Trial Presentation Manager
Jeff joined The Focal Point in 2017 and brings 20-plus years of courtroom presentation experience. He has supported more than 200 trials to verdict and over 300 hearings, arbitrations, mock trials, and other court matters. Jeff’s extensive experience as a “hot seat” operator and his passion for trial presentation have earned him a place in many high-profile matters with the country’s top trial lawyers. His two decades of courtroom experience, observing all types of trials throughout the country, make him a valuable asset to any trial team.
Jeff’s trial work focuses on complex high-stakes litigation. He is often retained on cases that involve voluminous amounts of evidence, and he has proven again and again his ability to organize and quickly present anything that is thrown his way. Some of his notable cases include a copyright infringement trial on behalf of Google in San Francisco, an eminent domain case for the East Bay Regional Parks District in Oakland, and a patent infringement trial for Samsung in Marshall, Texas. He also works regularly at International Trade Commission hearings in Washington, DC, where his vast experience is utilized effectively in the fast-paced ITC-hearing environment. In addition, Jeff has appeared multiple times as the courtroom technology expert for the State Bar of California’s “Champions of the Courtroom” and many other CLE programs.
Jeff holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Analysis and Design from the University of California, Irvine. Jeff has a love of travel and all things Hawaiian. When not working you’ll find him in his succulent garden or whale watching. Aloha!
