Jeffrey Saxon

Jeffrey Saxon is a seasoned New York litigator with extensive experience appearing before both state and federal court.  Prior to joining MDF Law, Mr. Saxon spent the entirety of his career as a defense attorney.  This background makes him uniquely qualified to represent investors and other injured parties.  As Jeff explains it, “I spent most of my career defending claims on behalf of insurance companies.  I understand defense attorneys and the practicalities of results driven litigation.”  Jeffrey is a partner and handles complex commercial and civil litigation matters, including matters before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA. 

Immediately prior to joining MDF Law, Mr. Saxon served as Assistant General Counsel for the New York City Department of Correction.  In that role, he supervised an extremely diverse caseload of claims filed against the City of New York in federal and state court.  Mr. Saxon’s docket as Assistant General Counsel ranged from negligence claims to complex class actions.  Before working for the City of New York, he spent eight years as trial counsel defending hundreds of negligence, fraud and personal injury claims filed in state and federal court.  Over the years Mr. Saxon has handled all aspects of litigation, including motion practice and trials.   Most litigators, even senior ones, only handle discrete aspects of cases.  Mr. Saxon’s background is unique because he has handled dozens of cases from start to verdict.  As he explains it, “I think it’s important for attorneys to have practical experience handing all aspects of a case.  Ultimately, understanding how the system all works has made me a much better advocate.”

Jeffrey grew up in Long Island, New York, where he currently lives with his wife and two children.    He earned his law degree at the Hofstra University School of Law in 2007, where he also served as an associate editor of the Journal of International Business and Law. Prior to law school, Jeffrey graduated Binghamton University in 2004, where he earned his B.A. in both the Philosophy of Law and History, graduating as a member of the Alpha Theta Epsilon Chapter of the Phi Alpha Theta honors society.
