ONDA Elevates Family Lawyer Jacob Jeffries to Partner

New partner position adds to firm’s Frisco office leadership 


DALLAS – Dallas-based Orsinger, Nelson, Downing & Anderson, LLP (ONDA) has promoted family lawyer Jacob Jeffries to partner, a transition that bolsters the firm’s Frisco office, effective January 2024.  


“Jacob is a true leader within the firm and has demonstrated a strong commitment to his clients and his practice,” said managing partner Scott Downing. “He has a very technical mind, and our entire team has benefitted from his expertise since he joined the firm. We are very fortunate to have him in our corner.” 


Board certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Mr. Jeffries has deep experience in a range of family law matters, such as divorce, child custody and support, property division, appeals, enforcements and others. In nearly 10 years practicing law, Mr. Jeffries has focused on matters that are rarely litigated or that invoke obscure issues from the Texas Family Code. 


“He understands our values and is very pragmatic in his approach, while maintaining a certain level of compassion that our clients often need,” said name partner Jeff Anderson of the firm’s Frisco office. “I am very proud to welcome Jacob as a partner and we are excited for the future of our firm.”  


Mr. Jeffries was selected to The Best Lawyers in America’s Ones to Watch listing in 2023 and 2024. He has also earned a spot on Thomson Reuters’ Texas Rising Stars list each year since 2018 and was named to the Lawdragon 500 Leading Family Lawyers listing for 2024. Mr. Jeffries is also a member of the Texas Young Lawyers Association. 

While earning his J.D. from Baylor University, Mr. Jeffries won the prestigious Strasburger & Price Moot Court Competition. He is also a recipient of the “Relief Man Award” from the Denton County Alternative Dispute Resolution Program.
