Jacobs & Jacobs
1975 - 1977
Bruce has practiced law in New Haven for more than 30 years. Over that period he has represented thousands of people who were injured in automobile accidents, through medical malpractice or as a result of an unsafe condition or product.
Many of Bruce's clients are referred by other lawyers, who know the success he has had in trying and settling major cases. He is especially proud of the fact that he has had a number of clients referred to him by judges, doctors who have testified in his cases and even people who have sat as jurors on one of his cases. However, what gives him the most satisfaction are the clients who are referred by former clients who appreciate the hard work Bruce has done on their behalf and the results he obtained.
In 1982, Bruce and his father Stanley founded the firm of Jacobs & Jacobs in order to focus solely on the representation of injured people. Stanley and Bruce were determined to create a family firm with an atmosphere in which clients of all backgrounds would feel comfortable and valued. Jacobs & Jacobs was founded on the philosophy that every client is important no matter what their injury is. That philosophy has translated into successful results, not just in a record of verdicts and settlements that is staggering for a small family firm, but in terms of satisfied clients who feel they were treated like family.
Bruce is a member of the New Haven Bar Association, the American Association for Justice and the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association where he is a member of the Medical Malpractice Committee.
Bruce is also proud of his community volunteer work. He is currently President of the Greater New Haven JCC, where he is the first person to hold that position twice. He is a former President of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and former member of the Committee of Trustees at The Hopkins School.
