Mr Jacobstein came highly recommended but his performance was less than stellar. After one year and a depletion of 65K, I was no closer to a resolution. I fired him the next court appearance. He called me often to see how I was doing, and the next monthly statement would reflect those nice calls at his hourly rate. He saw resources and went after them. He was totally unprepared for the deposition and had me come in early to help organize for it. His office was a total mess and I would have to declutter the chair and part of the desk in order to meet with him. He refused to discuss my case with my wealth manager, even after I did a release. He had a CPA review my case and orally they came to a conclusion - - both refused to put in writing what advice was given, That was another 3500.00 plus Mr Jacobstein's fee. Mr Jacobstein refused to have a well respected gentleman ( knowledgable in what my case involved) from the Corporate community meet with him at his office because his secretary and her husband did not like him.( He had discovered ethical issues with her husband's law practice.) Every time I called and mentioned said person and his advice for the case, I had to refer to him as my "brother" as to not offend/worry his secretary. I repeated asked him to write me a will since the case was lingering and he always said he would and never did. I ultimately wrote my own. Mr Jacobstein is to be avoided at all costs. Trust me when I say he was almost worse to deal with than my husband of 30 years. This is a small community so I have let my case be resolved before writing this review.
