A co-founder of Lieser Skaff Alexander, Jeff concentrates his practice on complex business and real estate litigation. Jeff also serves as class action counsel and as a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator.
From 2017-2022, Jeff was named to the Florida Legal Elite roster. The select lawyers on this prestigious list represent fewer than 1.5% of active Florida Bar members. Jeff has also been selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers® magazine each year from 2013-2017, and a Super Lawyer from 2021-2023.
In addition, Jeff is a Reserve Judge Advocate in the U.S. Army J.A.G. Corps, where he holds the rank of Major. He currently serves with the Trial Defense Service (TDS), whose motto is “Defending Those Who Defend America.” He previously deployed to Iraq with the First Heavy Brigade Combat Team, First Infantry Division (“Devil’s Brigade”) and served as the Brigade’s Legal Representative in arresting and jailing violent extremists who attacked against U.S. Forces. Jeff prosecuted such terrorist defendants in Iraqi criminal trials, and obtained record-breaking results, including five convictions. Jeff has received multiple awards for his military service, including the Defense Meritorious Service Medal.
Jeff attended law school at the University of Florida in Gainesville where he clerked at one of that city’s oldest and largest law firms. After law school, he served as the Finance Director of a successful statewide political campaign and subsequently worked at prestigious, full-service and statewide law firm. While there, Jeff litigated in state and federal court on behalf of multiple Fortune 500 companies, including insurance companies and financial institutions.
He was recently chosen to serve a three-year term on a Florida Bar Grievance Committee. In that capacity, he is responsible for reviewing complaints, similar to the function of a grand jury, and also investigating complaints. The committee determines if there is probable cause to believe a lawyer violated the professional conduct rules imposed by the Supreme Court of Florida. If so, the committee considers what disciplinary action, if any, should be taken against the lawyer.
In addition to law, Jeff maintains an interest in politics and government. Jeff was previously selected as one of only six delegates who traveled to Australia on behalf of the American Council of Young Political Leaders (ACYPL). In 2023, Mayor Jane Castor appointed Jeff to the City of Tampa’s Civil Service Board, which hears appeals from City employees related to alleged adverse employment action.
