My goal is to not only continue the work I do in consumer protection as a trial lawyer, but to give greater voice to the importance of those struggles— the need to protect consumer rights and all of the Bill of Rights, rather than just the ones that get more focus in publicized political elections and often disingenuous debate.

Standing between large corporations and the harm their self-interested policies do to American consumers, Jeffrey is also focused on protecting consumer rights and giving a greater voice to the importance of this struggle — the need to protect consumer rights and ALL of the Bill of Rights, rather than just the ones that get more focus in publicized political elections and often disingenuous debate.

Jeffrey believes that Americans should be aware that the right to Trial by Jury is protected by the Bill of Rights and that 7th Amendment is under constant attack by large corporations with organized money to support lobbyists and certain political figures. The 7th Amendment is no less sacred nor essential to protecting freedom in America than other protections afforded by the Framers, whether they be the 1st Amendment, the 2nd, Amendment, the 5th Amendment, or any other. In every legislative body in Congress and in all 50 States, there are a constant stream of proposed laws, written and funded by large corporations, that are intended to take away existing rights of American consumers.

Jeffrey is here to help protect private citizens and consumers who may have been harmed by large corporate companies and lack the resources to wage such fights.


“My primarily goal in my professional life is, and has always been, to do social justice through the civil justice system and to protect the 7th Amendment of the United States Constitution. “

"Many cases arise from events that occurred long ago. Times change, but human life and human dignity have always been, and remain, uniquely precious. Reminding jurors of these essential truths is at the core of what I do."

“America’s opioid epidemic is worsening. For every opioid overdose in America that results in death, there are approximately 30 overdoses that require urgent medical care.”

“Drug companies collectively spent billions of dollars promoting a dangerous but highly effective promotional lie.”

“The most destructive but effective false claim that drug companies spread to promote the Big Lie was that addiction was rare among those taking opioids for chronic pain – less than 1%.”

“Exposure to opioids, specifically, dosages and duration of use are, and have always been, the two biggest risk factors for causing opioid addiction in anyone.”

“When I get to do something that really improves somebody's circumstance by holding a company or another person accountable for their wrongdoing, that is by far for me the most gratifying times in my career”

Chair of the Texas Opioid MDL Plaintiffs Steering Committee

This is a group that seeks to hold drug manufacturers and other supply chain corporations responsible for their role in creating and prolonging the opioid epidemic in Texas. In 2017, Jeffrey B.

Jeffrey will be one of the lead attorneys for Dallas County when the state’s first opioid trial begins in 2022.
