Down to Earth well versed professional
Alan, was a pleasure to work with. His vast knowledge and understanding of our specific issues and how it pertains to Cook county and Chicago laws was priceless. He saved us so much time and the icing on the cake is that he is a ExMarine "Semper Fi." Always value working with former military whenever we can.

Excellent Attorney, Trustworthy, Dedicated & Honest
He was extremely confident in court. He was able to fight my case with all of his knowledge from being a police man himself and his extreme knowledge of the laws. He took time to make sure I understood options and was comfortable. I felt reassured immediately and knew I was in good hands. He is very personable, professional, and courteous. I wouldn't place my confidence in anyone besides Alan Jacob in the future.

Fought "the Man" and Won
I had an ongoing battle with Cook County regarding a fence I put up that they said was too tall for code. They issued me a violation and wanted me to remove my fence that i just paid a fortune to put up. Alan went to every court date, was on time and explained everything to me. He ran circles around the county and won my case for me. Turns out there was NO ACTUAL ORDINANCE ON THE HEIGHT OF FENCES and the county had been issuing tickets to people for god knows how long. Thanks Alan! I'll send everyone I know your way.

Do not make the mistake my wife and I did !
My wife and I hired Alan for a serious matter , an Order of protection case. First of he almost never answers his phone everything is through text. He gave us false information regarding our case and said that it was miscommunication. Then second time we literally caught him telling us one thing right before court and made us look stupid in front of a judge when a whole different thing was happening. We ended up agreeing to something we did not even understand, just because he put us in that situation. We are forced to look for a new lawyer now , pay new legal services, but hopefully this time it will be someone who is worth it. I highly suggest to stay away from this attorney because only thing You will get from him is a run around , lies and a waste of Your time and money.

Worst Lawyer ever
Avoid this guy I have a case with him. It's been 2 years. He never answers calls or text messages. I paid him more than half of what he asked. Not professional at all. I would never recommend him to anybody.
