Custody Case
Sarah did amazing with my case. She was the second lawyer we hired and she did everything I hoped for. Her and her paralegals were quick to respond in any situation and she went out of her way to get a motion for court going. I wouldn't recommend anyone else in the state of Wyoming when it comes to a custody case! Sarah was profession, on the ball, and always looking out for mine and my son best interest.

Divorce Decree Appeal
This was a tough case to begin with. Sarah Jacobs-Manwarren was not our first attorney, she handled the appeal process. It was a year and a half long appeal. Every step of the way she was upfront and straight with us on what to expect. We are extremely happy with the outcome of this case. I will recommend her law firm to anyone that is needing a great family court attorney.

great lawyer with big heart
Sarah was amazing. Very dependable, smart, caring and generous. She helped my daughter through a nasty divorce case and wasn't afraid to act quickly as needed to help her. She amazed me as to how much she knew about everything we asked her. Even after the divorce was final, she and her staff stayed by my daughter's side making sure she had all she needed even to the point of helping her move her things out. Sarah and her staff are definitely devoted to their clients' needs and interests. Thank you very much Sarah and staff.

Excellent divorce lawyer!
At the time we hired Sarah I also had a criminal attorney and an attorney to help with my children. Sarah jumped on board and immediately reached out to my other attorneys to make sure that whatever she did in my divorce case wouldn't negatively affect my 2 other cases. Sarah knew when to sit back and wait and when to charge forward full speed. No matter when I needed her, she was right there. I knew that Sarah would always have the answer. I trust her fully. Sarah is a bull dog in court and I feel sorry for any lawyer having to go against her! I thanked the Lord alot for sending Sarah my way! In the end, I was granted a divorce and received FULL custody of my children!!! Thank you again Sarah!! I would highly recommend Sarah Jacobs!

Money WELL spent!!!
I don't normally write reviews, but Ms. Jacobs was my Attorney for over two years and she did an absolutely amazing job. I've had to hire other attorneys before, but they weren't like Ms Jacobs.... Ms Jacobs has a very personal and caring demeanor. I ALWAYS felt like my case was more than "just a job" and I was more than simply "just a client". Her actions over the last two years proved that the outcome, my LIFE, truly mattered to her. Never once did I question how hard she was going fight for me, she proved it time and time again. While I understand I wasn't her only client, she always responded to emails or returned my phone calls in a very timely manner. She always thought of and made time to ask my input or how I felt about things BEFORE doing them. In addition to Ms. Jacobs, she a remarkable staff as well, who embody the same caring and helpful traits as she does. I absolutely would, without question, recommend Ms Jacobs to anyone...well, almost anyone ;-) Thank you, Sarah, for all that you've done for me and for my family!!!

I hadn't seen my kids in almost a year and Ms. Jacobs did an amazing job and got me custody of them! So impressed with the determination and confidence she had in the courtroom. Would strongly recommend her to anyone struggling to get custody!

Sarah Jacobs has provided myself and my children the security and confidence we looked for and needed when choosing an attorney. I highly recommend Sarah Jacobs and have recommended to friends who have experienced the same wonderful treatment. Office staff is amazing and kind. Sarah is realistic, efficient, knowledgeable and aggressive when needed... Nobody goin' to bulldoze this one. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I would recommend Sarah to anyone. Well, anyone I want to be fairly represented! Sarah not only knows what she's doing, she will tell you things straight, and she is a real person, not someone who looks down their nose at you. I'm so grateful for what she has done for me & I can rest easy knowing if I need her again she is there.
