“I cannot say enough good things about Cassandra Jacobs and Jacobs family law. I was in a complicated and difficult situation and had been for years. I had gone to different lawyer’s previously and got nowhere. It was a difficult situation with difficult personalities, Cassandra walked me through it step by step, she represented me very well in court several times and during a few emergencies Cassandra stepped up beyond what was expected to help me reach a fantastic outcome. Once again I cannot recommend Jacobs family law enough, and if I ever need to go back to the family courts Cassandra will be the first person I contact.” – Michael Beaumont
