Name VariationJacob Wilbur Ehrlich was also known as Jake.
  • Jacob Wilbur Ehrlich was born on 15 October 1900 at Russia draft records lists birth as 15 Aug 1898; also reported as District of Columbia, near Rockville, Montgomery, Maryland.
  • He was the son of Harry Ehrlich and Dorothy Troshinsky.
  • Jacob Wilbur Ehrlich married Marjorie Ellen Mercer, daughter of Erastus Mercer and Louisa Jane Spyker, on 30 June 1920 at San Rafael, Marin, California, The wedding ceremony was performed by Marin County Justice of the Peace Herbert de la Montanya in San Rafael.1,2
  • Jacob Wilbur Ehrlich died on 24 December 1971 at San Francisco, San Francisco, California, at age 71 Attorney J.W. "Jake" Ehrlich, who came to San Francisco in a box car and rose to become The City’s most renowned trial lawyer, died suddenly today at his Nob Hill apartment. Ehrlich, who was 71, arose at 5:30 a.m. as was his invariable practice, according to his wife of 51 years, Marjorie. As he prepared his usual cup of coffee before walking from the apartment at 850 Powell St. to his office at 300 Montgomery St., the famed barrister complained of chest pains. Mrs. Ehrlich persuaded him to sit down and rest, and as pain persisted and grew more severe she telephoned his law partner, Edward Dullea, son of a former San Francisco police chief, who was already at the office. Dullea advised her to call a physician, and himself rushed to the Nob Hill apartment—only to find Ehrlich dead. Thus, a little more than six weeks after his 71st birthday, a career that made him not only a colorful and prominent San Francisco celebrity but a legend throughout the nation, was ended. Ehrlich won his greatest fame as a criminal lawyer, defending scores of murder suspects and according to the legend, never losing a case. But he handled more than his share of Bay Area socialite divorces, too, and it was estimated that about 97 percent of his lucrative practice, when he was at the peak of his activities, lay in civil cases. In addition, he defended more policemen on various charges than all the rest of The City’s attorneys put together, and had served for years as the attorney for the San Francisco Police Officers Association. A naturally gregarious, personable man, Ehrlich was also concerned with such matters as raising free milk for school children—an activity to which he devoted much attention during those years when he was the perennial president of San Francisco’s Saints and Sinners, a group composed primarily of show business people. He was known, among other things, for his fastidious linen and his huge collection of cufflinks as well as for his dramatic courtroom practices. The title of "The Master" was conferred upon him by his associates, and his steadfast slogan: "Never Plead Guilty." A close friend of financier Louis R. Lurie and a friend or associate of almost every other San Francisco celebrity, Ehrlich was virtually penniless when he arrived in The City in a boxcar in 1919. He did some small-time professional boxing here, earned a law degree, went back to the University of Georgetown after he accumulated a little money and there obtained a doctorate in law. His early days as an attorney were lean ones. The man who would one day charge a client $15,000 for 15 minutes work in the courtroom considered himself fortunate at the start to be given summonses to serve at $1 each. He had a yellow line painted down the middle of his desk, so the story goes, and whenever a prospective client walked in his opening remark was: "Put it on the line." He referred, of course, to cash. Ehrlich’s first bid for fame was the successful defense of theater magnate Alexander Pantages in a rape case. Pantages, defended by a battery of high priced lawyers, had been convicted. When he won a retrial, Ehrlich and Hollywood attorney Jerry Geisler assumed the defense—and Ehrlich’s brilliant courtroom strategy was credited with winning the acquittal. His later clients read like a Who’s Who of the social, sports and theater world, including such people as Dolly Fine, Gene Krupa, Madge Bellamy, Anita Howard of the Howard-Vanderbilt clan, Sally Rand, Martha O’Driscol, George Vanderbilt, Errol Flynn, Billie Holiday, Howard Hughes, Tony Stralla Cornera, Artie Samish, and Sally Stanford. Ehrlich was always, he said many times, disdainful of lawyers who try to make the facts fit the rules. His own principle, he insisted, was to make the law fit the facts. A widely read man, he startled many of his underworld clients by reading poetry and his socialite friends by being familiar with the insides of lavishly bound books the had never opened. Ehrlich married the former Marjorie Mercer on June 30, 1920, when he was working as a secretary to a railroad president in the daytime and as a tire factory employee at night and boasted total capital reserves of $3.70. The wedding ceremony was performed by Marin County Justice of the Peace in San Rafael—a county in which he was one day to own a seven-acre hilltop home, complete with a 60 foot swimming pool and an expansive view. In his later years, Ehrlich turned his love for reading into one for writing, and authored at least 11 books. In addition to countless magazine articles, he wrote and edited many of the scripts for the television series, "Sam Benedict," as well as other video shows. He also was the subject of a popular best-seller, "Never Plead Guilty," written by John Wesley Noble and Bernard Averbuch and published in 1955.3

He migrated in 1919 at San Francisco, San Francisco, California, in a boxcar. In 1933 at Worlds Fair, Chicago, Illinois, Jacob Ehrlich defended Sally Rand, a 1920 fan dancer. On 6 September 1937 California had not long to wait last week for the first use of its new law permitting peremptory challenge of the judge assigned to try a case (TIME, Aug. 30). Grey-topped, crotchety, bushy-eyebrowed Superior Judge Frank H. Dunne, 67, one of the old-timers on San Francisco's bench, had just opened court with the case of Howe v. Howe, an action to set aside a property settlement on a wife. Up popped noisy Lawyer Jacob Wilbur ("Jake") Ehrlich, 37, who once successfully defended Alexander Pantages against a rape charge. Said he, "Your Honor, it gives me great pleasure to avail myself of Section 170.5 of the Code of Civil Procedure. . . ." Thus he asked that the case be transferred to another judge. The momentary silence in the courtroom was acute. The judge was slightly abashed. While conversation buzzed the request was referred to Presiding Judge C. Julian Goodell who transferred the case, assigned it to another judge for trial this week. He in 1966 was published at A Life in My Hands: An Autobiography; The famous criminal lawyer "tells of his lifelong battle against the forces of legal vengeance and injustice; the celebrities like Billie Holiday, Walter Wager and Lawrence Ferlinghetti whom he defended in headline cases; and the fifty-six occasions when the charge was first-degree murder."7

     Dora Jane Ehrlich obtained US Social Security Card at Wisconsin; last residence San Francisco, San Francisco, California. I once asked my Aunt, Dora Jane, who raised me as if she were my mother where we stood on the spectrum between rich and poor.

I said, "I know we live well and have money, but we don't have millions of dollars. What does that make us?"

She responded by saying, "I beg your pardon! We are rich, we have always been rich and we will always be rich!"

I responded, "But Auntie, we don't have money like the Getty's?"

She interrupted me and said as she pointed to her heart, and then to her head, "Rich is in here and up here.

You will always be rich in heart and mind. If you have a lot of money that makes you wealthy. If you have no money, that makes you broke.

You see, richness is a state of mind; not how much money you have. It does not matter how much you have that counts in life. It's what you do with what you have than counts. And so long as you remember that you will always be rich."
