Posted by Paul, a Divorce client,
I highly recommend Richard Jacobson who served as my divorce attorney. He showed his commitment to my case by listening to my concerns and making my needs his priorities. His cogent methods during negotiations were effective and tactfully delivered.
My extremely contested divorce was an arduous ordeal, yet throughout it I felt supported and very well represented. Ultimately the divorce process will end, but for children it is a lifetime event. Richard continually advised me of the pros and cons of pushing too hard or giving up too much throughout the divorce process. I think this critically important ability cannot be overstated.
Richard has an amazing breadth and depth of knowledge across both the legal and practical side of family matters, and he communicates it more effectively than anyone I know. Richard earns my highest recommendations because he has the skills and abilities to win at both offense and defense on my behalf.

Mr. Jacobson represented me with a minor case, but gave it the utmost attention and care. He provided very useful immediate advice at the time that he agreed to represent me, stayed on top of things as everything developed, and made sure I understood my options and choices. Perhaps most importantly, he made sure that I wouldn't let a minor inconvenience become a life-controlling issue, and provided a good mix of comfort and frankness. He took his time explaining the legal situation to me, listened to my concerns, and was available practically all of the time. I would highly recommend Mr. Jacobson, since he greatly cared about me as a client.

Richard helped me close my business by first filing a Chpt & and then Chpt 11 bankruptcy. He was very thorough and compassionate with advice and I went through a very hard time. I was able to avoid also filing a personal bankruptcy.

I was terrified about going to a lawyer but was very comfortable and pleased with Mr. Jacobson. He helped us and solved our situation. He always followed through on a timely basis. He was up front and no games about his fees. He also tells some very entertaining jokes. A pleasure to work with.

Richard handled a bankruptcy case for me. He was everything one could ask for in a lawyer: knowledgeable, efficient, painstaking, patient--and moreover willing to travel a good distance to defend my case. I can't recommend him too highly.
Posted by John, a Chapter 7 client,
Richard was our lawyer for a Chapter 7 my wife and I had to file. He was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the law, very attentive to our needs and was patient and responsive to my many many questions. He kept us informed every step of the way, guiding us though the twists and turns of our case. Chapter 7 can a difficult and stressful experience, but Richard and his staff made it as painless as possible, for which we are especially grateful. I highly recommend Attorney Jacobson.
