Jeff is a Shareholder in the firm’s Litigation Group. His practice primarily focuses in the area of labor and employment, commercial litigation, cybersecurity, and automotive compliance.

Jeff represents employers in litigation involving claims of employment harassment, discrimination, retaliation, leave laws, wage and hour laws, whistleblower laws, enforcement of and defense against non-solicitation and non-competition agreements, background check laws, and other employment-related claims.  Jeff represents numerous industries, including clients within the automotive, retail, hospitality, health services, transportation, manufacturing, and construction industries.

In addition to litigation, Jeff counsels and advises employers on various employment issues. He creates new and reviews current employment-related documents, including personnel policies and handbooks, executive employment agreements, confidentiality and restrictive covenant agreements, compensation plans, background check authorizations and disclosures, arbitration agreements, severance agreements, and advises employers on applying and enforcing such documents. He also routinely advises employers on issues within the workplace, including issues involving hiring, termination, medical leave, compensation, employment classifications, retaliation, harassment, loss of confidential information, and contract disputes. Jeff also has experience guiding employers through employment-related agency investigations, including investigations by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Department of Labor.

Jeff is active in both professional and Bar-related activities. He currently serves as President of the Hillsborough County Bar Association Young Lawyers’ Division, Treasurer of Success 4 Kids & Families, and is a member of the Employment and Labor Law Committee in the Defense Research Institute.
