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.

The money I have invested with the service was beyond worth it. My domestic violence case did not go to the higher court and not only that it was dismissed on the atty's hearing. The attorney was very professional and she took care and approached my case holistically. She does not only wants to get the case resolved but she makes sure you are comfortable and that you will gain back your self confidence after the wreckage you have been through with life. She is very smart and very mindful person as she is concern not only with the case, but with the client's itself too. Overall I really loved the service. And i would recommend it to all others who has criminal cases, whether it is small or big.

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.

Men of quality and integrity. They cared about the most minute details that others would skip past. They really took the time to listen. They spoke and stood by their words till the very end. You can tell that they care about you and that it’s not just about the money. I was involved in a car accident where I was rear ended so hard that my head slammed into the steering wheel and my back was killing me. Simon and Joseph took the time to help me find the best medical care for my needs. The insurance company made pathetic settlement offers and these guys took them to court and put them in their place. Safe to say that the results were impeccable. Highly recommended! If I could give them 10 stars, I would! Compass Law Group has the Best Personal Injury Attorneys in town!!!

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

Jessica is the best! She is professional, takes care of her cases, always as her priority, keeps you informed, and always tries to get the best results. 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!

Lisa is a great attorney. She was very easy to get in touch with and she got back to me right away. She was very thorough in getting all needed information and did a great job representing me. I immediately felt very comfortable right after meeting her. I highly recommend her. My charges were reduced and my record was protected so my future was not impacted.

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.
