I am more than satisfied with Christine, I cannot say enough good things about her. From our first consultation, I felt a huge sense of relief, and that I could stop worrying constantly. She was always truthful about the process, and I never felt like she was trying to pressure me or sell me something like other attorneys. Every aspect from beginning to end was top-notch customer service. She gives you her cell number and is always in contact. Ms. Thurston is a very kind and knowledgable individual, she really does care about her clients. She gave me a peace of mind, and I am very thankful for her. I have referred other people to her as well and they have all raved about her too.

I was hit hard from behind in an auto accident only one week prior to my 25th birthday, but my resulting back pain made me feel like I was twice that age. The resulting treatment resulted in some heavy expenses. Luckily for me, I had the pleasure of working with one of the best attorneys in the Chicagoland area. Michael was extremely helpful from the very beginning. The entire time we worked together, my health and well being was his number one concern, and I was always kept in the loop about any proceedings. I would recommend Mr. Shammas to anyone looking for a personal injury attorney.

David was exceptional in handling my real estate transaction. He helped negotiate terms and tax benefits that other attorneys would have missed. Our deal was complicated because of different ownership issues, and David worked hard to iron out everything. He also has experience as a real estate agent so he could speak to many of the inspection issues we encountered. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Attorney Gonet and DPG Family Law handled a very contested case involving me and my family. I can't say enough good things about Attorney Gonet. He is highly knowledgeable and even advises other attorneys on best legal strategies. He gets along very well with the judges and knows what will work and what will not. He is aggressive when needed and is able to reach settlements of issues without me having to give up anything. A pleasure to work with and I slept good at night knowing that was my attorney. I can't recommend him enough.

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.

An attorney that definitely works for you. Bob is hands down worth every dollar charged. I was astonished by his meticulous work ethic, he works to make sure you are not overcharged even if you missed something trust me, Bob will find it. This is my second closing, my first attorney, I heard from for the first time at the closing. I heard from Bob at a minimum two times per week, sometimes just to let me know how things are processing. I highly recommended attorney Pinzur for you realtor or legal matters.

Attorney Omar Khan negotiates for the best outcome on his client’s behalf. He is very knowledgeable regarding your contractural rights. He helped me remove a negative credit report by re-negotiating my auto contract terms when I fell behind in payments.

I've gotten into a lot of legal trouble and dealt with a lot of lawyers. Faraz is the most attentative and dedicated attorney I've had. Didn't need to chase him down to get a hold of him unlike other attorneys, he is very responsive. He would reach out to me to give me updates without me asking for any. He's a great trial lawyer as well, has gotten me out of plenty of trouble. His attention to detail and creative mindset has saved me plenty of money I would have had to dish out the courts. His honesty was much appreciated as well when it came time for me to make a decision. 5/5 would definitely recommend.

I don't normally take the time to write a review (unless it was a horrible experience), but I found James to be an outstanding attorney. I found James through a co-worker and he represented me during my first home sale after I had already moved out of state. From the very start, he was very responsive. When I left him a message at 9:00p, he called me back right away. Throughout the sale, he responded very quickly, explained everything in great detail, and got involved in everything. The sale process was challenging due to issues I had with the buyer during inspection, but James was very professional and knowledgeable on how to handle this difficult situation. Ultimately, he was able to salvage the sale for me. Honestly, if I didn't have James, I wouldn't have sold my home. I'm very thankful for what James did and I highly recommend him for anyone in need of an attorney specializing in residential property.

barry is a very good attorney. he was my attorney for my court case that just ended and did a very fine job. when I first met barry he gave me a free consultation about my situation and what his approach would be. he accepted a payment plan as I didn't have all of the money upfront. barry has a great relationship with many judges and states attorneys and they all respect him, he is a educated attorney and full of knowledge. barry was on time for every court date, and talked about a plan of action before each court appearance .Barry footlick is the best. gets the job done right the first time and is very affordable. Highly recommended .

Konrad is a great and helpful lawyer. I was given 3 driving citations at once and was facing nearly over a $1500 in tickets. Konrad proposed to me a few legal actions he could take in court and resulted in dropping 2 of the 3 tickets which saved me over a thousand dollars. He was very attentive to me throughout the process and made me feel confident the outcome in court will be in my favor. Will call him again and recommend him next time I need legal help.

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
