"SUPER HELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE"

As a family law attorney, I believe in crafting the right strategy for the right moment. Having grown up in a family of potters, mosaic workers, and auto repairmen, I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty and carefully consider the technical aspects of a case to keep it running smoothly.

I serve as both an advocate and a “translator” of my clients’ personal issues into “legalese” in order to guide them through the available options before a court. This often involves showing them what pitfalls to avoid. Some past clients have reported that they relied upon my candor, calm demeanor, and pragmatic views of their case, while others have reported that they appreciated my effectiveness in their hearings.

Over the years, the practice of family law become ever more technical. This means it’s become easier for a party to lose their case based on an unforeseen technicality. With this in mind, I've taken the time to become Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and I take additional courses each year to maintain membership in the Texas Bar College.

As a graduate of Baylor Law School and its rigorous “Practice Court” program, my goal is to always be ready for every eventuality and to be better prepared than those on the other side. That has resulted in many favorable rulings on behalf of my clients.

I have been named to Thomson Reuters’ annual list of Texas Rising Stars for the years 2018-2024, and I have received distinction in various publications including being named in 2024 to Law Dragon's listing of the "500 Leading Family Lawyers" in the United States and Thompson Reuters' "Up-and-Coming 100" list for the State of Texas. In law school, I was, along with my student partner Jack Hales, the winner of the prestigious Strasburger & Price Moot Court Competition.

I have experience in a range of family law matters, including divorce, child custody and support, property division, marital agreements, some appeals, enforcements, and much more. But I also have a wide breadth of experience handling matters that are not usually litigated or that invoke obscure provisions of the Texas Family Code, so I am ready to help clients with any family law dispute.

I would hire Jacob again
Jacob Jeffries was a beacon of hope during my contested divorce. His calm and empathetic demeanor talked me off the proverbial “ledge” more than once. My opinions were valued and each step of the process was explained. The office staff was always responsive, professional and friendly. I recommend Jacob and team without hesitation.

Excellent attorney for prenup
I'm a fellow attorney who has no experience in family law matters. I contacted Jacob and he was able to see me quickly. He helped me with my prenup and did truly an excellent job. Very good attorney and I definitely recommend him.

Super helpful and informative
Jacob helped me understand my options and my decree I had from several years ago. He went over different option on ways to proceed with looking into requesting full custody Never once did he seem pushy or try and push his service on me, like others in the industry have done. He gave me my options and told me that it might be best for me to wait a few years before moving forward. He helped with my passport question when it came to my decree, I will definitely be using him for any future child custody issues. I highly recommend him!

Jacob is a winner
Jacob was professional and informed. Thanks to his knowledge of the Texas leagal system I was awarded primary custody of my daughter. I always felt that I was a priority and was in the loop.

This man saved my bacon. And furniture, and my home,

Jacob got it done
Jacob and Jennifer were great to work with. They were always attentive to my needs and helped me through out the whole process to keep me focused on what was important. I couldn't have asked for a better team.

Best in Class
CokerLegal was there for my in one of the worst times in my life. Divorce is never an easy thing and Jacob and his group were beyond incredible in ensuring that the process was painless, that I was informed of the entire process and always available to answer any and all questions that I may have. I would highly recommend Jacob and his team for anything that you may need. From our initial consultation to the last correspondence noting that my case was completed everything was handled in the upmost professional way with compassion always being noticeable throughout the process. CokerLegal and everyone that I came in contact with at the firm was incredibly friendly and always helpful. Jacob, Shelby and Jennifer thank you for all of your help, you are all beyond incredible and I appreciate everything. Thank you.

Superb
Two and a half years ago, I was in the process of a divorce with an attorney who was so unprofessional that I asked her to withdraw from my case. I called Coker Legal and was directed to Jacob Jeffries for my specific case. Jacob and his assistant, Jennifer, were the best. Their response to e-mails and phone calls was immediate throughout the entire divorce process. I was treated with such respect and would highly recommend Jacob to anyone. So professional !!!

In matters of Family Law, you need the "A Team"
I got in touch with Jacob Jeffries and Jennifer Henson at Coker Legal to handle my divorce. The case had some serious complexities, and I needed an "A Team" attorney. I interviewed various other attorneys and firms and found all of them wanting. That's why I was so impressed with Jacob and Jennifer at Coker Legal. A clear, detailed plan was put together from our first meeting, and Jacob took his time ensuring I fully understood what I was getting into should I file for divorce from a legal, financial, and practical matter regarding my child. I paid him for that time - he is a professional, and I'm asking him for advice. It was the best $200 I ever spent. I felt the cost for services, and the billing was fair. I was kept up to date at all times on the progress of my case. I ended up getting precisely what I wanted out of the case. At all times my family and I were treated with the utmost respect. I would recommend this firm above the others, and would suggest you seriously consider paying them for a consultation if you find yourself needing help in a matter of Family Law.

Great lawyer
This law firm was wonderful! They listened to me and even counseled me at time when things got rough. I appreciate all the help, the calls and emails always being answered! Jacob fought for me and defended me in so many ways.They also really listened to me and my wants and needs all while keeping me level headed and realistic expectations. When he was busy his legal aid was right there helping me as well! Thank you for Coker legal and their team!

All the Best - Always!
Jacob Jeffries is an outstanding Attorney and an asset to the Coker Legal team. Jacob and his legal assistant, Jennifer Henson, were very understanding, responsive, patient, and courteous and professional during one of the most uncertain, uncomfortable and frightening times for my family. I contacted Coker Legal after finding a number of other Denton area attorneys had been“conflicted out” or flatly refused to assist with a divorce where there might be even a scintilla of a thought about reconciliation. It was exhausting and I began to think I would not find a lawyer willing to help. I am so glad I went to Coker Legal and met with Mr. Jeffries. He listened and clearly understood my concerns. He also educated me on the divorce process, outlined options for going forward, and stood ready for action regardless which direction my case would take. Having Mr. Jeffries and the Coker Legal team by my side gave me the security that I was protected, and much needed piece of mind in the confusion and emotions of divorce. I could not have asked for a better attorney who assisted me with legal guidance through such a stressful and difficult situation. Jacob and Jennifer, I sincerely appreciate all your help, compassion and the professionalism demonstrated in my case. I would definitely recommend Coker Legal to anyone I know needing legal representation in family law matters. And, should I have the need for family law services again, there is no question who I will call.
