I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Elizabeth Barnes. She was affordable and super-efficient. Divorce is messy, and stressful-- any way you slice it, but she knows the process. She is familiar with several widely- used attorneys in the area and is a skilled communicator and negotiator. She was quick to respond to my constant string of e-mails, and she assisted in getting me divorced "out the door" in less than 30 days. Highly recommend her!!!

Just received my discharge papers today. I was totally impressed with Kevin Garris. It was a pleasure working with him. He walked me through the whole process. He is professional, patient, responds to calls in a very timely manner. His fees were more reasonable than other attorneys. I would highly recommend him to anyone who unfortunately needs to go the bankruptcy route. I made a great choice using Kevin Garris to represent me you should too! N. Braun

Mr. Pallegar has been very helpful, has laid out a strategy to represent my case. He took the time to listen to me, patiently answering all my questions, repeatedly. With his representation I am confident that there will be a positive outcome to my case. Other attorneys wanted to go straight to trial, for a much higher fee. The fees were not the deciding factor, I have the means to afford any representation, the 'chemistry' was not there. The ability Mr. Palleger demonstrated his expertise, and interpersonal skills in working with me when I was highly agitated. Explaining step by step, what to expect and his strategy to maneuver the legal gauntlet. His ability to communicate was key in my decision. Trial is rolling the dice, I made a "Big Fat Mistake", which I realized shortly after my release. I just want to make things right, take my licks, and move on with my very busy life.

Pete was super flexible, affordable, accommodating, and fun. We had a very laid back beach wedding and he was a perfect fit! He even met us last minute for a rehearsal. You can tell he's in it not just for the money but because he loves his job.

When I was looking for a new family law attorney, I checked out all the websites. I checked out a few of the top rated lawyers that was listed on www.avvo.com. I called them and honestly, I wasn't impressed. I called James and presented my issues to him and he mentioned things that the other lawyers that were supposedly top rated didn't even suggest. When you're spending money, you want someone for you verses being another number. James works with you and for you. He wants to please you. He knows his stuff. He knows family law. My first attorney in my divorce was not as proficient as James is. I wish I had James the first time so I wouldn't have to go through this again. Divorce, time sharing and child support are very stressful. James clearly knows the law and especially will make you happy with the decisions that you make. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

First time I spoke to Bret I thought wow He was more intelligent than the four attorneys I spoke to to be fore him. Then he came to my house we spoke and I was correct. Not only was he the intelligent but he is just a great person. Now after the case is over not only is he the best attorney But I consider him a friend.

Salma has been a life saver during this process. Before choosing Salma I spoke to many different attorneys and everyone had standard office hours that were not convenient at all. Salma from our first phone call was warm, friendly, and professional. She has helped us with every step of the process and has always been right there with us. I highly recommend her for several reasons, she knows the process and can help you navigate this highly stressful situation. Don't pass up an opportunity to work with an attorney that truly cares about your situation. I would highly recommend her.

I hired Mike to handle my very difficult divorce case. I felt very comfortable from our initial meeting and I quickly learned I had chosed the right attorney for the job. He kept me totally informed along the way and achieved a fantastic result for me. I would not hesitate to use Mike again and have already recommended him to several friends and coworkers.

Michael reviews his cases seriously. There are a few attorneys that I have had experience with, who don't do their homework on their injury cases, and will "win" you a case. However, the outcome will be much lower than expected. After switching to Mr. Perenich halfway through my complicated case, I was very impressed with the updates, and communication that I received. Mr. Perenich negotiated a sum far larger than expected for me, even though I had to wait a bit longer for the outcome. His firm is professional, diligent, and genuinely cares for their clients. I found out about the firm through word of mouth, which I trust way more than advertisements. All in all, it was a huge improvement over the way I was treated by a certain big-name billboard attorney, who I won't name. Thank you!

Peter Farren was referred to me by multiple people and after a horrible experience with a different attorney in the area, I was hesitant that someone could come in halfway through my child custody case and fix it. But he did! Peter was always easy to get a hold of, very professional and efficient! He was down to earth and genuinely cared. I am so glad I hired him and can't wave enough about him!

I had legal issues and Ms. Buchholz was able to handle them quickly, efficiently, and discreetly. I was apprehensive initially by starting this process through the internet, but after speaking with her, I felt comfortable with her and her approach. I was a person to her, not just a paycheck, as is common with so many attorneys. I highly recommend her.

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 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 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.

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

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
