Jeff Sheloske grew up in a Christian family in Maine, and he enjoyed attending church on a regular basis. Ever since he was a young boy, he loved the Lord and had a passion for helping others , but he had no idea in his youth that Christ would lead him to use his passion in the legal field.
After Jeff graduated from high school, he attended Florida's University of Tampa where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminology. During his years there, Jeff was involved in the ARMY ROTC program, the Men's NCAA Division II Cross Country Varsity Team, and he was one of the founders of the Epsilon Zeta chapter of the Theta Chi Fraternity where he served as the Alumni Chair.
After graduating from college, Jeff investigated insurance claims involving Bodily Injury, Property Damage, Auto Theft, and Arson. This work was what ultimately kindled his desire to help the injured.
Jeff made the decision to go back to school to see how he could best focus on helping injured people. He attended Florida Coastal School of Law where he was inducted into the Phi Delta Phi Legal Honors Fraternity. He received Book Awards for the highest grade in Lawyering Process I and Lawyering Process II (Research and Writing), received the Outstanding Oral Advocate Award, and served as a Teacher's Assistant in Lawyering Process. He also served as Treasurer for the Christian Legal Society. While in law school, Jeff interned for law firms where he conducted extensive legal research for Personal Injury cases, and also drafted pleadings, demand letters, and firm correspondence.
Upon earning his Juris Doctorate degree, Jeff worked as a Licensed Bodily Injury Claim Representative and a Personal Injury Protection Litigation Claim Specialist handling claims in three states. There, he earned an Associate in Claims (AIC) designation and was selected to be part of a Special Investigation Unit (SIU) task force.
