When Harry Jacobs started Jacobs & Goodman with his wife, Lauren Goodman, in 1976, he set out to create a personal injury plaintiff’s law firm based on two principles. First, he believed attorneys should take a personal approach to clients, get to know them and the issues they’re facing, and do more than just represent their case – they should help them through the many procedural, legal, and medical obstacles that come with being injured due to someone else’s negligence. Second, he wanted his attorneys to be committed to fighting to the finish for their clients – that if they take a case, they see it through to the end and spare no expense to achieve the best outcome for the client.
For more than 30 years, Harry has been practicing law according to these principles, helping injured individuals seek just compensation from the insurance companies and corporations that try to limit or deny their claims. Along the way, he served as lead counsel on many seminal medical malpractice and product liability cases of the 80’s and 90’s, establishing new precedents for patient rights, consumer rights, and corporate responsibility.
An active member of the community, Harry has served as a City Commissioner of Altamont Springs, been the Lead Counsel of the Jewish Federation, and Chairman of the United Jewish Appeal.
