Supreme Court, and the inspiration for Jeff’s career in law. Jeff finished college at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado and worked in Denver Colorado in the wholesale seafood industry where he cut fish and drove a truck for several years before attending law school at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. Following law school, Jeff hopped in a Suzuki Samurai and drove over 3000 miles with no air conditioning to south Florida where he would go on to start his practice as a trial lawyer, and eventually a husband and a father.
