For almost 20 years, Jeff has helped our company develop subcontracts, negotiate settlement agreements, and represent us in both court and arbitration proceedings. Jeff always has our best interest in mind as he works diligently to understand the nuances of our problems and resolve them.  Jeff always gets his point across in a professional assertive manner without being overly aggressive. There was one particularly contentious and complex arbitration in which Jeff represented us that felt like a battle of David (Jeff and I) and Goliath, with the other side being represented by a team of lawyers and consultants. Due to Jeff’s knowledge of the law, understanding of construction, and ability to represent our position, we prevailed. What sets Jeff apart from other attorneys is his compassion and his analytical ability to absorb a large amount of information and use it when needed.

Robert Bamford, President of MAR-PAUL COMPANY INC.

Attorney Venzie is an exceptional communicator and strategist. I can always rely upon his realistic approach to breaking down a seemingly difficult situation and looking at it from every perspective. It is during this time that his knowledge and application of the law is unsurpassed.  Working with him is a true partnership.  Jeff never gives up.

Joe Gregory, President of JOHN J. GREGORY CO., INC. Mechanical Contractor

Jeff’s advice and guidance helps us tremendously. He is always a phone call or email away and comes up with efficient and effective strategies to collect our aging receivables. I definitely recommend Jeff to construction companies looking for a ‘go-to’ lawyer.

Lindsay M. Coulter, Accounts Receivable Manager of CM3 BUILDING SOLUTIONS, INC.

Jeff has helped us negotiate subcontracts from GCs and purchase orders from equipment suppliers to give us much more favorable terms. He has also collected money for us on projects without litigation and has guided and coached us through some difficult situations with our suppliers. I also greatly appreciate Jeff’s responsiveness and accessibility when we need him.

Andrea K. Irey, P.E., President of BERNER CONSTRUCTION, INC.

It has been rare in my life that I have needed the assistance of a lawyer. But, I have needed that assistance from time to time. It was never as pleasant as was Jeff’s representation. I want to thank Jeff for the professional service that he provided for Talley Brothers, Inc. His efforts to protect our interests, yet search for realistic solutions to difficult litigation, were exactly what we needed. I appreciate the thoughtful manner in which he approached our case. His knowledge of the construction industry, and relationships with industry leaders was a great help, as well. Thank you for all your help Jeff!

Scott Killen, President of TALLEY BROTHERS, INC.


As a physician, I have interacted with many attorneys over my career. When I needed legal expertise myself to deal with an insurance denial for a major home repair, three law firms did not want the  case due to the complexity and going against a major insurance company.  I’m so fortunate Jeff took my case. His expertise, availability, and communicative skills are exceptional. He has my highest recommendation.
