About Jacob

Learn Jacob’s areas of practice.

Jacob H. Thomas is originally from the Piney Hills of North Louisiana, known for producing great litigators such as Huey P. Long as well as several other notable statesmen on the both the federal and state levels. Jake is a graduate of Jonesboro-Hodge High School and Northwestern State University where he was a member of the Theta Mu chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, the NSU Presidential Leadership Program, and the InterFraternity Council serving as Vice President. He is a graduate of Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge, LA. Jake was privileged to serve the Second Circuit Court of Appeals as the personal law clerk for Judge Harmon Drew II. Jake followed this success by accepting an invitation to work with the Louisiana Legislature, specifically the Speaker of the House's office. Jake’s governmental experience also extends to the Department of Insurance where he worked directly under the Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, and Executive Legal Counsel. Jake’s public service experience affords him a unique legal perspective from having pro-actively worked to create the law in the Speaker's office, to helping regulate the vast Louisiana Insurance industry with the Dept. of Insurance, to finally and most importantly litigating and interpreting the law on behalf of the people of Louisiana. He brings that small town attention to detail, intimacy, and accessibility to his clients that's lacking in many attorneys today while offering premier level litigation services. This commitment to the hard working people of Louisiana is evidenced by his decision to leave public-sector work and apply his skill-set in the Courtroom where he handles cases dealing with complex personal injury, motor vehicle collisions, and family law matters. His success is a direct result of his articulate & impassioned advocacy and is further measured by the manner in which he provides each client the respect and attention they deserve. "We are given an awesome responsibility when we are chosen to be a person's legal representative, that is something I keep at the forefront of my mind and take very seriously when advocating for my clients." - Jake
