Jeff exemplifies the type of high-caliber attorneys we're adding, and his addition demonstrates our ability to consistently attract top legal talent in a very competitive hiring environment."

A graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law, Mr. Yeatman focuses his practice on the representation of domestic and international manufacturers in class action, mass tort, consumer fraud, products liability, and warranty litigation.
