"Jacob did a great job communicating expectations. He not only reviewed my contract as requested but spent time on the phone walking me through his thoughts."
"I was served papers and needed an attorney very quickly. I didn't know where to turn, as it was the most stressful time in my life, I needed someone who I could rely on to guide me through this process the right way. Jacob was highly recommended from a close friend. I quickly put together a list of three attorneys to consult. I spoke with the first one and it did not go over well at all. I was put off by his demeanor from the outset and I did not, and would not, trust this guy with my divorce case. Then I met with Jacob. He immediately put everything aside and asked questions about me, my business, the other party, and how we got to this point. When you have never been through a lawsuit (I was being sued individually), everything seem intimidating. Jacob was great about explaining the process and helping me understand the more daunting aspects of the lawsuit. I cancelled my third appointment and immediately hired Jacob. He took control of the case, kept me informed, and he was always prepared for the worst. He was always available, following up on items and issues as they would arise and handling them quickly to keep the proceedings moving along. I hold Jacob Stasny in high regard and would recommend him to my closest friends and family. I believe if you are compelled to consult multiple attorneys, Jacob should absolutely be on your list. He will be the attorney I go to for any legal matters going forward."
"Jacob consistently acted in my best interests during a difficult and emotionally charged case. He is professional, hard-working and ethical, which is a relief to find when you need representation. At the time I contacted him, I was involved in an extremely complicated lawsuit. During the year he was my attorney, he worked his way past all the non-essentials and managed to keep me informed and things on track. I would, without hesitation, work with Jacob again and recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney that can be trusted to give advice and counsel to benefit the client, and not himself."
