Jacob Charles Stidham

Managing Partner
Buford, Georgia

Jacob Stidham graduated from Birmingham Southern College with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology. While there he was admitted to both Psi Chi and Phi Alpha Theta honor societies. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Texas Tech University. Jacob also participated in numerous trial advocacy training programs to prepare him for the rigors of going to court and conducting trials.

While in Texas Jacob spent two years working in a criminal defense firm gaining invaluable trial experience in several high profile cases which prepared him to immediately go to work for his client's in Georgia. He has built upon that experience since his admission to practice in Georgia and continues to provide his client's with the best representation possible. Jacob brings a strong work ethic to the firm, fights aggressively for his client's rights, and strives to obtain the best results possible in each case he undertakes. Jacob is more than willing to take a case to trial if that is the best way to protect his client's rights, but he is equally willing to work for favorable outcomes outside the trial arena if that will better serve his client's ultimate goals.

When he is not in the office Jacob enjoys most any outdoor sports and spending time with his family.
