Jeff-headshot-web-nameCaliforniaWhile others his age were hitting the beach with their surfboards, a young Jeff Walsworth began his professional career by pushing a lawnmower over the landscape of a rapidly changing and developing Orange County, California.  He developed a loyal following among local business owners, corporations and professionals who quickly recognized Jeff as personable, motivated and willing to roll up his sleeves and dive into his work.  Even then, he considered his clients invaluable, and listened closely when they shared their thoughts and insight.

In 1976, after mowing many a lawn, Jeff received his law degree.  At the graduation ceremony, a number of his former landscaping clients, who would later become firm clients, were in attendance.  At the time he started his Orange County law practice, Jeff was the youngest attorney in the State of California. 

Jeff has been representing and counseling clients on a variety of legal matters since 1977.  Jeff is Co-Chair of the firm's transactional department, which has processed more than $3 billion in transactions since the year 2000.  He has been a judicially recognized designated expert on complex transactions and litigation  and a noted speaker for California real estate continuing education requirements. 

Indeed, one man's dream has grown into a flourishing practice with more than 75 lawyers and four offices.  As his spare time allows, Jeff partakes in his hobbies, such as hiking, snow-skiing, reading various entrepreneurial and financial periodicals and studying history.  He feels researching the past better equips him to help and support his favorite causes and others, including clients.  Helping others move forward provides his greatest rewards.  Each day, Jeff says he is the luckiest guy in the world, because when he wakes up he not only has his family, but he is grateful and fortunate to also have clients he values, respects and cherishes.
