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.

David was our attorney for the closing on the sale of our house. There were several hiccups along the way, including at the 11th hour, but he was always very responsive, professional, and helpful. This was a stressful process and his calm manner was reassuring.

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.

He handled everything for me while I was out of state. I had no worries. Any questions I had he answered expeditiously!!! Definitely recommend Frank for anyone looking for a no nonsense attorney.

We were extremely pleased with Chris Lufrano from Lufrano Law, LLC! As first time home buyers, we had many questions for Chris. He always responded quickly, no matter the time or day of the week, and his answers were always kind, concise and clear. He gave us good advice throughout the home buying process and was very patient with us. At our closing, Chris walked us through every document that we were signing and explained what they meant and how it would impact us. We found him to be calm, cheerful, and very easy to work with. We cannot recommend Chris highly enough!

He was professional, gave detailed explanations and time tables, and was able to swiftly achieve the results I was looking for. It was great working with an attorney more interested in results than padding his billable hours.

Matt is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of criminal law. He's a well established lawyer within the system and highly respected by other lawyers. Although my outcome wasn't what I wanted (discovery revealed something we couldn't fight), I avoided harsher fines and punishments thanks to Matt. I highly recommend Matt for any criminal matters.

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 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 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.
