Growing Up on a Fishing Boat While other kids went on vacation growing up, Jacob headed to the water to fish and farm oysters. Jacob grew up on the Westbank and worked for his dad, a commercial fisherman. After Jacob graduated high school, he became the first person in his family to graduate from college and law school. Today he lives on the Westbank and enjoys spending time with his children. Impacting Lives Through the Law After law school, Jacob practiced many types of law but kept coming back to personal injury. He enjoyed helping people and having the opportunity to impact their lives for the better. Today, he enjoys connecting with his clients. Most have never worked with an attorney, so he takes great pride in helping them navigate the legal process and make good decisions. Keeping You Informed Jacob prides himself on keeping clients informed throughout the legal process and teaching them along the way. Clients often remark on how well he listens and explains their situation in a way they can understand. Some are surprised to learn how often he calls to check in, how he actually returns phone calls, and that he cares about what they have to say. Dedicated to Helping People Jacob is dedicated to his clients. He believes in treating people with respect and is dedicated to seeing things through. Because of this dedication, most of his clients come from referrals - from people who have worked with him before and trust him enough to tell a friend.
