Mr Mogilevsky is very knowledgeable and professional. He has morals and integrity, unlike most attorneys. He cares about his clients. He made me feel very at ease through my divorce. He answered all of my questions, phone calls and emails very quickly. He fought for me and was not worried about monies like most attorneys are. He’s ginuinely concerned. I will refer him to my friends and family. Lolita Dawson Acker

My wife and are so blessed we found Scott. His professionalism and work ethic is second to none. When he joined our legal case to represent us, we had already had a different attorney working with us. We needed something more. So Scott was recommended to us. After meeting with him, we felt like this was someone we needed on our team. Right away he went to work. Scott took so much pressure off mine and my wife's shoulders. When going through a very emotional situation, it is great to have someone their for you to guide you with sincerity. We will forever be grateful for Scott and how he helped us. If you are looking for legal help in any way, Scott is the guy you need. " Todd.L

Dave helped me during a very stressful time in my life in which my two young children and I were about to be evicted from my apartment. He contacted the landlord’s attorney and successfully delayed the eviction until I could get the money together to bring the rent current. He is well versed in bankruptcy laws. He is expeditious about getting things done and was responsive to my questions. What I like most about Dave, his fees are affordable and will accept payments. I have referred others to him. I would highly recommend him

When I was injured years ago downtown by a sidewalk that literally crumbled and broke apart beneath me as I was skateboarding, Bill Hurst’s experience and expertise quickly allowed him to identify an improper repair to the sidewalk, and his research showed that someone had been injured at that same exact location. Thanks to his thoroughness, I got the money I needed to pay medical bills resulting from treatment for a broken elbow. Years later, Bill helped me win a settlement for a vehicle crash I was involved in after a driver took an improper left turn into the side of my Blazer. Unwilling to settle for less than what I believed I was owed, Bill and his team fought for the settlement they felt I deserved. Not only did my medical bills get paid, but I was fairly compensated for my loss of time and for my struggle through physical therapy to get physically back to the point I had been prior to the accident. Bill’s decades of experience make him one of the top rated injury attorneys in the state. Not only would I recommend him to family and friends, I have recommended him, and the people I’ve recommended him to are as just as pleased with their experience.

I suffered an accident 3 years ago and someone recommended me to call Mr. Rowe. It was the best choice I had ever made. My case was a difficult one and after over a year of litigation my case was settled thanks to the professionalism, experience and knowledge of Tim Rowe. I definitely recommend him because he is an excellent attorney who also understands the suffering, pain and hardships that his clients go through. I really appreciate his patience, time and help that he showed to me during that process.

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.
