  • Review By Alex

    “I was falsely accused of sexual assault and kidnapping by a co-worker. I was referred to Ms. Jakobe because of her experience in sex crimes. She was always in touch with me about the facts, grilling me over and over again – she knew my case inside and out. My co-workers did not want to cooperate and were holding onto evidence showing I was innocent, so Ms. Jakobe forced them to come court under a subpoena. Ms. Jakobe even exposed my accuser of attempting to financially extort me. I am now a free man without any felony convictions. Ms. Jakobe believed in my innocence.”

    “I was in the hospital and in a coma when Carissa stepped in and took my case. She went beyond what most lawyers would do without even asking if I needed the help because she knew that I did. My accuser was a drug-addicted, six-time felon who was going to kill me and I defended myself by pulling out a weapon so he would get away from me. He and his friends had been threatening me before this incident. Carissa found the witnesses that the police did not even interview and she was able to prove to the prosecutors that I was acting in self-defense. My case was dismissed. Attorneys in these times are critical and Carissa is an attorney who does her job well – she is indispensible.”

  • Review By G.R.

    “The police had me charged with methamphetamine trafficking. I had already done time for drug trafficking so i was facing 20 years in prison. The prosecutor refused to make a plea offer to probation even though Ms. Jakobe told him many times that the police were hiding evidence and protecting a confidential informant who had set me up. Ms. Jakobe filed a lot of motions, called the prosecutor’s boss, and the State offered me probation. Ms. Jakobe is a hardcore lawyer.”
