    • I recommend Donald Jacobs.
    • I hired Donald more than 3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Wills / Living Wills matter.

    I have known Don for close to 30 years. He has always been extremely professional, well versed, honest and ethical. I've been a client of his and no doubt will be again as well as a person who referred business to him and he has always represented himself and his practice with the utmost of professionalism, courtesy, and knowledge. He has my unqualified recommendation.

    • I recommend Donald Jacobs.
    • I hired Donald more than 3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Estate Planning matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    We requested Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, Living Will and Health Care Surrogate legal documentation to be drafted based on our rather uncertain desires for eventual satisfaction of our personal final decisions.
    Attorney Jacobs stipulated a fee, arranged a personal interview with us in quiet, comfortable office, and comperhensibly briefed us on the broad ramifications of end of life legal documentation and the decisions to be made by each of us. He followed the interview some days later in another informal meeting when our ideas were finalized and personalized in documents he later developed.

    In the third and final session, again in a quiet, comfortable office, Attorney Jacobs explained in detail the documents put before us, introduced us to competent witnesses he had arranged to be present and guided us through each document, our approval of each document, the formal signing and witnessing of each document while responding objectively to any questions we offered.

    As we would say in the Navy; Well Done, Attorney Jacobs!

    We highly recommend Attorney Donald F. Jacobs to all needing legal counsel.

    I have known Mr. Jacobs for many years and have had the pleasure of working with him on cases we have had together. He is one of the finest attorneys I know. His credentials are impressive. When he takes a case, he commits himself whole-heartedly to the matter. No doubt, in every case, his work product is impeccable and his responsiveness to his clients is reliable. I highly recommend him.
