Straight Shooter, gets results
Don delivered on his word. In the initial stages, he told us what we could expect at certain intervals and he was accurate. His legal counsel helped us through a difficult time. Physically, I still am recovering, but I believe I would not be this far along if it weren't for Don and Kim Johnson and the rest of the staff.

Very pleased!
Don, and his assistant Kim, handled my personal injury/auto accident claim. They were both warm and friendly, kept me informed and completely in charge, every step of the way. They answered all of my questions (and took all my calls) promptly. I was pleased with my final settlement, and actually felt a little sad that I wouldn't be speaking with them any further. I would recommend Don Jacobs to any family member or friend who needed an attorney.

I was very comfortable with Don and happy with the results!
I would like to say thank you again very much for all your help with my personal injury claim. Thank you also to your staff with whom I was in contact at various times. I felt very comfortable with the service I received from your office. This was very important to me because it was my first experience in retaining an attorney. If any family members or friends are ever injured and need legal assistance, I would most certainly recommend them to your firm. Thank you again. It has been a pleasure working with you and your staff. I was very satisfied with the handling of my case.

Don't hesitate to contact this attorney!
If you are looking for legal counsel, I highly recommend Don Jacobs and his assistants. Any time you are involved in a legal situation, it can be confusing, time consuming, and difficult to understand all that is required of you. Don and his team worked together to make my experience hassle free, and even a pleasant one. They are knowledgeable and compassionate and were able to bring my case to completion in a timely manner with a super outcome. If you are in need of legal assistance, you will be in good hands with Don Jacobs. He truly goes the extra mile, and has your best interests in mind.

A Very Positive Experience!
I honestly can say I never thought it would be "pleasant" to deal with attorneys, but this law firm changed my perspective. It was a good and positive experience following a very painful and upsetting one! The auto accident was made much less stressful because of your office. I was completely satisfied. Thank you again for all your hard work on my behalf!
