Jacob A. Weldon

Attorney

Jacob graduated with Honors from Lamar County High School in 2002. He went on to the University of Georgia in Athens to complete his undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice in 2005. In 2006, Jacob was commissioned as an Officer in the United States Marine Corps. Upon completion of Infantry and Intelligence Officer training, he deployed with the 2d Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion to Iraq in 2008 and Afghanistan in 2009.

In 2010, after completing his active service and achieving the rank of Captain, Jacob accepted a position with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in St. Louis, Missouri in order to be closer to his soon-to-be wife, Sarah. Shortly thereafter, he began attending evening classes at the Saint Louis University School of Law. After two years of work and part-time classes, Jacob left his position with NGA and transferred to the University of Georgia School of Law in order to pursue his degree full-time.

Jacob passed the Summer 2015 Georgia Bar Exam and has been a practicing member of Virgil L. Brown & Associates, LLC since.

Jake has quickly gained a mastery of what we do.  He is tenacious in his preparation and a zealous advocate for our clients.  What he brings to the law firm can not be overstated.  He questions everything and everyone.  Quite honestly he challenges even the most senior of us to be even better.
