Attorney, Greenspoon Marder
Jeffrey Backman is an attorney at Greenspoon Marder and a member of the firm’s Complex Business Group in Fort Lauderdale. He was born and raised in South Florida and admitted to The Florida Bar in 2003. Prior to obtaining his law degree summa cum laude from Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center, Mr. Backman earned his B.A. in Criminal Justice from Florida Atlantic University.
Backman also strives to give back to the community through his involvement with Kids Can, a unique charity run by kids for kids. Kids Can’s mission is to unlock the potential in children by empowering them with the opportunity to give back to the community and enrich the lives of underprivileged children.
Backman’s two young daughters Allye, 3 and Blake, 6 serve on the Kids Can board of directors alongside his colleague’s son, Logan, 9. The board meets regularly at his law firm’s conference room. With a little guidance from their parents, the kids decide how to raise money, how to best use funds and determine their next volunteer project.
