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

So far I’ve already had two other attorneys representing me on this case and neither one did what they said they’d do. I gave one of them a $2500 retainer and she did absolutely nothing in the 4 months that I had her on my case, so you could see why I was very nervous about hiring another attorney, but I’d have to say that finding Erin Hardister McLean and Laura Vittletoe have been a god send. They’ve accomplished more in the one week since retaining them, then my last attorney did in 4 months. They are very reasonable on their fees as well. They’re hands down the best attorney’s out there. I’ve already referred them to one of my friends and will continue to do so..

Awesome, Just had my meeting with the trustee and went smooth as silk. Mr. Kopp and his associate Mrs. Osa, are awesome people. Best Attorneys I have EVER hired. Pricing was clear and fair, answered all my questions, even silly ones. I will highly recommend to everyone in need of help. They really do take care of their clients.

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.

Josh and his team are a group of prodigious, dedicated and hardworking people. They helped me when I was rear-ended in March of 2018. I reached out to him while I was lost and had no idea what to do as this was the first accident I have been in. When I called I was met with a warm welcome where I informed Josh about the situation and let him know the extent of my concerns, injuries, and damage to my vehicle. He laid out for me, very clearly, exactly how he would approach the case and each step he would take in settling my case. He is a knowledgeable, experienced, successful attorney. More importantly, he is a compassionate, honest human being, which is essential when it feels as though your life is falling apart. I highly recommend him and his firm. My case turned out far better than I had hoped for. They were always in touch, always had all the answers to any questions. This law firm carried me and my family through the most horrible time of my life. They were always there for us day by day. It gave me time to concentrate on healing. A level of trust and caring that I will always be truly grateful. I would highly recommend Josh if you are looking for somebody that not only cares about winning your case but also cares you as his client. -Brett M.

We are just getting started but I feel very confident in Mr. Edison. Right away, he was very responsive and has taken the time to explain everything in detail so i could understand it. He was the first attorney that I had spoken with that completely saw things from my perspective. He also seems to tackle things differently than others and overall I just felt it was very refreshing. I look forward to moving forward with his experience and guidance in my divorce/custody case.

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.

I would recommend Amber anytime. She was prompt with responding to me. Her consultations was very thorough and she was not looking at the clock. I was discouraged about attorneys after an encounter with another attorney which was 15 minutes late for our 30 minute appointment and yet rushed me 7 minutes into our consultation. Thanks Amber for changing my perspective about attorneys and for helping me.

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.

I had a cumbersome case that was taken on by Gurley Law without complaint. Through the challenges I faced, never once was I made to feel that the work was not a priority. Heather attended all my hearings prepared and well versed and ready to be my voice. Wonderful experience by a knowledgeable attorney with compassion.

I have never met him personally, but I can say that from all of my dealings with him, He exceeded my expectations. I am glad that I hired him. I would hire him again. Kenneth Joshua, Ohio

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.
