Jacob does not have his clients best interest at heart. A small job turned into a bank breaker and he crushed us, when we needed his help. We gave him specific instructions or what we wanted done and how much we wanted to spend and he more than quadrupled it with a bill that had items in it that he did not do.

We were switched to Jacob at Jordan-Ramis after our prior attorney changed practice areas. Jacob was new to the firm but came up to speed on the issues & history quickly. He had a good understanding of our concerns and developed a series of legal arguments that supported the facts in our case. Without spending a lot of time he researched case history to provide supporting precedents for our position. What I particularly appreciated about his approach is that he was able to combine a practical construction oriented understanding of the situation along with the many legal aspects surrounding a real estate transaction. And unlike some lawyers he didn't get too wrapped up in the legal process.
Jacob's final interaction with the plaintiff's lawyer was a comprehensive aggressive letter marshalling the facts and legal issues of the case and it left us in a good position in the event the other party decided to continue pursuing the case (which to date 18 months since they've not). Had the case gone to mediation or trial I would have been very comfortable with having Jacob represent us.

Sometime's "it's the principle of the matter." In my opinion, that's when you really need a reality check of those principles and someone to give you sound advice. If you find the right person, most often you'll understand those principals are often a by-product of emotion. If you can take the emotion out of the problem, there's often a simple solution. That's what I feel I received with Jacob.
What I appreciated most was his attention. Even though my legal matter was small, I felt it was important to him. Knowing he would fight hard if needed, yet have the rational discipline for sound judgment which led to the better choice.
