Attorney Liz Ryan reviewed the file on her desk in her Denver office. She had a scheduled meeting with John and Susan Jacobson in an hour to review their legal options regarding the faulty construction of their home. This April meeting was a follow-up to the initial meeting held in January 2002. The Jacobsons wanted a solution that would preserve their long-term financial security and honor their Christian values.
