Criminal

Attorney Jacobson is dedicated to providing effective legal representation in criminal matters. She has represented defendants in motor vehicle, misdemeanor, and felony cases. She has zealously advocated for her clients, securing "nolle" or "dismissal" dispositions. She takes the time to thoroughly review police records and discuss options for alternative sentencing programs to avoid a guilty disposition.

She also represents victims of criminal matters, including domestic violence cases. She understands that it is very difficult to navigate through the criminal justice system as a victim. She regularly updates her clients regarding the status of pending criminal matters and communicates their wishes to the court. She is skillful in speaking to prosecutors and advocating for the interests of her clients.

Social Security Disability

Attorney Jacobson accepts Social Security disability cases on a contingent fee basis. This means she only collects a fee for representation if her client is granted the disability benefits. She works closely with clients to submit supporting documentation to demonstrate an inability to work. She procures specific evidence from medical providers that clearly links her client's disabilities to the justification of why work is not possible. Prior to the hearing at the Social Security Administration, she analyzes and synthesizes the medical records to develop a memorandum that clearly demonstrates why her client meets the requirements for disability benefits under their criteria. She prepares clients for the hearing before the Administrative Law Judge and advocates for her clients from start to end.
