After completing his military service, Jake worked in Collateral Recovery to repossess collateral for a variety of lenders. As the owner of a well-regarded collateral recovery firm in the Tampa Bay Area for ten years, Jake learned firsthand about the difficulties that often lead people to personal bankruptcy and business reorganization. When he decided to change his focus to the law, he knew that his knowledge in debt collection procedures and property repossession would give him a firm foundation to assist his clients in reclaiming their financial lives.

As a student, Jake was an Articles and Symposia Editor for the prestigious Stetson Law Review before obtaining his Jurist Doctor Magna Cum Laude. He was also a judicial intern at the United States Bankruptcy Court in Tampa, Florida.

Upon graduation, he quickly became a partner at Reissman and Blanchard of Tampa, Florida where he often “worked the other side of the street” to assist debtors in Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11 bankruptcies, collection proceedings, and foreclosures.

As a member in good standing of the Florida bar, Jake is licensed to practice in all Florida courts and in the US District Court, Middle District of Florida. He is the President of the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association, BNI Success Masters and a former member of the Rotary Club of St. Petersburg West.
