Weight (and case) lifted off my shoulders!!!!
After getting arrested by your typical inner city cops( no rights read, no probable cause, lying under oath brutes) and thrown in Cook County (hell on earth), for a week to raise my bond money, even when i got out I was scared and didn't know what to do. I I knew that going with the public defender would me and me taking a felony charge (my first) after talking to Jeff I felt like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders!I felt better than when I left the jailhouse. I finally felt like there was a chance. And lo and behold my court case was dismissed on the preliminary hearing due to the work and knowledge of Jeff. I have had many lawyers in the past, even my dad is a lawyer, and I can say that Jeff is a spectacular attorney and I would recommend him, with his consent of course, to any of my close friends or family who need help, with any law problems really. He goes in to cases to win, and if he doesn't think he'll win, and he is all about WINNING!

The best lawyer in town!
I was involved in a dispute that threatened my career and my ability to continue my higher education. I hired Jeff to resolve the matter after receiving positive feedback about him from a friend. I could not be happier with my choice. As this matter was of high importance, I engaged a number of attorneys, prior to hiring Mr. Jacobs. During my research with the other attorneys, I was led to believe that the arbitration process could take quite a while to resolve. I was also led to believe that the outcome may not have been everything that I expected. As it turned out, hiring the right lawyer made all the difference. Prior to the 1st meeting, Jeff took the time to inform me of the outcomes that I could realistically expect. Jeff arrived at the meeting with the knowledge, confidence, and expertise that was required. After Jeff argued my case, I was offered more than I asked for, because the opposing party’s attorney advised their client that doing so would benefit them. My arbitration was successfully completed during the 1st meeting! When I went to pick up the final paperwork from the opposing party’s attorney, he spoke highly of Jeff’s skills and told me that I was lucky to have him. Thank you Jeff!

LOOK NO FURTHER
I had received my second ticket for DUI within 45 days when Mr. Jacobs took on my case, which was eventually dismissed thanks to Mr. Jacobs time, effort, and research on my case. He was clearly very knowledgeable of the legalities of my situation. This was proven throughout my case by the thorough review he performed on my police report. It clearly indicted that Mr. Jacobs had read through the report noting responses and profound word choices by the officer who wrote the report. Mr. Jacobs reviewed with me the report and his questions to the arresting officer before we went in the court room, each court date. He was patient and consistent with me on my concerns and questions regarding my case. If ever I was in need of a defense attorney for this or another circumstance, I would first go to Jeffery Jacobs with my case.

Foreclosure Intervention
My sister was a day away from being homeless. Out of desperation, we contacted Attorney Jacobs for help. We explained her situation in detail and the following day he appeared at the foreclosure proceeding. Pleading her case the Judge, he was able to stop the process, allowing more time for her to find and procure housing. Attorney Jacobs was not only knowledgeable, professional and receptive, but we felt he truly cared.

Response from Jeffrey Jacobs August 20, 2014
As always I appreciate any reviews and am glad that I received a 5 star overall excellent rating. However, I think that the author became confused and thought 1 star was better then 5 in all the other categories. This woman's home was set to go up for auction that day in the afternoon after the final court appearance that morning. I was contacted the day before at 4pm, rushed to the clerks office to review the file and appeared the next morning. I was able to stop the foreclosure and auction that afternoon as the rules of civil procedure were not correctly followed. She was overjoyed and remained in her home for over a year without paying a dime allowing her to save money and find a new place to reside. Understanding that she clearly had no money, I handled her case pro bono and was happy to have helped someone in such dire need. Today, she is in a new residence and back on her feet. Great result, for which she has thanked me for often.

Simply the best.
Jeff was simply amazing. Kept me in the loop with everything before my court date. While at court he was a true professional. His confidence and knowledge could be seen by everyone.

Knowledgeable and Honest
Mr. Jacobs worked on two cases for me. In both situations he kept me totally informed and his presentation of the facts and his research were explained to me in laymen's terms. I had strong confidence in his ability to represent my interests in both cases, and I was not disappointed. He demonstrated honesty, integrity and compassion to me and the others involved in the cases. I would have absolutely no hesitation in giving Mr. Jacobs a strong recommendation. If he does not believe he can do the best job for you, he will tell you that and refer you elsewhere. He will not just take your money and not care if he can give a strong presentation of your case. He cares about his clients and wants to give his best to every case. I appreciate the opportunity to share this review with anyone who reads it.

Don't go into court alone to be deprived of your rights. I recommend hiring Jeff Jacobs 100%.
I recently hired Jeff Jacobs to represent me in a courtroom where I felt I was treated wrongly. A public defender was appointed but never stood with me or spoke for me. I was not allowed to speak either. After hiring Jeff the judge and social services worker showed me some respect. It felt good to take care of my case and show I was doing all that was necessary to move forward in the case and with my life. I truly believe Jeff does all he can for his clients. He will keep you informed on anything pertaining to your case, and he will tell it like it is.
