Building family life plans out of family law problems

At Jacobs Berger, LLC, we see our role as architects of restructured family units. We help families transition and establish new roles and responsibilities, while minimizing strain. We differ from family attorneys who escalate tensions and fuel arguments. Rather, our clients see us as architects and builders of their new family structure.

We approach every case as an opportunity to build, rebuild, and/or reinforce the structure of each client’s future. Our team works together and partners with our clients to mitigate the impact of emotional and financial stressors that present during family law matters. We focus on the building blocks important to you in order to move you from “here” to the next place on your journey. We concentrate on securing those important fundamentals so your family’s core remains protected.

We understand the legal process creates complex dilemmas that require creative, multidimensional solutions. We reject “cookie-cutter” representation and we use each client’s unique set of facts to develop a plan specific to each individual. Our plan is not simply a means to help you through your family law issues but rather a blueprint as you move forward in life. At Jacobs Berger, LLC, we pride ourselves on understanding the human element, and we strive to keep that at the forefront of all of our relationships.

You’ll find that we are easily accessible and are responsive to your questions and concerns. Remember, our business is YOU!
