Why did you become an attorney?

I became an attorney because I wanted to make a positive difference in the world. I believe the law can be a powerful tool, and I want to use our knowledge of the law to help those who have been unfairly wronged get the justice they deserve — and to make sure that those who sought to take advantage of others pay a price for their misconduct.

What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?

Prior to becoming an attorney, I was a trader on the International Equity Lending Desk of Paribas Capital Markets, where I worked with the bank’s London, Paris, and Singapore offices to manage a global, $1.2 billion portfolio of investments. This experience has provided me with valuable insight into financial institutions and the products they offer, which in turn has enabled me to successfully represent parties in investment disputes.

What makes your law firm unique?

Unlike some firms, we are not are not a litigation “mill.” Nor are we interested in pursuing a volume business. We only take on cases that we believe in and clients we think we can help, and then we throw ourselves into our cases 100%. As a result, we typically handle only a small number of cases at any one time. Because we are selective, we are able to provide our clients with highly personalized, concierge-level service on every case — no matter how big or how small.

Describe your personal interest and hobbies.

When I am not vigorously representing clients, I can be found in the kitchen trying out a new recipe (most recently it was Bo Ssam, which is basically a Korean version of carnitas); heading to the gym (unfortunately, the price of the Bo Ssam is many hours on the elliptical machine); working to improve my poker game (I recently attended a two-day advanced poker academy); or playing with my dog, Lexi (a very opinionated Chihuahua).

Summary of Firm

Jacobson Law P.A. represents investors in arbitrations (including FINRA, JAMS, and AAA) and state and federal court trials. If you or a loved one has been financially injured as a result of stock broker negligence or outright fraud, we can help you. If the investment you were sold turned out to be a Ponzi scheme, we can help you. If your stock broker recommended an unsuitable investment or strategy to you, over-concentrated your account in risky and speculative investments, made unauthorized trades in your account, excessively traded your account solely to earn commissions, or stole from you, we can help you.

We represent financial advisors in expungement matters, investment disputes, employment disputes (including harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, and promissory note disputes), regulatory investigations, and whistleblower cases. If you are a financial advisor and find yourself in need of legal counsel, we can help you.

We represent broker-dealers, registered investment advisors, family offices, and other financial companies and institutions in investment and employment disputes and regulatory inquiries, investigations, and examinations. We have extensive experience conducting internal investigations and developing successful strategies for resolving any potential issues that are uncovered.

We also represent individuals and companies in general commercial litigation matters, including contract disputes, partnership disputes, directors’ and officers’ liability (“D&O liability”), insurance coverage, employment disputes, non-compete and trade secret claims, debt collection matters, consumer fraud matters, and real estate litigation.

Our main office is located in West Palm Beach, FL. We are also available by appointment in Boca Raton, Vero Beach, and Fort Lauderdale.
