I had a really good experience with Kristy. You truly can't tell who's best until you talk or meet with them in person. I saw in total about 10 attorneys in person and Kristy stood out as the best by far. She first spent over 30 min with me over the phone, then when I met with her she spent another hour or so answering my questions. The other attorneys spent at most 20 min with me in person and I wasn't able to speak with one over the phone when I first called. She represented me well, everything was tailored to my individual need. All the attorneys said that I needed a chapter 13, which is about 3 times more in attorney fees and at least 4K in plan payments. Kristy was the only one who insisted that I could file a chapter 7 and discharge all my debts without a problem. She knew that she would make 3 times the money with a chapter 13 but still recommended a chapter 7 because it was best for ME. What other attorney would do that? Apparently none. You can place your trust in Kristy, she will deliver the best result.

David was a pleasure to work with even going though such an emotional thing as a divorce. He took the time to answer my questions and address my concerns no matter how big or small I thought they were. He handled a very hard time for me with class and professionalism. If you need a divorce attorney or know someone that does you need to use David and the Deutsch Law Firm. I will be recommending him to everyone I know that finds themselves in need of a quality family law attorney.

I have used attorney Lauren Weber for two different legal matters over the past several years. Ms. Weber negotiated a great settlement for me and helped me and my family get back on track. She explained the issues to me, was very honest, upfront and always responsive to my calls & emails (she really is available 24/7). I would use her again and strongly recommend her to anyone who is in need of a real estate or family law attorney.

Jeff is an amazing attorney with the best advice in his field. I was rear ended by someone driving a rental car (w/o ins, go figure?) and I was being hassled by the Rental Company's ins in regard to getting my car repaired. Jeff took the wheel and it not only resulted in my car getting repaired, but ultimately a 6 figure settlement that literally changed my life. From this day forward I will recommend everyone I may come across, who's been injured and is in need of legal representation.

I was referred to Mr. Kotler by his brother David, who is also an attorney but in Boca Raton, Florida. My son was arrested for possession of marihuana in Miami-Dade while having one prior case pending in another county. Mr. Kotler did a wonderful job on his new case. The prosecutor agreed to reset the case for 60 days and if he doesn’t pick up any new arrests they will drop the case. He didn’t even have to do any special program and is very very happy. He has one more week to behave but so far everything is good. Also his legal fee was very reasonable.

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
