Jeff’s approach to law is to deeply understand both the short- and long-term issues affecting a client’s case and business. He then offers his legal expertise to counsel people in a way that ensures full understanding of their options and the practical consequences of the legal advice they receive, the actions to be taken, and the decisions to be made.

Jeff joined a Pittsburgh law firm as a full-time law clerk while attending law school in the evening. He passed the bar in 1988 and was immediately invited to join the firm as an associate. He was made a partner/shareholder in 1995 and served as president of the firm from 2001 until moving to Meyer, Unkovic & Scott in 2021. Jeff works as both a Litigator and Client Counselor, primarily with Banks, Businesses, and other Commercial Enterprises.

Jeff is licensed and admitted to practice in the state, federal and bankruptcy courts in the states of Pennsylvania and Ohio, is a member of the Allegheny County and Pennsylvania Bar Associations, and was named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer in 2007 in the area of Creditors’ Rights.
