About me

I am a native San Antonian, my family has lived in the Hill Country since 1847, and I have a residence in Hondo. I love this part of the world. It is my honor and pleasure to fight to maintain what's so great here.


I was fortunate enough to earn my undergraduate degree from Stanford University and my law degree from Washington and Lee University School of Law.  After practicing at big firms for several years, I recently opened my own private practice.


I represent clients in a broad-range of areas from lawsuits to estate planning.  The majority of my work involves litigation, including, but not limited to, defending and prosecuting lawsuits between businesses, insurance coverage disputes, probate litigation, contested guardianships and confronting landlord-tenant issues.  In addition, I offer reduced rates to clients who need guidance, but not full representation, in small claims matters. 


Prospective clients may take advantage of a free thirty-minute consultation.  I look forward to hearing from you.

    I endorse this lawyer. I've been following attorney Jacoby's Avvo advice online for some time now and can say that his answers are always on point, direct, and accurate. If you have a legal question that could end up in a courtroom, or not, and his office is anywhere near you, I recommend him to you.
