Kristy is the best attorney I've had the pleasure of meeting. I felt so comfortable speaking with her, she was like a non judgmental friend that habors a lot of knowledge and willing to go out of her way to help. The turnover time for legal service was much faster than I expected and her communication was excellent. I'm very glad that I hired Kristy as my attorney and I know that you will feel the same.

We hired Jeff to review and provide legal advice on a commercial lease we were considering and we were pleasantly impressed by his professionalism and quality of service. Jeff offered us an amazing price for his services and not only delivered what he promised for that price but really went above and beyond to make sure we were taking care of. Even though we had only hired Jeff for this one stand-alone job, we felt as if we had an attorney on retainer because we truly felt his goal was to protect us as his client. I would very highly recommend Jeff to anyone who needs an honest, fair, professional attorney. We will definitely use him again in the future.

Mr. Van Horn assisted my mother with her bankruptcy case and was very helpful. He took the time to explain to her the entire process and made sure she understood what was going to happen both short and long term. He was very professional and we were impressed with his attention to detail and how relate able he was through the entire process. He was always available to answer questions and clarify any questions. We have since recommended him to both family and friends. I have used Mr. Van Horn's law firm for other legal matters as well. He has assisted in reducing my student loan payments and interest. The experience was both personal and enlightening. I've never dealt with a lawyer that cared more about what he does and about the people he's helping. The entire law firm was a pleasure to deal with.

As lawyers, we strive to be the best in our practice area. Daniel Lustig is no exception. As a client, Daniel represented me in a contract dispute. From the beginning Daniel investigated every nuance of every issue and fact. The results clearly exceeded my expectations. His litigation, communication, and negotiating skills are second to know. Daniel is eager to go to trial, if necessary. Personally, Daniel is a bright, hardworking family man. I have referred several clients to Daniel and STRONGLY recommend him for all of your legal services.

When I was having marital problems, I did not know what to expect. When I spoke to Eric, He was warm and understanding of my situation . He took the time to explain all of my rights and what I could expect during a very stressful time in my life . Long story short, he was aggressive, and fearless- he got me thru a very difficult and challenging legal process and I will never forget what he did for me. Thank you Eric

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.

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 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.
