If Jeff were marooned on a desert island, his chosen books (he couldn’t make do with just the one) would be The Code of the Woosters by P G Wodehouse, which he thinks is simply the funniest and most delightful book ever written, and David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, which he considers is probably the greatest novel of all time.
Jeff is married to a wonderful wife and has four beautiful children (three sons and a daughter; she is the youngest), an uncontrollable dog and a habit of slinking away very quietly with a book to a remote spot in the house when they start becoming too loud.
In his spare time Jeff reads crime novels and thrillers and collects signed first edition hardback books. He enjoys watching rugby, going to the theatre and live comedy nights. Jeff spends the rest of his time waiting patiently for Wales to win the Rugby World Cup.
Jeff acted for the successful husband in Sandler v Sandler & Lloyd Platt & Co (2010) EWHC 1415.
