Jorge Coombs, Esq.

Trustee, Region 13 (Atlantic and Cape May Counties)

Jorge has been a shareholder with the firm of Youngblood, Franklin, Sampoli & Coombs, PA since October 2012.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers College in 1993, where he double majored in Political Science and Spanish.  He received his Juris Doctor from the Rutgers School of Law in Camden in 1998 and, while attending, was elected President of Alianza, the Latin-American law students association, by his peers.  He participated in both Hispanic National Bar Association and Hunter Advanced Moot Court competitions.  Prior to joining the firm, Jorge taught in the Linwood Public Schools and was an Adjunct Professor of Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure at Burlington County Community College.  Although his practice concentrates on immigration matters and criminal defense, Jorge currently serves as Planning Board Solicitor for the Borough of Folsom and Municipal Utilities Authority Solicitor for the Township of Weymouth.

In 2007, Jorge was awarded the “Nuestro Pueblo” Service Award by the Hispanic Alliance of Atlantic County for his frequent public seminars on immigration reform and education.  In 2008, he was recognized by the Atlantic City Weekly as one of greater Atlantic City’s “Top 40 Under 40” and was awarded the Bronze Medal for Best Lawyer in The Press of Atlantic City’s annual “Best of the Press” readership poll.  Since 2016, Jorge has appeared more than half a dozen times on Univision (WUVP Channel 65 in Philadelphia) to provide political analysis and immigration law updates to the Spanish speaking community.  When not at work, Jorge enjoys spending time at home with his wife and children in Smithville, New Jersey.
