All of us here at Jacobs Berger want to reassure our clients and business associates that their health and safety are our primary concern and that we are also committed to the health and safety of our staff and our families. Though we are currently working remotely, we continue to operate as we always have, providing quality service and for us, it is “business as usual.”

We are offering telephonic and video calls, conferences, mediations, and strategic planning sessions to continue to service our clients and prospective clients, and are, of course, available for ongoing business partnerships via our virtual network!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via phone at 973-710-4366, by email, or, if necessary, carrier pigeon. (We are kidding about the last one, but you laughed, didn’t you?) Also, head to our social media pages for some tips on staying healthy, safe and sane during this time.

We are all in this together.

Be Prepared!

Here at Jacobs Berger, LLC, we offer “comprehensive case assessments”. Why? Because we don’t just collect information in order to provide a potential client with a fee quote. We’re different. We provide case assessments. We invite potential clients to come to our office for an hour and a half meeting where we sit down with them and review their particular situation and the relevant documentation. Then, we craft a strategy based on each client’s unique circumstance.

Clients leave our office with a concrete plan of action. Whether they choose to retain us or not, they walk out with a clear idea of how best to proceed.

We provide a total package. We don’t believe in giving you a snippet of information that will persuade you to hire us if it’s not going to be the information that you need for resolution of your matter. If you choose not to hire us, we want you to at least know that we gave you the best advice for your situation — not the best sales pitch.

What to bring to your case assessment

We want to review anything and everything that pertain to our clients’ cases, including any:

  • Premarital agreements
  • Judgments of divorce/dissolution
  • Settlement agreements
  • Custody and parenting time agreements
  • Child support orders
  • Prior court orders
  • Domestic violence restraining orders
  • Financial records
  • Assets and liabilities statements
  • Journals/photographs/calendars

If you think the information could be remotely relevant to your case, we encourage you to bring it along. Our lawyers will determine whether it is ultimately useful to achieving the end goals we develop together.

Completing a case information statement

One of the most important documents for every person seeking a divorce or a post-judgment modification of support to complete is a case information statement (CIS). We encourage you to fill out this document before you come to our office for a case assessment regarding financial issues. It will help you to prepare and, become familiar with the financial particulars of your matter, and it will help us advise you more effectively and thoroughly.
