About Jacob

Learn Jacob’s areas of practice.

I've been licensed to practice law in the State of California since December 2014.  To date, I have exclusively represented injured plaintiffs and the vast majority of the cases I have worked on invovled physician or hospital negligence.  I find medicine fascinating and thus, I feel that the investigation into whether a provider met the standard of care required by his or her specialty is one of the most interesting aspects of my practice. I've worked extensively on cases with Daniel M. Hodes, partner at Hodes Milman, LLP, and thus, I've seen cases involving care across numerous medical specialties.  I've worked on cases involving surgical errors, pathology misreads, complications during labor and delivery, and missed diagnoses of disease.

Exceptional Attorney
Jacob Brender and colleagues were exceptional in advocating for our family and obtaining a substantial award for my brother's medical mal practice suit! Although, no amount of money can make up for this catastrophic event; having the resources now do enable him to have a better quality of life, as well as help us to care for him more adequately, hiring caregivers, obtaining specialized or modified equipment, and therapies. Needless to say, the process of the lawsuit itself was complicated; but throughout the entire case, Jacob thoroughly explained every step of the process, scenario, and any unknown terminology. He was patient and helpful when it came to me gathering information/documents for the case. He and his colleagues not only fought for us, but did so in a compassionate manner. They understood our concerns and needs, and were able to make that compelling argument on our behalf. I highly recommend Jacob, as you are in good hands with him. Thank you Jacob!

Relationship: Family member
"I met Jacob Brender after I referred a close family friend to his firm for a medical malpractice case, resulting in the death of a loved one. I attended multiple meetings with my family friend and Jacob, and I can say without question that Jacob is a superb attorney. Jacob's knowledge and expertise about esoteric medical conditions became immediately apparent. However, even more impressive than his knowledge was his compassion, patience, and care he showed the family who lost their loved one. Entrusting an attorney with such a sensitive, emotional and difficult case such as this was made so much easier knowing that Jacob was on the case. My family friend could reach Jacob any time of day, and he showed compassion and skill throughout the entire case. Jacob successfully and skillfully resolved the case in a tense mediation, obtaining a high settlement for his clients. I highly recommend Jacob for anyone looking for an intelligent, skilled, and compassionate med-mal attorney."
