John Jeffries’ practice is concentrated on general liability defense, arson and insurance fraud, premises liability, products liability, professional liability, automobile negligence, construction litigation, arbitration and mediation, first party insurance disputes, bad faith and UM/UIM claims. John has focused on litigation for over 25 years, representing carriers and civil defendants.

In today’s business world, clients often need and expect a thorough and accurate answer or solution quickly. John strives to achieve this by being responsive to his clients and treats each case with the utmost attention and priority. His clients have come to value his sound legal advice, strategy and honest answers based largely on his many years of experience in the insurance industry. Clients know that disputes are inevitable and that they can rely upon John to fiercely defend and represent their interests in the courtroom when circumstances dictate. John is a frequent speaker for a number of conferences and seminars, including the North Carolina Insurance Crime Information Exchange’s (NCICIE) annual training conference, of which he has been a member for over 25 years.

When he’s away from MGC, John treasures spending time with his wife at their favorite beach, and trying to keep up with their three almost grown children (a PhD candidate in Chicago, an advertising sales rep for the world’s most popular app and an aspiring baseball player in high school). John loves following UNC sports and serving his community through  youth athletics as the long-time commissioner of the South Park Youth Association baseball league in Charlotte.
