  • A child of the Rust Belt, Peter J. Jeffrey grew up in Toledo, Ohio. Although Peter has lived on the East Coast now for more than 23 years, he remains an avid Toledo Mud hens and Toledo Walleye fan and a proud Toledo Zoo Member. Growing up in working-class Toledo, Peter learned early the value of hard work and the sense of dignity that comes with it. In 1994, after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history, Peter moved to the Washington, DC metropolitan area for graduate school. A chance graduate student internship at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) led to an archivist position with the Nixon Presidential Materials Staff, where he reviewed the Nixon White House Tapes for public access. Not shy to state his opinions, Peter quickly found himself active in the NARA union and was first elected NARA union president at the age of 26. Soon thereafter, he found that solving the labor and employment problems of his fellow co-workers was his true passion and purpose. Because of that discovery, Peter enrolled in law school -- working at NARA by day and attending law school classes by night. Upon graduation from law school, there was no question that Peter would practice labor and employment law. As the founding member of the Jeffrey Law Group, PLLC, Peter continues to advocate for fairness in the workplace, with a focus on honest, straightforward advice, and efficient representation for busy clients.
