About Me

Jacob L. "Jake" Brooks has practiced law since 2005.  I currently focus on working with clients on estate and business planning, with an emphasis on innovative planning for clients with unique situations, planning for digital assets, and trust-centered planning.  In addition to representing individuals and business owners, I also have extensive experience working with lenders, creditors, and borrowers on transactional matters, ranging from the very simple to complex.
