As a graduate of the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, Jerome served as co-chair of the Moot Court Board and Executive Editor of the Hastings Communications & Entertainment Law Journal (COMM/ENT). As a moot court competitor, he won a Best Brief award at the 2006 John Marshall International Information Technology & Privacy Law and the 2008 Tulane University Mardi Gras Sports Law competitions. Jerome completed a federal judicial externship for the Honorable Martin J. Jenkins, formerly of the United States District Court, Northern District of California. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with honors from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Jerome's latest legal success was achieving partial summary judgment in a real estate transaction case fostering a quick settlement, for a fraction of the claimed damages. Jerome was anointed as a Northern California Rising Star in 2012 by Super Lawyers, an organization that rates outstanding lawyers who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Jerome also serves as a volunteer legal adviser to President Barack Obama's campaign and other Democratic candidates through California and the nation.
