Jeffrey D. Forbes

Jeff Forbes has been a member of the firm’s Local Government Practice Group since he joined Wood + Lamping in 2001 and currently leads both the Local Government and Real Estate Practice Groups.  Jeff has spent most of his practice representing local governmental bodies like cities, villages, and townships.  He currently serves as the appointed Law Director or Solicitor for the City of Mason, the Village of Waynesville, the Village of Greenhills, the Village of Terrace Park, and Symmes Township.

Jeff has embraced using an iPad and other technology as part of his daily law practice, making him accessible and more efficient for those clients who have adopted more modern technology in their operations.  For those clients who prefer to stick with the telephone, Jeff can do that too.  He strives to be responsive to client needs and will use technology to the extent that any client wants or needs.

Jeff lives in Montgomery with his wife, Susan, and their three children.
