Our attorneys understand the mighty power of the government and how intimidating it can be to face the government alone. With us on your side, you are never alone.

Our passion is defending the accused — we love what we do. Protecting our clients and their families is our mission both in and out of the courtroom. We are here for you.

This is the Longman Jakuback difference.

See What Our Clients Say

“What can I say about Jacob and Kathryn? They are who you need in your corner. We have a long road ahead to get my loved one out of Angola, but with these two by our side, I know we can do it. If you need caring, compassionate Attorneys call on them. The biggest impact is whenever I talk to Jacob he always asks, “So how is our guy doing?” The little things mean so much to us.”

“I’m so thankful for Jacob and Kathryn. They were there for my family and me when it seemed like there was no hope. They worked so hard on our case. It was so comforting knowing they were always there to help. Our family will be forever grateful for everything they did for us. We could not have asked for a better outcome.”

They kept me informed of each step and what the options/risks were. There were no empty promises to keep me happy. They responded in a timely manner, were very knowledgeable and trustworthy. I not only recommend Attorneys Jakuback and Longman, but I guarantee once you have used their services, you too will look no further.”
