After 15 years with the paper company, Mr. Jeffrey set off on his own, syndicating real estate tax shelters. When changes in the tax law caused a severe depression in the real estate industry, he joined a medium sized national manufacturer as chief financial officer. Six years later, that company was sold and Mr. Jeffrey organized Jeffrey & Company, a public accounting firm that provides services to businesses and individuals, including corporate and personal income taxes, forensic accounting, and the auditing of small and medium sized businesses.
