He is a leading author in the fields of evidence, civil procedure and ethics. He has produced 16 major works and multiple articles in his capacity as writer and/or general editor, many of which are considered essential references by practitioners and are regularly relied on by the courts.

Jeffrey was specially commissioned to undertake this work by the Honourable the Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong himself. The Chief Justice considered it timely for the Legal Profession to have a book which would formulate a general code governing professional conduct and explain the fundamental principles governing ethical behaviour in everyday practice. As the immediate importance of this project required it to be completed as soon as possible, Jeffrey produced the manuscript within a year.
