Jeff Scarborough made his way to a career in law after standing at the intersection of legal and sales. The discourse and goals for each career path are similar – in the end, you want to get your client what they need to solve their problem. The difference between the two paths, and one area where Jeff truly shines, is the analytical skill needed to be a successful attorney. For clients at Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm, in Jeff they have a committed attorney whose greatest joy is the ability to assist people who are in the greatest need of help. “By far, the most rewarding part of my job is when my client is sincerely happy and appreciative at the end of their case,” said Scarborough.
Jeff appreciates and admires the greater opportunities he is exposed to in order to help those who may need it the most. At the start of his law career, Jeff initially thought he would practice in criminal defense, as he was passionate about helping those who were wrongfully convicted. He also practiced in employment law before pivoting to join Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm in 2017.
“When I decided to transition into practicing personal injury exclusively, I was lucky enough to secure an interview with Richard Harris Law Firm,” said Scarborough. “After the first interview, I knew this is where I wanted to be. There are many other great firms, but I don’t think there is a more complete firm in Nevada than Richard Harris Law Firm, with regard to its work environment, culture, attorneys, and staff.”
Jeff graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with a focus on International Relations. At UCLA, Jeff was a member of the Pre-Law Society and UCLA’s Ski Team. He then moved to Las Vegas and graduated from the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. During law school, Jeff also served as an Editor for the Nevada Law Journal, competed in moot court, and gained valuable experience interning for Justice Michael L. Douglas in the Supreme Court of Nevada. Upon graduation from law school, Jeff served as a law clerk to the Honorable Michael P. Villani of the Eighth Judicial District Court located in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Outside of the office, Jeff is a bit of a foodie, and takes advantage of Las Vegas’ top-tier dining options. He enjoys musical and sporting events, especially Los Angeles Dodgers games, and traveling. You can find Jeff at his happiest when he’s somewhere with a beach to relax or a mountain for snowboarding.
We’re certain Jeff would have been a great salesman, but we’re glad he became part of the RHLF team.
