Missouri Lawyers Media Features Partner Matthew Jacober in Legal Limelight Profile
Missouri Lawyers Media featured partner Matthew Jacober in their most recent Legal Limelight profile, highlighting his practice, advice for young lawyers and recent pro bono accomplishments helping wrongfully convicted men and women.
On how he chose his career path: "Growing up, my mom and dad owned franchise restaurants after my dad was no longer able to be a mechanic due to an arm injury. I recall when big decisions needed to be made that impacted our family, the biggest question was always, 'What did the lawyer say?' As kids, most of us think our parents are infallible," Jacober said. "It stuck with me that the two people I trusted the most to take care of me turned to someone else to help with the biggest decisions in our lives. Once I understood that lawyers are, at their most basic, people who take on others’ problems to help make their lives better, I was convinced it was the right career for me."
"The best part of my practice is being part of a remarkable team. Lathrop GPM has so many talented people — partners, associates, counsel, paralegals and business professionals," Jacober said. "We have worked hard to keep the collegial atmosphere here, led mostly by our desire to make sure everyone’s voice is heard. This environment ensures we are working together across practice areas to achieve our clients’ goals."
