Meet Jeffrey S. Krause, one of our newest additions! Jeff joined Affinity last month as Partner and will be an integral part of our Practice management, Document Management and Time, Billing and Accounting teams. He has been a legal technology consultant since 1998, most recently serving as Partner for Solfecta in the Milwaukee area. Jeff has known the other Affinity Partners and Consultants for years and we are thrilled to have him officially join the Affinity team.
With almost 20 years of legal technology consulting experience behind him, we asked Jeff why he loves what he does. “Being a legal technology consultant allows me to combine my law degree with my interest in technology and gadgets,” says Jeff. “At the same time, I am able to help other lawyers improve their practice.”
Jeff and his wife, Lesa, just celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. Together they have raised two children – daughter Kelly (20) and son Adam (18). Outside of the office, Jeff spends his seasons in Wisconsin this way: Fall – rooting for the Green Bay Packers; Winter – wishing it was Summer; Spring – getting ready for Summer; Summer – poolside with friends and family.
Jeff’s most memorable Affinity story so far happened last year. “I tubed down a frigid river in Utah with Katie Kennedy and Greg Bray,” shared Jeff. “Among the many memorable moments, Greg capsized and thought he was drowning until he stood up and realized that the water was only knee deep and he was wearing a life jacket. At least that’s how I remember it.”
Here is just a bit more about Jeff:
Favorite Vacation Spot: Europe, but really anywhere with a long and interesting history.
Book or movie I recommend and why: After all these years, my favorite movie is still Raiders of the Lost Ark. It has everything – action, adventure, comedy, history, exotic locations and even a little romance.
Favorite Food: Pizza is the best food ever invented.
Favorite Music: Something with an island vibe such as Reggie or beach country.
Hobbies/Interests: Reading, coin collecting.
