What Makes Our Firm Unique

At Jacobsen Law Firm, we understand that trustworthiness is the most critical factor when selecting a team to advise you on legal issues. In order to trust your most sensitive matters to a legal team, you need to find a firm that has experience representing similar clients with similar matters so you can feel confident you have the right representation. It is similarly crucial that you work with an attorney who values your viewpoint. We believe that Jacobsen Law Firm is the trusted adviser you are seeking to work collaboratively with you to address your legal needs.

Lawyers by nature are trained to spot legal issues and solve problems. Many smart, experienced lawyers fail to understand (or even consider) their client’s perspective. We believe in doing business a little differently at our firm. Our goal is to provide exceptional legal services focused on the client’s perspective to encourage a stronger attorney-client relationship and inform better decision-making. Although we assist you in solving your immediate legal matter, our long-term goal is to get to know you and better understand how we can serve as a strategic partner and help you, your family or your business succeed. To that end, we implement a balanced team approach throughout your matter and offer you our concierge services to put you at ease during our time together. Additionally, many of our matters/relationships are based on a fixed fee rather than a billable hour arrangement, removing a barrier to client engagement.

Over the years, we have built strong relationships with many wonderful clients. By actively listening to our clients’ needs, we have become the trusted law firm to hundreds of people in our community. We feel invested in our clients’ success and feel fortunate to be a part of their personal or professional journeys.

In addition to our relationship with the clients, we are very proud of our network of other attorneys in the legal community, bankers, realtors, title companies, accountants, appraisers and consultants. To our valued clients and partners: thank you – we are grateful for your trust.

We are confident that we can address your legal needs, earn your trust and become your valued legal partner for years to come.
