Jeff has served on the faculty for the Office of Judicial Education for over 25 years and has taught judges in the areas of evidence, alternative dispute resolution, domestic violence and a variety of civil litigation matters. This, combined with his years on the bench, has given him the foundation needed to consult on effective trial presentation, evidentiary analysis, and jury selection.
