I initially consulted Michael about issues I was having with present counsel. He never spoke negatively about the attorney that I found myself having to deal with. He was understanding compassionate and sincere. Unfortunately I didn't get an opportunity to work with him directly but I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants an honest straightforward and easy on the eyes kind of an attorney. If I have future legal matters I will definitely be calling Michael.

I received numerous letters from attorneys asking for my business. I changed my phone number do to automated help lines calling and then putting me on hold while I waited for the next available operator to see if my case qualified. I used Thumbtack to do my own investigation and I am confident in the choice I made to hire a law firm with an attorney and staff local to assist me when I need help!

David was my attorney for a custody case. I am so glad I hired him! He got me everything I wanted and in fact, was able to convince the judge to get me something I knew was going to be very hard to get. My ex girlfriend went through two different attorneys because David was so good at what he did. David always picked up my phone calls and kept me up to date with what was happening. He always explained the best strategy to take and specific ways on how to obtain what we ultimately wanted. He is very easy to talk to and does not seem condescending like most attorneys. Finally, he was very understanding when it came to billing and provided me with discounts whenever he could. I couldn't be happier! I always recommend David to anyone I know who is looking for a family law attorney.

I have always been greatly pleased with Attorney Greenberg's work. She's very genuine and forth coming. She will neverify tell you that she can do something that she's not capable of delivering, so I would have to say her greatest quality, is the fact that she's trustworthy.

Martin is a very sharp, creative attorney who clearly cares about his clients. Perhaps his greatest quality is his candor: He doesn't over-promise, which I see many attorneys doing today. When a judge will ultimately decide, no one can guarantee what that decision will be. But Martin uses his deep experience to help set expectations around the most *likely* outcomes, while putting together sound strategies to try to get the *best* outcomes. This combination left me with a great feeling afterwards; I can only imagine how people feel when their attorneys keep telling them they will "fight for them, no matter what", only to be disappointed in the end when then get 70%, rather than 100%, of what they wanted. I highly recommend Martin; he will NOT let you down.

I found Alex online and was very impressed with his credentials. (former prosecutor/ current criminal defense lawyer) I had a few different cases that I needed expert representation for. From the start, Alex was very understanding and clearly communicated costs and potential outcomes without over promising. In the end, he far over delivered on my expectations and truly did an amazing job - way better than I had hoped. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone who is in need of legal counsel. He will deliver the best possible scenario at the most affordable costs..

We were connected to Mr.James Song through a family friend for his quality of service. Although, the requested services were rather meticulous and difficult in nature, he was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and efficient from the start to finish. James took his time to cover all basis and made sure I understood exactly what the scope of his work covered, which provided me with a peace of mind and confidence in his work for my company and organization. In the course of the transaction he was available whenever I needed his advice, and he always responded with utmost professionalism. I highly recommend James to those who need an attorney that is honest, thorough, and hard-working.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
