In 1977, Mr. Jacobs became admitted to practice in Connecticut as well as before the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut.

Mr. Jacobs has deservedly earned a great deal of respect from his fellow members of the bar for his successful representation of people who have been harmed due to the negligence or recklessness of other parties. He has been able to obtain millions of dollars on their behalf through jury awards as well as settlements that he has negotiated out of court with defendants and their liability insurance providers. The types of cases that Mr. Jacobs has worked on have arisen out of incidents involving medical malpractice, truck and other motor vehicle crashes, animal attacks, defective products, and premises liability claims, including slips, falls and inadequate security. His successful track record has led to his receipt of an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell along with numerous other honors and awards.

Mr. Jacobs attended Washington University in St. Louis as an undergraduate, where he majored in economics and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1974. He chose to remain on campus for his legal education at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, graduating with his Juris Doctor in 1977. His professional affiliations include the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and the New Haven County Bar Association.
