FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai today announced the appointment of Jeffrey Neumann as his
Acting Legal Advisor for wireless, public safety, and issues involving people with disabilities.
“With Jeff, our office gets two for the price of one. He is both a distinguished engineer and a
talented attorney. Jeff’s wealth of Commission experience and breadth of knowledge are
tremendous assets to our office,” said Commissioner Pai.
Jeffrey Neumann joins Commissioner Pai’s office on detail from the Engineering
Division of the Federal Communications Commission’s Media Bureau. A recipient of the
Commission’s Excellence in Engineering award, he has worked on numerous technical and
policy issues relating to cable, DBS, over-the-top, and broadcast television; video competition
and broadband services; and implementation of the Twenty-First Century Communications and
Video Accessibility Act of 2010.
Jeffrey received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the
University of Michigan, and his J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center.
