In his capacity as an Assistant District Attorney, Jake has successfully tried cases as the lead counsel in a wide range of felony offenses such as drug possession, kidnapping, aggravated assault, armed robbery, and murder. As a prosecutor, Jake has the opportunity to train with law enforcement. Jake’s training includes the Standard Field Sobriety Test (evaluation of DUI drivers) and ARIDE (Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement). Jake was often a guest instructor at the Gwinnett county police academy and taught police recruits about criminal law and procedures. These experiences present Jake with an insider perspective of how law enforcement officers investigate a case and how prosecutors evaluate cases. Jake’s unique expertise allows him to pinpoint the strength and weaknesses of a case. With his extensive courtroom experience, Jake is able to comfortably guide his client through the complicated maze of the legal system. Jake handles every case as if his client’s position will be presented to a jury. He is thoroughly prepared to obtain the best result for his clients regardless of the nature of the matter. If the case cannot be resolved amicably, Jake is prepared to go to court and fight for his client to get the best result the law provides. While not in the office or court, Jake enjoys culinary destinations and is hoping to curate a “life course menu.”
