Jared Sommer represented me in a Case I had recently and when I say he made everything go so smooth I appreciated everything he did for me. He spoke so highly of me and he was very confident in what he does. He was a man of his word. He explained to me everything really well so I had a better understanding. I had never been in any trouble and I was so glad and so thankful to have someone like him to represent me. I would 10/10 recommend him for an attorney. Thank you Jared for all of your hard work!!

Jared is the best attorney I could've imagined as representation for my case. As a client with no previous knowledge of the legal system, Jared's expertise and experience was incredibly valuable and made the otherwise emotional process as smooth and straightforward as possible. He consistently asked for my preferences, kept me informed on any and all progress in my case, and always let me know what to realistically expect as possible outcomes.

Jared helped us to seamlessly work through a legal matter regarding a more serious traffic citation that our son received. Jared guided us through the options and helped us to understand the potential ramifications of each option. We are pleased with his service in representing us in this matter.

I am not sure where to start but I will try my best to capture what Jared did for me and my family. I was in a tight spot where the odds were very much against me and chance of seeing the light was very slim. I had a lot to lose if it was not for Jared. His intensive experience in his field, knowledge and wisdom in collaboration with his humanity and empathy got me a deal that was once in a life time. I am very thankful and grateful for Jared and what he has done for me. If you are in the same situation as I was, I highly recommend him. I am a very satisfied customer.

It’s not often that you see citations completely dismissed by a prosecutor in Ada County, much less two of them... This is my story and why Mr. Sommer deserves more then five stars. To begin, you would think requesting a lawyer to handle citations on my behalf is absurd, right? But like many cases, mine wasn’t cut and dry. And no, this wasn’t the extremely rare situation that places the public in a lose lose position either. It was just two simple citations that I felt strongly about contesting and I chose Jared Sommer. I’ve had the privilege of working with the courts professionally for the past twenty years and I know what conduct to expect. He was just as passionate about my small personal matter as I could ever imagine an attorney would be. I certainly wasn’t even expecting this type of resolution, so as we got closer to the trial date (this actually happens with citations too) I was relaying to Mr.Sommer that I would happy to accept responsibility for one of citations if they dismissed the other. He could sense that bit of fear that grows uncontrollably when we’re confronted with the unknown and he put me at ease as he explained the possibly outcomes, but not to lose focus on why we were there in the first place. I’d love to proclaim that my case simply had flawless merit which lead to the dismissal, but I credit Mr. Sommer mostly. It was clear that long before my insignificant issue, he had forged relationships with prosecutors and other court personal that provided him an edge. He was able to speak with them prior to the hearing and present my side in such a fashion that my only moments in front of the judge consisted of me verifying my name. I couldn’t be happier! He was fantastic and I would encourage anyone in need of legal services to contact Mr. Sommer.

I worked in a court and dealt with attorneys for many years. I am very sincere in saying Jared is one of the best I have seen.
