Lawrence is one of nine children born to Hilton Jacobs and his wife Clothilda. Lawrence attended Wilkes University, however, he became more focused on acting, and switched to the High School of Art and Design. Following his graduation, he joined the Negro Ensemble Company, where he took his education to the next level, and became ready for a career as an actor.

He made his debut in the film “Claudine” (1974), alongside James Earl Jones and Diahann Carroll, after which he landed a leading role in the film “Coolie High” (1975). The same year, Lawrence was selected for the role of Freddie ‘Boom Boom’ Washington in the TV series “Welcome Back, Kotter” (1975-1979), which not only helped him establish himself as an actor, but also increased his net worth. By the end of the 1970s, Lawrence also was the lead in the film “Youngblood” (1978), increasing further his net worth.

In the first half of the 1980s Lawrence only appeared in the film “For The Love Of It” (1980), but in several series, including “Lewis & Clark” (1981), “Rituals” (1984), but only in minor roles. His second half was much better, landing roles in such successful films as “L.A. Heat” (1989), as Jon Chance, a role he repeated in sequels “L.A. Vice” (1989), and “Chance” (1990), and the role of Sergeant Dobbs in the TV series “Alien Nation” (1989-1990). His net worth was boosted considerably.

Lawrence continued to appear mostly in support roles in series through the next decade; his acting credits include such TV series as “The Jacksons: An American Dream” (1992), “Renegade” (1994), “Roseanne” (1996), “Mr. Rhodes” (1997), “L.A. Doctors” (1998), among others, all of which certainly added to his net worth.

With the beginning of the 2000s, Lawrence began to feature again in film productions, including “The Streetsweeper” (2002), “30 Miles” (2004), and “Sublime” (2007), which reignited his career. In 2008 he was selected for the role of Donny in the TV series “Players at the Poker Palace”, and the following year he starred in the film “Young American Gangstas”, which added a considerable amount to his net worth.
To speak further of his accomplishments as an actor, in 2011 Lawrence featured in the film “Nocturnal Agony”, and two years later appeared in the film “Playin` For Love”, alongside Jennifer Lewis and Esai Morales.

Most recently, he was selected for roles in such productions such as “Mercy for Angels” (2015), and “31” (2016), directed by Rob Zombie.
He has also been recognized as stage actor, appearing in such plays as “I Love My Wife”, “Ceremonies in Dark Old Men”, and “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” among others, which have also added a substantial amount to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, there is no information in the media about Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, suggesting that he tends to keep his private life away from the cameras.
