The State Bar of Michigan’s site www.michbar.org commented in 2007:
“Jeffrey Nutt’s legal career took him to Washington, D.C., where he served as a U.S. Supreme Court intern, and England, where he spent a year studying international law at Oxford University on a Fulbright Scholarship. But it ultimately led him back to his home state and a lengthy tenure with Neighborhood Legal Services Michigan, where countless [area] residents benefited from his commitment to public service.
“Nutt started at what was then called Wayne County Neighborhood Legal Services in 1990 as a staff attorney, and two years later became the first staff attorney at the agency’s new law center specializing in federal court and administrative law cases. In 1994, he helped found the Child and Family Advocacy Center, the Detroit area’s first full-service law office for children and their families.
“In a landmark case, Nutt and attorneys for the Children’s Law Center successfully sued four convicted drug dealers on behalf of five family members of a homicide victim in 1997. The decision was the nation’s first successful test case under a state Drug Dealer Liability Act.
“Nutt was named Neighborhood Legal Services Michigan executive director in 2001 and, in that role, worked to stabilize the agency’s finances and expanded its law-related education programs into 60 Detroit-area schools. He left that post earlier this year to go into private practice.”
Mr. Nutt is a zealous business, family and community advocate.
Successful at winning more than $10,000,000.00 in competitive grants and contracts since 2001, he is a past university honor society president.
Mr. Nutt earned his bachelors degree from Oral Roberts University and his juris doctor degree from American University Law School.
His academic distinctions also include a Goldman Sachs Scholarship for Temple University's Summer Session in Law at Tel Aviv University.
He is married to a Detroit DCHC OB/GYN who makes her deliveries at Michigan's women's hospital having the highest number of high-risk pregnancies and the lowest infant mortality rate. A published bilingual physician, Mayra Troya-Nutt, M.D. co-founded with Mr. Nutt and other stakeholders One University of the Americas Fund in 2008. Our Medical Profession Background and our management team at Jeffrey G. Nutt & Associates and United University extends beyond our legal experts... to the medical field. We have a unique international perspective and resource base thanks to the wife of Jeffrey G. Nutt, Dr. Mayra Troya-Nutt.
Mr. Nutt is the son of Helen Donna Jean and Thomas Joseph Nutt, Sr., recognized by Fortune Magazine as a Second Generation Ford Motor Company "Whiz Kid".
