Attorney Jordan Acker Discusses His Career as a Personal Injury Attorney on the Case Closed Podcast


Personal Injury Results






Attorney Jordan B. Acker has dedicated his life to improving the country and his community. After graduating from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in History in 2006, he went to work for the Michigan Democratic Party as the Deputy Communications Director. Following the 2006 elections, he worked on staff for U.S. Representative John Conyers (D-Detroit) for the House Judiciary Committee in Washington, D.C. His work with Rep. Conyers on this committee helped to create his passion for the law and led him to attend the American University Washington College of Law, where he earned his J.D. in 2010.

As the youngest-ever University of Michigan board member, Jordan has demonstrated a strong commitment to advocacy and public service.

Jordan recently sat down with “Case Closed: The Contingency Fee Podcast” to talk best practices and trends in personal injury law. Case Closed: The Contingency Fee podcast is led by industry experts who unlock insights from the nation’s top contingency fee attorneys. Each week on the show the guests share how they got started, secrets of their success and what’s working in today’s marketplace. Jordan covers topics such as:

  1. His biggest frustration as a practicing PI attorney. Namely, the lack of self-governance by other attorneys.

  2. His area of focus.

  3. The latest trends in the legal area.

Attorneys and the Lack of Self-Governance:

Jordan discussed the challenges facing the legal profession and the importance of upholding the highest standards of professionalism and ethics. One of his biggest frustrations is the lack of self-governance by other attorneys, which can lead to unethical behavior and tarnish the reputation of the legal profession as a whole.

Attorneys are held to high ethical standards, and they have a responsibility to uphold the law and act in the best interests of their clients. However, as Jordan Acker pointed out in the Case Closed Podcast series, there is often a lack of self-governance among attorneys.

Jordan states that even-though Michigan has an Attorneys Grievance Commission, which should regulate the way attorneys practice, he feels that attorneys need to hold themselves up to a higher bar of ethical standards and practices.

“It is essential that attorneys hold themselves to the highest standards of professionalism and ethics to ensure that justice is served, and the integrity of the legal profession is maintained,” he emphasized.

Type of Cases He Handles

Jordan Acker is an experienced attorney who has built a successful career by providing high-quality legal representation to individuals who have been injured due to the negligence of others.

Throughout his career, Jordan has demonstrated a fierce dedication to fighting for justice on behalf of those who have been injured. He has taken on powerful insurance companies and corporations and has secured significant settlements and verdicts for his clients.

Linking to Jordan’s high ethical standards, he mentions that up to July 2021, Michigan had unlimited Personal Injury Protection (PIP). This needed reform because of abuse of the system by medical providers as there were gaps and loopholes for providers to bill millions of dollars in services. Regulation was thus needed to end this unethical behavior.
