This group is just amazing! First of all, they are very compassionate and professional. Having to file bankruptcy is stressful enough, but they made me feel calm and respected. They respond to emails and calls very quickly, and answer any questions I have, and truly seem to care. They were also upfront about all of the fees, what the payments would be, and NO hidden costs like some attorneys. My attorney is Morgan McCain, who is very kind. Also Jennifer & Cheyenne have been really helpful and nice. I would highly recommend this office!

DEAL WITH CONFIDENCE Couldn't have been better. After previously botching up an eviction trying to do it myself. I knew I needed help but could not afford to pay an attorney more than I would collect in back rent owed me. I got lucky!! Finding Sheila and Fedora Legal Services in an internet search. The entire process couldn't have gone smoother with Sheila's assistance. Sheila demonstrated skillful knowledge preparing the very complicated court documents and having delinquent renter legally served with the proper summons and court documents. I was surprised how reasonable Fedora's fees were. Saved me apx $1500.00 compared to quotes I received from two lawyers just to prepare paperwork. Better than a hundred I was quoted from another local document prep service. Before biting the bullet and lining an attorney's pocket. Call Fedora, they are very communicative, prompt and inexpensive.

I had a fantastic experience hiring Judd Nemiro as my attorney for my divorce. Judd was always thoughtful, reasonable, and I always knew he was fighting on my side! I paid another family lawyer over $10,000 and he did nothing on my case. When I hired Judd, he immediately went to work and moved my case forward. Judd's rates were much more reasonable and affordable than my first lawyer. Judd was always available by phone or email and he would even take my calls on nights and weekends. Judd is an excellent attorney and he really does care about his clients. From the beginning he gave me a free one-hour consultation and he listened to me more than my first lawyer ever did. He got me the custody I wanted with my children and stopped my Ex-Wife's unreasonable requests. I highly recommend Judd!

Anthony was extremely knowledgeable in my experience in dealing with him. He gave sound legal advice at a time when I needed it the most. 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.

I was so impressed with the work that Libby did for my trust and estate plan. It was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. I was given a backup disc of everything that's in the plan as well. I now feel comfortable that my minor son will be taken care of according to my my wishes! I have been referring everyone I know to get Libby's help with this important project. On top of all of that, she's a wonderful person and easy to work with.

    I was divorced from my Ex-wife for several. She had an attorney and I did not. Initially she got custody of our children even though they all wanted to be with me. Eight years after the final decree I hired Jordan LLC and she was able to modify my custody giving me custody and stopping all child and spousal support. In fact, she had my Ex paying me child support. I found Jordan Law LLC very helpful, knowledgeable, and tenacious. I would not hesitate to hire her again.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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

    Do I need a real estate lawyer?

    Whether you need a real estate lawyer depends on what kind of legal assistance you need. In many states (such as Vermont and Maine), you are required to hire a real estate lawyer to handle the closing documents of a home sale. The lawyer may prepare the deed, examine the title, review purchase and sale paperwork, work directly with the lender, and more. In title states such as California and Nevada, you do not need a real estate lawyer to buy or sell a home. Typically sales are handled by escrow agents, title companies or lenders. However, you may opt to hire a real estate lawyer to handle closing — even if it’s not required — to ensure your interests are protected.

    You may also need a real estate lawyer are when you are negotiating a large property purchase or development deal, or if you are declaring bankruptcy or have a property that’s going into foreclosure. If a property dispute has escalated beyond mediation, a real estate lawyer can advocate for your interests. If you prefer to remain (relatively) anonymous in property ownership, you may have a real estate lawyer represent you and negotiate deals for you. It can be a costly investment, with national average hourly rates ranging from $150 to $350 or more, but legal representation can offer peace of mind and protection of your financial interests.

    How much does it cost to have a living will?

    Either a family attorney or an estate, or wills, attorney can help you prepare a living will, either as part of your general estate planning or as an individual document. The cost typically ranges from $250 to $500, depending on your attorney’s fees; some charge by the hour, while others have a flat rate for writing a living will. Some states require living wills to be notarized, which adds an average of $5 to $15. In a living will — also called an advanced healthcare directive — you specify whether you want to be kept on life support if you become terminally ill or lapse into a persistent vegetative state. You can also answer other important questions in a living will like your preferences for tube feeding, artificial hydration and pain medication in situations when you cannot communicate your wishes on your own.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
