Jacob D. Hunt

Jacob was born and raised in Marion, Ohio, relocating to the Lowcountry of South Carolina in 2013.  He has practiced in South Carolina since 2017 and in Georgia since 2018, assisting clients across both states.  Prior to joining Finger, Melnick & Brooks, P.A., Jacob was an associate at Jolley Law Group, LLC.  When he’s not in the office, Jacob enjoys spending time with his wife and their 2 dogs, spending time with friends and family, traveling, hunting, fishing, or otherwise spending time outdoors.  Since joining the South Carolina bar, Jacob has devoted much of his time to becoming more involved in the community at the local, regional and statewide level through joining or working with charitable groups and volunteering.
