About Me

I graduated from American University in
Washington, D.C., with a major in finance and accounting in 1987.  I waited three years before entering
the Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles, receiving my Juris Doctor
in 1993. I worked briefly as a clerk in the United States Attorney’s Office in
Las Vegas and then joined my father Melvyn Jacoby’s firm in 1994. 


I am a member of the Suffolk County Bar
Association, the New York State Bar Association, and the National Association
of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.
