I highly recommend Dana Hogle as a criminal law attorney – he is a genius in the courthouse. He has a great relationship with many of the other lawyers, judges, and courthouse workers. Dana represented me earlier this year and I was extremely impressed with him. He handled my case very professionally – was straight forward and honest with his game plane, while being respectful and understanding. As a result, my case was DISMISSED!! Thanks again we need more juvenile defense attorneys like you.

We retained Mr. Wolf after my son was arrested. We could not have asked for better defense attorney. The outcome was exactly what we had hoped and prayed for. Mr. Wolf personally answered calls and questions and made himself available throughout this very scary process. We are grateful and highly recommend The Wolf Law.

Mr. Jamieson went above and beyond the call of duty from day one. I'm one to ask a lot of questions but he didn't mind at all. A matter of fact, he always answered my e-mails immediately. His answers were always explained so that I could understand and then some. Mr. Jamieson always would do what he said he would do. If he wasn't able to address one of my questions at that particular moment, he would say so. He was completely up front and honest about everything all the time. Mr. Jamieson, definitely has renewed my trust in attorneys. I wish there were more like him out there. Thanks Mr. Jamieson for all the hard work you put into my case. Words can never express how much I appreciate all you did for me.

I retained Robert Larson for my divorce. My ex and her representation decided to prolong what should have been a simple proceeding. Larson Law not only challenged them at every turn but did so with every consideration to the financial impact on me. Robert clearly explained all of my options along the way and ultimately mitigated the outcome to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend Larson Law for diligent work at a fair rate.

Katherine is a very good listener and an excellent advisor. She took the time to listen thoroughly and came up with a plan of action expeditiously. If you are looking for someone that is assertive and can make her arguments clear and effective, then she is an attorney you would like to retain. What was surprising to me, is she thinks well ahead and is quick-witted and brilliant. I found her to be very creative, and she is willing to work within your budget. She is also very down-to-earth. She will fight for what is right and is easily accessible and very encouraging. Do your self a favor and pay her a visit in your time of need and you will find her to be very comforting, knowledgeable with an extremely strong work ethic.

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know of my experience with Ms. Tucker and Az Tucker Law. Far too often, people are eager to write letters or make a phone call to complain, but I wanted to take the time to write to let you know that I am very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination of Ms Tucker and Az Tucker Law. Throughout my case, Ms. Tucker was always very quick to respond, made herself available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the status and details/developments of my case. While I hope, I never need the services of Az Tucker Law, I would not hesitate to contact Ms. Tucker if the need arose

I had several friends who lost parents over the past few months so I decided I had better finally get around to doing my own Will, just in case something were to happen. I wasn't sure where to turn so I Googled it and ended up here on Thumbtack. I spoke with two document preparers to that submitted quotes because their prices were really affordable but I just wasn't comfortable with them. I don't know what it was but some of their answers to questions seemed superficial, as if they didn't really understand the law behind it. One document prep person was better than they other but I just felt uneasy about using them to prepare my Will. I decided to give an attorney a try and chose Woods Law Group based upon the other reviews here and other places online. My experience with Trent Woods was great. When I asked questions he took the time to answer them in a great detail and really seemed to know and understand the law. He explained the pros and cons of different choices and I felt so comfortable with the decisions I made. In the end, I did a trust and a will and feel really good about that. Yes, Woods Law cost me more than the document preparers, but it was money well spent. I am confident in my plan and the document. Best of all, I have a good understanding of how my plan will work and feel peace knowing that I am really prepared if something were to happen to me. I just didn't get that feeling with the two document preparers (even though one was a paralegal). I would highly recommend people at least talk with a Trent Woods to see the difference.

I needed last minute and I mean last minute services to review documents. Devon responded right away and replied right away to my questions first thing in Monday morning. He was able to place me into his schedule that same day. I was able to not delay a short notice closing. I'm extremely satisfied with his review and needed an attorney to make sure there were no mistakes. Humans make mistakes and I recommend everyone to have an attorney like Devon to review legal documents before signing. I'm at peace to know all is well thanks to him making time for my last minute request.

He was professional, direct and clear in the way he helped me. You never hope to NEED an attorney, however if the need did arise to require Anthony's services again, I would not hesitate to ask him. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

We Won A Big Case Thanks To Javier Puig! My son was gravely stricken from an injury he received at work. He was fighting for his life, and he had to undergo five operations within the first week of his hospitalization. I was by my son's side the entire time. Both night and day I was my son's patient advocate and the family representative, and let me tell you that it was the worst experience of my life watching my son suffer and not knowing if he would live or die. I now continually pray for all of the people and their families who have to experience such emotional and physical trauma. Needless to say, my son was in no condition to deal with any of the medical paperwork, insurance and associated legal matters. He was so hurt and so sick and he had such a bad infection. It was terrible. The entire family was so stressed and so tired out. We were all suffering from sleep deprivation. And there were so many confusing forms that we didn't know how to fill out. The hospital staff even gave us the wrong forms and documents to fill out. I think the whole process is so confusing that the hospital clerks aren't even sure what are the correct forms. So we ended up filling out the wrong paperwork. We made a real mess of things. A total mess.... To make matters worse, my son's employer abandoned him by claiming the accident didn't happen at work. Nobody will ever know how much that abandonment hurt my son. Let me tell you something: my son had faithfully worked for this very same employer for 10 years ever since he was 18 years old. He was always there for his employer--- going way, way above and beyond --- even putting in a mountain of overtime year after year. After ten years, my son had a PERFECT record and a proven, extraordinary, work ethic.. I was so proud of how he was a responsible, charitable and a compassionate member of the community. And let me tell you it was like getting a knife in the back when my son's employer conspired with their insurance company and basically called my son a liar by saying they didn't believe that the accident happened at work. This terrible situation was not only very hurtful to my son, but very intimidating because he now had to go up against two corporate giants. My son's employer is a GIANT transnational corporation with the backing of well known billionaires, and they are # 1 in the industry. They dominate the field. The employer had the best resources, the best insurance company and the best access to the legal system. The Arizona laws were written in the best interest of the company and not the workers. The insurance company was also a transnational giant and they held all of the legal advantages. Frankly, the insurance people were a heartless, calculative bunch who put on a whitewashed act. They really don't care. I found them to be total phonies. They string you along and drag their feet. Every time I spoke with a claim agent my internal bogosity meter flashed red. The entire experience left such a bad impression. Of course the insurance company denied my son's insurance claim with a smile on its face. In truth, they really, really mistreated my son both in a professional and non-professional manner. We tried our best to deal with those people ( we really did!) but we were getting nowhere. That's when we decided to seek legal help. It was the best decision we ever made, and I only wish we had done so sooner because we made a lot of bad decisions mostly attributable to our being too tired out, too depressed over our situation and too ignorant about the process. So we finally stopped trying to do everything on our own and we began a desperate search for help. It's not easy to find good help. I don't care if you're looking for a good mechanic, hairdresser, dentist, roofer, plumber or whoever... it's just so damn hard to find somebody who is trustworthy and who does a good job. Attorneys are no different. So I won't bore you with all of the reasons why we chose Javier Puig to represent my son, but one of the most relevant and important reasons why we chose Javier Puig is because he used to work in behalf of the insurance companies. So he knows what goes on inside of the corporate beast. I must tell you that it is a very big advantage to have somebody on your side who used to work hard for the opposing side and who knows the tactics of your legal opponent(s). And Javier Puig's years of experience is what you're going to need in order to get a legal decision in your favor. But there's something more important than Javier's Puig's experience that sets him apart from the rest. It's his willingness to go to trial against giants. That is what he did for my son. He went to trial. He's a trial attorney and not just somebody who'll talk and talk and try to settle a case outside of court. Mr. Puig isn't all talk and no action --- like many of the so called "attorneys at law". I was there, too, in court, the entire time. I testified. And I can tell you that Javier Puig was outstanding as both our legal counsel and representative. He handled our case beautifully. And this trial wasn't my first rodeo. I've had my own previous experience with corporate lawsuits --- big cases--- one of which went all the way up to a state supreme court. So I know a thing or two about a really good, articulate attorney when I see one in action. And the bottom line is Mr. Puig exceeded my expectations in every way. He undid the mess we made of the insurance paperwork and all of the incompetent mistakes my son made in the reporting process. Mr. Puig adroitly pleaded and advocated in a most effective manner what might have otherwise been an unwinnable case. Because of some of the honest but serious mistakes my family and I made we could have lost the case, but, instead, we WON our case in front of a judge. Not only did we win, but we won BIG. We got the best possible outcome --- including over a quarter of a million dollars of medical bills covered. And I can attribute all of the aforementioned to Mr. Puig's exceptional ability to articulate a legal case before a judge...... To anybody who is reading this because you or a loved one has suffered an accident: God's speed and may God be with you in your time of trouble. And please, for your own piece of mind, don't hesitate or wait another minute to find legal help. These insurance companies are ruthless, so find yourself a good attorney because you are going to need one. And if you're really lucky, you'll find a fighter like Mr. Puig. Signed, Guy Phillips

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does an immigration attorney do?

Immigration lawyers help their clients through all phases of the immigration process. Experts on immigration law, they are legally qualified to represent U.S. citizens, permanent residents or undocumented immigrants. Immigration lawyers also provide assistance to visitors here on student, work or travel visas, and can represent clients who may have an expired visa or who have overstayed their visa.

You can hire an immigration lawyer to assist you with petitioning for renewing a permanent resident or green card, navigating the naturalization process, submitting an employee-based petition for a work visa, filing a petition for a family member, or representing you or a loved one who is facing detention or deportation, as well as replacing, extending or changing a current visa, green card or work permit. The immigration process is highly complex, with multiple hearings, paperwork and requirements. Hiring a legal expert to represent you can help you make your best effort in the process. When researching immigration lawyers, it is very important to verify their qualifications and find a reputable attorney. Read reviews and verify that the immigration lawyer is licensed by your state before paying any fees.

How do you find a good real estate lawyer?

If buying or selling property feels overwhelming and the thought of finding a good real estate lawyer seems daunting, you’re in luck. There are some simple steps to follow for finding a trustworthy, affordable real estate lawyer to help with your property and legal needs.

  • Determine what kind of real estate lawyer you need. Many states require a real estate attorney to handle sale closing documents. For more complex matters such as a real estate deal gone awry or foreclosure, you’ll want to find an attorney who has successfully handled cases like yours.  
  • Look for online reviews of real estate lawyers in your area. Verify that they have proven experience closing or winning cases like yours and that they are in good standing with the state bar association.
  • Choose two or three lawyers to interview. Many offer a free consultation to learn about your case and provide information about rates. For standard real estate closing services, in-depth interviewing might not be necessary.
  • Ask about their rates and whether they charge by the hour or provide services for a flat fee. Ask whether a retainer is required, and what the total bill should be for a case like yours.
  • Ask for a write-up of the services that will be covered by the projected costs.
  • Make sure you like the real estate agent and they treat you with respect. Confirm whether they or another person will be working on your case and make sure you’re comfortable with all members of their team.
  • Pay the retainer and hire your lawyer.  

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured physically, psychologically, economically or in reputation. This injury may be the result of neglect or malicious intent of another person, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, company wrongdoing, unlawful imprisonment and more.

To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from a law school. Most states then require the person to pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require a retainer, personal injury lawyers often work on contingency fees. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement in case of a win.

What does a real estate lawyer do?

A real estate lawyer represents their client’s best interest in all matters related to the sale, purchase and ownership of real estate. They are experts in real estate law. In states that require a real estate lawyer to close home sales, the lawyer must review and finalize all documents before the deal can be legally completed. Real estate lawyers also help clients legally protect their rights when entering, exiting or renegotiating a real estate deal. You can hire a real estate lawyer as an individual or as a business. A real estate lawyer can help with negotiation, addressing mortgage fraud, managing foreclosures and bankruptcy, transfers of titles and deeds, property ownership disputes, zoning issues, creating a co-ownership contract for joint purchase of a property, and much more. Real estate lawyers can also protect you from issues that result when a known problem was not properly disclosed by the previous owner. Overall, real estate lawyers are an added cost when it comes to buying and selling property, but they also ensure your best interests are met, and that you and the people you are doing business with comply with the law.

What kind of lawyer does wills?

No one likes talking about death, but it’s better than leaving your children or siblings to sort out your estate. A clearly planned will can make the time of mourning easier for everyone. An estate attorney will develop a legal will, create trusts on your behalf, and ensure the proper execution of your estate after you pass away.  

Family attorneys and estate attorneys, also called probate and wills attorneys, can each prepare wills. The type of lawyer best suited to prepare your will depends on your situation. Most family attorneys provide services to prepare basic wills, including bequeathing property and personal items to family or naming a guardian for minor children. However, estate attorneys specialize in preparing wills in more complex situations. Consider hiring an estate attorney if you:

  • Have a large number of assets, especially those subject to estate taxes
  • Want to create a trust, such as allowing a spouse to live in your home until he or she dies and then leaving it to your children, or set up long-term care for a beneficiary
  • Have an ownership stake in a business
  • Expect someone to contest your will
  • Want to disinherit your spouse
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
