Jeff was born and raised in Vermont and graduated from Burlington High School. After attending college in Maine and law school in Montana, Jeff clerked for the Montana Supreme Court before joining a small law firm in Missoula, Montana. There, Jeff represented individuals, small businesses, and landowners on a wide variety of legal issues (and took full advantage of the many outdoor opportunities Montana has to offer).
Jeff moved home to Burlington in 2011 and began working at one of the top workers’ compensation defense firms in Vermont. Jeff soon realized that representing insurance companies was not for him, however, and opened Dickson Law Office, PLLC, in January 2014. Jeff’s legal experience includes informal conferences and formal hearings before the Vermont Department of Labor, multiple trials in Montana and Vermont, and oral argument at the Vermont Supreme Court, where he prevailed on a significant workers’ compensation issue. Jeff takes pride in helping injured Vermonters with their workers’ compensation and personal injury claims, thereby ensuring that the power imbalance between insurance companies and claimants is more equal. In recognition of that good work, Jeff has been twice been named one of New England Super Lawyers Magazine‘s “Rising Stars” in the field of workers’ compensation, in both 2016 and 2017.
