Marshall is one of the best lawyers who I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is calm, cool, and collected which is just what my husband and I needed. He took care of our legal issue quickly and his price is more than reasonable. If we ever need legal help again, Marshall will be the first person we call. Thank you very much, I am so happy I reached out to your website for help in finding our lawyer.

I learned about Shawna through facebook and after contacting many other lawyers I decided to go back to her. She offered one of the best prices for the service I needed and was always willing to answer questions that really showed me she genuinely cares. I highly recommend her and will use her again if the need should arise.

I could not be more impressed with this law firm in regards to their character! It turns out that my case may be better handled in another manner, but the lawyer took the time to advise me on how to move forward well after it was clear he wouldn't be making any money on my case. I was on the phone with them for 45 minutes. I know how much a lawyers time is worth & I respect & admire that I was freely given good advice. I would highly recommend using this law firm if you are in need of consultation.

Highly Recommended. Mr. Hoffmann handled an injury case for me and was very honest and upfront with me about my case. He listened to me and also offered me good advice. He was not a salesman, trying to immediately take my case and settle it, like some of the others I called first!!!! He handled my case quickly and was always available when I called his office. I have had other lawyers in the past, and they always seem busy. This guy always answered my questions and called me back if I left a message with his secretary. He made a miserable situation much easier to deal with. I felt like "I had someone on my side". Five stars for sure!

I will always call George when I need an injury lawyer. I have used him as my lawyer a couple times and recommend him to family/friends. He is super friendly, unlike lawyers I have used in the past. He always answered my texts and questions, even after hours. I haven’t had any lawyers do this. He always kept me up to date with everything going on with my case. Ultimately, I was very happy with the outcome of my case.

    I hired Derek Cortez Attorney at law for a speeding ticket I had received. It was the first time I received a ticket of that nature and I was nerve wracked. I did extensive research online about how to handle the situation and I talked to several different lawyers before deciding on Derek Cortez. Derek Cortez made me feel at ease with the process and explained things clearly. He charged a fair price and he wasn't pushy. Derek was polite, professional, patient, responsive and answered all my questions gladly and in a straightforward manner. I felt that I could trust him and I felt confident in his experience. Derek was swift in taking care of my case and I felt that he genuinely advocated for me. I am extremely satisfied with the services I received from Derek and I would highly recommend him to others.

    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.
