Selected to Rising Stars: 2014
Attorney Christopher I. Jacobs is an associate with Kalfus & Nachman PC law firm, which has offices located in Norfolk, Roanoke and Newport News, Virginia. A top-rated trial attorney with more than 17 years of legal experience, Mr. Jacobs provides unmatched representation and support to clients across the state who have suffered injuries or lost loved ones as a result of another party's negligent, careless or unlawful actions.
Mr. Jacobs’ desire to help plaintiff clients with their serious injury and wrongful death claims comes largely from his own personal experience of suffering an injury and having to resort to litigation to obtain his rightful compensation. As such, he devoted his practice to advocating on behalf of those suffering needlessly through no fault of their own, and he has secured numerous substantial settlements and verdicts for those adversely affected by motor vehicle accidents, dangerous property conditions and other preventable tragedies.
A highly competent and thorough lawyer, Mr. Jacobs has gained a reputation for completely analyzing each case he handles and preparing it as if it were to go to court. Working closely with his clients, he offers honest, straightforward advice regarding their options and helps them to fully understand the potential outcomes they can expect without making any baseless promises. Whether inside or outside of the courtroom, he does whatever he can to protect his clients' rights and help them obtain the maximum amount of finances they deserve.
A 1993 graduate of Old Dominion University, Mr. Jacobs attended Regent University's Robertson School of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor in 2002. Along with practicing before all Virginia state courts, he has also tried cases before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia and successfully argued cases before the Virginia Court of Appeals, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.
Active in his legal community, Mr. Jacobs is a member of the Virginia State Bar and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association as well as the Norfolk & Portsmouth Bar Association and the Virginia Beach Bar Association, among his other professional affiliations. Outside his legal practice, he is also active with the Virginia Beach Beaches and Waterways Commission, the Snowshoe Ski Patrol, the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad, and the Tidewater EMS Council.
