About Attorney Jeff Young
attorney jeff youngJeff Young was born and raised in the Sarasota area, right here in Sarasota Memorial Hospital. He grew up in Venice and attending elementary, middle, and high school in Venice, having graduated from Venice High. Mr. Young moved to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida in 1996 obtaining a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. He received his law degree from Washburn University School of Law, a prestigious private school located in Topeka, Kansas.

Immediately upon graduating he returned to the Sarasota area that he knows and loves. Mr. Young joined to State attorneys office where he gained invaluable experience litigating hundreds of serious felony and misdemeanor cases. In his six years as a prosecutor in Sarasota and Manatee counties, Mr. Young has successfully handled and tried cases ranging from, drug trafficking, sexual battery, white collar crime, and violent crime to a broad spectrum of general DUI and drug offenses. That experience allowed him to become familiar with local rules, legal counsel, judicial process and law enforcement members and techniques.

Since leaving the State attorneys office and going into private practice, Mr. Young has gained experience in several areas of the law. He has successfully litigated numerous cases in family law, civil law, landlord tenant, contract disputes, bankruptcy, and many others. However his main area of practice remains criminal, as well as a significant amount of work in foreclosure defense.

For more than seven years now, he has been heavily engaged in litigating with banks in order to keep people in their homes. As a lifelong local resident, he understands the importance of home ownership and living in this area. He brings the same experience and dedication he brought to our criminal clients to those facing equally stressful monetary and family matters.

As someone who knows the area, and the people involved in the local legal system, Mr. Young is uniquely qualified to assist you in whatever your legal need.
