Jeffrey D Boyd
Since his graduation from law school in 1982, Jeff Boyd has established a remarkable legal legacy. Jeff began his path to the law in Kent, Ohio, where he attended Kent State University. Upon graduation, he enrolled in The Ohio State University College of Law, in Columbus, Ohio, where Jeff spent much of his career, working both as a partner at large law firms and as the head of his own law office.

Throughout the course of his career, Jeff has tried over 100 civil jury trials, an impressive accomplishment that is rare even among experienced trial lawyers.

He has also litigated numerous business, probate, and family law disputes.
Throughout his career, Jeff has endeavored to provide personalized service to each client he works with, preferring to take part in every aspect of developing a case rather than relying on staff to manage details.
