Jeffrey J. Stein



Jeff Stein is an associate in Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s San Diego office, where he practices securities fraud litigation and other complex matters. He was a member of the litigation team that secured a historic recovery on behalf of Trump University students in two class actions against President Donald J. Trump. The settlement provides $25 million to approximately 7,000 consumers. This result means individual class members will be eligible for upwards of $35,000 in restitution. He represented the class on a pro bono basis.

Prior to joining the Firm, Stein focused on civil rights litigation, with special emphasis on the First, Fourth and Eighth Amendments. In this capacity, he helped his clients secure successful outcomes before the United States Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Stein earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from the University of Washington. He received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of San Diego School of Law, where he was a teacher’s assistant for an advanced writing course and a member of the national mock trial team.
