Jake R. Wallace
Attorney and Counselor at Law
A graduate of the University of Denverâ€™s Sturm College of Law, Jake Wallace first became interested in law through his study of history, the legal training of prominent historical figures prompting him to pursue that path as well. Born in Mission Viejo, California, Jake grew up in Bloomington, Illinois. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in History from Indiana University, specializing in ancient Greece and the Civil War reconstruction period, and studied abroad in Athens, Greece. After moving west for law school in Denver, Jake added a diverse group of legal experiences to his quiver. He especially enjoyed working as a student attorney with the Veterans Advocacy Project, where he helped low-income and homeless veterans access their disability benefits. In addition, he interned at the Lakewood firm Andrus Wagstaff and gained valuable experience working on mass tort lawsuits. Upon graduation, Jake completed a fellowship with Denver District Judge Eric Johnson, where he reviewed motions and pleadings, drafted court orders and worked directly with the Judge on various cases. Tschetter Sulzer appealed to Jake because of the hands-on experience he would gain working directly with clients, as well as his personal interest in real estate, particularly how legislation impacts what people can and cannot do with their properties. When he is not at the office, Jake enjoys dog sledding with his three huskies and his fiancÃ©e Julie, and has even competed in a few mushing races. His other interests include soccer, golf, hiking and snowshoeing.
