"Jeff Rush is the preferred lending lawyer for the largest banks in Cincinnati. Jeff and his associates represent the bank on 90% of my (and my colleagues') transactions. Jeff has more experience than 99% of the lawyers in the market place. This leads to reasonable hours billed. Jeff is the requested lender counsel by most of my clients because he has worked with them on many deals so he understands their corporate structure and loans. If I have questions about complex structures or something I have not seen before, Jeff is my go-to guy."
