Jerry was born in Flushing, NY and primarily was raised in the Midwestern cities of Indianapolis, IN and Chicago, IL with a splash of Dallas, Texas influence due to his parents relocating to the DFW area when he was 18 years old. As an undergraduate he developed an interest in pursuing a career as an attorney and this interest further developed when he took a class in business law.
Prior to attending law school Jerry worked for the City of Indianapolis in the Department of Metropolitan Development where he worked in the areas of Planning and with the Community Develpment Block Grant. These opportunities enabled him to understand the importance of listening and being responsive to community needs.
Jerry decided that he was going back to school to pursue a law degree. After completing his law degree and passing the Texas bar exam he worked contractually in Houstion, Texas on various document review projects and within Family IV-D Child Support courts as an appointed attorney for those that could not afford an attorney. Jerry then obtained a contractual position with Thomspson Reuters in Rochester, NY as a Legal Editor, however, Jerry did not stay in NewYork and relocated to Austin, TX where he worked in administrative law for the Texas Workforce Commission, Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners, and Texas Healh and Human Services-Office of Inspector General.
These positions further developed his advocacy skills and he has transferred the skills acquired from such positions to enthusiastically advocate on behalf of clients as an Associate Attorney with Glen Larson Law. Jerry believes in fighting for clients to ensure equitable outcomes. Jerry outside of legal practice enjoys engaging activities that promote a healthy mind and body. These activies include but are not limited to reading non-fiction books, writing poetry, vegan cooking, weightlifting, and participating in community service projects. The Christian faith is an important aspect of his life and he seeks to follow the counsel given in scripture to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God (see Micah 6:8 KJV).
