I have been going through a 2 & 1/2 years struggle with a dependency case to get my children back home.
I have had the opportunity to have Sonja Jacobsen represent me, I truly feel like God sent here as my angel to help me through this very difficult time.
When I first met her , I bumped heads with her lol, because I wasn't ready to get clean yet and she spoke the truth to me , and told me how it was!
Now we can laugh about it.
She has been the best attorney I have ever had!
I know she works so hard for all of her clients, she actually cares!
And that means a lot to me.
She goes beyond my expectations as an attorney!
She is excellent!
Thank you Sonja Jacobsen!
