About Jacob

Learn Jacob’s areas of practice.

Mr. Stipp graduated in 2003 from Indiana University-Bloomington with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Criminal Justice. Following his undergraduate education, Mr. Stipp worked for the Social Security Administration for several years, where he adjudicated disability claims and received extensive training on medical injuries and their short and long-term effects on human functioning and one’s ability to work.  During his time with the SSA, he was also a union steward, handling grievances for state employees through mediation and arbitration.  Mr. Stipp's work as a union steward eventually peaked his preexisting interest in pursuing a career as an attorney.

Thereafter, Mr. Stipp graduated with his Juris Doctor from Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco, California in 2010.  While in law school, he realized he wanted to pursue a career as a plaintiff’s attorney, so that he could help individuals fight deep-pocketed corporations and insurance companies. 

That is why Mr. Stipp’s career has been devoted 100% to helping the injured seek justice in all types of personal injury, elder abuse/neglect and wrongful death cases.  He has secured millions of dollars in settlements for his clients.  He has also found a home in the courtroom as a trial attorney, having tried several cases to verdict.  In 2015 alone, he secured a seven figure jury verdict and also a six figure jury verdict in arguably one of the most conservative counties in California. 

 

In Mr. Stipp’s short career, he has already received several awards, including San Diego Daily Transcript Top Young Attorney 2013, San Diego Daily Transcript Top Young Attorney Nominee 2014 and Super Lawyers Rising Stars 2016 and 2017 (an honor bestowed on no more than 2.5% of attorneys in California).

Stipp made my case easy and did everything for me!
Stipp law firm is awesome. I was in a car accident in June. I did my research and decided to go with stipp law firm (I called maybe 15 lawyers). What made me decide to select stipp law, was when I called, they didn't want to talk about money. Every other lawyer I called hounded me about how much I could make, and there high percentage they would earn. Stipp law genuinely cared about my well being. They set up every thing for me, doctors appointments, mri's, consultations etc. Through the whole process they answered every question I had anytime I had it. They called and email me frequently to keep me updated. I never was put on hold when I called with questions. Every email I sent had a quick response. The insurance companies kept offering unfair payouts, but stipp law firm fought tooth and nail to get me what was fair. They are wonderful, honest, and hardworking. They did everything for me. Deffintly will use them again in the future

Grateful Client
Jakes management of my son's auto accident case was more than a client could ask for. From the initial consultation, dealing with the cumbersome medical billing and the final accident settlement aspects, Jake kept us fully apprised throughout the process and was very responsive to all our inquiries. Would definitely recommend his law firm.

The greater good
First off ,I would like to say I was referred to Jacob Stipp by an attorney that completely wasted a whole year of my life, lead me to believe that everything was being handled accordingly and that I was in good hands ,only to be told that he couldn't do my case ,and everything that he said he did was false . I'm a person who has never had any issues with the court system in my life , until being attacked and stabbed multiple times , upon our first meeting he was genuinely concerned of my well being ,and incredibly informative on how the whole process was going to play out , because I really had no clue , he was there for me every time I had a question and with what we were dealing with factors beyond our control ,he always was there for me and it would often surprise me that I had someone who was really there for me , after a very long dragged out case we were able to reach a settlement that was better than I expected ,in which I am super grateful for ,so now I'll be able to get my life back on track with great ease . And if you are looking for a legitimate personal injury attorney that you can count on , wether it calling you back or going over a hundred miles to represent you when you physically can't. I'd hate to ever be in a position to need legal representation ,but if that time does come I already know where I need to go and who I need to see , it was incredibly convenient for me to find out that Jacob had an office located in coastal Carlsbad placing me just minutes away

I couldn't have gotten through this without him!
From the first phone call Jacob helped calm my anxieties of all the stress we were going through. He was there with my family every step of the way, and went out of his way to make sure we had what we needed. Jacob kept us notified of what to expect and was able to provide us with additional services to help with the specifics of what we were dealing with. Everyone he recommended was also amazing and helpful! We were blessed to find Jacob. I highly recommend him!!

Thorough, compassionate attorney you can really work with and trust
Jacob worked with our family on an eldercare case, and was very understanding, patient and compassionate. He was knowledgeable, experienced, and someone we felt we could rely on and trust. He's very down to earth and easy to talk to, and knows how to get the job done in the best interest of his clients. Highly recommended.

Thank you, Jacob for your dedication to our case and fighting for our daughter.
Our 3 year old daughter suffered a severe dog bite to her face. We interviewed several lawyers and wanted the absolute best representation for her. Jacob came to the table with previous dog bite experience but what made him really stand out was his compassion for our family. His professionalism, communication and sensitivity throughout the case made a tough time bearable for our family. We knew that Jacob was not going to stop until we achieved the outcome we set out for.

Jacob had my best interest in mind!!
Jacob Layne Stipp is an absolute professional and was very helpful getting me a refund on some bad dental work. He fought hard in my corner to make sure my rights weren't violated and didn't back down when the insurance company tried to settle for less that what I had paid for the original procedure. I am very grateful for his services and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for their fair day in court.

Awesome Service!!!
I don't know where to begin with. I was involved in a car accident on 09/22/2014, and was badly injured. I called Jacob's firm at the time for some consultation and was immediately impressed by the level of knowledge and experience that Jacob had. He guided me through the whole process and was there through every turn for me and my family. I was updated immediately after every major event that took place regarding the insurance claim. All in all he was able to help us out with his experience and endless knowledge about his field, and we were able to win the insurance claim that we deserved. Hats off to his extremely friendly nature and his ability to understand and help his clients through every single step in the process. I would recommend Jacob to every single person who is involved in a car injury and further more. Five star review from my family for Jacob and his staff.

Outstanding Attorney
I am extremely grateful to Jake. He brought closure to my family in a very difficult time. He handled my Grandmother's case with dignity and compassion. He treats his clients with respect and is in constant communication with them. He is efficient and a professional. He made an emotional and painful process bearable. Jake was always available to answer questions and is extremely knowledgeable in elder abuse cases. He made it so that the nursing home would take responsibility for their actions. I was very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Jake.

Motorcycle Accident
I was hit on the freeway while riding my motorcycle. I reached out to Jacob shortly after, he took on my case and led me in the right direction. He took care of all the administrative issues and even referred me to a specialty doctor. If I would have settled my case with the insurance alone I would have received a fraction of what he was able to get me. Highly recommend him, already referred him to a couple of friends.

Would do business again and highly recommendable
Let me start off by saying there was a consultation in hiring Mr. Stipp for my automobile accident. I was referred to him by my sister who had a prior accident and hired Jacob Stipp. I contacted Mr. Stipp after speaking with my sister and boy was it the best thing to do in getting my accident all sorted out going forward with taking on my case. It took a little more time due to some bumps in the rode on behalf of at fault parties insurance and dealing with my personal insurance, never the less Mr. Stipp was able to succeed for me in every aspect that was approached on his behalf in his expertise. He and I always kept a close line of communication and was available at anytime I contacted his office, answered any and all concerns that arise during review processes. Mr. Stipp was very thorough in our investigations and always informative of anything not going normal with the case. The outcome and overall experience in hiring Mr. Stipp was superb and the right choice to make for someone like me who had never had to hire representation for any matter in my life, I mean till this day I have never met Mr. Stipp in person, all was handled via email, pdf files, signatures needed etc. With my representation being in Carlsbad and me living in city of Los Angeles was not even something I considered to be a bad thing in being recommended thru my sister who had done similar business with Jacob Stipp. This accident I experienced really took a toe on me physically and mentally but knowing I had someone in my corner up to bat for me all made it more comfortable and a relief with stress compiling during this time of my life, Thank You Mr. Jacob L. Stipp, my awesome attorney.

Real professional & caring attorney.
Mr. Stipp handled my case with genuine care right off the bat. He made sure I received the proper treatment to physically recover, and subsequently, the fair compensation. He is responsive, and made the entire ordeal a seamless one.

The best lawyer you could ask for!
Jacob Stipp sets the bar unattainably high when it comes to professionalism and ethics.. Jake is a perfectionist at work and wins! He showed me that there are lawyers out there that you can really trust and depend on when things go terribly wrong. He has made the legal process painless and I truly feel that I am in the most capable of hands. Unlike the stereotypical lawyer, Jake really does care and he will fight for you. You won't be disappointed.

Outstanding!
I was involved in a motorcycle wreck in 2015 and was quickly connected with Jacob Stipp through a friend of mine. The first thing I noticed about Jake was how concerned he was about my health. He told me that the paperwork will always be there but first and foremost my most important job was to get back to full strength. He handled absolutely everything when it came to the case. I am the kind of guy who likes to know what is happening at every step of the process and the great part about Jake was that he was only a call or email away. His team would do periodic check ins to see how I was feeling and they would answer any and all of my questions extremely quickly. I would recommend Jacob Stipp to any and all of my friends and family if something ever happened to them. I really hope I never get into a wreck and need Jake's services again, but if I do, I know without a doubt I will call Jacob Stipp again. I had enough to worry about after my accident and no one knew that more than Jake. So if you want a guy who will take the pain out of that part of the process, call Jacob Stipp.

without a doubt, Jake is the guy to contact!
Jake Stipp assisted me along with a few other family members on an incident that resulted in a law suit. He was very professional throughout the entire process. He made all of us feel safe, secure & justified. No question was a dumb question for Jake and that's what I liked the most. I always refer Jake to anyone I know that needs any legal advice, because that's how much I trust him. I know if it's something that he cannot help out with, I know he'll find the right person for the job! Please reach out to him with any questions or concerns you may have....

Great Attorney
Jake knowledge and experience turned a very difficult process into a bearable one. He made it so that the nursing home and hospital had to finally provide answers that were previously requested by my family for a year to no avail about my Grandmother's death. Jake was relentless in holding the hospital and the insurance company responsible which was vital in the closure my family or any family in that situation will need. He did this while effectively communicating with my family about the very complicated legal process. He was only our Attorney for the short duration of the case but he is considered family now.
