Associate Attorney - Joslyn Law Firm

For well over a decade, Jeff has zealously defended clients in misdemeanor and felony offenses.  Born and raised in Illinois, Jeff attended St. Ambrose University in Iowa where he graduated Cum Laude with two bachelor’s degrees in Finance and Economics.  Before graduation, he developed a passion for legal advocacy, specifically criminal law.  He knew before attending law school he wanted to defend individuals’ constitutional rights.

He attended Western Michigan University, Thomas Cooley Law School in Michigan, where his passion for criminal defense grew.  He honed his craft in oral advocacy and negotiation.  Before graduating, Jeff interned in Columbus, Ohio as a law clerk at Yavitch & Palmer, Co., L.P.A.  After admission to practice law in 2009, he continued with the private firm working solely on criminal and traffic defense.

For many years, he represented and counseled numerous individuals in their time of need.  He negotiated favorable resolutions for countless clients and tried cases to juries and judges in even in the most complicated of criminal and traffic situations.  This experience allows him to evaluate problems and quickly develop a strategy to seek the best outcome.

Jeff prides himself on not being the stereotypical defense attorney.  He understands the importance of listening to clients, and he goes out of his way to make sure that every client is comforted during stressful times.  He understands that most clients contact him at the scariest time of their lives.  By retaining him, they are entrusting him to navigate the storm often when their freedom is in jeopardy.  He is serious about taking on each problem and focused on alleviating client stress and concern along the way.  Jeff believes that creating this sympathetic and secure attorney-client relationship is the only way to passionately and efficiently represent his clients.
