Born under a bad sign, tempered by cold climates and hard times, Irish-American, mixed with Scottish, English and French blood for good measure, Jeff grew up in Southern Rhode Island. He earned a B.A. in psychology and analytical psychology theories from Marlboro College in Vermont then spent a couple of years looking for steady work during the recession before deciding he’d better get back in school and earn an advanced degree. Jeff was Raised by wolves, who were raised by men, who were raised by wolves. So he took the LSAT, nailed it, loaded up his Mustang and drove across the country to Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, CA. Upon arriving he said, “California seems like a decent place to stay.” So here he is, hanging out with Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan in his free time, Talkin’ Dust Bowl Blues, Talking World War III Blues, and advancing a mad drive to make sense of the law.
