Mr. Jeffery graduated with a Doctor of Laws degree from Osgoode Hall Law School before being called to the Ontario Bar.
In his third year at law school, Mr. Jeffery spent an entire term studying an advanced program in immigration and refugee law, which gave him a better understanding of the cases he now deals with on a day-to-day basis.

When he returned to Canada, he spent several years focusing on refugee claims before his practice evolved into the full range of immigration matters.
