Rather than compose something specifically for folks looking for an attorney on this site, I've posted below the message I sent Ms. Jacobs after my divorce concluded. As you can see, I highly recommend Ms. Jacobs to represent you. She is simply marvelous.
"I can't thank you enough for taking me through this. Keeping me grounded rather than letting my emotions speak made me a pain, I know. It was somewhat necessary and I'm sure expected. But you handled it perfectly. I apologize for being a pain.
I came to you in this process primarily because of your "sounds like you need a creative attorney" response to my question posted on Avvo. But that just opened the door. In our initial meeting, I sensed you'd be best for me in all aspects. Up to that point, the barristers with who I consulted were men, each of who essentially stated the law and did so with a bit of testosterone oozing out. Made me feel like I was at the drive-thru window at McDonalds. I feel as though I dined at a 5-star sit-down restaurant with you. The service was extraordinary and the meal was excellent! I'll say it again--You're the best. Thank you!

Ms. Jacobs helped me with my uncontested divorce and parenting plan. After the divorce my ex-husband refused to pay for things he was ordered to pay for as part of the divorce/child support and to obtain various insurances for himself and our child. As a result of his contempt, I hired Ms. Jacobs again to help me with the contempt of court and the change to the parenting plan. Ms. Jacobs is extremely detailed oriented and a seasoned professional. Throughout the entire process (both of them) she was responsive to my inquiries, offered great legal advice and overall just a pleasure to work with during a difficult time. I have worked in the criminal justice system for 20 years and know what a difference a good/professional/knowledgeable attorney can do to protect their client and obtain the best possible outcome. Ms. Jacobs did that for me in the family court system. When we went to the final hearing with the judge she was prepared, articulate and seemed to be able to anticipate the judges questions and concerns. Overall, she did a fantastic job and I highly recommend Ms. Jacobs.

For me to give a review of Mrs. Jacobs , is an honor in itself. I have used Mrs. Jacobs on several occasions and her work has been above and beyond. I will say that this is the best money ever spent on an attorney. Not only have I used her, my friends have trusted my judgement and used her and share the same feelings as myself.
To the readers of this review, if you are in need of an honest hard working attorney, please consider Mrs. Jacobs; she will not let you down.

I would recommend Eileen Jacobs for your legal matters. We contacted her and made an appointment for consultation when we were served a judgement from our credit union. Within the first few minutes, we knew that we could trust her to take care of our legal matters. She showed us that she is reliable and demonstrated a willingness to help. She went out of her way to contact the plantiff's attorney and was able to settle an agreement at no cost to us. We were so pleased with her service, and would recommend her to our family and friends.

Let me begin by saying I cannot say enough good things and words cannot express how grateful I am to have worked with Eileen Jacobs. I had an ongoing issue with my former spouse refusing to agree to list our former home for sale and I had been through 3 other attorneys and had almost lost faith that this would ever get resolved. Finally a friend recommended Ms. Jacobs, and soon I realized my case was finally in the hands of a true professional. First, Ms. Jacobs invested the time in understanding my case and all previous filings before discussing any strategy or making recommendations, this may sound like an obvious first step but in my previous experience with other attorneys, they would take a cursory glance at a case and start making promises, but not Ms. Jacobs. Ms. Jacobs was methodical in her approach, realistic in setting expectations, and followed through on everything she said she would do. She always kept me informed, always returned my calls promptly, and took the time to answer any and all questions. Even though I am sure I was not her biggest case or client, she always made me feel like I was a priority and that this case was important to her too. In legal matters, you really want to feel like someone is on your side and truly is working hard for you, this is the type of representation you receive with Eileen Jacobs. During this process, we agreed litigation was the last resort and there was a point when we were approaching our court date and I was not nervous at all and the only reason was that I had Eileen Jacobs on my side and I had complete confidence in her abilities. Thankfully she resolved the case and we reached a settlement just prior to going to court which accomplished our goal and saved time and money. Since then the home was listed for sale and has just recently closed. I can imagine one of the difficult aspects of her job is managing the different personalities and one of those was mine, there were times when I would become emotional or frustrated and she was there not just as an attorney but as an advisor and advocate, she kept me focused and worked diligently toward our goal even when it was difficult for me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. She was always patient with me and was very persistent in accomplishing the goal we set out to achieve. My case came to a successful conclusion because of the hard work of Eileen Jacobs and I am forever grateful to have worked with such a talented professional.
