Trustworthy attorney
Travis Jacobs is an amazing competent and trustworthy attorney. During my first phone call with him, I knew I was in a good hand for I could feel that he cared about me as an individual, not just another client. He is not only extremely knowledgeable about the law but also worked with me to ensure that I fully understand the whole process. Further, he treated me with respect, and kept me well informed the whole time via phone and emails for quick responses and updates. The communication from the beginning of the process to the end was superb! I am very grateful to him for representing me and the result is satisfying. I would highly recommend Attorney Travis Jacobs with no reservations to anyone who is looking for a legal representation that is honest, fair, and will truly keep your best interest and needs at the forefront.

5 Star Service!
The Jacobs Law provided 5 Star Service. From initial contact until the service was complete, they were caring professionals for my needs. They were always responsive, communicated effectively, listened to my concerns and knowledgeable of the Law for what I needed. As most were quoting a week to establish my LLC Business Entity and IRS EIN, The Jacobs Law completed it in a matter of a few hours. I will use The Jacobs Law for all Business Law needs I have in the future. Thanks The Jacobs Law!

Thorough and helpful!
Travis was very helpful as we worked through some issues with a former landlord regarding a part of a security deposit that was wrongfully withheld. He truly advocated on our behalf and was responsive and thorough with all updates and information provided to us throughout the entire process. Dealing with this type of situation was something unfamiliar to my roommates and I, but Travis made us feel informed and confident.

Wow, a nice lawyer - lol
I contacted Mr. Jacobs about a legal issue concerning my LLC. In the end, his firm wasn't the right fit for my issue, but he still spent a long time with giving me some ways to approach my problem, and gave referred me to a couple of other lawyers that might be able to help me. I was very impressed with his professionalism!

Client
Our company hired Mr. Jacobs to represent us in a rather difficult business matter. Mr. Jacobs spent time to thoroughly examine documents, asked questions that we did not even contemplate and ended up giving us an advice that clearly worked out to resolve the situation to the best possible outcome for our company. Furthermore, Mr. Jacobs was extremely patient and understanding when it came to getting rather different feedback from various owners and officers and guided us to resolving our internal differences of opinion. Always followed up on any conversation and kept on top of the situation from day one until final resolution. Highly professional, knowledgeable and reliable legal counsel. Would definitely recommend Mr. Jacobs and his firm to anyone seeking a business attorney to represent their company on regular basis or just resolve a single issue.

Very Knowledgeable & Efficient
My business retained The Jacobs Law LLC for several different legal matters – first, to respond to a MGL Chapter 93A Demand Letter and second, to draft a handful of contracts for our business to use with customers, contractors and subcontractors. Our experience with The Jacobs Law LLC was amazing. The response they drafted to the 93A Demand Letter was so detailed, thorough and well thought-out that the claimant dropped the dispute. The contracts are just as thorough and were customized to our company’s specific needs. The firm’s rates are also very reasonable, especially for the quality of work we received. I really can’t say enough good things about our experience. I would highly recommend this law firm to any small business.

Knowledgable, Helpful, Prompt
I've worked with several attorneys over the years, but Travis Jacobs is one of the best. Knows what you need and won't try to sell you on something you don't need. In addition, his team is very easy to reach, always responds quickly to emails or phone calls, and explains things very well so you can understand everything without needing a law degree.

Simply the BEST.
Without a doubt, Travis Jacobs is the single best lawyer I have ever had the chance to work with. He is meticulous with his work, detail obsessed, punctual (in fact early, which is rare these days), prepared, and one of the most intelligent people I know. He always makes sure he gets back to me in a timely manner, even when he is swamped with court, depositions, etc. I cannot say enough about him, and will, without question, trust him for every legal need I have as long as I own a business. He's more than a good luck charm, he's proven that he is the key to success. Thank you, Travis!

Good Experience
We hired Travis to review all of our contracts and business agreements. We’re a niche financial company, understanding everything we we’re trying to accomplish wasn’t going to be easy. We were very happy with Travis’s ability to breakdown our concepts and guide us to the best way to accomplishment our goals and keep us protected.

Very helpful and responsive
We can't recommend attorney Travis enough. He is very professional, responsive and knowledgeable. He dedicated his time reviewing our case, meticulously explained the legal proceedings in terms that we could understand and offered advice for our best course of actions. It was a pleasant experience working with Travis and we'll be sure to reach out to him for our next business legal needs.

Great Experience
What I liked about Travis was not even his experience, of which he had a lot, but for how easy it was to connect to another human being. Sometimes you don't go to lawyers when things are going great, you need them when the chips are down. Having Travis there for us gave us the knowledge and confidence to move forward past our obstacles.
