First and foremost if you are looking for an top grade Attorney who knows how to get the job done then look no further than Patricia Whitman. Patricia was the second Attorney that i appointed to represent me in my Divorce, as i was not happy with the service (or costs) of my first Attorney. Even though my first Attorney was very highly regarded within my county she did not represent me well. Patricia (although out of my county) came in and completely transformed my situation. She is extremely diligent and will work tirelessly to achieve the desired outcome. Patricia is extremely honest, Professional, hard working, loyal, excellent negotiator, fastidious, conscientious, cares about her clients and possesses an excellent Professional and Personal demeanor. Patricia will work with you to decide if she is the right person to represent you and if you are the right client for her to work with. She is honest and open and transparent about costs and also about likely outcomes. She will guide you through the good and the bad and be honest with you all of the way. My view and opinion of Attorneys was very tainted until i met Patricia, she has an amazing ability to negotiate and win cases but whilst doing so in the most calm and controlled manner possible. I do not write reviews very often but i felt that i needed to let people know about this true "Gem" that is Patricia, she will truly change your life and your perspective on life as you navigate through extremely difficult and traumatic personal times. Quite simply if you do not hire Patricia Whitman to represent you it is your loss........

Mr. DiMaio was recommended to me by a friend who was also his Client that he represented. He was knowledgeable, professional and it was evident he was experienced and knew his profession well. The impression I got when I researched him before hiring him was one in which he was well respected by the Judges and District Attorneys he interacts with in representing clients, and he proved this to be true in my interactions regarding my case with him. He made himself available to answer questions throughout the process, and I was impressed with how well he knew all the details of my case in Court. He is certainly an Attorney who is invested in doing what is best and right for his Clients, which I did not find with other attorneys I consulted with before I hired Mr. DiMaio. I would definitely recommend him without any hesitation.

Ellis helped me through a emotionally difficult legal matter, he made a painful and scary experience much less painful. He was the only attorney I consulted with that did not try to scare me into hiring him. He was straightforward and kind in every interaction we had. He spoke with me at length on the phone and in person before he was hired to handle my case. His assistant Lindsay was very sweet, and helpful as well. He was not the cheapest attorney, but you get what you pay for apparently. Ellis was worth every penny. In my case, he surpassed even his own expectations, maybe luck was on my side. Regardless, Ellis was extremely effective, and this rave review is a 100% genuine. I highly recommend his services.

I felt comfortable with every step of the process as Sidney was very knowledgeable. Thanks to Sidney and the Dorchester Law Center I now enjoy the opportunity of a financial fresh start. If you are looking for competent and compassionate attorneys to assist you with your legal needs, I highly recommend Attorney Sidney Tall and the Dorchester Law Center.

If anyone is looking for an experienced, knowledgeable attorney to represent them, I would suggest Thomas More Holland. In my opinion, he provided first-rate service from the beginning. This is an honest opinion and I have not been compensated in any way. If you need a compensation attorney, do yourself a favor and hire someone who knows what they are doing!

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.
