Mr. McDermott is an amazing person as well as family law attorney, he was able to accomplish everything that I was not. He helped me with any questions or concerns I had in regards to my case. He also got the time-sharing that I longed for in the past few months, Mr. McDermott got a hearing for my case within 2 days and the date was set within a couple weeks. He is to the point and clearly deserves the highest of praise! I can't thank him enough and would personally recommend anyone looking for an intelligent,time savvy and honest attorney to hire Mr. McDermott.

My wife and I needed a lawyer. We were given the names of 3 lawyers by someone we respected. Of those 3, David Harris was, by far, our first choice. David understood what we wanted. David counseled us on what we could expect and never misled us with “pie in the sky” expectations. David explained the actions he would take and then kept us fully informed on what was happening. In the end, we achieved a fair settlement. Additionally, David negotiated our outstanding bills down to a minimum. We could never have dealt with the extensive negotiations and paperwork on our own. Simply put, we feel we could not have made a better decision on choosing David Harris as our attorney.

Stefan is an excellent attorney. He is a quiet storm full of insight and helped me feel safe and well prepared for the worst. Excellent response time, even when he was in court for another client, he was able to respond promptly after. I highly advise entrusting Stefan with your legal needs. I'm glad I did.

I live in Sarasota, Fl and when I needed the help of a bankruptcy attorney, Mr. Ellis came highly recommended by several people I asked. Both Mr. Ellis and the entire staff were sincere, concerned and friendly. We had filed a Chapter 7, but due to some circumstances had to convert to a Chapter 13. The entire process was as pleasant as a bankruptcy can be. They have also been helpful with further needs since the Chapter 13 discharge.

I highly recommend Lisa Kennedy with K Law. She conducts her self with honesty and integrity, which is rare in today's world. She is the first "honest" personal injury attorney I have met. Before I met Lisa, I dealt with a PI attorney that left me in a real mess. With Lisa's help, I have been able to extract myself from this horrible situation. If you would like to work with a caring, compassionate, honest and knowledgeable attorney, then you need to call Lisa Kennedy. She is amazing. She is not a five star, she is a ten star as both a person and an attorney.

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.
