Jeff graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2011 and was awarded the gold medal for achieving the highest academic standing in his graduating class. He has gone on to argue cases at all levels of court in Ontario. He has successfully defended cases involving drug charges (possession, trafficking, and importing), violent offences (everything from assaults all the way up to second degree murder), all manner of property crimes (such as robbery, mischief, break & enter, and theft), weapons offences, drinking and driving charges, and offences against police (obstruct, assault peace officer, and resist arrest).  


Before hanging up his shingle in 2012, Jeff clerked at the Ontario Court of Appeal for Justices Doherty, Feldman, and Pepall. Working at the top court in Ontario added to the practical legal experience that Jeff had gained working at Pivot Legal Society in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, at Parkdale Community Legal Services in the immigration division, and at the downtown Toronto public interest civil litigation firm of Klippensteins Barristers & Solicitors.


Before entering the legal profession, Jeff was involved with solidarity projects in Bolivia and Guatemala. Jeff continues his political work today through the Law Union of Ontario. He is also an organizer and co-facilitator of the Law and Social Change Jam.
