I had a consultation with Jacob about a wrongful termination. He took the time to explain my options and offer his realistic assessment. He followed up with me by email and was very professional and caring. I decided not to move forward, but if I did need to hire an employment lawyer, I would hire Jacob.

I called Jacob about a claim against an old employer who still owes me money, although he was not interested in taking my case he was very generous to spend over 15 minutes with me on the phone, not only giving legal advice but also letting me know what to watch out for with other attorneys etc. I felt he was honest and fair and gave me the ups and downs of all my options. I did not have extensive experience with him, but from the short time I did talk to him, I would recommend his services.
I had retained attorney Sider due to harassment at my job. It was a difficult situation and I reluctantly decided that I was not ready to leave my job without a new job and that it would be difficult for me to negotiate a severance agreement at that time.
About two weeks later, I found out I was losing my rented home due to the owner selling and that my job didn't pay enough, nor was it secure enough to sign a year lease at a new place. I new I had to leave then. I e-mailed him and left him a phone message asking him if he could assist me. For no good reason, he sent me a curt e-mail saying that he declined and that I had "disengaged" his services.
His response left me in the lurch and made me feel like I had done something wrong. NOT OKAY AT ALL.

Mr. Sider aided me in taking on my multi million dollar employer. I was scared and intimidated to say the least. It was a very difficult time for my family and I. Mr. Sider did not over promise nor did he back down. He asked me what I wanted and what I thought was fair. He kept me informed at all times and in the end we prevailed! All in all he is the only honest attorney I have met to date! To be quite frank ..... He is "damn good!" He took on multiple corporate attorneys without flinching and called their bluff every time. I am greatful for his hard work!

Jacob gave me some excellent consultation on some questions I had for a new position I am accepting. Being able to run through some points of concern was extremely helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to contact Jacob again in the future.

After having an incident with my disability and letting the ( former ) company know that I had to excuse myself for the rest of the day, due to my disability, the company thought it was a great idea to fire me the following day.
Shocked and distraught, I called a few lawyers, many of which did not want to take my case due to the short time working with the company,
Finally got a call back from Jacob and he was able to resolve the matter and get me something for my troubles. A very good amount for my time spent at the company and all of this was done with just a few letters going back and forth with the company's lawyer. He was very knowledgeable and talked with me straight and direct, like a good friend will do. He told me realistically what the outcome could be ( financially ). I like a lawyer who talks direct and does not make me feel just like another client. I really felt like he was fighting for a friend.
I highly recommend Jacob Sider to represent you for your troubles as he knows what he is doing.

I was referred to Jacob by another firm that only took larger cases. I was reeling from just having been unexpectedly fired from a job of 3 1/2 years. Loyalty, sacrifice, and hard work means nothing to some companies as they neglect the legal labor requirements for their employees.
My first conversation with Jacob helped me sort out the facts of my case and he quickly versed me on all of the labor laws that were broken. I felt comfortable and empowered to stand up for myself with an attorney who was both experienced and confident. Although I was reassured that he would do the best possible job, Jacob always made it clear that all decisions to go forward with any option were mine and he patiently described realistic outcomes of each.
He communicated with me by phone or email almost daily until the day of our meeting with the Labor Commissioner. I had not met him until that day but his easy style made me confident that we would present my case well. During the meeting, Jacob cited facts to answer the defendant's attempts to discredit me. Needless to say, we walked away winning my case and I felt vindicated for standing up to my former employer.
I will forever be in Jacob's graces for allowing me to feel victory....the money was not the end goal, the principle of being the first person to call this employer out on their smug practices would have been enough. However, winning my case has allowed me to put this sour chapter behind me and enables me to look back smiling!
