excellent attorney
Although we never had the privilege of meeting Jeremy in person, he was always readily available to talk on the phone, text and e-mail. Our case took one week to resolve and we were in contact at a minimum of once a day. Jeremy was very patient and helpful since we are not very knowledgeable when it comes to using a computer and other technical things. He was very personable, professional and detail oriented. We were so grateful for his help and highly recommend his services.

Jeremy has done legal work for us various times over the last five to ten years. He has handled contract litigation and general business matters, as well as, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act defense work for our business. Additionally, he has acted as our general counsel in many situations. I have always found Jeremy to be knowledgeable and competent regarding many business matters. He has excellent research skills and strives to find the best solution to his client's legal issues. He has always been responsive and communicative and worked hard to address of our legal concerns. He is trustworthy and honest and I would strongly recommend Jeremy for your legal needs.

Drivers Insurance Ticket
May of 2012, I had been driving without auto insurance and was caught in St. Paul. Jeremy was the one who actually reached out to me after hearing about my situation from word of mouth. When I met with Jeremy he spelled out the details of my ticket, what I could expect to happen, and the best rout we could take in moving forward. After we met with a hearing officer, he was able to get my ticket dumped down a considerable amount, along with having the charge bumped down; which saved me from having to move out of the group living I was in, which also resulted in saving me hundreds over the months that followed. Jeremy Cobb is an upright professional, and handles his cases with integrity, respect, and promptness. He was considerate to me and the situation I was in, and I confidently recommend Jeremy for any case.

Bankruptcy attorney excellence
Jeremy was of great counsel in filing my bankruptcy. He takes the time to answer questions, and if there is something he isn't sure of, he is willing to go above and beyond to provide the answer. I had a complex case that many other attorneys wouldn't do. Thanks to the help of Jeremy, I'm free of excessive debt, and able to have a fresh start. If your looking for a great attorney that offers a great value for his services I would recommend contacting him. He is professional, polite, easy to communicate with, and a great listener who will do whats in your best interest. Thank you Jeremy !
