About Jacob:

As an associate litigation attorney, I work closely with Buckingham partners to support a wide client base, including, individuals and businesses, throughout Northeast Ohio.

I have a special appreciation for Northeast Ohio and the values that this region espouses. I grew up with two parents who modeled what it means to be hardworking, dedicated and passionate. I bring that same attitude to all aspects of my life, but it is especially evident in my work and through my dutiful representation of clients.

I was always fascinated about the complex way in which the law interacts with our lives. My experiences, including externing for a Federal Judge, allowed me to become familiar with a wide range of issues and develop skills to effectively support my clients. These experiences also honed my fascination with the law into a passion for solving the complex puzzles legal problems present in ways that best advocate for my clients.
