Jeff is Chair of the firm's Tax and Benefits Department, the firm's Retirement Plan Trustees, and serves on the firm's Board of Directors. He focuses his practice on estate planning, probate and trust administration, estate and trust litigation, succession planning for middle-market and closely held businesses, and individual and fiduciary income taxation in both Ohio and Florida spending significant time in both our Ohio and Florida offices. He represents both individuals and corporate fiduciaries and believes he is particularly adept at dealing with those difficult family situations where family business interests are involved or where a client's beneficiaries might not get along. Jeff has been licensed to practice in Ohio and Florida for more than 20 years.
