Amazing attorney and master of his craft
Ben Jacob is a true professional and master of his craft. His work ethic, knowledge of the law, and dedication to his clients is amazing. He is responsive, easy to talk with, compassionate, and will fight to get the best possible outcome. I researched several law firms and interviewed one other attorney before deciding to go with Jacob Law Firm. Mr. Jacob reviewed all the facts of my case, developed a strategy, and used his negotiation skills to get my case dismissed before it even went to court. He truly exceeded all of my expectations!

Best Attorney Right Here Hands Down
I’ve known Ben now for a little over five years, and as someone who’s hired him with amazing results, you can believe this is a truthful and trustworthy review. The reason this review is so important is because I’ve wasted a lot of money, paying for attorneys that did not care, or even work on my case we all know when you’re in trouble it feels like a nightmare and when you hire an attorney that doesn’t care after you’ve paid them. It makes matters 100 times worse. Ben Jacob is amazing as an attorney he knows the law he’s highly respected in the court room and he’s gonna get you the very best outcome every time. He has a way of taking a terrible situation and turning it around in a way you weren’t even imagine he’s honest and caring and compassionate and hard-working. He truly cares about his clients more than any attorney I’ve ever met or hired. He’s worked on several cases for me, and every single one of them was an amazing outcome more than you can ever expect, I want to save you the heartache that I’ve been through paying attorneys that take your money and do not work on your case. This is why I am writing this review after this review, don’t look any further give Ben a call and I promise after that first phone call, you’ll realize why he has five star reviews on every review site there is , I would call Ben a friend and an attorney you need on speed dial and for any of your friends and families needs in the criminal court. You’ll never find an attorney like Ben, and I know this for a fact, since he handled my first case, and then I moved And picked up another case Ben was too far away to take this particular case but that didn’t stop him from trying to help mitigate damages and get me bailed out of jail within 10 minutes finally after lawyers taking my money and doing absolutely nothing on my case I beg Ben to help me and of course, like the caring, compassionate attorney he is he came to the rescue. I can’t say enough about Ben and his law firm. It’s amazing you’ll be able to talk to Ben. He returns calls and returns text and he keeps his word. He’s already working hard in just a few short weeks taking over my case I’m already at ease and know it’s going to work out like it always does when Ben is your Attorney . I’ve also sat in the quart room many times for my case when Ben was handling other cases and he’s just a Stand Out attorney the way that he helps his clients and gets in the very best possible outcome. I have so much respect and admiration for Ben, especially after hiring, very unethical lawyers I’m so appreciative to Ben. I want to give him the review that he deserves and trust me. There’s so much more I could say all favorable.

Ben Jacob is a 5 star attorney you can trust with your life
I had made an innocent mistake and was being heavily prosecuted for it. My initial attorney was of no help in my case and I refused to give up. I read some reviews online and decided to give my business to Ben. He picked up the phone from day one and talked to me like a human being, not a number, and patiently listened to my case. After all was said and done, although a lengthy process, attorney Jacob was able to get my case dismissed. My only regret in the entire ordeal was not finding him sooner. I will be forever grateful for attorney Ben Jacob and his hard work.

Look no further - Ben gets it done
Ben and his team were helpful, informative, and available. Ben was very responsive, explanatory throughout the process, and empathized with my situation for my case. He got the job done where my case was dismissed and charges erased. He has a proven method and the competence to accomplish the hardest goals for legal matters. My family and I are very grateful for his partnership and legal savvy. I strongly recommend Jacob Law Firm.

I relied on Ben to handle my case and he was successful. This case actually improved my life greatly, and I hope that I don’t need him again but if I do, I will call Ben.

Ben Jacob is a miracle worker.
Ben Jacob is a miracle worker. I have been fighting a case for over four years. I was charged with 21 felonies. My previous attorney kept trying to get me to take a deal pleading to five felonies with a five-year lid. Then he abandoned me right before the trial. I called and met with quite a few attorneys who all had the same conclusion, pleading to felonies. That is when I hired Ben Jacob. He got me two misdemeanors and no jail time. He is a miracle worker. Ben has made a difference and really cares for his clients. He knows what he is doing. So if you do hire him, follow his lead. The end result will be the best outcome you will get. He is my hero.

It wasn't quick, or cheap, or simple, but Ben got it done. He answers the phone all day every day and balances dozens of cases with precision. He is a regular at Placer County Court and his relationships there are valuable. 5 stars

Best in Placer County
Ben Jacob is a top notch attorney. Ben is professional, honest, compassionate and very communicative. Unlike many attorneys, Ben is easy to reach by phone, email or text and if unavailable right away, responds to you quickly. He provides solid legal advice, helps to educate his clients in the judicial process and what to expect every step of the way. Ben is a straight shooter, works hard for his clients, is ethical and has great character and integrity. Ben helped us with a situation and being our first time dealing with the legal system made the whole experience as comforting and painless as possible. Thanks to Ben Jacob the case was dismissed. Ben Jacob is the best attorney in Placer County and you will be in excellent hands with his expertise.

He is an allstar!
Dealt with a pretty severe situation back in April of 2022 in which I thought my life might fall apart due to a very bad lapse in judgment. Ben was amazing, worked hard and eventually my case will be dismissed! Was the best outcome possible.

Look no further! The best attorny! IntelligentC
I was facing a felony domestic Violence charge in placer county. It was during a relatively difficult time of my life and after some excessive drinking, arguments got escalated between my partners and I. I ended up being arrested and booked for felony domestic violence. My whole wold shattered and felt like it was going end. I hold a professional license in the medical field, and being the sole provider for my family, my widowed mother, and Had just purchased a home. I was clear that Being committed meant I was going to have my license revoked and I would lose everything I’ve ever poured my heart and hard work into. I love my profession and it was a bad decision I made which I am terribly regretful for. I contacted several attorneys in the area. Ben stood out to me the most. He responded right away and was patient with me. Ben is an expertise in the area of law be practices. He is intelligent, dedicated, and spent more than several hours over the phone with me as our initial free consultation. He is compassionate and supportive. He educated me on the judicial process of my case, set realistic expectations, and tailored a strategic plan specific to my case. He never once rushed me nor pressured me to make a decision to hire him. His passion and appreciation for the law makes Ben an excellent resource and leg representative on your corner. Ben is filled with knowledge and is very truthful. His price was more than reasonable for the result and service I received. He answered all of my questions at random hours of the day. The best day came when My case was dismissed. Ben’s strategies work as the results can speak for themselves. I was given a second chance in life and this has completely changed me for the better. He also really cares for you as an individual instead of just another client. His plan and tactics are methodical and life-changing not just in court, but also in my personal life. Thank you Ben for your excellent service and knowledge. I highly recommend Ben as an attorny. He is amazing, honest, intelligent, and ethical. Bens work ethic and knowledge is admirable and I have great respect and appreciation for this man.

Thank you!
Attorney Ben Jacob saved my life. During our original discussions of my case, Attorney Ben Jacob spend almost two hours with me as I vented to him about my case. He actively listened to me, sincerely encouraged me, and gave me sound legal advice prior to retaining him. The allegations against me of domestic violence caused me to face two charges. One of them was a felony the other a misdemeanor. Attorney Ben Jacob with the help of one of his sweet and caring paralegal Kris told my side of the story prior to the arraignment by carefully putting together a mitigation packet and skillfully discussing my side of the story with the District Attorney. As a result, both the felony and misdemeanor charges were dismissed, and I did not have to step one foot into a criminal courtroom! I cannot thank Attorney Ben Jacob and his staff enough for being on my side from day one. His skills warrant whatever fee for his services.

In practice for your good name not your wallet.
Ben practices criminal law for the individual and their good name, not to bill hours. I was falsely accused of assault. Ben made a few phone calls to the right people and really put my mind at ease. I hope to never need his counsel again but in such a case he would be the first person I would call. Oh, did I mention he charged me zero hours/dollars for this?

Empathetic and supportive while achieving the best possible results!
From my first meeting with Ben, he displayed genuine empathy and understanding of my situation. He was always accessible to answer my questions, prompt with responses, extremely knowledgeable of the law and the players at the Placer County courthouse, dedicated to his profession, and extremely ethical and fair. Ben was honest with me and told me what he felt he could accomplish with my case. He ended up exceeding my expectations and got my charges completely dismissed. It was obvious that the attorney on the other side with the DA’s office knew and respected Ben. The only way to get the best outcome in these matters is when prosecutor knows you are represented by a hard-working and successful professional like Ben. He put me at ease every step of the way as we navigated through the very stressful legal process. If you want the absolute best outcome for your case, I fully recommend that you hire Ben Jacobs.

Miracle Maker
  “I got busted for a felony domestic violence in May of 2019 and bailed out. I hired Ben but was reluctant because of my past experience with lawyers. When the court battle started it wasn’t looking good for me because of my past criminal history. I had little faith but Ben made a believer out of me playing the long game and eventually getting me a sweet deal. He got my felony reduced to a misdemeanor and jail time was reduced to an electronic monitoring device on my ankle which allowed me to keep my job. Going in to 2022 he’s still representing me by showing up at my reviews. I highly recommend Ben Jacob if you are in trouble and in need of a miracle. Trust the process.”

I’m so happy we chose Ben to represent my son in a criminal matter. He’s wise, professional, but more importantly, made me feel comfortable with the way the case would be handled. I’m so grateful for all he did that resulted in a positive outcome.
