Attorney Sackett was wonderful to work with considering the circumstances I was facing. He was eager to meet with me after I had initially contacted him with my legal issue. I was able to schedule an appointment in person shortly after speaking with him. He was a great listener and communicator. Mr. Sackett was upfront with me regarding what could potentially happen with my case. He laid out and explained the worst case scenario and the best case scenario - he was very realistic and supportive in how he presented his thoughts and advice. Anytime I had questions, and felt I needed to speak with him, he was very prompt in returning my messages if I could not immediately reach him. Eventually, my case (2 criminal misdemeanor charges) was dropped approximately two months after hiring Mr. Sackett.
Mr. Sackett was very knowledgeable and sincere. I was very pleased to have hired him, and would do so again should I ever need his great legal guidance. His sincerity and experience have left a long-lasting impression, and this is why I strongly recommend his legal services to anyone in need!

Mr. Sackett managed to get my third dui arrest dismissed. Throughout the entire process he was knowledgeable, realistic yet positive, and informative.

He was the first lawyer to get back to me when I was in need of one, and seemed very eager to help me with my case. He always kept me updated on my case, without me having to contact him first. I always felt very comfortable and welcomed when walking into his office. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer!

Mr. Sackett was given a really tough case when I came to him for help and exceeded all of my expectations in the lengths he went to in order to see me come out on the winning side. Everything didn't exactly go my way in the end, but more than enough did to leave me walking away with my head held high in the face of a broken judicial system.
Mr. Sackett in an incredibly knowledgeable attorney who not only comes to court prepared, but makes you feel like you're his one and only client. He may be a little forgetful from time to time, but it never had anything to do with official case information nor put me in jeopardy of losing my case at any point.

From the moment of my initial inquiry to him regarding my case Mr. Sackett made me feel like I was his only client. Although my case was only traffic related, he understood that it was viewed by myself as a serious situation. I had the experience of communicating with him in all forms, via telephone, email, and mail. His communications to me were clear, truthful, and not a plethora of legal jargon. As another review stated, he provided me with both the best and worst case scenarios. Mr. Sackett's fee's are more than fair, for his services it is "the best bang for your buck." Additionally, his previous experience with the State's Attorney's office should not be overlooked. Mr. Sackett's knowledge of the "other side" is valuable and his networks work to your benefit. I would not hesitate to do business with him again and consider him as my attorney if needed in the future.

Jeremy is is a highly-respected lawyer in our community, as many other attorneys would say. I've worked on certain matters with Jeremy before, and I have also been opposing counsel to him. In each instance, he was very diligent as to his client's case, as well as being very respectful to all parties. I would highly recommend Jeremy Sackett.

Jeremy and I were on opposite sides when he was a prosecutor, we even tried a Jury misdemeanor case with Judge Napp, and he was talented and fair. Since he has been in private practice we see each other and I am sure he is helping his clients in a meaningful way. I endorse this lawyer.
