I've been using Mr. Setzer for over a year now and I recommend him to everyone I know. He's the first lawyer I've ever had represent me that I could tell actually cared about my situation. He's gone above and beyond in every instance and I could not be more grateful. Highly recommended.

My regular attorney, who is often regarded as the best criminal and dui lawyer in charlotte, hung me out to dry the day before I needed to appear in court.
I was frantically searching for representation for a last minute situation that came up with my probation. After 9 different highly rated lawyers told me they couldn't do anything for me or had no idea what to do, someone referred me to Jacob Setzer at 4pm the day before the last possible day I could appear before a judge.
Jacob Setzer got back to me promptly and agreed to go to bat for me with absolutely no notice. He didn't make any promises but he was positive and took the case when no one else would, he even offered to refund my money if he couldn't help me. Lawyers don't have to do that, he's a standup guy. I even offered to pay him double what he asked due to the time-sensitive and critical nature of the situation and he said no. He wouldn't take advantage of my situation.
The next morning he went right to work, he recruited my probation officer and began hustling for me. He never stopped, he hustled the entire time, he stayed positive, he made every smart, right move necessary and secured exactly what I needed so I didn't miss the biggest opportunity of my life. 9 of the highest rated attorneys in Charlotte said they couldn't help me, didn't know how, or that it was so improbable it wasn't worth trying.
My attorney of 5 years, who I had referred countless clients to, decided he was too busy to even make a phone call for me, Jacob Setzer, a total stranger, went to bat, and knocked it out of the park. I would recommend Jacob Setzer to everyone who wants to be treated fairly and have an amazing attorney.
He used to be a probation officer so he knows the system inside and out. If you have anyone but him represent you for anything related to probation then that's just a waste of money. He was incredible, honest and affordable.

I had a situation where I was incorrectly charged with an assault that I did not commit. Mr. Setzer worked diligently on my case and prevailed. I owe him a debt of gratitude for his hard work.

Jacob is an excellent attorney. He is often a goto lawyer on complicated Criminal Proceedure issues. He is well respected and known by his criminal attorney peers and local Judges. I would recommend and have recommended him to others.
