Rather than compose something specifically for folks looking for an attorney on this site, I've posted below the message I sent Ms. Jacobs after my divorce concluded. As you can see, I highly recommend Ms. Jacobs to represent you. She is simply marvelous.
"I can't thank you enough for taking me through this. Keeping me grounded rather than letting my emotions speak made me a pain, I know. It was somewhat necessary and I'm sure expected. But you handled it perfectly. I apologize for being a pain.
I came to you in this process primarily because of your "sounds like you need a creative attorney" response to my question posted on Avvo. But that just opened the door. In our initial meeting, I sensed you'd be best for me in all aspects. Up to that point, the barristers with who I consulted were men, each of who essentially stated the law and did so with a bit of testosterone oozing out. Made me feel like I was at the drive-thru window at McDonalds. I feel as though I dined at a 5-star sit-down restaurant with you. The service was extraordinary and the meal was excellent! I'll say it again--You're the best. Thank you!

Ms. Jacobs helped me with my uncontested divorce and parenting plan. After the divorce my ex-husband refused to pay for things he was ordered to pay for as part of the divorce/child support and to obtain various insurances for himself and our child. As a result of his contempt, I hired Ms. Jacobs again to help me with the contempt of court and the change to the parenting plan. Ms. Jacobs is extremely detailed oriented and a seasoned professional. Throughout the entire process (both of them) she was responsive to my inquiries, offered great legal advice and overall just a pleasure to work with during a difficult time. I have worked in the criminal justice system for 20 years and know what a difference a good/professional/knowledgeable attorney can do to protect their client and obtain the best possible outcome. Ms. Jacobs did that for me in the family court system. When we went to the final hearing with the judge she was prepared, articulate and seemed to be able to anticipate the judges questions and concerns. Overall, she did a fantastic job and I highly recommend Ms. Jacobs.

For me to give a review of Mrs. Jacobs , is an honor in itself. I have used Mrs. Jacobs on several occasions and her work has been above and beyond. I will say that this is the best money ever spent on an attorney. Not only have I used her, my friends have trusted my judgement and used her and share the same feelings as myself.
To the readers of this review, if you are in need of an honest hard working attorney, please consider Mrs. Jacobs; she will not let you down.
