Jeffrey R. Underhill


In Jeff’s civil litigation practice, his experience includes construction defect cases, mechanic’s lien claims, contract disputes, real estate matters and conflicts governed by the Minnesota Common Interest Ownership Act. Jeff has also litigated adversarial actions before the bankruptcy court. He enjoys dissecting and simplifying complex issues in order to make a clear and effective argument. His approach is to be reasonable, without being a pushover and he appreciates his ability to help clients during what is often a stressful time.

Jeff graduated magna cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law in 2010 where he was an editor for the William Mitchell Law Review, a semifinalist at the Ruby Vale Corporate Law Moot Court Competition in Delaware, and was awarded the CALI Award for receiving the highest grade in his U.C.C. Article 9: Secured Transactions class. Jeff is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association and a volunteer attorney for the Volunteer Lawyers Network. Prior to joining Morrison Sun in 2013, Jeff litigated construction, real estate and business disputes at Strobel & Hanson, PA and served as an intern for the Honorable William Howard in Minnesota’s Fourth Judicial District, Hennepin County. He is admitted to the bar in Minnesota, state and federal courts.

Jeff loves Minnesota summers, when he gets to spend time at the lake with family and his dog, Scarlett. Little-known facts about Jeff are that he plays drums in a country band, and gummy bears are his go-to treat. He describes his mother as the hardest working person he knows, and he’s very proud of his boat, a Boston Whaler, which is small but runs like a champ.
