Although Jeff hails originally from New York, he has fully adopted Maryland as home. In college, he served as an EMT for 3 years, which not only served as a foundation for his medical knowledge, but also gave him an inside understanding and empathy for public safety officials. Today, when not working, you are likely to find him with his wife and two kids, whether exploring new travel destinations or just relaxing watching soccer games or his beloved Ravens.
A graduate of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, Jeff has been in practice before the Maryland, D.C., and Federal Courts and the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission since 2004, after serving as a law clerk in the Circuit Court for St. Mary’s County, Maryland for two years. Prior to joining Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman & Darby LLP, he has represented thousands of individuals, businesses, and governmental entities in a wide array of legal matters, including workers’ compensation, personal injury, medical and other professional malpractice claims, social security benefits, construction defect litigation, wills, and corporate work. However, workers’ compensation has always been his passion. In representing a large local government for over 6 years, he handled thousands of workers’ compensation claims before the Commission and the Courts, with many of these involving the subtle issues specific to government employees and public safety officials. He now hopes to bring that perspective to work for his clients, using his experience and knowledge to stay one step ahead of the defense.
Jeff has served as long-time co-chair of the Bar Association for Montgomery County’s Workers’ Compensation Section. In this capacity, he has facilitated a positive relationship between Montgomery County lawyers on both sides of the aisle, as well as the Commission. In 2016, he helped organize a symposium on opioid use in the Workers’ Compensation setting, which was presented to hundreds of attorneys, doctors, claims professionals, and the entire Workers’ Compensation Commission. He has continued to give this presentation to various groups, including to workers, employers, and insurance companies. As opioids continue to be prescribed to injured workers, Jeff has worked diligently to educate others in the field to not only get help to the dependent, but also to avoid opioid issues in the future. He has also presented on numerous workers’ compensation related topics to the Montgomery County Bar Association, the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Education Association, trade groups, and insurance companies.Contact Me
