About Jacob

Learn Jacob’s areas of practice.

Being from Manchester, Tennessee, I've always enjoyed bringing down-home common-sense solutions to problems.


Thanks to a chemical engineering degree from Tennessee Tech, I can simplify big and complex numbers into bite-size pieces.


After earning my Law Degree from the University of St. Thomas School of Law, I learned while working with Rose Palermo and David Garrett that family law needs the same type of skill set I have: common sense solutions and the ability to take complex situations and solve them through bite-size pieces.


Using these skills, I try to educate my clients on thier legal options, and I look forward to representing them in their best direction.
