Mr. Thomas met with me on extremely short notice and provided me with the legal counsel that I desperately needed. I was approaching the end of a contract that I believed to be shady, (it demanded a high contract-breaking fee), and I wanted to know if it was legal to hold me to the amount given my current situation. Mr. Thomas walked me through three different avenues of contract termination without providing a bias towards any. When I sought his personal opinion, the choice ended up being the one that was in my best interest. I highly recommend Mr. Jacob Thomas; he is a gentleman and a scholar and I will definitely rely on his services in the future.

Over the past 5 years I have retained or consulted with Jacob D. Thomas on three separate occasions. One of the consultation was to seek a second opinion of a legal matter being handled by one of the large Dallas firms. While representing my interest Mr. Thomas exceeded expectations and quickly resolved a pending legal issue. I have met with Mr. Thomas in his law office, and felt that he was totally engaged in the issue at hand. I have also spoken with Mr. Thomas via telephone regarding negotiations of a settlement in a legal matter. All encounters with Mr. Thomas have been prompt, professional and comfortable. Mr. Thomas is intelligent and has a strong grasp of the law and provides explanations clearly and precise. Impressive factor when dealing with Mr. Thomas is his prompt response to messages and focus on where the legal issue currently stands, not necessary to "refresh" him each time you speak. In thirty years of private business I have dealt with many attorneys, Mr. Thomas rates among the best. Mr. Thomas had the respect of opposing counsel which I felt was helpful in settling my legal issues out of court. He also clearly articulated the path of the legal issue and the progression should a settlement not have been reached. In my case Mr. Thomas was well versed on the pending legal issue and able to quickly point out what issues were not valid by the opposing parties. As I stated in my title Mr. Thomas provides the highest quality of legal advice and representation. As well Mr. Thomas is easy to communicate with and genuinely concerned about the outcome of the case and his client. Should I need legal representation in the future I would certainly contact Mr. Thomas.

Jacob did everything he said he would and more. He made me feel at ease during a very trying time. He kept telling me "don't you worry, that's what you have me for". I put my problems in his hands and he took great care of me. I hope I never have to go through that type of situation again but if I ever do, Jacob will be the first one I call.

Jacob is a an experienced and knowledgeable trial lawyer who easy to work with. He has provided me with creative solutions to end lawsuits at early stages, thus minimizing the client's expense. He's also a damn good legal writer, which is a rare quality for many litigators.
