He’s fluent in English, ancient Hebrew, and computer code. He’s also a computer geek and puzzle solver. He loves games – and loves to win. He’s always up for a challenge….whether reading surveys or deeds, negotiating a separation or real estate agreement or a plea bargain, but don’t ask him to choose paint colors or cook. He’s not scared of anything- rafting over 10 foot high waterfall, zipping over the New River Gorge, two week trials, complicated real estate deals or even chaperoning middle school youth group weekends. He’s an Ordained minister, and is confident speaking in front of people in a church, or to a jury, or to surveyors, opposing attorneys, or to the judge. He gives back to his community – through his church, the Rotary Club, and through organizations that assist youth in schools and the rights of Latinos and mentally ill. He’s originally from Michigan (ask him and he’ll show you where using his hand), but has lived in North Carolina for over 30 years. He moved to Franklin from the Raleigh area. Jeff received his J.D. from Campbell Law School and opened Gillette Law. In his spare time, he enjoys whitewater rafting, flying on a zip line, listening to bluegrass, tinkering in the workshop and exploring these beautiful mountains.
