Taking Care Of Your Legal Needs
Jacobson, Thierolf & Dickey, P.C., opened practice as Jacobson & Jewett in Ashland, Oregon, in 1979. We are a small firm of attorneys whose knowledge and experience spans multiple areas of law.

Real estate: Whether you are a homeowner, a farmer or rancher, an investor, or a real estate broker, we have the experience to help you with issues concerning real estate law, such as:

Trials and appeals: We take pride in settlements that are fair to all concerned. However, some cases may need to go to trial; not everyone can or is willing to agree in a way that leads to settlement. We put protection of your best interests at the forefront of our concerns. As attorneys who have been in practice for years, we are prepared to litigate in state or federal court, or represent you in mediation or arbitration. We also handle appeals in civil and criminal matters.
Answering Your Questions About The Legal Process
We hope you find the following to be helpful information:
What happens after trial court?
Whether you won or lost your case at trial court, you may have to deal with an appeal. To determine whether you have a strong argument on appeal, meet with one of us. We are professionals who take our clients’ legal matters seriously. We will take the time to fully understand the circumstances surrounding your case.
How do appeals work?
One of the most important aspects to understand about appellate law is that appeals are not brand new trials. Whether you are pursuing or defending against an appeal, no new evidence can be brought in at the appellate level. All evidence must have been presented at the trial-court level, so it is important to have an attorney on your side who is adept at sizing up the entire trial-court record.
Jacobson, Thierolf & Dickey, P.C., takes a critical approach to appellate-level cases. We will thoroughly and meticulously examine your trial-court record in order to draft an appellate brief that includes all the pertinent points. In addition to detail-oriented briefing, we enjoy the challenge of oral argument in court proceedings at all levels.
