After graduating from Manhattan College in 2009, Jacob began his career as a Special Education Advocate & Paralegal. For seven years he worked for a reputable Manhattan-based law firm that concentrates on advocating for students with special needs. As an Advocate, Jacob would often attend Committee on Special Education (“CSE”) meetings alongside parents, providing them with assistance in the development of their children’s Individual Education Programs (“IEP”) and/or 504 Plans. When disputes arose with local school districts, Jacob assisted attorneys in all phases of the administrative due process procedure provided by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act ("IDEA"). This often involved impartial hearings and appeals to the State Review Officer.

In law school, Jacob was active in the interscholastic moot court program. He competed on the ABA Negotiations Team and ABA Client Counseling Team. He was an Editor on the Albany Government Law Review and held several notable internships he held included the New York State Education Department's Office of State Review, Albany Law School's Community Development Clinic, and Prisoners' Legal Services of Albany.

After law school, Jacob served as Counsel to the School Administrators' Association of New York State ("SAANYS"), working as a public-sector, labor-side Labor & Employment attorney. As Counsel, Jacob represented public school & BOCES administrators and civil service employees throughout the State of New York. He became well-versed in a wide range of employment related matters. Jacob is experienced in contract negotiations & collective bargaining, disciplinary matters, grievances, appeals to the Commissioner of Education, matters involving the Public Employment Relations Board (“PERB”), Article 78 proceedings and a wide range of other human resource and employment-related matters.
