"My job is to make my client’s job easier."
When he’s not successfully representing Hartline Barger’s clients, Jeff can be found on the ski slopes or touring around on one of his motorcycles, including a bike used as an exemplar in a recent trial. Every March, Jeff and some doctors head out to West Texas for the Rattlesnake Roundup, where they camp, drink, shoot, tell stories and occasionally hunt snakes. Catch and release only.
