Last year my son was riding passenger and broke his arm in a horrible head on collision. I didn't know who to trust but I knew my son needed an attorney. At first it looked like there was minimal coverage, but Michael Gumprecht worked very hard to find multiple insurance policies. It was six figures when combined and Michael got them all paid out!! He was so professional, a huge help and always available. This is a tremendous blessing for our family so I thank you for your hard work! This is an excellent law firm and attorney.

After contacting a couple of attorneys who asked for more money to file than I could afford, I finally came across Simplified Document Solutions and that name is exactly what it is....Simplified Document Solutions. Charles M. Langevin, Jr. helped with ALL of the paperwork and indeed made the process of filing for bankruptcy simple. Filing for bankruptcy was not an easy decision to make but Charles made the process easier and less stressful. I am recommending Charles to anyone who needs help!

I must say that until I met Justin Chin and retained him my opinion of attorneys was not a good one. I thought they were all the same and that they were crooks. Justin has showed me what a an attorney that actually cares about his clients looks like and has been there for me daily through a nasty child custody case. He has always responds quickly, via text, calls and emails, day or night and his pricing is very fair. I admire is calming manor and his confidence. He is also a Christian man that allows God to direct his steps with his cases. I would be a nervous wreck if I didn't have Justin's professionalism guiding me and representing me. I am so grateful that I was able to retain such a great quality attorney and that he has the Experience needed to take my case. Justin also is going to do my taxes. I will always refer my friends to Justin if they ever have to endur the stress of a divorce or custody case. He doesn't just represent you he puts his heart into his cases and always goes above and beyond any expectation that was set. Thank you for everything Justin. May God always bless and keep you.

I hired Mark to review a prenup that my fiancee's attorney put together -- nothing too extensive, but I wanted counsel to make sure I didn't miss anything. I don't know any family law attorneys in Atlanta, so after doing some Google searching and speaking to ones referred to me, I posted to Thumbtack. Mark reached out to me, outlined his rate structure (which is extremely reasonable, especially in comparison to what others quoted me) and we easily set up a meeting, in which he came to me at my office building. After a brief in-person intro, Mark began reviewing the document and explained each section to me to make sure I understood the language. He offered a handful of suggestions, which my fiancee's attorney has incorporated into the prenup. Working with Mark was very simple and affordable; I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to him again for counsel.

Filing for bankruptcy can be an overwhelming and trying time for someone. I searched thumbtack for local attorneys who specialized in bankruptcy cases. Of the individuals who responded, Turkessa was the most professional and prompt. I found her rates affordable and she successfully helped file my case. I was totally clueless to how this all works and do not intend to be in the same predicament again. However, Turkessa was very knowledgable and discussed the best options for someone in my position. All I had to do was provide what information I could and she took it from there! Communication was key, and Turkessa kept me informed of everything I needed to do in order to be successfully released from debt. I would recommend her services to anyone in the same unfortunate financial situation.

Retaining Alyson Lembeck is the best decision I ever made. I consulted with several of the big-named, high-roller family law attorneys in Atlanta who tried to sell me on their firm, saying they would "take good care of me." They each promised good results but offered no strategy. I then met with Alyson Lembeck with whom I explained my messy divorce case. During our hour-long conversation, she laid out a thorough plan ... I could literally see her formulating the strategy in her mind as we spoke. She doesn't waste time. She's direct and honest. Alyson is a woman of action -- she's a brilliant attorney, a quick-on-her-feet problem solver who relies on her knowledge, experience, & high ethical standard to represent her clients, all the while protecting the interest of the children involved. She is kind and welcoming and very well respected among her peers. The shady opposing counsel didn't stand a chance. I have the utmost respect for Ms. Lembeck and I recommend you seek her counsel without hesitation. I trusted her with my life and I'd do it again. With highest regards, Karen

I was referred to Howe & Associates because I needed a very experienced Law Firm to handle my complex legal case. They are a great trial law firm and won my case at trial. They were able to recover much more than I thought I would get. I highly recommend Howe & Associates to anyone who needs a great attorney.

Carl has been my personal and corporate attorney for 10 years now. He is nothing less than amazing. He can take an irate client who is unreasonable (me) and bring me around to a reasonable understanding and conclusion to the problem. Unlike most attorneys I never feel he is "running up the bill". He is level headed, fair, and a great negotiator. I have happily recommended him to friends and fellow CEOs. Another flaw of mine is that I WANT IT NOW; and Carl has been more than responsive every time I had an urgent need.

This attorney was very punctual in calling me, patiently listened to my description of my legal matters, and was very responsive to my questions. I believe she is very professional, compassionate, courteous and knowledgeable. Unlike many attorneys I have dealt with, she has a genuine interest in a good outcome for her clients and is less interested about the money she can get from them.

After several years of financial struggle, I made the difficult decision to contact an attorney to weigh the pros/cons of filing for a Chapter 7. I solicited recommendations from friends and family members. I contacted several of those recommended, but Gina was the only who returned my call in a timely manner. She was always to the point and very clear on all the details involving my Chapter 7 filing. Throughout the whole process, there were no surprises, and all went smoothly through the case discharge. I would definitely recommend her for anyone considering filing. In fact, because of my experience with her, I now think people who are struggling should not think twice as I did for so long, especially with good lawyer like Gina on their side!

Ms. Watson is a life saver. After being told by two other attorneys that I didn't have a case, I met with Ms. Watson. She took the time to listen to me and explained that it was going to be tough. She kept me updated on all that was going on throughout the case. And the best part was we won! I can't thank her enough for taking my case."

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
