Paulo R.

The services provided by Warren Law Firm and especially by attorney Irina Ribeiro is the best. I started doing only a consultation, but impressed with the excellent level of service and deep knowledge of the lawyer I hired to attend my case. I think communication, interaction, proactivity and high level of staff knowledge qualify this company as one of the market's best in my opinion.

Our company hired Peter Duong for a complicated immigration visa case after interviewing him as well as other immigration attorneys. We were impressed by Peter's thorough understanding of the law as well as his determination to find ways to argue our case successfully even as other attorneys found our case futile. Peter seemed genuinely concerned about our case. He was very organized throughout and quick to respond to our emails and calls. We would love to have Peter on board for any future cases.

Absolutely the best attorney I ever had ! I had attorneys that charged $450. an hour that didn’t get the results that Attorney Teresa Li accomplished and in less time. Who would ever thought I would hire an attorney through Thumbtack(It was a coincidence).Attorney Teresa Li is exceptional and a litigator that doesn’t waist clients money by the common practice of over billing. I’m so thankful I found her ! Don Walnut Creek

After 20 years of marriage I found myself in need of a experienced Family Law Attorney. I came across Gary Silber's name and gave him a call. Not only is Mr. Silber a seasoned Attorney with many years of professional experience he also possesses compassion, caring and has made me feel so comfortable using expertise. He not only won my case but I was surprised at how much more I was entitled too. I highly recommend Mr. Silber to anyone in need of an experienced Family Law Attorney that will only have your best interest at heart.

Ms. Polk assisted me with my divorce case. I cannot recommend her enough. I was impressed with Ms. Polk's courtroom skills and her ability to hold her own against a much more experienced, aggressive attorney. Her fees were reasonable and her office manager was very good about keeping me updated regarding my bill and how much I had on retainer. Hopefully, I never have to go through this experience again but if I do, I will not hesitate to retain Ms. Polk and her staff.

I retained Mr. Morales' Law Firm to fight a D.U.I. that I was sure only they could tackle successfully and I was right. From the start Mr. Morales and his staff handled my case with a high level of professionalism, efficiency and utmost courtesy. Throughout this ordeal they listened patiently to my concerns, suggestions and downright fears. To lose this case would have been devastating to my career and livelihood. Mr. Morales and his team did a superb job in winning this case and I am most grateful to them. I give them my highest recommendation! Mr. Louis Camacho, San Francisco, CA

I needed an attorney for a DUI. Michael charged me a reasonable rate and provided more than legal representation. He was genuinely concerned with my well being and offered valuable advice on my life situation. The court results were better than expected and his honest care that I got help was sincerely moving. I owe Michael much more than thanks for a job well done in the courtroom but gratitude for helping me improve my life.

My mom actually found them and called them for me. She told me that I HAD to hire them. I didn't know why she was so amped up about this law firm. Now I know. They were really professional and kind. They didn't rush me to sign the paperwork. The first thing they asked me when I came to their office was how was I doing. My mom has always been right and she was about Nadrich & Cohen too.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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
