Jeffrey also studied international law in France and Argentina as part of his degree program.
After finishing his juris doctorate, Jeffrey moved to South Florida and worked for an international law firm in downtown Miami. He then took an in-house position with a manufacturing company focused on import/export of transportation products (i.e. China practice). Before making the move to Palm Beach County and starting his own practice, Jeffrey also worked as an in-house advisor for a real estate brokerage firm handling purchase transactions, joint ventures, investor matters, developer matters, and disputes.
Prior to his legal career, Jeffrey taught Rhetoric & Writing at San Diego State University. As a graduate student, Jeffrey moved to Spain where he mastered Spanish and made important foreign contacts. Since that experience, he has maintained close ties with Europe and South America and added a working knowledge of both French and Portuguese. As an undergraduate, Jeffrey also studied at University of Hawai’i, and his practice today includes close collaboration with Hawai’i attorneys in the context of foreclosure rescue.
