About the Firm

A Regional Law Firm With A National Practice

Jacobs & Crumplar is a personal injury law firm founded by Robert Jacobs and Thomas Crumplar. Prior to the firm’s official founding in 1981, attorneys Jacobs and Crumplar had worked at Bader Dorsey since 1972 and 1978, respectively. While at Bader Dorsey, Jacobs along with Crumplar pioneered asbestos litigation when they filed one of the first asbestos cases in the nation. In 1980, when the firm broke up into various subparts, the two attorneys would go on to found Jacobs & Crumplar. They then successfully litigated a products liability case against GM and successfully advocated for a University of Delaware professor who was fired for being gay. The attorneys then worked on successful cases against Delaware’s then largest corporation, DuPont, as well as the Catholic church. The firm has since grown to five personal injury attorneys in two Delaware office locations- Wilmington and Millsboro.

Although based in Delaware, our attorneys are members of the bars of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and District of Columbia and handle cases there.  Our practice is built on a reputation of excellence, with nearly 90 percent of all the firm’s cases coming from the referrals of satisfied clients or from other attorneys.
