Jeffrey Duke

Jeffrey Duke brings a Southern influence to his practice.

A few years before winding up in a career as a chemist, he enrolled in the evening program at the St. Louis University School of Law and completed his degree in the top 25% of his class. After initially working at Lathrop & Gage for a few years, he settled into a mid-sized firm in Clayton where he was named partner in just a couple of years. He now practices for himself and his clients.


He graduated Magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Tennessee–Chattanooga and moved to the midwest in 1986 where he worked as a research chemist at Monsanto Company for fifteen years.

After deciding to change his career path he managed to complete his law degree while married to an employed spoud, working full time, and raising three children.
