After my accident the idea of contacting a lawyer didnt occur to me as all parties involved were insured and it was clear which driver was at fault. My friend who drove me to the emergency room insisted on looking for lawyers on my behalf and James Dighero was his top pick. I initially ignored the recommendation until I found myself a week later laying in bed with the liable insurance company trying to convince me to walk down and meet them at the closest cafe to settle the case since i told them i couldnt drive. I hadn't even had a follow up appointment with my doctor or returned to work and they were on my case trying to get me to settle. I called James and that all ended. He took over and saw the case through for several months before it finally concluded. He kept me updated the entire time and did all the worrying and hassling with the insurance company for me. God forbid this ever happens again, the only thing I would change is that I wouldn't hesitate to call James Dighero.

Just started the process but so far so good. We had scheduled an appt for a consultation at 12:45. He called me exactly at 12:45, he started the process right away and seems very organize and on top of things, which is what I was looking for. I tried to schedule other appointments with other lawyers and they called me back like 6 hours after I tried. I’m very sure that’s hes gonna do whatever it takes.

Alexandra's approach to our divorce helped us come to reasonable terms during a very stressful experience. I would recommend her mediation style and skills to any couple that chooses to go their separate ways. Finances, child sharing, asset distribution and future obligations are difficult to sort through but with her help, I was able to focus on taking care of myself and my children as she helped me create a vision for life after marriage. More lawyers and couples should take this approach vs wasting money and precious emotional energy battling in court. Thank you for being a visionary Alexandra.

as this was i life changing experience I am very Happy to have had Tom in my corner. This lasted 4yrs and I do believe he had my best interest at heart, and he and I agreed on everything. I felt very comfortable having him represent me. If i had to do it again I will defiantly call Tom again, but I really hope Nothing ever happens again :)

Both my husband and I felt that everyone in your office was very knowledgeable, helpful, respectful and professional. We both appreciated not being judged. We have never gone through anything like this before - we've always paid our bills. So, to take this step and not feel like second-class citizens was very nice. I would recommend your office to anyone that needed these types of services. Again, thank you for all of your help.

About

I'm a criminal defense lawyer, and I have been serving Northern California for more than 30 years. I am currently taking a sabbatical leave from law practice for most of 2017. I am a specialist in criminal law, certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. Over the course of my career, I've defended virtually every type of criminal case, from drug offenses, low-level misdemeanors, and DUIs, to capital murder cases and serious felonies. Although I retired from government service as public defender of Yolo County in 2009, I stayed on in a transitional role up to March 2010. Throughout my term in office, I was the attorney of record for literally thousands of people in Yolo County every year. I am glad to be representing people on a one-to-one basis again. I realize that this might be a hard time for you. Contact me for a free and private consultation protected by the attorney-client privilege (which I will gladly provide, depending on schedule and availability).

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.
