ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!!
I relied on Jacie to help with a frivolous neighbor complaint. Jacie was instrumental in getting his claim dismissed. She knows the Court rules inside and out, and strikes a perfect balance between irreverence and respectful disagreement for dealing with ridiculous and frivolous claims. Her pretrial insights were invaluable, and her conduct during the hearing impressive. My neighbor's seasoned attorney had 15+ years more litigation experience than Jacie, but she danced circles around him, eliciting critical testimony from both the plaintiff and his witness. I am a senior-level attorney, and so am familiar with the various skills and competencies that fellow lawyers share -- Jacie is among the best. I first met Jacie in connection with a relative's criminal case (which she resolved favorably, without any record), and she impressed me then, as she impressed me now. I would not hesitate to hire her again should the need arise.

Very happy with Jacie
I hired Schill Law Group to defend against a felony charge. Jacie Cotterell was easy to talk to and worked quickly to get the charge dismissed. This was after another attorney at another law firm had quit on me when I refused to take a plea bargain that was no bargain. It matters who you hire, I recommend Jacie at Schill Law.

Best Lawyer in AZ
Jacie is a hell of a woman and an even better attorney. She has taken on all of our cases with no issue, headstrong, vigilant, and a fighter! We fell in love with the security she has provided with both myself and my significant other. Through each case she has given us hope, and a chance at renewal within our lives. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION, we are so happy to have been able to retain you as our lawyer. We would never go to anyone else. We retained her as our criminal defense lawyer more than once, and the outcome has been more than we could have asked for. Schill Law has an absolute GODSEND and BULLDOG on their team. She is by far the best one here. If you need someone on your team, it should be JACIE. We love you, woman! -Savannah and Anthony

Awesome Outcome!
Jacie did an extraordinary job on my behalf. She led me through my convoluted DUI court case with professionalism, aggressive competence and sensitivity regarding my issues. She is a great listener as well, yielding beyond anticipated results. I recommend her for anyone facing an "Extreme" ordeal like mine. Thanks Jacie!

A great and wonderful lawyer
We had just moved into a new neighbourhood and settling down and were constantly bothered by our new next door neighbor. There was always one thing after another and finally she filed a civil case saying our dog was vicious asking the county to put down our 4 year old German Shepherd since he had the nerve to go after another neighbor's dog as she was walking by in front of our house. There was no injury or a hair missing on anyone but that did not make any difference. The county came and took away our dog and gave us 15 days to prove otherwise or that our dog would be put down per the plaintiff's case. We learned about The Schill Law firm through a friend of ours and are so happy that we availed their services to represent us. We looked at their online reviews and their expertise in handling similar cases and thank the day we signed up with them. Once we explained to Jacie Cotterell the background of our case, not only was she able to understand what was happening with the neighbor but she was also quick in getting all the paper work in place to fight the case. She was available via email, text and phone whenever we had any questions. She was well prepared on the day of hearing and presented all our supporting testimonials in a professional manner and was able to get the witnesses to present facts as they saw it. She tore through the plaintiff's arguements and really made them come off as having a frivilous case. Needless to say the plaintiff's petition was dismissed and we got our dog back safe and sound. We would strongly recommend the Schill Law group to all our friends and family members should the need arise.

Jacie is Amazing!
Yesterday I observed a hearing at which Jacie Cotterell defended a beautiful four year old German Shepard guard dog. She arrived with her many exhibits after hours of preparation and love of animals who rarely have a voice in a courtroom. In Arizona, all dogs are treated as Capital cases, so this wonderful creature faced life or death! Today the Judge ruled on behalf of the dog, and he is again united with his owners and his two legged family members and many friends who have waited anxiously for this good news! Jacie, if you read this, you have pleaded a case so eloquently that I thought I’d cry! Now, I am relieved and so happy to see justice done for a family who was blessed to have you defend their precious pet and protector! Congratulations!!! You are the best! Barbara in Phoenix, Arizona

Excellent, Competent and Honest
Jacie got the best possible outcome for my DUI conviction. 3 charges dropped, lowest fees possible and 1 day credit on my jail time for time served. She is honest and up front. No fluff, just the facts. I highly recommend her. And God forbid I ever need a lawyer again, I will be calling her. Thank you!

Excellent Attorney
Consistent, transparent, and extremely effective. Jacie offers a wide network of connections within the legal community in Arizona because she is a former prosecutor. We hired her under her firm for my drug offense and the minute we met at the court house she was greatly comforting. Given the apprehension criminal charges can cause, this was invaluable. She offers a genuine comedic relief to tense atmospheres. My husband and I would absolutely recommend Jacie as a terrific attorney and hugely effective in criminal defense. We just want to thank her so much for solving a huge problem we faced. Thank you!!
