This attorney and her entire firm is a scumbag of the most magnificent proportions. Her and her associates lied to a judge, delayed at every turn and tried every dirty trick in the book, even when negotiations went her clients way. Jacob & Fritsch are the reason family law attorneys have a bad name.
I did practically all the work and passed it to her office during course of divorce and her office did very little. Seems to not care once she gets your money. Golda Jacob was a "no show" on a day of appointment setup one week previously with her, she made efforts to totally avoid me. She did not even subsequently apologize for being a 'no show'. I immediately dropped her and got more competent attorney.
I retained Golda Jacob as my attorney for a divorce from my husband of 20 years. My husband in turn hired another well-known Houston divorce lawyer. Let me tell you, I am the one who made the right choice with Golda. Golda manages to be attentive and caring yet, at the same time, aggressive when she needs to be. I would recommend Golda to anyone who is going through a divorce.
I wanted to thank Golda and Kelly for all of their hard work. It was their tenacious attitude and experience that got me a positive result with my children. These gals are very friendly and make sure to keep an open line of communication. I would definitely recommend this firm to any of my family and friends.
Even though this divorce was uncontested it still took her almost exactly a year to get it finalized. My ex-spouse's attorney got everything they asked for as she protested nothing...then she advised me not to seek child custody, so I didn't, then the kids mother doesn't take possession of the kids but is still collecting child support but I'm taking care of the kids!!! Asked her to file Modification of Child Custody paperwork in February, Its June now and this still isn't done and in the meantime I'm out significant child support money and I've still got the kids!!
Totally unprofessional office. Terribly reluctant to make an appointment with you even after receiving payment!! If you are assigned this attorney as an ad litem in an adoption case IMMEDIATELY ask the clerk to reassign you!!! This office does not treat you as a priority!!! EVERYTHING else is more important and you will sit on the back burner until you burn!!! If you want to make a stressful process worse keep/hire this attorney! She will make you think you are having a stroke! Not only were they reluctant to make an appt. they didn't seem to care to take the time to see my home or meet the adoptive parent?-how is that looking out for the child's best interest? The secretary acted like they didn't have our case file from the court and wanted me to scan every page I had filed and email it to them! I started to do it looking at the over 20 pages and then thought- isn't this what I'm paying them for? Even after being assigned over 2 months to this woman I still had not spoken directly with her. The court warned me that it would take the social worker time to come out and meet us yet it took her only 2 weeks to come out from being assigned and we have been assigned to this lawyer for over 2 months and still waiting! When her office filed an answer to accept the adoption (amicus) case they filed incorrectly listing the adoptive parent's name as the minor child up for adoption! Then only after I was the one to catch the mistake they aknowledged it and said they woud file to correct it. Once giving them time I called to see if the correction had been made and they said it was but when I got the correction the date it was corrected was the date I called to check! Then when they sent me the correction the bold print was still incorrect. Why do I need to pay this woman when she does not have my child's best interest at heart nor do they seem to have the professional capabilities to run their business effectively! Then BEFORE our appointment date where we were meeting for Her convenience at Her office, the office called asking why we were not at her office for our appointment, then acted like it was us that had got the date wrong! No way possible would I have got the date wrong! This is MUCH more important to me than it is to them! So we had to reset and take off work AGAIN for a later date. This case has already been delayed longer than necessary for their convenience! If she is so overscheduled with other clients she should not do amicus work! Our adoption case should be very minimum work for her and her office and a fairly easy process once getting to this point and yet they have completely fumbled every step of the way. I feel like I have to babysit every step rather than feel confident I am getting what we paid so dearly for. And yet they felt the need to remind me in the first letter I ever received from them that if I had made any mistakes filing Pro Se they would charge me for their time to correct it! -Please don't touch my paperwork-who knows what you could do to mess it up! I have yet gone to court to finalize everything which only requires her showing up and signing her name! God help us.
