An Attorney of Exceptional Distinction
Jeff graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University in 1983, graduating cum laude with his law degree. While he attended law school, he was also an associate editor for the Brigham Young University Law Review. After getting his degree, he moved to California and passed the bar. He began practicing divorce law in San Diego, joining the firm Gray Cary Ware & Freidenrich LLP—the largest law firm in San Diego at the time.
Jeff had the notable honor of building the firm’s entire family law practice from the ground up, immediately displaying incredible vision, leadership, and family law expertise. The firm is now a part of DLA Piper—one of the largest multinational law firms in the world.

After only 5 years of practice, he completed all the requirements needed for certification as a California State Bar Family Law Specialist—a distinction few attorneys ever achieve in their entire careers. Being recognized as a Family Law Specialist requires an exceptional knowledge of divorce law, extensive trial and litigation experience, and a dedication to continuous sharpening and improvement. In the decades since, Jeff has maintained his status as a family law expert through his handling of high-asset divorces, contentious custody cases, and complex matters in family law.
Decades as a Successful Practitioner
After making his mark at Gray Cary Ware & Freidenrich, Jeff went on to found his own family law practice. His practice achieved success for over 21 years and was included in the Martindale-Hubbell® Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyer™—a distinction held exclusively by the premier attorneys in each region.
Jeff’s 30+ years of experience also includes handling international custody cases under the Hague Convention as well as other complex matters. His reputation as a lawyer is marked by unanimous praise of his integrity, ethics, compassion, mediation skills, and talent for oral and written argument.
