After five years as a passionate and hard working deputy public defender, Ms. Jacobson continues to provide aggressive and competent representation for criminal defendants, as well as representation in child custody and divorce, juvenile, guardianship and conservatorship, Title 36 and a full range of general civil practice areas.

Ms. Jacobson is also trained and interested in mediation, grant writing and advocacy, with interest in a Fiduciary Certification in the future.
