Jacob Swatley learned a few lessons in law school: How to write effectively. When to negotiate.
And, of course, to create a commanding presence in the courtroom. And he does this well for Harris Shelton. As an associate for the firm, Jacob deftly handles health care liability matters, as well as civil litigation, worker's compensation, business organization, and election law.

Jacob became interested in law early on in his studies at The University of Memphis, where he majored in political science. “I found the law appealing, and being in court and arguing cases a fascinating procession,” he says. He later pursued a law degree from The University of Mississippi, where he was staff editor of both the Mississippi Law Journal and the Federal Courts Law Review, among other pursuits.

 After two stints as a summer associate with Harris Shelton, the firm is proud to call Jacob one of their own.

A native Memphian, Jacob enjoys going to Memphis Tigers games and exploring the local food scene.
