Bonnie Dombrowski is an expert at car accident and personal injury law. She works at Jacoby & Meyers Law Office. A few years after Leonard Jacoby and Stephen Meyers met as students in UCLA School of Law, on September 13, 1972, they started their first law office in Van Nuys.
Their belief was that quality legal services were out of reach for the middle class American. While the wealthy could afford bogus legal services and the poor could access free legal aid, the middle class was left with little options.
The first office location was at San Fernando Valley shopping Center. The founders chose the spot for its easy accessibility to the average American.
At their grand opening, the firm invited a consumer group in what resulted in a widespread coverage. Jacobs and Meyers incurred trouble with the California Bar Association. The bar challenged their approach as tantamount to advertising and a breach to the bar’s code of ethics. In a ruling against the bar code of ethics, the California Supreme court asserted that the rule was a breach to the right of free speech.
A day after this ruling, the firm had their first advert in the Los Angeles times. Few days later a Tv broadcast ad was ran for lawyers in the U.S. Jacobs Meyers has made huge investments in advertising thus earning a reputation as America Most Familiar Law Firm.
Jacob Meyers has impacted legal practice by providing accessibility to legal services for all.
