About Batchelor
Education is the Key

Jeff continues to be grateful for the mentoring he received as a young lawyer, from his late brother DeMar Batchelor and the late James H. Clarke, in particular. As his mentors, Jim, a Rhodes Scholar, and DeMar, the consummate counselor, encouraged Jeff to write and lecture on subjects he knew something about, so that others might learn from both his successes and mistakes.

The following is a sampling of Jeff's educational offerings, both written and oral, over three decades.
