Hiring a lawyer is rarely at the top of anybody's to-do list, especially when it comes to delicate matters of marriage. But when I found myself in a difficult situation with my spouse, I wasn't confident that I'd be able to navigate the complexities of the legal system alone. I wasn't wrong: without Jacob Lauser's services, my case would likely have been long, frustrating, taxing, and with a less-than-satisfactory outcome. While I was initially hesitant to hire an attorney (as I'm sure many people in similar situations are), I'm overwhelmingly pleased with my decision to seek Jacob's aid.
Jacob represented me in a marital case, and I can't describe how relieving it is to have an attorney of his caliber tending to the mechanical details while I wrestled with the emotional and spiritual grief. He took care of all the paperwork, including a substantial amount of research; he dealt with the court and its officials on my behalf so I wouldn't have to deal with an often circuitous and complicated system; he represented me at my hearing and made sure that the facts of my case were represented thoroughly and accurately.
Of course, the legal proficiency of a lawyer is only half of the package: the treatment of the client is every bit as important, and Jacob excels at even the subtlest aspects of the attorney-client relationship. My phone calls and emails never went unanswered; in fact, I constantly marveled at Jacob's ability to pick up his phone within the first ring and to answer an email within minutes. When I was responsible for getting information to Jacob or the courthouse, he gave me numbered, step-by-step instructions on exactly what to do. He kept me abreast of every detail of my case and deftly explained the intricacies of the legal process.
Perhaps most significantly, Jacob was compassionate, sensitive, and kind in the midst of the most painful and confusing circumstance I've ever gone through. He treated me like a person, not just a client; he wasn't merely an attorney, but an advocate and supporter. These qualities, rare in a professional relationship, weren't simply a pejorative "bonus": they were absolutely vital to my comfort and well-being in the trauma and turmoil of such a situation.
I cannot speak highly enough of Jacob Lauser, nor can I recommend him more enthusiastically. I am so grateful for and blessed by his service. Anyone dealing with a comparable plight (and, I'm positive, with circumstances within other areas of his expertise) deserves no less than to have him on their side.
