A long-time Santa Barbara resident, Jack brings to HLG a unique resume as a local businessman now engaged in the full scope of family law.
Jack attended two tours at the University of California at Santa Barbara. In 2002 he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and history. He dove straight into business, co-founding and successfully exiting Giant’s Foot Surf in Nicaragua. He went on to consult for Ecometriks LLC (now Solar Census), serve as Board Treasurer for the Fund for Santa Barbara, and work as a registered Investment Advisor Representative and Research & Advocacy Director for Harrington Investments, Inc.
Nearly ten years later, Jack attained a Master of Arts at UCSB in Global Political Economy. He accomplished this while serving as the Regional Coordinator for Toniic Impact Investor Network. Afterward, he founded OurTown Property Management in Santa Barbara.
During and following law school at the Santa Barbara and Ventura Colleges of Law (graduating in 2020), Jack clerked and then practiced law at the Santa Barbara offices of the national powerhouse, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck. Seeking opportunities toward “doing good” for individuals and families in family law, he changed gears by joining a Ventura family law firm before coming to HLG.
Jack enjoys speaking Spanish whenever the occasion presents. In his spare time, you are likely to spot him adventuring with his family in the hills of Ojai or relishing the beaches of the Central Coast.
