Jeff Shadwick's practice focuses primarily on commercial litigation. His practice began in 1981 handling trials and appeals arising out of the oil and gas industry. In the mid 1980's, Jeff developed a bankruptcy practice representing debtors, creditors, creditors' committees and trustees in Chapters 7, 11 and 12. He served on the panel of Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustees for the Southern District of Texas from 1990 to 1995.

In his bankruptcy practice, Jeff reorganized businesses as varied as a catfish farm and a casino cruise ship, and operated a downtown office building, scrap metal supplier and butter exporter all as either bankruptcy trustee or court appointed receiver. Throughout these years, Jeff litigated commercial issues. As a result of these experiences, he has gained vast exposure to every variety of business problem and the solutions to those problems whether found through negotiation or litigation. Jeff has worked on issues flowing from contractual disputes, employment issues, immigration, malpractice, insurance coverage, business torts and partnership disputes. Jeff litigates in state and federal court, including bankruptcy court, and assists clients with all manner of alternative forms of dispute resolution.
