Dana D. Jacobson’s law career spans more than three decades. He graduated from St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio in 1985 and joined the US Air Force as a First Lieutenant and a judge advocate. He served as a Chief, Military Justice, and an Area Defense Counsel for nearly three years at Howard AFB in Panama, and as a Circuit Defense Counsel at Randolph AFB before becoming a Medical Law Consultant at Wilford Hall Medical Center, the world’s largest military medical center at the time.

Dana left active duty in 1991 to become a medical malpractice defense attorney at Thornton, Summers, Biechlin, Dunham and Brown in San Antonio. He remained in the Air Force Judge Advocate General’s Corps Reserve, retiring with the rank of Colonel in 2016. He continues to hold Top Secret/SCI clearance.

In 1994, Dana joined his father Jake as a partner in Hardy Jacobson Gazda & Jacobson, P.C. In 2001, Dana and his father remained the primary partners in the firm, which then became The Jacobson Law Firm, P.C. They worked together until Jake retired in 2015.

Dana is a seasoned litigator but now concentrates in estate planning, probate, business law, municipal law as a judge and prosecutor, and security clearance matters.

He has been married to his wife Betsy for over 35 years, and they have two daughters, Rachel Mangum and Mara Babb, and two grandchildren.
