  • David Whalen

    I've known Jacob since he began as an immigration lawyer, we shared office space. He is a very go getter, very up on tech, harnessing the power of the internet more than anyone else I know, has refinement and keeps friends for long periods. An honorable gent. He also has an extremely thriving immigration law practice. The reason has to be happy clients. I have even referred a few cases to him beyond my capability.
