My wife and I were in desperate need of a Bankruptcy Attorney fast, due to being in the middle of a lawsuit from our creditors. I knew nothing about Bankruptcy and was very nervous. I talked to 4 different Attorneys, but Erika was by far the most comforting. She walked me and my wife through the process step by step and made sure we were at ease. She was reachable by text/calls/email all the time if i had questions. I like to think she wasn't just doing her job but it felt more like i had a family member that was a Bankruptcy Attorney. After it was all over, it was just like she said it would be, Lawsuit gone, debit gone, stress gone. We got our life back. Erika, i can't thank you enough. Rick Brown.

I went into the courthouse in the lowest mental state I have ever experienced, and I came out like the weight of the world was lifted from my shoulders. His knowledge and experience in family law, combined with his friendly personality made everyone involved in the case, including the other party's attorney, so much more calm and compliant. When explaining information that was difficult for me to understand, he never made me feel inferior or rushed. I have worked with many other attorneys, but I will only recommend Scott.

Chapter 7 Personal Bankruptcy Personal Bankruptcy (Chapter 7) 5.0 stars Posted by Shamshir August 4, 2016 Competent, thorough, compassionate, supportive, friendly...I just don't have enough adjectives to describe this wonderful attorney. With this attorney you actually get to speak to THE attorney, Ms. Douglas. The first time I spoke to her she made me feel I wasn't alone in this fight of my life; she had my back during the whole process. Excellent communications and always available to answer even my sometimes naive questions. I had a completely successful outcome of my case with Ms. Douglas's professional representation. Thank you.

Working with Paul has been a phenomenal experience. I was nervous and uncertain how the Chapter 13 process would go, but Paul not only successfully handled my case, but he also explained everything to me and laid out the whole process (in a very friendly, caring, and thorough way). He knows the law inside and out, the likes and dislikes of the trustees who handle your case, and - unlike other attorneys - always quickly returned my calls and gave his undivided (and nonjudgmental) attention. Working with Paul on Chapter 13 was easier than getting my license renewed from the DMV and as seamless as ordering a package on Amazon.

If you are searching for a bankruptcy lawyer or just considering filing for bankruptcy, you need to call Jennifer Jones. I wasn't sure if I should even consider bankruptcy, but I called Jennifer for a consultation on what it entails. Not only did she answer all of my questions accurately and honestly, but she educated me on other positive aspects of filing that I had not known. After hiring her, every time I had a question or concern, she got back to me within minutes via email, text, or phone call. One of the most efficient and hardworking people I have ever met. She showed that she truly cared about me and my situation, and is extremely knowledgeable about the bankruptcy laws. During your search for bankruptcy lawyers you will find cheaper lawyers, but trust me, it's not worth it. It is totally worth paying just a little extra to hire Jennifer because she takes you by the hand and walks you through the very complex and complicated process of filing for bankruptcy. Thank you so much, Jennifer!

I retained Ms. Fazeli after doing a lot of research and communications with other Family Law Attorneys as am going through a complicated divorce. She provided me with a free consultation, and after speaking with her to discuss my case, it was clear that she is very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience. She completely understood my situation, and provided me with an excellent cost effective strategy. I am very happy with my choice in retaining her as my Attorney, and highly recommend her firm to anyone needing a really good Family Law Attorney.

I consulted with Chris on my case and although I went with another attorney, Chris was very responsive and professional when we spoke on the phone. He listened to my concerns and followed up after our initial consultation. I called dozens of law firms all pushing for bankruptcy, which was not the way I wanted to go with my case. Chris was one of only two attorneys I spoke with who offered to look at the paperwork and review my options. I'm glad there are still good attorneys out there willing to fight for consumers. Thank you, Chris!

I was extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case. I was facing felony theft charges and I though I was going to lose my job. Attorney Gracia went above and beyond the call and I was able to get my case dismissed. I was kept up to date with my case and I never had any trouble reaching her office. Very stern and professional in the courthouse. I definitely got my money's worth -Jeffrey S

Jeff Larkin is as good as it gets. Dealing with attorneys can be scary as you may not know if they have your best interest at heart. When you hire Jeff, you can be assured of this. He is caring, diligent, organized, understanding and kind. I could not have made a better decision with regard to choosing an attorney this time around. When selecting Jeff, we met in person, then I read his reviews, I almost went with one of those attorneys on TV in the morning, after realizing what a mistake that would have been I moved forward with Jeff. I can't say enough about his professionalism, so I'll stop and just continue to recommend him to those in need. Thank you Jeff, its been worth every penny!

Jessica helped me with my domestic violence restraining order against my ex, it involved my two minor children. She did a superb job.She guided me thru the whole process with her professional knowledge. She made me feel comfortable in front of the judge since she prepare me and told me what to expect. She was always friendly and supportive. Her professionalism is admirable. It was as if all of my worries about what to expect with law in family court were a room in darkness, when Jessica became my attorney she was my light. She really is a great attorney. If you are looking for a professional, reliable and charming attorney she is the one! Yes, Jessica is the BEST!

He was honest and straight forward with his fees and he made me feel confident that he was the attorney for me. The staff made me feel welcome and they were all so friendly.

I endorse Mr. Pilato as an exemplary attorney and a true professional. I had the opportunity to work with him on a range of difficult cases, both civil and criminal, and to learn from his expertise. I regard him as thoughtful, experienced, and ethical. In fact, very few other lawyers can deliver such quality results. Having worked with hundreds of other lawyers, Louis is surely one of the best. For all of these reasons and more, you want Louis Pilato with you in court, confident in your selection of such a worthy advocate. Geoff A.

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.

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 should you look for in a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your legal rights if you’ve been hurt in an accident at work or in daily life, have suffered from medical malpractice, or are struggling to have your insurance carrier cover your needs. It may be helpful to talk with two or three lawyers before selecting one. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, research their reviews and make sure former clients have had good experiences with them. Next, make sure the personal injury lawyer has experience and proven success winning cases similar to yours. Confirm that the lawyer is licensed to provide services in your state. When you find a qualified personal injury lawyer with whom you want to work, freely discuss payment and fees before any work begins. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to learn what your case is about and explain their rates. Personal injury attorneys typically receive a percentage of your settlement (called a contingency fee), so they are paid after the trial or case is complete. Keep in mind that some attorneys have fees that you must pay even if you don’t win your trial. It’s important to understand these details before work begins so you don’t have any unhappy surprises later. Lastly, it’s wise to choose a personal injury lawyer that you have confidence in and with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.

How do you find a good immigration lawyer?

Research is key to finding a good immigration lawyer. The immigration process can be overwhelming and complex, so a trustworthy advocate is critical. When you have identified several eligible candidates, verify their immigration law license to protect yourself and your finances. Once you have a set of licensed immigration lawyers in mind, choose one based on these considerations:

  • Mutual respect: You want an immigration lawyer who treats you and your family with kindness and consideration. You’ll do the same for them.
  • Availability: Before hiring, note if they have responded promptly to your emails and calls. You don’t want to hire someone you have to chase around.
  • Proven success: Read former client reviews and research their success rate with cases similar to yours.
  • Transparent rates: Ask directly about what their rates are, how they bill, and what they estimate your legal fees will be. Ask if they will sign a fee agreement, and get receipts for all fees paid.
  • Verify who will handle your case: Sometimes junior lawyers work on firm cases. This is okay, as long as you have discussed it and are comfortable with it. When junior lawyers or paralegals are working on your case, ask if the hourly rate is lower.
  • Be wary of anyone who promises you specific results: No case is certain, and the immigration lawyer should be honest about what you can expect.

How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

Immigration lawyers are experts in the nuances of the highly complex United States immigration system. They help clients of all backgrounds petition for immigration status and become U.S. citizens, and can represent clients who are facing deportation or detention. Nationally, the cost people pay for immigration lawyers averages $500-$1,010. The services you need will have a huge effect on your costs. For routines cases, such as applying for a travel visa, an immigration lawyer may be able to confidently quote you a set price, while more open-ended cases may be billed at an hourly rate of $200-$500, or more, depending on the reputation and experience of the firm and lawyer. Before hiring an immigration lawyer, ask what their plan for your case is and what expected costs may be. Many immigration lawyers work from retainers, and request a set amount of money upfront from which to work. For example, a lawyer who charges $300 per hour may estimate $4,000 for a standard family-based immigration case, the common process in which a U.S. citizen petitions for permanent residency for their spouse, fiancee or family members.
