Review Jacobs & Wallace
I had the privilege of working with Andrew Wallace during my Workman compensation case. It was a very difficult time in my life Andrew, Adele and their team always treated me with utmost respect and dignity. Any time I had a question or concern with my case I would place a phone call which was always answered by Andrew or a team member promptly. They are an outstanding law firm very professional very caring and I was always comfortable speaking with Andrew. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone. They won’t let you down! Thank you, Michael

Empathic Attorney
Right from the start I knew Andrew had a heart for his work and truly cared about my case. Always followed up, always there when you need him and his team. I would say Andrew Wallace is a Godly man because he cares about his clients best interest for truth and justice. I thank him , Michele and his team for a great job even with a small case like mine. Andrew and team are not about the money. They are more about doing what is right.

A Great Laywer
Andrew is a great lawyer, not only does he keep you informed on what's going on in the case but he will fight to get you the best possible amount of money possible and it was all wrapped up in a reasonable amount of time. If need be i would certainly use him again.

Highly Recommend!
After my accident, I was overwhelmed with having to deal with a big insurance company. As soon as I spoke to Attorney Wallace, I knew I had found the right person to represent me. Andrew immediately made me feel at ease and I was able to focus on my recovery from my accident without added stress. Throughout the process, I had many questions and Andrew was very accessible and compassionate. He listened to my concerns and guided me through this very difficult process. In the end, Andrew obtained a great result and I was able to move on with my life. I highly recommend Attorney Wallace to anyone in need of an injury lawyer.

A Lawyer who goes the extra mile
Mr Andrew Wallace was originally hired by my husband and I as our Workman's Compensation Case Legal Adviser and has been always knowledgeable as to what needed to be done to get the results we were seeking. Prior to hiring Mr Wallace we were getting nowhere with our own actions. His knowledge and expertise have amazed us as to how he was always on top of any situation that arose. Mr Wallace kept pushing to get the approval of 2 surgeries that were needed to be approved so that my husband could recover correctly with the proper treatments. We are so impressed with his ability to get the job done that we have decided to keep him on as our legal adviser because of his knowledge , his professionalism and his courtesy in all areas. We will always highly recommend Mr Wallace to anyone who is in need of a lawyer who will go that extra mile to get results with any case.

The Reasons Why Andrew Wallace is the Best!
I never thought I would need a Lawyer after my accident at work. After thinking a long time about it, I went to Carter Mario Law Firm. I met with Andrew and the moment I sat down I knew that he was my lawyer. He always worked very hard on my case. He was honest, caring and a very compassionate professional. I knew from the very beginning that he was on my side and he would give 100% and more for me, and my case! I trusted him and felt so confident that he would make everthing turn out for the better. I always felt very comfortable talking to him because he really understood what I was going through. Also, everyone working at the office became like family. I will always be thankful that Andrew was my lawyer, and I am proud to call him "My Friend".

Warm, knowledgeable, professional attorney
I had a case that was going nowhere. I wasn't receiving benefits checks and couldn't even get a hold of Gallagher Basset let alone get them to follow the law and pay me! I decided I needed someone who specialized in personal injury. As soon as I met Andrew I knew I was in good hands. All of the months of stress that had built up in my body just left. I was so relieved after meeting with him! I knew I could literally drop everything in his lap and he would handle it. My case was small, but he treated it as it was monumental because to me it was. He was in constant contact with me, as was his staff and when the time came to be paid (today) I thought to myself that he worked really hard for his fee. He deserved every penny! If you want an honest, caring and capable attorney, Andrew fits the bill. In fact, everyone I have met there has been awesome. Also, they all seem to love working there and are like a family!

'Peace' of Mind
Andrew and Michele worked diligently to help me receive quality care and appropriate compensation for my injury, which allowed me to rest and recover much more peacefully than worrying about the issues that arose from dealing with a difficult workers' comp insurance company.

very dissapointed
I met Atty Andrew Wallace in 2015 due to a work related hand injury, He was kind caring and personable and believed in me and took my case when other lawyers would not..fast forward to the very unexpected death of my brother Steven, age 61, who passed away in Westport Rehabilitation Complex unexpectedly,,,Andrew agreed to review the 1000s of records we obtained and my elderly mom paid for from her fixed income. In December , 5 months after they were given the piles of records, I reached out and I was told the paralegal left and no one had bothered to research our potential malpractice case, they then sent us a generic letter stating NO INTEREST...after they had a lawyer who had been on sick leave 6 months take 30 minutes to review over 4K records! it is insult added to injury. Now we are up against a time line of 2 years statute of limitations and they had the records untouched for over 5 months, it will be 2 years in January of 2023. If you want an honest decent lawyer to steer you in the right direction, avoid this group...Atty Jacobs who supposedly is an "EXPERT" in negligence mal practce in nursing homes never once contacted me...it has been the worst time for my family. I feel that they failed myself and my family but more so my brother who was an innocent victim of horrid care in a very lacking nursing home.
