About Jennifer

Learn Jennifer’s areas of practice.

I want to make the difficult time in my client's life as comfortable as possible.  My practice is primarily focused on bankruptcy law. I started my own firm to give the client's personal service they deserve.

 

I went into bankruptcy law because  everyone deserves a second chance to get their life on track.  Bankruptcy is a great fit for me because there is a lot of interaction between the attorney and the client.

 

I graduated law school from Oklahoma City University in the top 25% of my glass.  I received my undergraduate degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at Arlington, graduating Magna Cum Laude.

Personable, professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and trustworthy
I have found Counselor Jakob-Barnes to be personable, professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and trustworthy. Getting out of debt can be a scary, expensive, and arduous process, especially, when there is old charged off debt involved. Understanding that it would take time and looking to, ultimately, pay off every single old debt, I contacted Counselor Jakob-Barnes in order to understand my options and to represent my interests when dealing with collection firms. Removing the uncertainty and ambiguity associated with settling old debt, she fully explained both the process and my options; she never once tried to convince me of more expensive legal services. Counselor Jakob-Barnes prevented the escalation of a collection legal proceeding and negotiated with the collection firm to get me the requisite time needed to pay off the debt without going to court or enduring the garnishment of wages. If you are trying to settle old, bad debt, my recommendation is to do some quality research, and I --highly--recommend that you hire Counselor Jakob-Barnes. She will explain your options, help you determine the optimal plan for your situation, walk you through the process, handle any necessary dealings with collection agencies/firms, represent your interests in legal proceedings, and provide you with a realistic best case outcome for your particular set of circumstances. Thank you Counselor Jakob-Barnes. :-)

Friendly Service
I contacted this attorney about a contract dispute. She answered all my questions and advised me on the best way to proceed. She quickly settled my dispute without having to go to Court.

Review of Jennifer Jakob
We met with Ms. Jakob several months ago to discuss her representation in a lease dispute. She felt she could help us out to come to a fair settlement with our previous landlord. After reviewing our case, she contacted the landlord's attorney with an offer to settle, which was accepted, and much better than they had previously demanded. We have come to an agreement that is mutually acceptable with terms that are within out financial limits. We are very pleased with Ms. Jakob, and would definitely use her again. She made sure to update us regularly during negotiations, gave us advice on what we could request and ideas for an offer, and helped us every step of the way. I was looking for a lawyer who was honest and trustworthy, not someone who was out to screw the opposing side. I was pleased ith her negotiations on outr part, and her ability to protect our interests.

"I received a phone call late in the afternoon from a friend who needed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy completed quickly to stop a foreclosure that was scheduled for the following day. I asked two bankruptcy firms in my area if they could file a case that night, and they said no. I called Jennifer and she happily met that afternoon with the client and helped her file the case.
