Review of services received
We hired Jacob to represent us as a family. He was fantastic, and I am not just trying to toot his horn. He was very affordable. He did exactly what he was hired to do. He never made us feel like we were wasting his time. He did the best he could for us, and we are very happy with his service. we would definitely recommend him to anyone an attorney like this is hard to find. Thank you Jacob

I hired Jacob to handle a "sticky" situation that my daughter was dealing with. From the get go, he made things happen. She had her day in court yesterday and we couldn't have asked for a better turn out! I would highly recommend going with a experienced, thoughtful lawyer, that would Jacob Starkovich for sure!

Case of Pit Bull Privacy
I am pleased recommend Mr. Jacob Starkovich Attorney at Law. After questioning and asking at least 7 lawyers to help us, Mr. Jacob Starkovich accepted the case. He was a good listener and very understanding. He was knowledgeable of the law and appeared to every single court hearing. He kept us informed on what the next step was, as well as, what to expect from the prosecution. He is cooperative and cheerful. Thank you!

Fantastic Lawyer!
Jacob defended me on a bogus Careless Driving ticket. He said he would work hard for me and did a very good job. My past experiences with a couple of other lawyers, they did not seem to care. Jacob did! Jacob was able to get my case dismissed. I would not hesitate to hire Jacob again. Thank you Jacob!

Very professional and knowledgeable
He is an amazing lawyer that honestly listens to you. I went to a few other lawyers and with my case because of the videos the others lawyers saw automatically wanted me to take a ple deal even though I knew that other videos exists and I kept insisting that they did. Not only did Mr Starkovich believe me but he continued to fight to get the other videos that the "alleged" victim was hiding and the ones that the " victim" tampered with. And when the "victim" lied in court Mr Starkovich reminded them that in the restraining order trial the " victim" who was really the aggressor admitted that such video did infact exists. And like magic a 3rd video was turned over that showed that I was telling the truth the entire time. It showed the aggressor attack me like I even told the police on the day it happened. Now I'm not saying that the cops didn't do their jobs. But the aggressor set the videos up for them to watch bit they left out what the aggressor did to me. Ok I got off point. Mr Starkovich treated me like a friend and spoke in the way that anyone who doesn't speak lawyer could understand. I would recommend Mr Starkovich to anyone who finds themselves unjustly charged with a crime. This is a man who truly loves being a lawyer and a lawyer like that is hard to find. He treated me with dignity and respect. He answered any questions or concerns I had. At the end the charges were dropped because he saw exactly what I told him happened. They tried to set me up and he called BS on Them. I can't thank Mr Starkovich enough. He is a man who cares about his clients and what is right and wrong.

Jacob is the best!!
Jacob was extremely professional and helpful from the beginning to end. His 20 years of experience shows. He kept me up to date on my case and provided me advice and answered all my questions. He made what was a stressful situation pain free. He was able to get my charges to a minimum and I could not ask for more. I will highly recommend Jacob for any legal matters.

Client Review of Jacob Starkovich
I found Jacob to be focused, precise and organized. He identified the time and cost to successfully conclude my case which he did on time and within budget. He was polite, honest, informative, and an excellent communicator throughout the legal process. We are planning on having lunch together upon my return from Boston area to Denver area even though there is probably 40 years difference in our ages. I would recommend his services to anyone in mind of his expertise.

Jacob made sure he did his research and knew the background of everything on the case. He also made sure he was direct and straight forward in trial and did not hesitate to correct or fight a little more to be heard. He was AMAZING..

Thank you once again! Excellent Job!
I Highly Recommend Jacob as an attorney!!!, With-in the very limited time Frame Jacob had to work on my case as well as assigned to my case? Jacob waisted no time to research What he would be able to use in state law that would be a strong defense in my behalf. Jacob Communicated very well, listened to my side and heard the truth and was to identify the alleged Victim was lying and was seeking a revenge that had been misleading by assumption, and was able to provide solid proof . Jacob paid very close attention to detail, was Clean, respectful, Friendly, and Was on time. Jacob actually cares about his clients constitutional rights not to be violated. Jacob Doesn't sugar coat the Severity of the outcome of the case, But will Fight for his Client Even if The odds are against him. I may have lost at my trial, I was looking at a minimum 2 year jail sentence, Jacob Reduced my jail sentence to 58days. Jacob Only Had Less than a month to work on my case, and I was very impressed with Performance as my attorney. I have no doubt in my mind that had Jacob been assigned to me Sooner in my case and If I had actually gotten a fair trial, ya known with a jury of my peers, and a judge that wasn't bi-est already before trial. the Judge would have ruled in My behalf and the case would have been dismissed

Jacob is a real Star Attorney
Jacob did a great job in handling my DUI case. He went above and beyond to get my case resolved in just one court appearance. I was moving out of state and he got the judge to agree to let me complete all my court requirements out of state . i would definitely recommend Jacob and if I ever have the need for an attorney I will call on Jacob to represent me.

Hunting Sportsman
I had an Issue with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Jacob, being a hunter himself, was very knowledgeable about my situation and how to handle the legal proceedings. It is nice to have a lawyer that understands the situation. He and his office are very prompt about returning calls and emails and I feel offer a very good service. I feel that his rates are very reasonable. I will recommend Jacob's attorney services. Scott

Domestic Violence Case
Jacob Starkovick is an awesome lawyer who guided me in a time of need. I've researched so many lawyers as to who could take my case and many was too high and not willing to receive a payment arrangement. Mr. Jacob was the only lawyer that allowed me to make payment arrangements. The case that I was up against was dismissed with the help of Jacob. If you need a good lawyer Jacob will definitely fight for you!!!!

"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Jacob for several years. He was a prosecutor at the time and I was, and still am, a defense attorney. Even as a prosecutor, he cared about people. Unlike a lot of prosecutors, his focus was not just to get a conviction. He brings that same level of caring and compassion to his clients. I strongly endorse Jacob."
