Loyal and Happy Clients

Jon K., Olympia, Washington


After My wife died last Sept. the Insurance co. that we had, lets say were acting very slowly in my behalf. So I asked Mr. Jacobsen to take care of all the claims we had. He did a great job at taking care of everything. I couldn't have done it without him. I would contact him in the future with any and all my legal need. No questions asked. Thanks Again Mr. Jacobsen.

Deanna W., Lacey, Washington


He made me feel very comfortable, not like he was above me. He was caring, took time to understand EVERYTHING. Very promt and always returned my calls and let me know what was going on. The only way I would go to someone else is if he refered to me to someone. He was also very knowledgable on a wide variety of subjects.

Jeff C., Yelm, Washington

Real Estate, Estate Planning, and Landlord-Tenant

Ryan Jacobsen is a bit different than most lawyers. He treats us warmly, always willing to sit and chat after we've completed business. He NEVER over charges, never does the typical legal nickel-and-dime routine. He treats us fairly, and treats us as friends. And every issue he's worked on for us, the outcome has been in our favor.

Ryan cares about people, and truly wants to help his clients. He is NOT just in it for the $$. Awesome lawyer, and awesome person!

Judi L., Olympia, Washington


I was desperate for some one who could help me in a particular event and Ryan was very helpful and thoughtful. If I ever need help again I will definitely contact Ryan. Thank you, Judi L.

Melissa G., Olympia, Washington


I needed a very quick review of a legal document, and Ryan Jacobsen made it happen! A quick call, an email, a quote - and it was done within 24 hours. I really appreciated the efficient and transparent service!

Sharla R., Bellevue, Washington

Landlord-Tenant and Judgment Recovery

Ryan helped me through a very tense & stressful situation of evicting a tenant and collecting back rent. I asked him a million questions, and he always took the time to answer honestly and completely each one. It was clear through the whole process that he fully understood what needed to happen and options that may happen through each step.

I had continued to work with Ryan in a follow-up matter and continued to receive the same fantastic level of support and representation. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone - including my family & friends.

Guardianship and Estate Planning

Ryan is an honest, hardworking, family-orientated man. He is available in a timely manner with answers to my questions. I DO NOT have to stalk him only to be brushed off like dandruff on a black shirt! Let's face it, when we need attorneys it usually is not for positive situations. Emotional stress and financial stress are overwhelming. Ryan helped me through a contested guardianship with kindness and understanding. Ryan will be our family attorney as long as he lives. :)

We have many legal issues because we have a special needs son. This is a lifetime commitment of guardianship issues, special needs trust administration, and any other issues that might come up. Ryan treats our son with love, care, and consideration. I honestly could not have lucked out better when searching for an attorney for my family!

Michael G., Shelton, Washington

Contracts and Landlord-Tenant

Ryan helped me with a residential lease agreement and a restraining order. He always listened and answered my questions thoroughly. I would use his firm for any judicial involvement I would have in Washington state.

Lorie K., Property Manager, Monroe, Washington


I highly recommend Ryan as an attorney. You will not be disappointed.

I met Ryan several years ago as a tenant I had rented to when he moved to Monroe Washington. He was very pleasant and easy to talk to. Once I realized he was an attorney, I began asking him legal questions about my situation I was currently in involving landlord tenant law.

Ryan was kind enough to give me advice and offered his services at an affordable price. If he didn't know the answer to a problem, he quickly researched it and got back to me promptly. In the end, we won our case and I was relieved of the financial hardship it would have caused had I lost. All of this legal work and research was done promptly from his home office.

Shortly after, Ryan was offered a great opportunity at a new law firm in Olympia and left our small town of Monroe. He will be sadly missed as I'm sure his endurance and passion in law would have been a great addition to our community.

I have never have had the pleasure to visit Ryan in his new firm, however I'm sure he's even better now with more experience under his belt. The excellence and determination as a young attorney he provided me and my company as he was just starting out just proves what a good hard working man Ryan is. I wish his wife and family much success as he flourishes into his legal career and family life with another child on the way.

Real Estate and Estate Planning

It is with particular pleasure and admiration that I recommend Ryan Jacobsen as a competent, conscientious and well qualified attorney who will represent you and your legal matters with a high level of professionalism and dedication. I first became a client of Ryan’s as I considered the creation of a will and associated documents. I was impressed with Ryan’s depth and breadth of understanding the state’s rules and requirements related to estate planning, and all with a sense of confidence, compassion and focused interest.

Another area of Ryan’s expertise relates to real estate law. He is up to date with what is happening in the current real estate markets, and is liberal in his counsel and expert advice. In addition to his integrity, for which I am impressed, what I feel is one of his most endearing qualities is his quiet, efficient and comprehensive research of factors that affect personal legal matters in this very complex world of unstable financial institutions, unscrupulous business practices. He has an unwavering willingness to go the “extra mile…or two” to provide his clients first class service and the most reliable information available. I have no reservations whatsoever in making this recommendation. It is an honor to know and work with Ryan A. Jacobsen, Attorney at Law.

Dr. Blake, Shelton, Washington


I hired Mr. Jacobsen for a contract review before joining a medical practice. He provided a thorough review and discussed key points (including what my needs and wants were in relation to the contract) that I needed to bring back to my future employer for addressing. Overall I was very satisfied with this lawyer and would use him again if need arises.

David J., Banking VP, Seattle, Washington

Commercial Litigation

Ryan was most diligent and prompt. He went above and beyond the call of duty. I was impressed with his skill and lack of the all-too-often attorney ego. He took a case for us (a commercial bank) which was outside of his normal practice and excelled in his attention to detail with the case. He successfully obtained a judgment for more than expected.

Monte D., Olympia, Washington


Ryan helped me with the probate of my mother's estate. I am 72 years old and really found Ryan to be helpful and creative to provide my family with the best outcome I could imagine. We had some really complicated issues involving out of state mineral rights and non-probate assets. We've been working together for nearly one year. I feel fully satisfied and pleased with how Ryan got the job done. He's an honest man and I recommend him to whoever needs help.

Landlord-Tenant, Contracts, and Business

As a landlord, Ryan has acted very fairly with me and firm to tenants as necessary. As a landlord, I have never lost a case when using Ryan's service.

Shawn G., Mountlake Terrace, Washington

Estate Planning

My partner and myself were in need of medical and will; power of attorney assistance and Mr. Jacobsen provided outstanding service to us and exceeded all our expectations.

Katrina and Patrick B.

Real Estate

During a difficult financial time in our lives we discussed options for bankruptcy/foreclosure/walking away from our home, as well as many other options, to deal with our financial difficulties. Mr. Jacobsen was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all options we were considering. His expertise and insight were key to our decision making process. Because of his insight we were able to keep from making horrible mistakes which could have had long and devastating consequences. We are grateful he was there for us in our time of need. We look forward to using his expertise in the future and recommend him often to friends and family.
