Judge Jeffrey J. Saffold

Judge Jeffrey P. Saffold may be one of our newest Judges, but he is no stranger to the Justice Center.  As a respected trial attorney, Judge Saffold has spent considerable time in front of the Bench. Now, he sits behind it.

Judge Saffold joined the Bench on Friday, January 6, 2023. He was elected in November 2022 to serve a six-year term.

Judge Saffold received his bachelor's degree from Cleveland State University, and his law degree from the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law in 1995.

If his name sounds familiar, Judge Saffold is the son of Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold, who has been on our Bench since 1995.

Judge Saffold is one of four African American Judges currently on the Common Pleas General Division Bench, which also includes Judge Deborah Turner and Judge Cassandra Collier-Williams.
