Law office of Jacob P. Welch
JACOB P. WELCH, born in 1953, was raised in Corning, New York, surrounded by a family of lawyers. His father, Vincent J. Welch, and his namesake uncle, Jacob G. Welch, began a law practice in Corning shortly following World War II. Both are now deceased. Jacob P. Welch has two brothers and a nephew who are also attorneys.
The Welch attorneys have enjoyed a reputation of providing excellent legal services to the local community for over a half century. He has been rated “high to very high” by his counterparts in Martindale-Hubble, the most widely known book published about lawyers and their ratings.
Mr. Welch is also one of the very rare attorneys who practices in the Southern Tier of New York who has personally obtained two personal injury settlements topping the million dollar mark. He has also been a long-term member of the American Trial Lawyers’ Association. Furthermore, he is one of only two regional representatives serving the Trial Section of the New York State Bar Association, Seventh Judicial District – an area spanning from Corning to Rochester. This is a position of high honor in trial attorney circles.
