Highly Recommend
Unfortunately I had to go through a divorce, but fortunately Rachel Jacobson was my attorney. Rachel has an exceptional knowledge of the law, and always took time to listen and communicate. At every turn when I was willing to settle for less, she was there to advise me of what was allowed within the law, and what was in my best interest as well. Interaction with her staff (Isaac), was always professional, courteous, and thorough.

Perhaps the best family law attorney in the state of Nevada
When did you ever go to an attorney, and have a good experience? My dealings with Rachel were met with wisdom, compassion, and control. Her staff was friendly, and updated on the conditions of the project at hand.. I couldn't recommend anyone higher than this thoughtful attorney.. She really does know her stuff.

Child Relocation and custody
When I met Rachel during consultation, I knew I wanted her to help me and my son get the courts approval to relocate back to CA. Rachel is very professional, compassionate, understanding and she really fought hard for us. My situation was very difficult, due to a very biter ex-husband, but she did not allow him or his counsel overpower her. She stood up for my rights and had an incredible argument at trial. We had 3 days of trial and her closing argument was fantastic. I would highly recommend her!

Genuine & Excellent
Rachel assisted me with my divorce and custody in 2013. She was very genuine and made me realize that I didn't have to settle for less time when it came to my son. She fought for me and made sure that I got what was fair and in the best interest of my son.

Professional and Understanding
Rachel was able to help me though a very difficult family case even as I was in living in another state. She understood exactly what I was looking for, gave me all of my available options and supported me throughout the process. Her calm and collected demeanor and ability to communicate with difficult opposing counsel is remarkable. She has over-the-top communication skills and kept me well informed of my case considering the distance and time difference. Rachel takes very good care of her clients and makes sure that they are getting what they need and does a fantastic job at setting appropriate expectations. Working with Rachel was the best decision I made going into a challenging case and I would call on her again, if needed. I highly recommend Rachel!

Highly Recommended
Attorney Rachel Jacobson has been my most memorable experience working with a lawyer. A divorce can be an extremely sensitive and painful experience, but thankfully Rachel was not only my chosen attorney to consult with, she was also a compassionate friend. Her ability to use her knowledge in order to smooth out a rough experience demonstrates her professional talents along with her upstanding character. My phone calls and inquiries were always answered with full attention, and resolution. Rachel gives accurate assessments, practical advice, and puts her clients’ best interests first. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know.

Great family law lawyer
Reli met with me and my wife for a consult dealing with a change in my custody agreement between my ex-wife and me. She sat with us for over an hour, then answered numerous phone calls reviewing emails and giving me advise. With her assistance, I was able to come to an agreement with my ex without having to go to court or lose my ability to be with my children. Thanks Reli

Excellent and caring attorney
Ms. Jacobson became involved in my case within 4 days of a serious car accident. She immediately handled the issue of my totaled car on which I still had a loan. She not only asked questions but she encouraged my participation and always returned calls and answered every question and concerns. As my case was medically complicated she also brought in an attorney who was an expert in medically complicated cases to ensure I had the best possible representation. I have no reservations referring her to anyone as she is a caring, compassionate and professional attorney.
