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!!!

We had a great experience with Kevin S. Garris during our bankruptcy process. When we began to interview several lawyers, we were apprehensive and confused not knowing what to expect and if we were able to afford it. Kevin S. Garris made our process simple, fast and very affordable. We are very grateful to him, thank you.

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.

I highly recommend working with Brett and Sam!!! I was facing a less than favorable case. I prefer not to get into the details. But I will say that I could have been easily convicted. It was not going in my favor by any stretch of the law. After working with Brett Metcalf and his partner Sam Harden....they were able to get my case dismissed. I am more than happy with the outcome as I was facing a charge that I did not want to have to explain for the rest of my working career. Brett and Sam both were very patient with me and kept my mind at ease throughout the process of many sleepless nights thinking about this case. I am so happy that this is all over with and I would highly recommend working with them if you are facing any kind of prosecution. Before hiring them I spoke to several other attorneys who were not as confident or reassuring of my case outcome. I would just like to say thank you for being patient with me and working with me throughout the process! I hope for my sake I never need to hire you again...but if I ever need another attorney you will be first on my list!

Oxalis Garcia is unlike any lawyer that I have ever met. She is extremely dedicated to her cases and will work above and beyond to help her clients. She is always courteous and punctual and will answer any question to help put your mind at ease no matter the time. Oxalis helped us in a family court custody case, where my husband was consistently going to court with his ex for custody of his kids. Our case had lasted over 3 years with my husband always getting looked over simply because he was the "father" and not the "mother". His ex always put on a show in front of the judge and got away with it every time. When we finally found Oxalis, she changed everything! She was able to see through his ex-wife and show the judge her true self. Without Oxalis, we would never have been able to show the judge the truth and give the children the chance they deserve. I will always be thankful for Oxalis for everything she has done. I promise, Oxalis will always do anything and everything for you and your family.

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.

Seth is a fantastic lawyer who is competent, reliable, smart and hard working. During my divorce process, I always felt like I was getting the attention I needed and was reassured to know that he was my lawyer during such a difficult time. I was impressed that Seth knew the differences among the judges and how to use that in his approach. He was on top of the constant changing nature of my case, and continued to apply a new perspective if needed. I am very pleased with the outcome of my divorce, and could not have done it without the skill and expertise of Seth. He is also a good person who is dedicated to his clients, and makes them feel they are a priority. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a family law 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.

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.
