Jeff, his wife and son reside in downtown Charleston. During those rare hours when Jeff is not in the office painstakingly pouring over legal documents, you may find him at home patiently restoring his 1973 Chevy Blazer convertible truck, perfecting his barbecue recipes, or fishing the inland waterways.
