I have the opportunity to do my taxes with J this year and found the experience to be easy and very professional. For the past several years I've been using H&R Block but found them to be extremely expensive for the amount of work they had done. I'm working with Jay I found he was able to complete the tasks that are very economical rate period I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to have your taxes done with a very high level of confidence and had a very affordable price.

I was involved in a car accident, someone hit me from behind. I needed to have my car fixed, and see a doctor. My friend told me to go on Thumbtack to find a personal injury attorney. Evan reached out and I discussed my case with him and Alex. They were very helpful and I decided to use them for my case. They did a great job and helped me settle my case quickly for a large cash settlement. Since I didn't have a car they came to me. I thought that was very nice of them as well.

“If you’re like me, picking an attorney to handle your DUI case is difficult. I had no past experiences with attorneys let alone DUIs nor did any of my close friends or family. Therefore all I could do was read reviews, speak directly with a few options, and compare rates. That said, I clearly made the right choice for a few reasons. I submitted to a blood test which came back with a BAC of 1.1. I got pulled over in San Mateo County on 101 by CHP which as I understand is not the most sympathetic county to DUI offenders. Long story short, Aaron got it down to a wet reckless which was huge based on the difference in penalties. He also won the DMV hearing. Throughout the process he was accessible, knowledgeable and honest about my options, prospects, and best courses of action. He is clearly very experienced with handling DUIs which is very important to confirm with any attorney you decide to choose. He also handled my case personally which is not always the case with other DUI attorneys who as I understand will take your money and then delegate your case to a less experienced associate. And to top it off, his rates are extremely reasonable and competitive based on the rates quoted to me by other attorneys. At the very least I would give him a call and talk about your case. He spent a fair amount of time with me over the phone free of charge and explained to me what I could expect as well as what he brings to the table as a DUI attorney. All in all it was as good of an experience as one can expect when faced with what is a pretty stressful and unfortunate situation.”

We had a consultation with Mr. Smith, preparatory to hiring him. However, he was completely honest that we are on the right track, and will not need his services. He explained what the probable causes are in the delays we are experiencing, and he confirmed that what we planned to do is correct, plus additional tips. His expertise and honesty are remarkable: he was not insinuating that we need a lawyer at all! He is tops!

I found Atty. Christian Schmidt through the internet. From the moment I called him for an appointment , he makes it clear to me by asking few questions just to be sure he could help me otherwise he wont waste my time. My case was complicated, confusing and hard to fix, yet , with the knowledge of Atty. C. Schmidt , I was able to put things in order and got my green card. I am a Filipino , and if any Filipino will read this, Dont Believe Those Advertisement of Hiring Those High Rate Pay Lawyers, Atty . C. Schmidt ,gives a very reasonable price for an Outstanding Service, You will Never Regret and will be Forever Thankful!!!!! Nema R. Fernandez

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.

Excellent experience--I think that my case was perhaps on the more complex side than Mr. Yelnick's other clients, but things went smoothly, thank goodness. Tip for others: come prepared to your consultation with a list of questions, because the attorney is able and willing to answer them all. Our meetings went well because I always knew what questions I wanted to ask and Mr. Yelnick was very helpful. I'd say the quality of effort and work was higher than I expected; we met over the course of about 8 months. My only annoyance was it was a bit tricky to both find the building and the office, but once I did it was easy. Immigration can be difficult with many facets and variables, but once you have someone on your side who knows and understands, you feel a deep sigh of relief. This attorney is also a funny guy! Recommended. I will need to refer my aunt to him soon and will do so with confidence.

Ms. Chen is an incredibly effective attorney. I was pleased with how responsive she was to my needs, even responding to my emails on the weekend. She provided a 30-minute consultation to me for free and helped me find out the best immigration solution. Thereafter, she completed the legal package for my TN visa application within 2 days.

Vaksman Law Offices provided exceptional service in all regards. They answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly, and the entire process was easy, seamless and stress free. The level of knowledge the firm brought to the table was impressive and helped me strategically think through the problem at hand. Dealing with attorneys can typically be a frustrating situation, but Vaksman Law humanized the process and made me feel good about my final decisions while speaking to me in terms I can understand. I could not recommend their services more!!

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
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
