I made an account just to give Christopher Miller a review...5 out 5 stars i would highly recommend him as a lawyer I hired him for two cases he was able to get me a excellent outcome both times. The first case was a multiple felony case with the possibility of 6 and a half years in prison and the Public Defender told me the lowest offer i would get is 16 months in prison Chris got me 180 days and 3 years probation and i only did 9 actual days. 3 weeks later i got arrested for a probation violation and he got the violation dropped. He is an excellent lawyer he is always available to answer any questions you have through your tough time fighting a case and he is very family oriented when anyone asks me for a good lawyer i always recommend The Miller Law Firm.

I am not new to needing notary services over the years. Having said that, please know; I found, Srividya (notary) to Excel in her services as well as her demeanor. She is; pleasant, kind, professional, on time & knowledgeable. I also discovered that she has a law degree from out of country and while she is not practicing law in the USA, I personally believe it lends itself to her overall understanding of legal documents, opinions, etc. Srividya, would easily be the BEST notary (on many levels) I have ever used and highly recommend her to anyone.

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.

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!

Compass Law Group is the best accident law firm in town. I was injured in a pretty bad car accident. I was referred to Simon Esfandi and he broke down the process involved and what his capabilities were. I trusted that he would do the right thing for me and went with his firm. Everything that he promised to do, he delivered. In the world of dishonest lawyers, he is the exception. He is honest, sincere, hardworking, and his follow through is unlike any other lawyer. He made sure I got high quality medical care and settled my case efficiently. The payout was substantial. I’m so thankful to be referred to such a man.

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!

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.

I can't say enough good about Jessica Lesowitz. Of all the attorney jokes you have heard, Jessica is the direct opposite. She was referred to me after 16 years into my divorce from a man that has more money than God and had been fighting me for every crumb the court made him throw my way. It was an emotional and exhausting 16 years. Then I met Jessica for our first meeting. Wow! A real person that practices law! I learned through our experience this past year that she is a brilliant attorney, humble and confident and compassionate. Sincerely! She will surprise you at how tiny she is, but don't let that fool you. She is a fearless powerhouse. She is the David that slayed Goliath. You will not regret hiring her to defend you, male or female. I am thrilled with the advice she gave me and the outcome of my litigation.

Lisa is a fantastic attorney. She guided me through the process after being stopped for a dui and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She was very easy to get in contact with through the entire process and always kept me informed on my case. In the end she was able to get my charges reduced. I would recommend Lisa to anyone with any kind of legal troubles.

Mr. Deller was the first attorney to see on my list. After meeting with him, I knew he was the one I needed to help me with my case. 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.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
