Legal Practice Director
Jeff originally started work with Attwood Marshall as an Articled Law Clerk in February 1981. His master Solicitor during the course of his Articles was founding partner Bob Marshall. Although his initial practical work was in the commercial area under Bob Marshall, it was quickly apparent that his forte was in litigation and that has been the predominant area that Jeff has practised in since starting at Attwood Marshall as a young 18 year old Articled Law Clerk in 1981.
Jeff became a partner in the firm in 1991 and later took over the running of the personal injuries department, which at that stage had 16 lawyers. Jeff later became one of the first lawyers to become a dual accredited Law Society specialist in personal injury law in both New South Wales and Queensland.
Throughout his career, Jeff has also had extensive experience in commercial litigation matters involving all types of different disputes and issues. It is through his experience in the litigation area that led him to his current area of expertise, which is in Estate Litigation. Jeff heads up the powerful Wills & Estates Department of Attwood Marshall which has some of the most experienced and knowledgeable lawyers in this complex area. Boasting 8 lawyers, 2 law graduates and 3 senior paralegals, the department is larger than most legal firms and practices solely in Wills & Estate matters in both QLD & NSW.
Jeff is the architect of the firm’s electronic systems and the firm’s wish to become a paperless office.
Jeff became the managing partner of Attwood Marshall in 1998 and has continued in that role since that time. His experience in running a multi million dollar turnover business has enabled him to provide years of practical experience to our various business and corporate clients.
Jeff is an avid thoroughbred racehorse breeder and has a small boutique stud at Mudgeeraba in the Gold Coast Hinterland. It is his experience in the thoroughbred industry that has triggered the development of Attwood Marshall’s specialist division in thoroughbred breeding and racing.
Although Jeff still has an active file load in litigation matters, his main duties of more recent times are concentrated on running the business of Attwood Marshall Lawyers Pty Ltd and continually improving the systems and training of our employees to ensure that we deliver a quality legal product.
