About Jacob

Learn Jacob’s areas of practice.

Jake is a partner at the firm and practices out of the Appleton Office.  He also handles cases out of the Green Bay Office. Jake has successfully tried personal injury cases in Outagamie, Brown and Winnebago Counties.

Jake has been named one of the top personal injury attorneys in the State of Wisconsin by Milwaukee Magazine since 2006. He also holds an AV peer rating (the highest rating possible) by Martindale-Hubbell and was named “Top 50 Attorneys in Wisconsin” in 2014 by Milwaukee Magazine’s Super Lawyer Publication.

Jake is the President of the Brown County Bar Association (2018), the President-Elect of the Marquette University Law School Alumni Board and is a Past-President of the Outagamie County Bar Association.

Jake graduated in the top 10% of his class from Marquette Law School where he received CALI Awards for his academic excellence in The Civil Process, Trial Skills and Strategies, and Advanced Legal Research.  He graduated magna cum laude from St. Norbert College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and worked as a social studies teacher for the Oconto Falls School District prior to attending law school.  Jake is a former high school football coach for Notre Dame Academy in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Jake became a personal injury attorney because his grandfather, Melvin Martin, was killed in an automobile accident when he was a young child, and the insurance company treated his grandmother poorly and ultimately took advantage of her. After what his grandmother went through, he wanted to help others avoid that misfortune.

Best Personal Injury Lawyer
Attorney Reis represented me, on behalf of my husband that was killed in a motorcycle accident. He went above beyond to get a settlement that was more than I expected. He is professional, thorough, highly knowledgeable and a very compassionate person. He always kept me informed and I highly recommend Jake to handle your case.

Review
There are not enough characters allowed in this comment box to express my sincere gratitude for Attorney Reis and Habush Habush & Rottier. In 2015, I was in a serious car accident resulting in a very chaotic and life changing event. Attorney Reis made the process of my case as simple as possible and there were never any questions left unanswered. From the time I first met Attorney Reis to the final closing of my case, I had the upmost confidence we would put up a great fight for what’s right! I always felt very respected and welcomed at Habush Habush & Rottier and Attorney Reis always made me feel that all of his cases were equally important. I never imagined there would be any positive outcomes of such a negative experience and I’m beyond thankful and grateful for Attorney Reis and Habush Habush & Rottier. If anyone is checking out reviews for the best Attorney/Law Firm to handle your case, I would strongly encourage and recommend you to contact Attorney Jake Reis/Habush Habush & Rottier.

Straight shooter. Gets the job done and done well.
We had attorney Reis represent us in a car accident case. We were well and timely informed, no false promises or speculations. We were very grateful and empowered to have attorney Reis on our side during deposition and mediation. It was very clear that the other side was not excited to see attorney Reis representing us in our case. In short, if you want job done and done right - Attorney Jacob Reis is your best representation in the NE Wisconsin.

Very Satisfied Client
I recently switched law firms as a result of being left in the dark and unsure of how my case was truly being handled. I met with Jacob Reis and was really taken by surprise. Everything he had explained to me and how he answered my questions was really refreshing. Things he told me and explained to me actually happened. I was still suffering from my accident and Jacob referred me to a doctor who was able to help get me additional relief. My case was handled in a professional and confidential manner. I would recommend Jacob Reis to other individuals who were or are suffering from a personal injury. He gave me hope when I felt the other firm didn't really care about my case. Jacob settled my case quickly and I am now able to move on with my life knowing he had my best interest at heart. Thanks, Jacob Reis for everything!

Great Attonery
Jacob was referred to us by another attorney that did not handle auto accidents. He was great in explaining what he could do and that is what he did. I was happy to see the settlement out of court. I have recommended him to another family I know that had a auto accident and will continue to refer him.

personal injury very pleased
Jacob was very helpful and honest about my case right from the first time we met. He explained what would probably happen during the process of resolving my case. Everything happened just the way he said it would.We settled our case before it went to trial.I would recomend him to anyone in need of a attorney.

Mr. Reis is a man I could trust during a time that I felt scared and unsure about my legal rights. He was concerned with my personal well-being and fought to get me the best settlement for my case. I have recommended him to my friends and family, because I believe he is a trustworthy and dependable lawyer!
