Testimonials

“We can never thank you enough for your great advice and guidance throughout this difficult and emotional process.  Initially, we were confused about how to help our son, but after meeting with you, we felt relieved that our concerns were real.  You were always there for us and answered all our questions, no matter how small. But most importantly, you were able to help our son, and for that, we are forever grateful.” –  Dauphin County Parents

“We cannot say enough great things about Steve Jacobson. We went to him consumed with anxiety about our child’s education, and had many questions about what the best course of action would be to obtain an appropriate educational placement for him. Steve was patient, pragmatic, knowledgeable and responsive. He presented multiple scenarios and their preferred outcomes, as well as any potential stumbling blocks we could potentially encounter. He quickly returned phone calls and emails giving us the confidence and the information we needed to make necessary time sensitive decisions. He was professional and courteous to all parties involved during resolution discussions.  He worked to obtain a favorable outcome for our child, ensuring that finally, after years of anxiety and inappropriate programming, he was in an appropriate placement where he is learning and thriving.” – G.T. Bucks County, PA

“It’s hard for us to believe that we were sitting in your office a year ago. Little did we know about the relationship were about to form with you as our attorney. We moved our family specifically for the school district and the education that the district is known to provide. We put our faith and trust in the district, and when that trusts was broken we weren’t sure what to do or where to go. Then we found the Law Firm of Jacobson & John LLP.  We remember that first meeting with the firm, mostly we remember being nervous and scared. The professionalism, knowledge, and candor that Holly expressed during our first meeting made our decision to move forward quite easy. Our job as parents is to love and protect our children. We cannot begin to explain to you how grateful we are that you assisted in that protection of our daughters education rights. We have great hopes for her this year. We are already seeing some of the benefits from the IEP making a positive impact.  These positive impacts would not have been possible without your representation. It’s quite the journey when one decides to sue a school district. You prepared us well, and fought hard. We can’t even begin to express how grateful we are that you represented our daughter in this case.” – Parents of a Bucks County Student

“I just wanted to say thank you for everything that you guys have done for my son. I can’t even put into words the appreciation I have  for everything that you have done. If it wasn’t for you I don’t know where we would be. Once again thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”  – Anthony R., Tamaqua, PA

“You gave us great advice and pointed us in the right direction after years of struggle. You went above and beyond in every aspect… knowledgeable and full of expertise, reachable, patient, persistent, and reliable. Our son is getting accustomed to his new school. We can’t thank you enough. If ever the need arises in the future, we would not hesitate to contact you first. We would highly recommend you to family and friends in need.” – Satisfied Parents, Bucks County, PA

“We wanted to thank you again for your representation of our daughter over the past year. Your guidance and direction on our dealings with the district proved to be the right approach for sure. It was a very stressful time for our family to have her placement in jeopardy for her senior year. We are so glad we chose your firm to ensure her special educational rights were maintained. She is continuing to work closely with her doctors to prepare her for the transitions to college in the fall. Looking back, we know we made the right decision to fight for her rights and we couldn’t have done it without you. Again, we thank you sincerely.” – Satisfied Parents, Bucks County, PA

“Thank you for all your knowledge, patience, kindness, and support with our dispute with the school district concerning our daughter’s educational program. [She] is settling in at [private school]. It’s been a bumpy road but she’s making progress. She is starting to make friends as well. We only receive positive reports about her from the staff, and she has achieved all A’s and B’s in her first interim report card. She is on the road to recovery and we believe [private school] will play a big part in that. So again thank you. It would have never happened without you and your firm.

It was a pleasure working with you, and we are pleased with the ultimate outcome. We will be in touch when and if needed in the future. Thank you again.” – Parents, Bucks County, PA


“I cannot even begin to express my gratitude in all that you have done and all that you are continuing to do for my daughter. Being a single mother can be challenging but add to that the experience in raising a special needs child can make it overwhelming at best. Trying to ensure that I am doing all I can for her, while working full time can be somewhat of a daunting task, which is why I feel so fortunate to have found you and your law firm. Your name was given to me with the highest regards and recommendation and it is easy to see why!

From the first correspondence with you via our emails, to the actual first meeting in person, I felt your concern for [my daughter] and for her wellbeing. You have gone beyond what I had expected to help ensure she is getting the appropriate education she deserves. The time you spent with me in getting to know [her] on such a personal level, and not strictly from reading her IEP’s, physician statements etc., shows me the depths of your kindness and confirmed I had chosen the correct firm to represent her. Your interaction with me in quickly responding to each and every email I have sent to you on her behalf, no matter how trivial, continues to show your commitment to us. Your knowledge, determination and professionalism in educational law are outweighed by only your compassion to your clients.

The past several years have not only been stressful for me but have been extremely stressful for [my daughter]. She has regressed in areas that she once had mastered and it breaks my heart to see the frustration she has at continuing to lack the ability in effectively communicating with anyone. But, knowing that you are there to provide guidance and to help her possible regain some of the ground that she has lost, has filled me with inspiration and I haven’t felt that in a very long time.

I am truly blessed to have you on our team!” – C.W., Berks County, PA
