About me

I am a retired San Diego Police Officer. After retiring in 1989, I attended law school and I have been an attorney for the past 23 years. I specialize in representing government employees, primarily police officers, in personal injury cases (traffic accidents) and administrative disciplinary actions. I am a panel attorney for the Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police union in the United States.I emphasize thorough fact based investigations of any disciplinary appeals which will have the most success in defending proposed discipline. I am experienced in Skelly Hearings, Civil Service Hearings, labor arbitration, and Federal MSPB Hearings.

In personally injury cases, I also emphasize fact based demands for settlement always pushing for fair and reasonable settlements of these cases. I am experienced in mediated settlements, judicial arbitration, and civil jury and bench trials.

Customer Reviews

I have personally used Donovan Jacobs for a couple of different legal matters- injury claim, property damage and rental disagreement. In each case he was an excellent attorney. I have recommended him many times to family & friends and in each case he did not disappoint.

Specifically, he ensured that I received almost 1800 dollars more for my totaled vehicle then originally offered. In another case he successfully won my full rental deposit back and an additional $1500 for not returning my deposit in a timely manner. Each time I have used him he has delivered

Donovan Jacobs handled a civil suit on my autistic brothers homicide and was so effective against the defendant, the State of California, they settled with my mother for $800,000.00. Donovan Jacobs has since proven himself in several other cases, including nearly a half million dollar settlement in an auto accident, and uncountable smaller cases that had big impacts for the betterment of his clients. Mr. Jacobs puts his heart into his cases, and never gives up.
