Jacobs & Barney LLC
After 20 years of service as an officer and attorney in the United States Coast Guard, Mike entered private practice as a civil litigator in the Easton office of Miles & Stockbridge (Associate 1983-1986, Partner 1986-1994). On November 1, 1994, Mike struck out on his own, opening his own civil litigation firm in Easton. His daughter, Melanie Jacobs Barney, joined him the following spring. They became partners in the renamed firm of Jacobs & Barney in June 1996 and have practiced together since that time.
Mike is proud of the firm's high success rate and the quality of the legal services it provides. He values his many satisfied clients. "We help our clients negotiate the legal system effectively," said Mike.
"We've established some wonderful relationships with many fine people and businesses over the years. We have been privileged to be able to help them at a time that they really needed our help.”
