Jacob works with individual healthcare providers in a range of medical specialties, including ER providers, OB/GYNs, orthopedic surgeons, gastroenterologists, nurses, and physician’s assistants. He also has represented hospitals, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and urgent care facilities.

Jacob has an active practice covering all areas of civil litigation and spent the early portion of his career focusing on personal injury and medical malpractice. Merging his knowledge of the healthcare industry and litigation, Jacob has successfully briefed and argued motions to dismiss, motions to transfer venue, and motions for summary judgment. He also obtained favorable outcomes for his clients when assisting in mediations and settlement negotiations for medical malpractice cases.

Beginning in law school, Jacob was exposed early to researching medical malpractice case law. He also was involved in interviewing expert witnesses, drafting trial briefs and motions, and performing document review on medical case files.

While completing his undergraduate degree, Jacob was a member of the Richmond Spiders Football team and was named a team captain during his senior season. He brings the same level of hard work, energy, and attention to detail when representing his clients as he did when he played on the football field.
