Jeffrey focuses his practice counseling the firm’s pension fund clients about the management and collection of withdrawal liability assessments. Jeffrey has a proven track record obtaining judgments against owners of the withdrawing employer and controlled group entities, negotiating large settlements from alleged successor entities and obtaining favorable arbitration rulings during withdrawal liability disputes. 


Jeffrey also pursues collection of unpaid contributions on behalf of J&K clients. He pursues all methods of collection, which include judgments against signatory employers, successor entities and alter-ego companies as well as individual owners.


While obtaining judgments is important, Jeffrey understands that a judgment is just the first step of collection and that, without successful follow through, a judgment is simply a piece of paper. In his five plus years with J&K, Jeffrey has successfully obtained turnover orders of company and personal assets including, but not limited to, vehicles, boats, wave runners, entire inventories and hundreds of thousands of dollars from bank accounts.  In addition, Jeffrey has obtained wage garnishment orders and recovered money for his clients by recording judgment liens. 


Jeffrey also represents J&K clients in non-collection litigation matters.  He has experience representing health and welfare funds in the pursuit and enforcement of subrogation and reimbursement rights where third party recovery exists.  He also has successfully pursued claims against service providers on behalf of J&K’s clients and has experience in participating in arbitrations presided over by the American Arbitration Association and FINRA.
