Mr. Jacob fought for me for 4 years roughly and got my sentence reduced from 5 years four months at 80 percent to a 16 month with half and time served paper commitment in March of 2021. He was able to get 2 of my cases dropped and my motions passed. A hard feat to accomplish with my background and in Placer county court system. He didn't have much to work with and still made a miracle happen for me. It may have took some time 2017 to 2021 but he never gave up on me and provided service above and beyond my expectations .You should be so lucky to have him on your side in the courtroom and out.”
