I have known Don for close to 30 years. He has always been extremely professional, well versed, honest and ethical. I've been a client of his and no doubt will be again as well as a person who referred business to him and he has always represented himself and his practice with the utmost of professionalism, courtesy, and knowledge. He has my unqualified recommendation.

Don Jacobs is without a doubt one of the finest lawyers that I have ever known. He is one of a select few that I have trusted to handle my personal legal matters. He is exceptionally intelliigent and highly ethical. He has an attention to detail that is unsurpassed.

We requested Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, Living Will and Health Care Surrogate legal documentation to be drafted based on our rather uncertain desires for eventual satisfaction of our personal final decisions.
Attorney Jacobs stipulated a fee, arranged a personal interview with us in quiet, comfortable office, and comperhensibly briefed us on the broad ramifications of end of life legal documentation and the decisions to be made by each of us. He followed the interview some days later in another informal meeting when our ideas were finalized and personalized in documents he later developed.
In the third and final session, again in a quiet, comfortable office, Attorney Jacobs explained in detail the documents put before us, introduced us to competent witnesses he had arranged to be present and guided us through each document, our approval of each document, the formal signing and witnessing of each document while responding objectively to any questions we offered.
As we would say in the Navy; Well Done, Attorney Jacobs!
We highly recommend Attorney Donald F. Jacobs to all needing legal counsel.
