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.

Mrs. Sharen Sterling helped my brother who had a strong case against him. She not only won his case, but made this extremely stressful experience bearable. She demonstrated the highest form of professionalism and knowledge of the law. Also, she and her team were very attentive to our needs. Our family highly recommends Sharen Sterling, attorney at law. She was the answer to our prayers. Thanks again, Tannia

I heard about Miguel Centeno from Thumbtack about a year ago. He started helping me with complex issues such as international law, family law, separation of property, custody and visitation. We have worked together since then and by now it is going to be almost a year and a half working together and I consider his help very instrumental in navigating my divorce in Orange County.I highly recommend him as a someone knowledgeable, affordable, and capable.

Everything about this experience was concise, informative, and professional, yet rapid thanks to my selection of Mr. Greenberg. I took my time selecting an attorney and my research and gut instinct paid off 10-fold. Robert guided me the entire way like a father and in the end I've got a professional connection that will last a lifetime. I have and will continue to recommend anyone in need of a family law attorney to absolutely connect with him, you won't regret it! - Jimmy

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.

Ashkan Emami is an immigration attorney with great intellect as well as a tremendous sense of integrity and compassion. Throughout the entire visa application process he not only was helpful but also strategic and intuitive. With Ashkan's guidance, our O-1 visa application was carefully completed and quickly approved. We could not have done it without him.

Wow! He is really good at what he does. He is a bankruptcy expert and also teaches bankruptcy law (so you know he knows his stuff). He is very accessible and takes all phone calls himself and gives very reasonably rates. He surpassed my expectations and did my bankruptcy fairly quickly and now I am in less debt because of him. Highly recommend attorney Sevan!

I had a personal injury case where I got hit by a car walking as a pedestrian. I was going through a very difficult time, I had no idea on how to go about this, and overall, I was just really stressed. I needed the best accident attorney out there. I found Simon and Joseph from Compass Law Group. They literally took all this weight off my shoulders, and gave me their word that I am in great hands. To be honest, I was!! They were very persistent with updates, always calling and letting me know the status and seeing how I feel. The insurance company was trying to only cover 50% of the policy due to the fact they thought it was partially my fault too because the police report mistakenly found me at fault! They didn't seem bothered at all when they proposed them with that offer because they were actually very confident that they were going to get full policy limits on the case and they ended up getting the full policy! Not only that, they are a pair of perfectionists and always puts their client's happiness first. I'm very happy and appreciative I made the decision to work with Compass Law Group for my accident because now I know anytime I'm injured or have any type of accident, I have an amazing law firm right by my side to help me. Thank you, Joseph and Simon!! You're amazing

My experience with Attorney Rosenfeld has been an overall positive one, both in and out of the courtroom. I am a US Army veteran and a financially struggling student at my local community college. Although Attorney Rosenfeld’s services were a higher cost than another attorney I was considering, I decided to have him represent me in my case due to his straightforwardness. Prior to appearing in court, he also displayed an extensive knowledge handling DUI cases during our correspondence. Throughout my experience, he worked extensively with me to renegotiate prices on services I could not afford, which would have made the process all the more difficult without. He kept in touch often and I was left with the impression that he cared to keep his client’s well-informed. He was also willing to clarify any misunderstanding promptly and efficiently. Attorney Rosenfeld was also very timely and incredibly informative when I had to appear in court. He was well known by those working for the court, and I had been told on more than one occasion that I had made the right choice in choosing him to defend me. Overall, I am remain confident I made the right decision in choosing him to defend me and would highly recommend his services.

    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

    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.

    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.
