Senior Star at Weber Place is proud to announce that resident Myles Jacobs has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Illinois Bar Association’s real estate law section.

Jacobs, a practicing attorney at age 86, earned this prestigious award for his many years of dedication, service and guidance to the Illinois legal community. 

He has been an avid reader and conversationalist on current events for most of his life, having been exposed at college to famous thinkers such as Thurgood Marshall.

Jacobs credits his quest for knowledge of worldly events to the president of Dartmouth College, who encouraged students to discuss great issues and did not want attorneys that were only book smart.

In fact, Jacobs initiated a monthly program on current events at Senior Star at Weber Place and at the Joliet Jewish Congregation.

A longtime resident of Joliet, Jacobs began working for Castle Law Firm in Joliet many years ago and today serves as Of Counsel for the firm where he speaks at seminars, reviews cases and coordinates their continuing education program.

Jacobs represented the firm May 19 at a presentation by the Illinois Bar Association, Real Estate Law Section, at Northern Illinois University in Naperville, where he co-presented a program with Senior Star and another attorney on senior housing alternatives and related topics.

Jacobs graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, and a juris doctor degree from New York University School of Law.

In addition, he has contributed to numerous publications during his career.
