    Attorney Profile

    Experienced attorney Golda R. Jacob is the founder of the Houston law office of Golda R. Jacob & Associates PC. Ms. Jacob established her firm in 2003 with the goal of providing high-quality legal services to the residents of southeast Texas who face delicate family law matters, including high net worth divorces and contentious child custody cases. She is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Family law and is a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

    Ms. Jacob began her career by working for the New Jersey department of Human Services.  During her time there, she saw firsthand the trials that so often accompany divorce. She went on to co-found a business, but, after five years, she felt compelled to go to law school in hopes of being able to make a difference in the lives of those facing divorce and other family law issues.

    In 1992, she earned her Juris Doctor from South Texas College of Law and the State Bar of Texas admitted her that same year. The following year, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas also approved her to practice.

    Since beginning her legal career, Ms. Jacob has earned the respect of her clients, her peers and the local community. H-Texas Magazine listed her among the top family lawyers in Texas for six years in a row, and she has served on the advisory board of the Junior League of The Woodlands, Inc. twice. In addition, in recognition of her extensive knowledge in the area of family law, she is a regularly requested guest speaker on a number of family law topics.  Ms. Jacob is also on the Board of Directors of Nora's Home, a nonprofit organization offering housing to organ transplant recipients in the Houston, Texas medical center.
