In November 2017 Jeff was inducted into the NAEPC Estate Planning Hall of Fame, becoming its 105th inductee. US News & World Report named Jeff as one of the 2018, 2019 and 2020 Best Lawyers in America. He has been rated "AV" (preeminent) by Martindale Hubbell since 1990.

The house contains one of the largest collections of IRS and tax memorabilia in the US. The collection of over 100,000 items was featured in a front-page article in the Wall Street Journal on April 15, 2015 ? a suitable day for such an article.

The firm provides estate planning, probate and post-mortem tax planning services in the metro Atlanta counties, including Fulton, Cobb, Gwinnett, DeKalb, Forsyth, and Cherokee.
