Jacob Morse practices in the firm’s class action, complex litigation, and personal injury practice groups, working on cases pending around the United States in federal and state courts. He began his career at Wyrick Robbins Yates & Ponton LLP where he focused on commercial and business litigation. He then transitioned to working as a plaintiff’s lawyer concentrating on personal injury work, including wrongful death, catastrophic and workplace injury, and auto torts.
Jacob believes there is something special about taking up the task of fighting for the wronged or harmed. He works to stand up to corporations and special interests, and enjoys finding creative ways to protect the rights of consumers and those harmed or injured by no fault of their own.
As a law student, Jacob took an elective course titled “Complex Litigation” taught by Milberg’s co-founder, Dan Bryson. Jacob quickly became interested in the firms’ work pursuing interesting and complex cases across the country. Before joining the firm, he became close friends of members of the firm’s Raleigh office and stayed in touch with them on their cases, the causes they champion, and things they do in the community.
When he is not working on his cases, he continues to give back to legal community by coaching Campbell Law School’s Mock Trial teams and volunteering with the Wake County Bar Association’s (WCBA) Young Lawyers Division and on the North Carolina Mock Trial Program’s Board of Directors. He prides himself in having coached one regional and two national championship-winning teams (including the AAJ 2019 national championship in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). In 2023, he will serve as President of WCBA’s YLD.
Outside all things law, Jacob loves taking in concerts and shows. An avid beach goer, he loves the sand and sea most in the winter. His newfound hobby involves spoiling his retired racing Greyhound, Rosie.
