Jeff Austin

attorney at law

Jeff joined Kisling, Nestico, and Redick in 2024 as a member of the litigation group in the Cleveland office. He was born and raised in Warren, Ohio. He attended Howland High School. He is a proud graduate of The Ohio State University achieving a B.A. in Political Science. Jeff’s law degree is from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. He has been married to his wife, Nikki, for 22 years. They have a daughter, Kennedy, who is also a proud Buckeye.

While Jeff has worked at a couple of law firms concentrating on Insurance Defense and Insurance Subrogation, he always also kept a healthy docket of personal injury cases. Even while working for an insurance company, Jeff’s passion was to help those injured, handling personal injury cases in his spare time. Jeff has extensive trial experience in all aspects of personal injury cases. He has also been a member of the Ohio Supreme Court’s mentoring program, which matches new lawyers with more experienced lawyers for a year-long mentorship.

Jeff enjoys cooking and spending time with his family and two chihuahuas, Peanut Butter and Jelly. He also enjoys working out and doing anything in the outdoors. He spends as much time as possible in the woodlots and farm fields of Ohio and Michigan. Jeff is also a big advocate of St. Jude’s Childrens’ Research Hospital.
