Jeffry Baughman Jeff is the founder and CEO of Spartan Law Group and completed theTough Mudder with a team of clients and friends. Jeff was a squad leader in the U.S. Army light infantry both stateside and overseas where he learned not everything is black and white and to get through the "Gray Area" you need a team, a code, and sometimes a sense of humor in the face of gravity.

Starting out as a lawyer, Jeff realized there was a severe communication gap between clients and their lawyers and founded Spartan Law Group to overcome this gap. Jeff is an award-winning bad golfer, but uses that time to get to know his clients and shapes his practice to best fit each client's needs. Jeff also strives to be more than someone to call when there is a problem. He uses his resources and network to help clients with their non-legal or personal needs to keep their venture growing.

As a member of the 10th Mountain Division (LI), Jeff did what it took to achieve the assigned mission and served with those who truly know what it is like to live above the standard. This mission-first focus and code forms the basis of his relationship with clients and his firm. Whether it is getting back what is owed to you or protecting you from others, Jeff stands ready for you.
