I recently had to deal with a discrimination issue based on a chronic health situation. I interviewed 3 different lawyers and 2 of them responded with unclear advice and were unsure how to proceed. Mike knew exactly how to handle the situation,  was able to leverage his many years of experience to offer up a solution I hadn't considered, and accurately predicted how my former employer would respond. The end result was I got exactly what I was hoping for and now have closure to the whole situation and can move past this stressful experience. 


Michael Jacobson won an L&I denial for me. He was upfront and very knowledgeable about what was needed to affect a positive outcome for me. He knew just what information he needed to obtain from the doctors I had seen and didn't waste time with issues that were not pertinent to the case. The case was with the State of Alaska and Mr. Jacobson is familiar with their L&I laws. We didn't even have to go to court as the information Mr. Jacobson presented was enough for a settlement in my favor.


He stood with me from start to finish in the frightening legal world. His guidance and patience were a true blessing. ALSO, Olivia is a treasure! She spoke with me on the phone for an hour - listening to my situation. She was instrumental in the end results of which I am pleased!!! Thank you Mike and Olivia.


Mike really worked closely with me on a very complex issues. He provided really excellent input into the legal strata and when combined with documentation that I was able to provide created a winning formula.

I reached out to Michael after having a tough USCIS interview about my I-751 case. He can write me a pages long persuasive document after hearing my story over one virtual meeting! ...Michael stayed as my lawyer even after I got the Intent to Deny Notice from the USCIS. ...Through extensive research and analysis, he compiled multiple similar cases into a memo response to the Intent to Deny Notice...The approval of my case by the USCIS stands as a testament to Michael’s invaluable work.



I started my application process for citizenship in 2017. Now after almost 6 years it was finally approved. There really is not any words that would describe the patience, compassion, and professionalism that Michael exhibited. My family and I will always be thankful to Michael and his team.


I had an L1 visa for the US but unfortunately got stuck in Canada because of some complications. Our lawyer worked very quickly and professionally and got our case resolved.


The best customer service available, he was always responsive and answered all my questions promptly. Although I speak minimal English he always showed me the utmost respect and patience when dealing with me and my personnel.


My experience with Mr. Jacobson was satisfactory and efficient. Documents were prepared flawlessly and exceeded my expectations.


Mike was wonderful and provided great support to my case. I am very thankful to him for all the work he did to help me during my immigration process. Would definitely recommend his work to a friend if I have the opportunity.


Everyone at this firm made the process very VERY palatable. Providing documents
was smooth, response time was prompt, and deliverables were of high quality. I could not have asked for a better experience and am more than satisfied with the outcome.
My most sincere thanks to everyone that was part of the process, especially in these times of uncertainty.


I’ll highly recommend this attorney and his office to any person who is looking for
immigration services with positive results and kind service. I’ll work with Michael and
his team again if I need it. Excellent.
