Jeff's practice includes conducting internal investigations involving criminal and civil issues, particularly within the technology (including artificial intelligence) and life sciences space.

Jeff also co-chaired a three-week jury trial of a former Santa Clara police officer for cybercrime and honest services fraud charges arising out of his sale of confidential law enforcement information to members of a violent street gang, and he led two separate trials against a CEO and CFO arising out of a multimillion dollar Ponzi scheme in which the jury found the defendants guilty of conspiracy to commit mail, wire, and securities fraud.

Jeff currently serves on the Federal Bar Association's national White Collar Committee and speaks regularly on issues related to white collar crime and investigations.
