J. Harrison Fulk (Jake)
Jake Fulk, a Partner at Cox & Fulk LLC, has handled family law matters for the past sixteen years, building a reputation as a leading divorce attorney in Bloomington, Illinois.
The majority of his caseload, which he limits in size in order to maintain a priority on personal service, derives from word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied clients and fellow attorneys who are familiar with his approach to the practice of family law.
A tireless and prepared approach to the litigation of each divorce or family case has resulted in hundreds of desirable case outcomes for his clients, and for families in Central Illinois.
While Jake regularly handles contested hearings on financial and parenting issues in all manners of family law cases, he prioritizes the avoidance of excessive disputes and therefore the conservation of financial resources and personal amiability within families.
Mr. Fulk is also pleased to team with the other attorneys of Cox & Fulk LLC on a variety of important matters outside the area of family law for the benefit of business clientele and individual clients of the firm.
After graduating with honors from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2007, Jake returned to the Bloomington-Normal community and devoted his first years of practice to representing lower-income victims of domestic violence with Prairie State Legal Services. He then entered private practice and transitioned to Cox & Fulk (then Cox & Associates) from his partner role at Ronda Glenn Law Office in 2016.
In private practice, J. Harrison Fulk maintains a pro bono caseload in order to help local families in need of low-or-no-cost legal assistance.
He was born and raised in Normal, where he still resides with his wife and two children.
J. Harrison Fulk graduated (cum laude) from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2007 after earning a B.A. in Religious Studies from Indiana University in 2004 with High Distinction, Departmental Honors, General Honors and Phi Beta Kappa.
He received a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ”I Have a Dream” Award for Outstanding Contributions to Human Relations from the Town of Normal in 2001.
He was Associate Editor of the Elder Law Journal at the University of Illinois College of Law and was President of the Undergraduate Religious Studies Association throughout college, where he completed his honors thesis based on thematic patterns in the temples of Varanasi, India and was a member of the National Championship Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl team in 2004.
