Faraji Rosenthal is a thorough, intelligent and compassionate attorney who helped get my daughters drug possession charges dismissed. I first contacted Mr. Rosenthal at 6:30AM after leaving The hospital where my adult daughter was recovering from an overnight drug overdose and was being charged with drug possession. Since it was so early in the day I sent him an email and he contacted me back only15 minutes later. I was in a daze, panicked for my child's health and fearful of a first time drug charge. All of this was new to me. I knew nothing about interacting with the police and court, especially on a felony.mMr. Rosenthal was calm, patient, compassionate and detailed in explaining step by step what was going to happen after my child got out of the hospital and had to turn herself over to authorities. He spent a lot of time on the phone with us that weekend ( he was out of town on a prior commitment ) while my daughter was in jail. His experience as a former district attorney helped him explain the Courts point of view. As my daughters attorney he managed to get her released without posting bail. This was a huge help. The first of many positive results in our interaction with him. We are former residents of Fairfax but have moved 9 hours away. My daughters arrest came when we were back visiting Fairfax. Mr. Rosenthal was mindful of our travel restrictions and our interactions were mainly by text and email. He was quick in all responses to us. When we had phone calls his confident, calm and respectful demeanor always left us feeling better about the case. At the same time, he never made promises of outcome and was patient in answering our repeated questions and concerns. Because of unusual circumstances our case lingered for almost 2 years. While our daughter was his client, we paid his fee. Mr. Rosenthal always kept us in the loop, with her permission, and was respectful of her wishes, despite her often combative attitude due to mental health issues. He was so patient with her, listened to her and helped her understand in detail her choices and the ramifications of each choice. When her case was continued after a year, he quickly corrected the Probation Office from extending her probation ( which the judge had not ordered) saving her from more expense, travel and time. As a result of his professional and thorough representation her felony charge was dismissed. Every interaction with Mr. Rosenthal was a positive one. If you need a thorough, professional, kind, patient and winning attorney don't look any further. Faraji Rosenthal is the best.

I had my initial consultation with Kymberly on Saturday and she was beyond FABULOUS! I have been trying to file for several years now and have worked (unsuccessfully) with three other attorneys. Unlike my past experiences with them, she was kind, welcoming, well informed, and far more than professional with a relaxed confidence I found reassuring. I look forward to next steps with the Phoenix Firm and am thrilled with the prospect of getting my life in proper order!

•I recommend Michael Mcvicker. "If all lawyers were like Michael" are the words my wife uttered about half way into our naturalization process. Like many, we live a life of two busy corporate careers and the prospect of going through the process on our own was daunting. We didn't know Michael and used Avvo to contact a few lawyers, but his approach sold us pretty quickly. Most importantly, Michael is an expert in the nuanced world of naturalizations. This is not a conveyor belt operation, far from it. Michael studied our cases in depth, brought forward potential concerns (however unlikely they were to actually impede the process) and ensured that we addressed them proactively. He brought years of experience of interacting with Immigration officers to bear on this case, spoke at length about the cases he had and went to great length to ensure that we were properly hedged against any small questions that could delay the cases. To top this off, my case involved a relocation in the middle of the process. Needless to say, Michael's office timely addressed this, but he also dedicated substantial amount of time to actually fly out to my new place of residence to accompany me to the interview. I will only add that this was not in vain, his presence paid off. Michael's team deserves special praise, in particular Yuliya, who played an essential role for us. Without her this case would have dragged on much longer. Yuliya is where attention to detailed is redefined. Receiving e-mails and calls from Yuliya quite late in the day is not unusual. I suspected that she did this knowing that reaching us after our work-hours would be a lot more efficient rather than sending e-mails and waiting for an answer. But this also meant that she worked late hours for us. Big thanks to her. Bottom-line here is that Michael with his years of experience in this area, in-depth cases analysis and personal approach and Yuliya with her attention to detail, hard work and sweet natured persistence make this team incredibly effective and efficient at what they do. You might think this type of top notch service comes at major law form price tag. My answer: it probably should, but it doesn't not. Class act, no reservations in recommending

I worked with several lawyers before choosing Maria Coyle to handle my divorce. First, of all the lawyers I interviewed, she was the ONLY one who actually read the concerns I had and addressed them before I even signed on with her. Then, she was efficient, polite, concerned and absolutely (SHOCK AND AWE) honest with me in each and every step along the way. The fees were realistic and the work exemplary. I would recommend her without hesitation and plan to use her services again for meeting other personal legal needs. If you're looking for a lawyer who will treat you like a thinking person who isn't looking to get ripped off or tripped up, this is the lawyer for you.

I had an experience at Giant and I called 1-800-LAWYERS. After my search, I came across Bond Law. I left a phone message with them. They promptly returned my call and were highly professional. I discussed with them the issues I had with Giant and was told they would be able to help me. They kept in contact with me and updated me on the case frequently. They met and exceeded my expectations. I appreciate the work that was done. I am very happy with the outcome. Should I have any issues in the future, I will definitely contact Bond Law again as well as refer others to them that need legal assistance.

My name is Sisay I am a resident in Virginia. It was almost more than a year since I knew Van Wormer. She is the best and professional person I have ever meet. She knows what is expected of her and give respect to her clients. She never miss appointment and gives flexible scheduling to meet her and discuss important issues. The exceptional qualities of Van Wormer are: Time management , reasonable pricing, and respect. This days it becomes common to see lawyers asking high price (either consultation or handling fees), but Worrmer never do that because her priority is to see your case solved with out problem, Therefore when it comes to choose who your immigration attorney is, the right answer and choice be Van Wormer.

When my immigration procedures became more complicated, I searched through listings for immigration lawyers in DC. I reached out to Ksenia for advice. Many lawyers will not give you the time before you pay a fee and agree to work with them, but with these attorneys I saw a genuine interest in my case, and me as a person, even before I had made my decision to work with this law firm. By visa petition was approved in 8 months and we filed for a green card that I received a year later.

Mr. Albers was one of the many lawyers I contacted when I found out I had a no bail VOP warrant. I'm only 20 and have to worry about paying rent every week and paying for school and every other lawyer told me they'd represent me for $1500. Upon contacting Mr. Albers I explained to him my situation and not only was here the most helpful during the free consultations I had but he offered to help me for only $500. Less then two weeks later he was able to get my warrant quashed.

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
