Jeffrey Reisner
Class of 1995

A member of the OHS Class of 1995, Jeffrey Reisner credits the solid education he received in the Olean City School District with enabling him to pursue higher education and achieve his goals.  Being a three-sport athlete, and co-captain of the 1994 football championship team, he learned the value of being a team player. The opportunity to take Latin at OHS also provided a valuable foundation for his career in law.

After graduating from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a degree in criminal justice, he went on to attend Franklin Pierce Law Center at the University of New Hampshire, receiving his Juris Doctorate degree.

Jeffrey began his career as a municipal lawyer for the city of Syracuse after passing the New York State Bar in 2003.  Joining a private law firm, he helped defend volunteer fire and ambulance companies across New York State.  A former judge and assistant district attorney, upon returning to his hometown, he established his own law firm, specializing in elder law and life and legacy planning.

Jeffrey has helped educate the public through his radio program, “Legal Edge,” and has also conducted several money management seminars. He was instrumental in establishing a scholarship fund in honor of deceased classmates from the OHS Class of 1995, and works tirelessly to give back to his community.
