Great Attorney
Justin consulted with me on my divorce and then on a revision of my parenting plan. He gave me a lot of really great advice, and I would highly recommend him. If I were to find myself going through the unfortunate scenario of a second divorce, I would absolutely use Justin again.

Knowledgeable, empathetic, attorney
My overall experience with Justin Jacobson was excellent. He always made himself available whenever the situation with my ex became chaotic and provided me with excellent counsel and support. Overall, he gave my case all the time and attention that was needed in a sometimes difficult and stressful situations. He was a calming and confident presence during a difficult process. His rapport and guidance was outstanding throughout; prompt, timely and open for calls, messages and quick updates. He worked through all the questions and issues of my case. I always felt that he looked out for my family's best interests and had my back the entire time. I will continue to use Justin for other legal matters that may arise, as I am confident in his counsel. He also has a great team that was very responsive and supportive as well and kept me informed of everything happening with my case as well as what was coming ahead. I would unequivocally recommend Justin and his team.

You want Justin in your corner
I thought I had my situation all figured out and had expectations that a consultation with Justin would confirm what I already knew. I couldn’t have been more wrong. He had knowledge and insights that I hadn’t even considered and saved me from making a huge financial mistake. You want someone who is sharp yet empathetic, which Justin is. I am grateful to have him in my corner!

Justin was very good at explaining exactly what needed to happen each step of the way. He and his office were both very responsive, friendly, and helpful. There were no delays or confusion, just excellent communication and a speedy resolution to an unfortunate situation.

Fantastic divorce attorney
If I could give 10 stars I would. Justin is a fantastic divorce attorney. I retained Justin after working with another attorney for 9 months and getting nowhere. Justin got it settled in 2 months. His assistant Reza was very easy to work with and both Reza and Justin were always prompt with responses to any questions I had. Their attention to detail was outstanding. A pleasure to work with both of them and I would recommend him to anyone.

Divorce
I reached out to Justin due to another clients referral and he did not dissapoint. One thing I loved about him was that he consulted for free and was very personal with a phone call. He listened intently, answered all my questions and worked diligently on my case. In the end, I folded and did not go through with the divorce and he respected my choice and wished us well while keeping the door open if any changes were made in the future. I will use his office again and again. Highly recommend!!

Justin is really the best
Before I hired an attorney to handle my divorce, I looked around the internet to see what other clients of his had to say about Justin Jacobson's handling of their divorce. After reading many very positive reviews, my mind was made up! Justin will get to work his "magic" for me. Now, 5 months later, my divorce has been completed VERY SUCCESSFULLY and I could not be happier. The letters in his name tell why Justin is so successful at what he does. J=JUDICIOUS I could always count on Justin to provide me with the best advice. U=UNDERSTANDING Justin understood that going through a divorce is a rather painful experience. He always was very accepting of my views, even if he thought that I was not correct in MY judgement. S= SMART I knew that Justin's experience in divorce law would always be correct and would help me to get, when all was said and done, the most favorable settlement. T= TENACIOUS I knew that Justin had his plan on how he was going to deal with the opposing attorney and that he would not waver in the pursuit of his plan, even if obstacles were thrown in his path. I= INGENIOUS Justin was terrific in coming up with views that I would never have thought of. N= NEVER WOULD QUIT Justin made it a point of always staying in touch with me, even if he was out of town or working on other cases

Divorce and Parenting Plan Expert
When I was served by my ex-wife for majority custody of our two children in 2022, I was on an emotional roller coaster. I immediately called a friend who is an attorney, and without hesitation she recommended I speak with Justin Jacobson. Justin is an elite listener and very solution-oriented. He is a staunch advocate for his client. Together, we mapped out a plan, and over several months we are finally at a resolution of the matter with a final judgement. His guidance and honesty through the whole process was invaluable to me. His staff are also excellent and very responsive during an incredibly stressful time. I will refer my friends and colleagues to him without reservation.

Divorce
Mr. Jacobson did an excellent job advising and representing me on my divorce. He is very well-informed, considerate, quick to respond, and easy to work with. Justin also was very helpful in explaining details of the process, time-line, etc. in advance, and provided very clear and reliable information and advice whenever I posed a question or concern (even when I was not exactly sure what I was asking..). He also seemed to work quickly and efficiently. In all, Justin made a very challenging endeavor manageable and always made me feel confident that he was working in my best interests.

Thoroughly impressed
Mr Jacobson was knowledgeable, empathetic and compassionate. I have recommended his services to three of my coworkers that also hired him and were just as satisfied with their experience. He tells it like it is, and is a relentless advocate for his clients. Trust his advice - especially in family law. I only wish there were more like him. Thank you, Justin !

Knowledgeable and Kind
I never would have expected to describer my lawyer as kind (they're usually seen as cold and unrelatable). Justin is neither of those things. He's extremely knowledgeable and has been able to answer every question I've thrown at him. He is responsive and reliable and has been very empathetic to my situation (another quality you don't find much in lawyers). I would not hesitate to highly recommend Justin to anyone in need of his services.

Highly recommended
Prior to meeting Justin, I had met with several lawyers who previously blew off my unique situation without even listening to me fully. Justin was completely different - he spent time to really listen to me and provided exceptional guidance which ultimately led to significant, meaningful change to my situation. He is also a very easy going guy, easy to chat with and made the process painless. Would recommend him to anyone!

Divorce and separation Attorney | Mar 20
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Justin Jacobson is a tough opponent, while remaining professional and civil. He is board certified in marital and family law. He is an expert in his field. He is knowledgeable and a skilled litigator. While we hardly ever agree on matters because we are usually on opposing sides, I enjoy working against Justin because he is reasonable and logical. Any time I refer cases to another attorney due to a conflict, I always refer my clients to Justin Jacobson first. I would trust him with my friends and family if they were involved in a family law matter. I also appreciate his role as a mediator in my cases. Justin worked hard to get the parties to resolve their issues to avoid going to court."
