My clients are important to me and ultimately become part of my team as we work on your case together.

Helping you navigate the law to find immigration legal solutions is what I love most about being an immigration attorney. I am privileged and honored to represent clients from over 50 different countries. I value this opportunity and strive to keep my clients informed at each stage of their case. Especially, with the immigration laws changing so often. It is important to me that you fully understand these changes, how they impact you, and the necessary next steps to help you get a favorable outcome in your case.

And, that is why we generally charge our clients a flat fee, rather than an hourly charge. This allows us to commuicate more without the fear that you will be charged an additional fee for each call or email when seeking clarification about your case. My goal is to competently advocate for you, your family, and your business, and help you reach a successful result.

Amazing Lawyer
I wanted to do a review on my specific experience with attorney Becki Jacobson. She was referred to me by another attorney, in whom he highly recommended for my case. Becki went above & beyond for me in order to secure me a favorable outcome. She did that & more. I recommend this attorney to anyone who is in serious need of an employment lawyer, she worked extended hours for my case to ensure all required deadlines are met, we had weekly meetings regarding updates of my case, she drafted all important documents needed in a timely manner, I never had to chase her to return my calls. Attorney Becki Jacobson is exactly what i want when paying for legal representation. Thank you Becki!

Traveled to represent us in New Jersey
Becki represented us in our I-130 petition interview. She was professional every step of the way. She was helpful in making us understand our situation and our options afterward. Lastly, we felt she went above and beyond in helping us get the outcome we wanted. Please do yourself a favor and hire her.

Our thanks
My husband and I are very thankful to Becki for her assistance. My immigration process went very smoothly due to her professional help, energy, and advice given in time, which were especially important as the whole thing coincided with COVID when the rules, dates, and procedures kept changing all the time. She was always aware of all the updates. Thanks to her profound knowledge and experience we prepared so well that everything was easy even in this difficult time. We felt her support at every stage of the process.

Competent and Diligent Attorney
Attorney Jacobson handled three of my cases with compassion and dignity. She is a zealous advocate. I would not hesitate to use her and completely trust her judgment. One of my cases was an extraordinarily complex case where she carefully navigated through the mud thrown by the other side, without charging a fortune that I was quoted by downtown Boston firms.

Becky Jacobson is an excellent & compassionate attorney
Becky went way out of her way to help me as I struggled through a contentious divorce over three years ago. She knew I have a disability -- a traumatic brain injury, and a particularly virulent form of PTSD -- and she clarified all legal terms, and explained our strategy and approach that my current lawyer had failed me in doing. She took over my case and stayed with me until the very end. She looked out for me! I am very grateful to Becky, and even though we haven't spoken in awhile I consider her a lifelong friend.

I highly recommend Becki to anyone in need for immigration law services!
I am realy lucky to have Becki as my attorney. I am her client since 2015, she is truly wonderful and I higly recommend her! She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, friendly, tenacious, enthusiastic, goal oriented and a very hardworking person! Becki has helped me reunite with my family. She went the extra mile, after the immigration center from Lawrence Massachusetts dissaproved my request for advance parole, Becki did not quit. The very same day she drove to Manchester, filled out a new set of documents and talked to all the representatives from that immigration center. She handled the situation with confidence and integrity. It wasn’t easy but she did it! They approved my advance parole and I was able to go see my dying gradma for the last time. Thank you very much Becki for all the help with my case!

Jacobson Review
Ms. Jacobson helped me in an employment matter and was very responsive and offered helpful advice.
Posted by Denyne | May 3, 2012
Very personable and knowledgable attorney
I am a small business owner who was seeking an attorney to help me in filing the LLC paperwork for my company as well as review my business contracts. I met Becki thru a local networking group and was immediately impressed by her enthusiasm and passion for what she does. With many attorneys out there today it is sometimes difficult to select one, so making a strong personal connection was important to me. In everything Becki did for me she was professional, prompt and thourough. Her suggestions for revising my contracts were spot on and defintely will help protect me from any future liability. I would highly recommend hiring Becki for any small business legal needs

Thank you for all you do Becki!
Becki has been working with me for the past 7 years and I'm very grateful for all her help. She advocated for me and had gone against some close people and I will always appreciate her for that. Thank you for all that you do!

I had my worse experience with this Lawyer!!!!
I am a previous client of Becki A. Jacobson., I will be honest I don't have nothing positive to say about this lawyer only BAD things to me she deserves no stars at ALL. I made the biggest mistake when I hired her to help me solve my immigration problems that I had but instead she did everything wrong all the documents that she filed was not needed I was going to be deported because of this. She didn't do nothing., the only thing she did was harassing me every time she had the chance by telling me that if I don't make a payment she won't represent me anymore and that I will be deported I still have all of those texts take note that she charge me $4,500.00 and I already have pay her more than half of the money and also I have gave her the title of my car. I went through all of this for NOTHING!! Thanks to her I was taking Xanax because she put me under so much stress and pressure:( The good news is that I finally was able to stay in the US because my case had things that was inaccurate and my new Lawyer was able to fight it with no problem. I sent her a letter and emails to refund my money but she have never respond.
