Growing up in a Messianic-Jewish home, Jacob developed a passion for helping others.  Understanding that God presents windows of opportunity in his life, Jacob is constantly finding new occasions to help others in, quite often, unexpected ways.  Jacob volunteered with Light Years IP where he had the privilege to assist the Maasai Tribe in intellectual property protection and monetization, preserving the integrity, richness, and respect of their culture.  Jacob also volunteered with equine training and therapy, where he both trained horses for police service and helped mentally and physically handicapped children and adults in therapeutic settings.  Subsequently, with his legal knowledge and passion for serving, Jacob joined the Entrepreneurial and Business Law Clinic as well as other local law firms, giving him invaluable experience in assisting newly-developed companies overcome legal hurdles.

 

While at Continental Enterprises, Jacob joined the team as both an investigator and supporting staff member.  Jacob trained in each department of the company and committed to familiarize himself with the ins-and-outs of intellectual property protection.  Jacob earned a promotion as Vice President of Continental where he oversaw operations, project development, and client relations.  

 

With a strong background in intellectual property, a niche for business development, and a passion for serving the local community, Jacob formed Mendelsohn & Associates, P.C.  In his ventures, Jacob is prepared to follow God in seizing opportunities and hopes to follow his dreams to better the business community by reaching new heights in intellectual property and business law by utilizing creative and cutting-edge solutions.
