Jeremy Talcott

Attorney |

Jeremy Talcott joined the Pacific Legal Foundation in 2016. He focuses on property rights and the separation of powers principles that (ought to) define American government.

Jeremy obtained his undergraduate degree in Communications from the University of Central Florida, but for every minute he spent in classes, he spent five more playing guitar or bass in several noteworthy-for-their-obscurity rock and roll bands. A few tours across the country later, Jeremy realized that he was spending all of his free time reading about the principles of liberty and decided to make a career out of it.

He graduated cum laude from Chapman University, Fowler School of Law in Orange, California, where he was president of the Federalist Society, Senior Articles Editor of the Chapman Law Review, and “that guy who keeps trying to talk about the Constitution” of the Chapman Moot Court team. His two favorite parts of law school were externing for Judge Andrew J. Guilford in the Central District of California and getting the top grade in Administrative Law from his favorite professor.

Jeremy has one extremely funny veterinarian wife, two rambunctious twin boys, three hungry cats, two nervous dogs, and a large pile of unread books, all fighting for his attention. He and his wife are slowly working their way through IMDB’s list of the Top 250 Horror Films of All Time.
