I had a simple divorce, but with an extremely difficult husband. Elizabeth worked harder than any lawyer I have had experience with (including my exes lawyer). She kept the focus on what needed to be done instead of letting the 'other side' make a circus with talking points that had no bearing on the case. When the other side failed to present documents, she had them ready to hand over for signature to prevent delays. On a personal note, I felt like a friend and not a client. Frequent calls and emails kept me informed. When she says she cares about her clients, she means it!!! She develops a strategy base on your needs. Her fees are reasonable. I recommend Elizabeth to anyone needing family legal services.

Joe, was great with what my needs were. He had a full understanding of what needed to be accomplished. He also helped me with some other legal matters that had nothing to do with my initial need for an attorney. He's very timely and even responded to me over weekends when I was expecting not to hear back until Monday. Highly recommended.

So far so good. Still in the middle of everything and this website is constantly asking for feedback so now I'm giving what I can. James is a great communicator unlike the other law firm I employed previously. I'm a results guy so time will tell. James has though tried avenues that other firm did not. And most importantly he puts the child first! I respect that he's not only on my side but on my daughters side, even more so than mine a lot!

I am doing much of my legal work myself so I simply needed Ms. Curtis to review my court documents and answer a few questions which took about an hour. She was very helpful and I would approach her again for advice as my case progresses.

Michael was fantastic from the start. He made time to talk with my husband and I, prior to retaining him, was very responsive to texts and phone calls, and completed our consultation in person. We are very pleased to be working with him, and his firm. We would most definitely recommend him!

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 have used the Nightingale Law Firm for 2 cases as well as 1 case for my mother and have had nothing but the best experience with them. My first case and my mothers case were transferred to the Nightingale Law Firm from one of the larger billboard advertising law firms in the Clearwater area. They treated our cases as if they really could careless about us or even our case. They were very unorganized, kept requesting the same documents over and over....once I switched to Nightingale I only had to provide the information once and everything was taken care of after that. They are also very good at negotiating with the doctor's offices and insurance company to lower the amount of money you have to pay back for medical services rendered!! In my opinion this is one of the best Personal Injury law firms in the area who actually cares about you and the outcome of your case. They try to get as much money in your pocket as possible.

These guys are great. Brett handled my case much better then I could have ever asked for. He was always in direct contact with me every step of the way. They were able to get my case completely DISMISSED. These guys really care about each individual case not just claim to care to get another client. If you are looking for lawyers that are very professional with great communication and who get the job done Greater Tampa Law is the place to go.

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.

I had been scheduled for surgery and realized, 4 business days prior, that in the event of something going wrong, I needed an updated will. After checking a few Thumbtack choices' on line reviews, and getting two loose estimates from a couple of them, I chose SmithLaw. SmithLaw was not the lowest priced option, but I liked the range of options Chris Smith offered to get done what I needed in the time I needed it, and how he was able to navigate a few special considerations my will had to comprehend. I signed the new will yesterday and went through my surgery today with perfect confidence that if unforeseen circumstances arise, my wishes and intents are clearly and lawfully set forth for my two beautiful children. I will absolutely bring any future legal needs to SmithLaw, and feel very comfortable about recommending them to anyone with similar needs in Florida. Thanks to Chris Smith and his wonderful team.

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.

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.
