Not that long ago I had a rough experience with the campus police department. Due to the fact that I was late to one of my classes I irrationally decided to use a disabled placard. After I returned to my car a police officer was waiting for me. The ticket which he issued stated that it was a misdemeanor. I was devastated and did not know what to do. A few weeks later when I decided to request some quotes from criminal defense attorneys. Unlike the rest Christopher did not mention a very high price and offered to arrange a meeting on Saturday. It was important for me to find an experienced attorney, because at that time I was in the process of acquiring my citizenship. As a result of his diligent and outstanding job, on the day of my interview there was nothing in the Court system regarding my ticket. Hence, the officer conducting the interview did not bother including this ticket to the application, because she read a letter explaining the issue (which could potentially have an impact on my case, possibly denying it). I am very glad that my family hired Chris. He is always polite, professional, and patient. I will definitely refer everyone who needs criminal defense. If you want the best service, do not waste your time looking for it elsewhere. Thank you again Chris and best wishes.

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.

Scott Kosner is a vanguard of Family Law. When I first met him, I was in a desperate position as a Father. I had been falsely accused of criminal charges, and had lost my parental rights altogether. What made my situation worse, is that my children were missing! This was a frightening reality that no loving parent should have to endure. With the help of the Courts and the District Attorneys Office, Mr. Kosner strategically helped me locate my children and establish visitation and custody. His experience goes beyond the law. It is the wisdom he has acquired in this very personal field of Law, that allows him to be a comforting Councilor in the toughest of situations. He has a sincere approach in dealing with people, and has a genuine passion for his job with the understanding that he is ultimately helping shape the lives of families. With determination, integrity and patience, Mr. Kosner helped me eventually obtain the privilege of being awarded Sole Legal and Sole Physical custody of my 3 beautiful children! This achievement, especially for Father's, is rare. At the turn of the Recession of 2008, I went from being successful and Independent, to financial ruin due to the economy and was buried with the constant pressures of the Courts. I've had Attorney's at every level of my financial status, and I've had good relations with all of them. Yet, after many years of trials and crucial tribulations, Scott Kosner is the only name I retain and trust with the future of my Family. He has earned the respect and admiration of Judges, Court Officials and other Attorney's in Family Court as well as Child Support Court. As months turned into excruciating years in Family Court, my debt arrears continued to inflate in Child Support Court. My financial capabilities forced me to prioritize, into a seemingly hopeless endeavor. Yet, with Mr. Kosner's assistance I came out victorious and Justice was served for me and my beloved children, in both Courts. Los Angeles is one of the most influential and competitive cities in the World, and it's is filled with very deceitful and predatory people. I've faced the aggression of some loud and intimidating Attorney's in my plight, and there were times when I felt Mr. Kosner was doing the work for two Attorney's when challenging the inexperience of opposing Councils. I have personally witnessed the Courts commend him on his representation of an extreme case such as mine. He always takes an approach of fairness for all parties, and maintained my dignity as a client. Exhibiting and acknowledging the strength of character is an important attribute. Mr. Kosner has the qualities of both, and I always feel more secure when addressing the Courts with him as my representative. On behalf of my Family, it is with great pride that I endorse and highly recommend Mr. Kosner and his professional services, as the very Best.

Sharon Ghatan is fantastic!!! My daughter had a serious DUI case and 3 misdemeanors. She was looking a serious charges. She worked her magic with the DA and dropped two charges,got her classes and a probation, she also can get her probation terminated early and her record expunged in only a year. Sharon treated my daughter as her own, Her staff, Manuel, was a pleasure to deal with always helpful and professional. I really enjoyed working with them and they really care about their clients. Sharon was worth every penny and her fee was very reasonable compared to other attorneys we consulted with before her and she was the most caring and explained everything is why we chose her. I am very grateful to her for all she did for my daughter and if I ever need an attorney again I know she is the best.

I must say that they both are dedicated to helping their clients, they are affordable and with lots of experience. I highly recommend Miguel and the attorney. They will stick with you until the end."

Mr. Greenberg was impressive from the start, I knew after a few moments of speaking to him he was the attorney I wanted to help us through this next step in my husbands alimony case. He'd had a change in circumstances and needed to go back to court to change the amount he was paying. Mr. Greenberg's fee was more than reasonable compared to what we had in countered previously! I'm going to refer to Mr. Greenberg now as Rob, because by the time we were finished with our case, my husband and I felt like he cared more about making sure my husband voice and concerns would be heard by the Judge and get a fair Judgement, than how much money he could make by running up the fees by a lot of unnecessary paperwork like our previous attorney did!! Rob was effective, efficient, quick to respond, had great advice, always felt he had our back, reasonable, very professional, he's work was qualitiy amazing! When I say trust me ... this is the attorney for you , I hope you hear and believe me. We had 2 attorneys before Rob, they don't even come close to the value of what you get with Mr. Geenberg! I would tell anyone that needed legal help with their divorce, alimony, child support or visitation, this is your guy. We saw him in action briefly in court , talking to another attorney about another client he was representing that day. Let me just say the professional way he defended him, confimed to us we had a great guy in Our Conner!! We won our case and we will forever be grateful we hired Mr. Greenberg to represent us!! Thanks Rob Steve and Kim

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!

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 have an extensive experience of working with different immigration attorneys not only as an immigrant, but also as an immigration specialist. I worked with multiple attorneys, few different law firms both when I had no idea how US immigration law works and later when immigration became my passion and career. Genie is one of the attorneys that I would absolutely recommend to everyone. She is knowledgeable, experienced, responsive and really responsible for your case. She will not let you fail. She is always on the client's side and acts immediately. If you want to hire a trusted attorney, Genie is a great choice. Thank you, Joanna

    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.

    What a great experience I had working with Jonathan Vaknin on my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. He is professional, attentive and very thorough. His experience and knowledge shows in all aspects of what he does. He really knows the law and what he is doing but what sets him apart is his warmth and understanding of his clients needs. I believe that anything needing an attorney can be stressful but he walked me through each step and made me feel supported the whole way through. He explained every detail and was extremely patient. His pricing was very reasonable especially for the time and attention that he gave to me and my case. I didn’t think that I would ever say that I would trust an attorney like “family” however in the case of Jonathan Vaknin I definitely do!

    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.

    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.

    I was very impressed with Spolin Law, and in particular with the main lawyer Aaron Spolin. He is smart, well spoken, knew the law, and he got a great result for me! I definitely would have lost my job if it weren't for him. Thank you guys! Also, a side note, I had used a different attorney before but the woman would basically never call me back. Not so with Mr Spolin. He always called me back promptly, which was a big deal. I'm endeared to them.

    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.

    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 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.

    How do you find a good immigration lawyer?

    Research is key to finding a good immigration lawyer. The immigration process can be overwhelming and complex, so a trustworthy advocate is critical. When you have identified several eligible candidates, verify their immigration law license to protect yourself and your finances. Once you have a set of licensed immigration lawyers in mind, choose one based on these considerations:

    • Mutual respect: You want an immigration lawyer who treats you and your family with kindness and consideration. You’ll do the same for them.
    • Availability: Before hiring, note if they have responded promptly to your emails and calls. You don’t want to hire someone you have to chase around.
    • Proven success: Read former client reviews and research their success rate with cases similar to yours.
    • Transparent rates: Ask directly about what their rates are, how they bill, and what they estimate your legal fees will be. Ask if they will sign a fee agreement, and get receipts for all fees paid.
    • Verify who will handle your case: Sometimes junior lawyers work on firm cases. This is okay, as long as you have discussed it and are comfortable with it. When junior lawyers or paralegals are working on your case, ask if the hourly rate is lower.
    • Be wary of anyone who promises you specific results: No case is certain, and the immigration lawyer should be honest about what you can expect.

    How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

    Immigration lawyers are experts in the nuances of the highly complex United States immigration system. They help clients of all backgrounds petition for immigration status and become U.S. citizens, and can represent clients who are facing deportation or detention. Nationally, the cost people pay for immigration lawyers averages $500-$1,010. The services you need will have a huge effect on your costs. For routines cases, such as applying for a travel visa, an immigration lawyer may be able to confidently quote you a set price, while more open-ended cases may be billed at an hourly rate of $200-$500, or more, depending on the reputation and experience of the firm and lawyer. Before hiring an immigration lawyer, ask what their plan for your case is and what expected costs may be. Many immigration lawyers work from retainers, and request a set amount of money upfront from which to work. For example, a lawyer who charges $300 per hour may estimate $4,000 for a standard family-based immigration case, the common process in which a U.S. citizen petitions for permanent residency for their spouse, fiancee or family members.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
