Education

Jeffrey earned a bachelor’s degree from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business-Bloomington, double majoring in finance and marketing. He began his career as a financial analyst in the Chicago subsidiary of a multinational investment bank. Jeffrey returned to Bloomington and the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, where he earned his J.D., cum laude.

Career

During law school, Jeffrey worked in the Chicago office of a multinational law firm, focusing on complex commercial litigation and general corporate work. Jeffrey then returned home to Carmel to begin a full-time legal career, first practicing in the areas of commercial and civil litigation at a mid-size law firm. He was recruited to a general counsel position at an Carmel real estate development company, where he was responsible for handling a broad range of matters including contract negotiation, commercial leasing, real estate transactions, vendor service agreements, and general corporate work.

Jeffrey eventually returned to private practice to further pursue a career focused on representing individuals and business owners in commercial and civil matters. He collaborates with and counsels his clients throughout the course of litigation, through trial when necessary. When litigating commercial matters, Jeff values the opportunity to go beyond the borders of the issue at hand, to truly understand each client’s business structure, model and goals.

Jeffrey was a founding shareholder of ROBERTS MEANS, LLC in 2012.
