Several times in this case when my feelings and emotions wanted to take over Jacob put things in perspective, he calmed my nerves. He gave great advice about the present situation, and future situations to come. He was very fair, and not just about the money. Jacob is hands down the best attorney I've worked with, and I've worked with several in different situations.
Jacob was always very compassionate. He understood the hardship of divorce and was always sensitive to the details. He was keen to listen and connect at an individual level. He was always kind and took the time to listen. That alone means a lot to a person whose life is being turned upside down!
Jacob truly saved me from a conviction that would have haunted me the rest of my life. The Judge even told me he was a fine Attorney and that he would have tossed the offer out had it been anyone els. I had a very unique situation and Jacob spent hours and hours studying to make sure I came out on top. Thank you Jacob!
Jacob was very helpful in handling my case. Someone ran a red light and hit me. It wasn't too bad but I did have to go through some therapy to get back to full health. He handled all the interaction with the insurance company and also dealt with the doctors office to make sure everything was covered and I was taken care of. It was great not having the added stress of dealing with all the communications and having the peace of mind knowing that the insurance company or doctors weren't taking advantage of me. Jacob handled everything very professionally and I would highly recommend him. I will definitely use him next time I need legal representation or other legal advice.
The first time I met with Jacob to discuss filing for divorce, he made me feel confident in moving forward with one of the most difficult obstacles I would endure in my life. Although I was scared and unsure of what the future may hold for myself and my young children, I felt hopeful and optimistic for the first time in years because I now had Jacob representing my position. I also knew I could trust him to ensure that each and every decision, from that point forward, would be made with the best interests of my children as the main focus.
Jacob is simply delightful to work with, even under less than happy circumstances such as divorce. He is caring, confident, quick witted and, when the situation calls for it, very tenacious. His knowledge is endless and his compassion was evident the entire time. His prompt and thorough responses to each of my inquiries was invaluable and I can’t thank him enough for his consideration. I wouldn’t refer my friends or family to anyone but Jacob.
Having children involved with a divorce is never easy, however Jacob is there for you every step of the way. His open, honest and forthright manner allows you to confidently proceed with his assistance. I couldn’t be happier that, during those first steps of trying to find the perfect lawyer, I called Jacob who was willing to fight for me and my children. I don’t view Jacob simply as ‘my attorney’, but also as an advocate and friend which I was fortunate enough to have by my side during a difficult time in my life.
I was having difficulties navigating a settlement with my childrens' mother and their living arrangements. Jacob helped all of us reach a solution that worked in the best interests of them and allowed them to achieve their desired result. If it wasn't for him, I don't think we would be where we are today. He anticipated every outcome and left me feeling assured every time I freaked out. Jacob will give you peace of mind.
Jacob helped me out of a jam I got into at work for selling to a minor. He got my fine reduced dramatically and for that I am grateful.
Jacob is a no-nonsense, low-drama attorney who took care of my divorce smoothly after I had fired my prior team. He continues to be helpful any time I have questions, and I would happily recommend his services to anyone.
Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Jacob. His knowledge of the law and practices of such were amazing but it was his patience, understanding, compassion and passion that I appreciated. He took the time to understand me, my case and went the extra mile to make sure he was doing everything possible to represent me in the best way he could. He devoted time and attention when he didn't have to. His calm demeanor was much appreciated and needed at times, most important I trusted Jacob's knowledge and experience and it was because of all these things and more I am proud to recommend Jacob to anyone and everyone! GREAT job!!!
