Jake is a Past-President of the Brown County Bar Association, the past president of the Marquette University Law School Alumni Board and is also Past-President of the Outagamie County Bar Association.

Jake graduated in the top 10% of his class from Marquette Law School where he received CALI Awards for his academic excellence in The Civil Process, Trial Skills and Strategies, and Advanced Legal Research.  He graduated magna cum laude from St. Norbert College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and worked as a social studies teacher for the Oconto Falls School District prior to attending law school. Jake is a former high school football coach for Notre Dame Academy in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Jake became a personal injury attorney because his grandfather, Melvin Martin, was killed in an automobile accident when he was a young child, and the insurance company treated his grandmother poorly and ultimately took advantage of her. After what his grandmother went through, he wanted to help others avoid that misfortune.
