My Attorney
Mr. Olsen is a great lawyer. He worked on my divorce quickly and efficiently. He was very quick to respond to any questions or emails I had for him. His office staff is very kind and knowledgeable when it comes to legal questions as well in case Jared was unable to answer. He is a very caring person and I felt like I wasn't just another client to him, that I actually meant something as well as my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Very Competent Professional
My divorce situation was rather complicated, with husband, wife and children living in different countries. We had a very long initial conversation and by the time we met, Jared had an excellent battle plan. I was surprised because I came to see on a Monday morning and by Monday afternoon he filed the divorce petition. Two and half momths later I got the divorce decree. WY is a great jurisdiction for getting a divorce and I was fortunate to find a lawyer that can be flexible in his approach and deliver good results.

I would use Jared's services again in the future.
I hired Jared to facilitate a divorce for me. Although it took longer than we anticipated it ended well for both parties. He was very knowledgeable about how to make the divorce fair for both parties. He helped to protect my businesses and all in all I would recommend his services for anyone looking for a good lawyer.

Great!!
He's a great lawyer. He's not a lawyer that cares only about money but rather the well being of those he represent. He helped me to fight a case that could have potentially ruined my military career but with his help and the way he went about the case during our consultation and with his high level of thinking and being able to think quick and smart in tight spots he was able to help keep me in the military. He doesn't judge he knows how to think from different angles and see something in a case that will help win it for you. He's a lawyer who will put all cards on the table and be open and honest and is a very well time giving man. He's not about rushing you, he's very patient and very fair. --if you're looking for a lawyer whose about you, whose about honesty, and will give you the time you need then he's the lawyer for you.

Excellent, thorough, and thoughtful
Jared assisted us with a case involving a visitation and adoption dispute involving my son. Jared listened to us. He also did his best to take our specific concerns and thoughts and implement them into our legal plan. He seems to know the law very well, and when he didn't have an immediate answer, he would consult or research to find the answer. He did everything we needed him to do and more. He had very good ideas about how to solve our problem. His legal filings for us were very thorough, timely, and clear. His communication with us was excellent and put us at ease throughout the process. We would recommend him to anyone.

Affidavit of Survivorship
Service provided was very good but paperwork that was to be file and returned on a stated date was way later than promised. Went in several times and was not ready.
Response from Jared Olsen September 29, 2017
Thank you for the positive comment on the paperwork we prepared for you being good. I remember your file and sympathize with the tardiness of the County Clerk's office in returning your recorded affidavit. I remember taking you in as a client on August 2 and preparing the affidavit of survivorship the next day for your signature. You needed the affidavit quickly so we put your file at the top of our list in priority. You returned to the office in the afternoon on August 3 and signed the affidavit. We recorded the affidavit with the County Clerk the very next day on August 4. Your copy of the recorded affidavit was then returned from the County Clerk's office on August 14. Again, I deeply sympathize that it took the County Clerk 10 days to return your copy. I truly believed they would return your copy quicker than 10 days, as they are generally very quick. I remember you stopping in several times between the date we filed (Aug 4) and the date they returned it (Aug 14) checking in to see if it was ready. I hope you understand that after Aug 4 when we filed your affidavit, it was in the County Clerk's hands and we had no control on when your copy was to be returned to our office. I wish I could change that for you, and many of my clients, but I simply cannot control how fast or slow the County Clerk mails out its copies. Rest assured that your affidavit was timely recorded on August 4 which was less than 24 hours after you signed the document in my office. I will work with the County Clerk's office to encourage them to pursue a more timely process in processing and returning paperwork. Please contact my office if there is anything we can do for you.
