Jeven has taken on complex cases throughout his career and has repeatedly proven he is up to the challenge.

Jeven is an experienced litigator who represents both plaintiffs and defendants.  He began his career at a national “big law” firm in Atlanta, Georgia focusing primarily on defending Fortune 500 and other large corporate clients in business litigation and regulatory disputes.  He then worked for a prominent plaintiffs’ mass tort and class action firm in Birmingham, Alabama prior to joining the boutique litigation firm of Deary Ray. 

His familiarity with working on either side of the docket in commercial disputes enables him to bring a unique perspective to his clients and help them take a strategically sound approach to resolving issues. While Jeven has extensive experience in litigating business torts, contract disputes, copyright infringement, consumer litigation, trade secret misappropriation, products liability and a wide variety of other complex commercial and business disputes, he has gained a national reputation as a leading advocate for over two decades for taxpayers in tax litigation.  Jeven is also a firm believer that clients should be proactive and can often save a tremendous amount of time and money by consulting litigators at the “deal” stage rather than waiting until a “post-deal” dispute arises. He regularly advises his business clients in mitigating the litigation risks of anticipated transactions.

Jeven has appeared in arbitrations and state and federal courts across the country and has been a featured speaker on the topics of contract law and arbitration.  Jeven’s broad base of experience allows him to effectively manage the most complex and challenging cases with an aggressive, but measured, style of advocacy.  Jeven prides himself on his tireless commitment to excellence and client satisfaction.

In his personal life, Jeven treasures time outdoors with his wife and four children and enjoying a wide variety of genres of music.  He can be spotted on occasion playing guitar or piano at music venues in his home state of Alabama and beyond.  Jeven is also a former national champion weightlifter and still competes at a national and international level.  Jeven and his family attend Trinity United Methodist Church in Homewood, Alabama where he has served on the board of the Trinity Child Development Center.
