I recently found myself in one of the worst situations I had ever been in... a DUI. I was certain that the career I had worked very hard for was going to be over. I had asked for advice from others who had been in situations similar to mine and one close friend had actually stated, quite firmly, that I shouldn't waste my time or money on a lawyer-- that a lawyer wouldn't really help my situation out any. My friend's advice was actually terrible advice. I quickly found out that the representation of a lawyer (a really good lawyer) during such a frightening time is priceless. I was in absolute panic and despair and I knew I needed help. I researched lots of lawyers and I came across the excellent reviews of The Miller Law Firm so I called for a free consultation. The moment I spoke to Chris I knew he was going to be amazing. He offered immediate comfort and solace during a time when I needed it the most. His concern and reassurance allowed me to relax a little knowing he was on my side with my best interests in mind. He was available for questions and concerns the entire time we were working on my case. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the law and I honestly trusted his counsel 100%. He took his time to make sure I understood everything that was going on and what I could expect. I was incredibly pleased with the outcome of my case and I would recommend Chris to anyone. I hope I never have to need the help of a lawyer again, but the first person I would call if I do need help is Chris Miller. He's an amazing lawyer... seriously.

We were very hesitant about filing for bankruptcy but due to our financial situation had no other choice. I looked up bankruptcy attorneys and came across Erika Luna on Thumbtack so I gave her a call. She explained the process to us and she was always available to answer our questions and/or concerns. The process was faster than I expected and now I have peace of mind. I would recommend Erika Luna to anyone. Thanks again Erika!!

Earlier this year, I was a victim in a case for a DUI. I was in the vehicle of the person whom was being charged with felony charges along with DUI due to the serious injuries I received. The reason I am writing this review is because of the level of service that she provided my friend with was nothing short of spectacular. The attorney, Sharen Ghatan was extremely impressive in the court room and was able to get my friend an amazing deal dropping all Felony charges. My friend was prepared to go to prison, but never stepped a foot in jail. I had to get her card because I knew that if I ever needed representation, I would want her on my side. Sure enough, shortly after the previous case I mentioned, a family member of mine was being wrongfully charged with identity theft. He asked me if I knew of any good lawyers, so of course I referred him to Sharen. After having all charges dismissed, my cousin was extremely happy with her services. She is extremely professional and highly organized. My cousin is younger so I went with him to their meeting. She is not like the lawyers I have encountered in the past. She genuinely cares about you and she actually listens to her clients which I found to be her best trait. Although I have not personally been represented by her, the experiences I have had with her have been amazing. I highly recommend her services and if I ever get into any trouble, I feel better just knowing that I know someone like her.

Time after time, Mr. Green (hint, hint lol) has put his neck out on the line to represent our family during our cases. And I wouldn't let any shabby review change my opinion about him. So in regards to Alexis A. – don't believe everything you read on the internet. Period. There's a lot to look for when you're looking for a lawyer to represent you in court. You can just pick anyone in a suit, and hand them over your money. It was by chance, that a good friend of our handed over his business card, and recommend him! And let me tell you, I am among the very satisfied people that have found a lucky gem. Mr. Greenberg has done an outstanding job on every case he's worked out with my family, and has also gone the extra mile in and out of the courtroom. For the work he does, I would say Robert deserves a million dollars because what he does is definitely not as easy as you think. But the world does needs damn good lawyers like him. As much as a hard-ass he would like to appear to be, he is really a friendly, personable guy. Not always the New York Pitbull in a suit! He is very patient, and takes his work seriously. Robert has looked in all sorts of angles, and has some pretty creative ways to look at things. I felt that everything that needed to be examined was examined with a fine tooth comb. He pulled out all the questions from all definitely aspects. There was a lot of hard things I had to do these past few months, but if it wasn't for having someone like him at my side, many of things would not have gone as great as they did. If you're looking for someone that puts everything they have into their work, then THIS IS YOUR GUY. I never felt vulnerable because he always there for me when I needed him. We are completely satisfied with Mr. Greenberg! :D - Niloofar.

I have worked in and around law offices for most of my life. I know a lot of attorneys and how they operate. So when the time came that I needed to hire a lawyer, I knew exactly what to look for and what to avoid. I can tell right away that Mr. McCready was experienced and professional. I spoke with him in depth before hiring him. I observed him and really listened to his approach and ideas. After speaking with several other attorneys, I came to the conclusion that Zach McCready was the right choice for me. I absolutely made the right decision. He was excellent and followed through on everything. His knowledge of the legal system is impressive to say the least. If you want the best, I suggest you go with McCready.

Thomas Scully is a brilliant attorney. He is representing me in two cases and doing a fantastic job. He's thorough, personable and a gifted writer and communicator. I shouldn't be writing this review because others are going to hire him and he'll be too busy for me - but I am compelled. Judges respect him, opposing attorneys respect him and I've had one witness tell me that if she needs an attorney, she's going to hire Thomas because he's so bright.

This is one of the top law offices I've called to handle a case. My dad was being accused of Murder, I contacted this law office to handle my dad's case, and we got an outstanding result on this case. My dad was found innocent and he is home now. He will spend the holidays with all of my family. I am super thankful to have had attorney Catalina Gracia as our family lawyer. She is extremely talented in the courthouse and she will fight to the end for you. I will never use another attorney again.

Mr. Martz is not like other lawyers. He is above and beyond the nicest and most down to earth lawyer I've met. Most lawyers are slow to reply, charge you a ton, and are rude. Not Kellan. He helped me with a DUI case I had a few months ago and got me a plea deal that was very fair. I made a mistake and needed help, Kellan did a great job and was very clear in explaining how everything worked in court. His prices were very competitive and he let me pay in three installments so I didn't have to come up with that much all at once. Thanks Kellan.

Glen A.
Verified review

The Glendale PD does not tolerate too- too much especially, the biker ones. I got a DUI near Glendale and South Pasadena with a little bit more on me than just some beer. I was expecting the hammer to come down especially for my second time but all- in all the experience was not that bad looking back. I panicked at first. I thought I was banned from everything and was about to lose everything (which is common in Los Angeles so). None of that mattered because Elon Berk and Dmitry Gurovich are tough criminal defense attorneys. They pleaded my case and I received a far lesser sentencing than what all of my friends and family ever expected. Before court them and their office staff were easy to talk to and get along with. Mr. Gurovich is more than a genius and he was my lead defense lawyer. He is wonderful and I highly recommend him and the entire defense firm.

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.
