Ana was and is amazing!! Long story short I had a tenant who stole someone's identity to sign a lease ($3,200/mo) and then just stopped paying rent ... I started the process by using my "Regular attorney" (Great guy and amazing but LTO law was not his specialty and needed someone more "Aggressive") I was highly recommended to Ana by several friends and clients who had nothing but praises for her work.. After introducing Ana to my old attorney, to get her up to speed, even he was even blown away by how much she knew about every aspect of my situation and the law surrounding. Ana was able to, in the most painless way possible, get my renter out of my unit and protect me from any further exposure. She has continued to always be there for me whether it be a quick legal question or even went out of her way to draft up an addendum for another tenant who wanted out of their lease early so I was protected!!! I have recommended Ana to multiple clients and will continue to always use her services. She was truly such a great person to help me in such a frustrating time!!! Thank you, Ana!!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
