Quick Resolution to Business Dispute
I highly recommend this Jake Tuckfelt for his expertise in commercial litigation. His expertise in the handling of business disputes and partner issues was crucial for my start up business Honey Buz. He has ensured that my business can grow and my successful transition to sole ownership. Jake's strategic approach and dedication to my business's needs have been invaluable. An exceptional choice for any business owner facing legal challenges. T Lewit Founder/Owner Honey Buz

Exceptional Mediation Lawyer
I recently went through a divorce, and I couldn't be more pleased with the outstanding assistance provided by Jacob Tuckfelt. From the outset, Mr. Tuckfelt demonstrated unparalleled professionalism and expertise in mediation. What stood out the most was Mr. Tuckfelt's responsiveness. Communication was prompt, and he consistently kept me informed throughout the entire process. This level of attentiveness made a significant difference, as it alleviated many concerns and uncertainties that often accompany divorce proceedings. Working with Mr. Tuckfelt was an incredibly smooth experience. He created a supportive environment and facilitated open communication between both parties, fostering an atmosphere of cooperation. Mr. Tuckfelt was not only knowledgeable but also approachable, making the entire process more manageable. One aspect that truly impressed me was Mr. Tuckfelt’s commitment to fairness. It was evident that he prioritized equitable outcomes for both parties. Mr. Tuckfelt ensured that our concerns were addressed, and the final resolution was fair and just. In summary, I highly recommend Jacob Tuckfelt for anyone seeking a dedicated, responsive, and fair-minded lawyer, especially in divorce mediation. My experience was positive, and I am grateful for Mr Tuckfelt’s guidance during this challenging time.

Separation Agreement
Jake was an absolute pleasure to work with. Jake is very professional and knowledgeable when it came to the fields of help that I needed. Jake discussed all options and made them very clear to me. I have used Jake several times and both outcomes were positive and fair. I highly recommend Jake as a lawyer. Very satisfied!

Mediation
After consulting with another law firm, we found out that they could not begin our mediation for several weeks and the cost was higher than we had anticipated. I reached out to Jake and he was able to start the process almost immediately and for a reasonable sum. Throughout the process Jake remained objective and patient while giving us an accurate picture of what litigation would entail if mediation were to break down. There were a few tense moments but with Jake's help, we were able to see the process through to the end. I am wholly satisfied with the resulting agreement and would highly recommend Jake's services to anyone who finds themselves in a position where mediation is an option.

Guardianship for my father
Unfortunately my father left no power of attorney defined and later through diminished capacity was unable to take care of his own financial and personal needs. Jacob Tuckfelt was instrumental in obtaining guardianship over my father. With the legal guardianship I was able to resolve some medical insurance issues as well as take care of some financial issues for my father.

When I reached out to Jake in need of a divorce lawyer, I knew within seconds of the initial consult that he was my guy. His calm, reassuring explanation of the process steadied my nerves and got me on track. There were literally no surprises. He is smart, articulate, empathetic, and utterly competent. Highest Recommendations for sure!!

Thank you Jake!
Jake represented me in a legal matter. He explained options covering why or why not we would want to pursue certain avenues. He was efficient and timely and replied to all of my questions quickly and with attention to detail.

Great Attorney
Jacob Tuckfelt handled my divorce just recently. He was efficient and took time to answer my many questions about the process. He gave good advice and was able to keep things civil between my ex husband and I throughout the process.

Child Support
Jacob Tuckfelt was knowledgeable, thorough and kind. I had bit of an unconventional case and he worked well with the opposing lawyer to help us all come to a resolution.

Very Professional, thorough and caring !
Jacob Tuckfelf is a great attorney, I had the pleasure of watching him in action in the courtroom and I was highly impressed, then my attorney of that time follewed his appearance on a separate mater, she was lackluster and the Judge walked all over her. It was at that moment I knew who was going to be my next attorney, I’m happy to say, Jacob has since than repesented me several times on my divorce and custody maters in both family and superior court. He has not let me down and he takes my issues seriously, gave my a fair evaluation of my case, was clear on what could get accomplished and never sold me on unrealistic expectations. If you are looking for an attorney that actually cares and gives you the time you deserve, this is your next attorney.

Handled my horror-show divorce with dignity and honor
Jake Tuckfelt handled my *very* ugly divorce. He dominated the courtroom and totally outclassed opposing counsel. I couldn't be prouder of my friend Jake!

Quick and Easy Resolution
I recently went through the separation of my marriage and Mr. Tuckfelt did a great job walking us through the process and making sure we were both aware of all of the issues at hand. We didn't have a lot to divide but we were under a tight timeline with other issues and Jacob and his staff made it a good process.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Jacob Tuckfelt to deal with Mechanic's Liens against my property, which should have been against my Builder, however, after hiring Mr. Tuckfelt, he went into action and vigorously defended me. He was prompt in his responses to me and kept me in the loop the entire time. He is an Excellent Attorney and his staff is very pleasant. Mr. Tuckfelt made this process easier for me to deal with as he took care of everything for me. Hire him you will not be sorry!!!!
