    I hav just read an answer of Mr. Jacobson to an IP question that was not good ... it was great. It indicates a depth of knowledge, a depth of analysis, and a willingness to contribute to improving the image and reputation of attorneys in the community at large. With these qualities, any client should feel both lucky and proud to obtain his legal services.

    Andrew Jacobson demonstrates tremendous knowledge and experience in a wide variety of legal matters, particularly with regard to business and intellectual property matters. His responses on Avvo are thoughtful, articulate, and accurate. I have tremendous respect for his sound legal knowledge and ability to communicate that knowledge. He is a true asset to our legal community. It is my pleasure to endorse him.
