    I had my property surveyed & discovered that a fence built by my neighbor is about 3 feet onto my property. I would like to reclaim this land if possible.

  • Are there any services that offer free consultation for custody and visitation cases? I'm not sure if he has a strong case..

    Jacob’s Answer

    It is very hit or miss when it comes to "free consultations" and family law. My office does offer free consultations but I can see why some do not. Family law is an extremely busy area of the law and an hour meeting with tons of potential clients can be an enormous expense if the law firm is busy.

  • Can a first time felon with the charge of 1st degree robbery get house arrest?

    She has no prior felonies. They were other people involved in the crime that coerced her into doing said crime. She has a very sick son at home. Hasn't been in any trouble since she has been in jail. Does she stand a good chance at house arrest?

    Jacob’s Answer

    I think she should come in to see an attorney for a free consultation. This is very serious.
