Jacob says, “I became a lawyer because the law is a constantly evolving landscape and the profession is rewarding to those who can come up with creative solutions for their clients. I enjoy the ability to build connections with clients as well as the opportunity to collaborate professionally with colleagues.”
Jacob participated in a prestigious clerkship during law school when he clerked for the Honorable Judge Irv Maze of the Kentucky Court of Appeals. When he wasn’t clerking for the appellate court, he was doing so for a well-known general litigation firm in Shelbyville, Kentucky. This training earned Jacob and his moot court team a first runner up placement for Best Team and Best Brief in the 2020 Ellen A. (Nell) Hennessy Employee Benefits Moot Court Competition at The Catholic University of America in 2020. Upon graduating from law school, he worked as a staff attorney for the Honorable Judge Samuel Todd Spalding in Kentucky’s 11th Judicial Circuit. These various clerkships allowed Jacob to work on a variety of legal matters involving many different areas of law. He also gained invaluable experience in these clerkships from both the practitioner’s perspective as well as the judiciary’s. As Jacob says about these experiences, “I was very lucky to learn first-hand what works with judges and what doesn’t and why. I harness those lessons learned in my law practice to best advantage my clients.”
Now Jacob focuses his practice on health subrogation and ERISA-related matters as well as general civil litigation. He is also a member of the Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyers Division.
