Practical,Thorough, Helpful & Knowledgeable
Steven heard me attentively and patiently regarding the facts of my case. He then advised me how to proceed with my impending divorce. He took his time and did not hurry up with the consult. He gave me practical suggestions, removing my doubts/ confusions. He presented alternatives as well. I must say that I was highly impressed by his professionalism, in touch with reality and humanism. I would highly recommend him and if the need arises, would hire him to represent me.

Mr Brian
Hired for a difficult divorce. Rates were fair, efficiency outstanding, very caring and personable, always looking out for the clients welfare, and Steve knows his stuff, no surprises and predicted the process from beginning to end coaching you in the process so I always felt at peace. I recommend Steve for any divorce case.

Responsive and Reasonable
I contacted a large number of lawyers detailing my situation and desires. He was one of the first to respond. He explained exactly how he can meet my desires and detailed what to expect right away. He gave me a reasonable quote the first time. Every other law office took up to a week to respond or not at all, quoted me 2, 3, 4 times the price, or didn't seem to understand what I was looking for and described an approach to the situation that I was not comfortable with.

Empathetic & Savvy
Steve is an empathetic and savvy attorney. He staunchly defended me in court and stood up in my defense against the opposing attorney in my divorce/child custody case. In addition, he sincerely listened to my concerns and adjusted his strategy accordingly....thereby helping to make me feel like this was a true partnership between he and I instead of a solo effort on his part. I felt very comfortable speaking to him about my case at any given moment. So much so that I now consider him a friend given the extensive amount of intimate details that I shared with him about my case. For those cost-sensitive people, he is not an attorney who nickels and dimes you to death like a lot of other attorneys. In light of that, I recommend Steve without reservation.

A True Professional
Steven provided structure, quick responses, and excellent guidance during a very difficult time in my life. I discovered Mr. Jacob while reading online reviews & I hope that my review can help if you are wondering if you should choose his law office. Everyone knows that divorce is difficult & contains many facets and decisions. Mr. Jacobs helped me navigate those decisions & I am grateful for his services.

Steven provided me with a superior advice and service during my divorce.
Steven provided me with a superior advice and service during my divorce. But his involvement didn't end there. One of the first impressing things was his ability to explain a difficult process in a simple and easily understandable way. This allowed me to make educated decisions and move smoothly throughout the process. Besides being an exceptional professional I could always count on Steven to be my sounding board and a friend. He negotiated a fair agreement with the other side under my direction. With that said Steven was firm and quick to push back on issues important to me. I could not imagine better representation, friend and confidant. Steven's many years of experience almost matches his charm and integrity. Thank you Steven for your hard work!!

Highly Recommend
I hired Steven Jacobs to take over my divorce case, which had been lingering with another law firm for months. Steven picked-up the case quickly and brought it to a favorable conclusion in short-order. Steven is highly competent and commanding in the courtroom, and perhaps as importantly, an expert strategist outside of the courtroom. Steven’s ability to out-think and outmaneuver the other party resulted in a successful and cost-effective divorce.

Best Lawyer EVER!!!
He has been amazing and continues to be as he is now my family attorney. From divorce to writing wills he is exactly what you want. Steven is on top of things and knows what he is doing. I've seen him in the worst situation and has come out winning. I wouldn't use any other lawyer. Thank you Steven for what you did for me and continue to do.

JACOBS IS A JERK!
Jacobs was my attorney for almost a year in a child custody case. I should have fired him the first week! He's will disparage and belittle you to your face and behind your back. He will side with the opposing party. He won't defend you in ANY way. My ex left our infants in car by themselves.A Lady hysterically called police and my ex almost got arrested for child endangerment. I had police 911 tape ready to play it during trial, Mr. Jacobs refused to play it !!! He said Judge doesn't care about that! Can you imagine that?? You have evidence of neglect and child endangerment and your attorney WON'T PLAY TAPE. At one point, Judge told Jacobs to write the temporary order. Lazy JERK JACOBS let opposing side write temporary order and they destroyed me...taking time with my kids away and even wrote I needed to take "26 hours of in class anger management". Jacobs is king of malpractice. I am currently drawing up lawsuit against him. You have been warned! [info removed]
