Attorney Rosenthal was outstanding. I would and will highly recommend them to anyone I know who needs an attorney. One of the great aspects was that I could reach him with questions any time through text messages and emails which was convenient and made the process so much easier - I received answers to my questions immediately. Also, when I first posted my situation when looking for a new lawyer, out of all the attorney's that answered my initial post he is the only one who I felt really read and paid attention to my post. His answer personally addressed my particular situation and none of the others did. Excellent and very knowledgeable - I would actually give them 10 stars if possible!!

Recently, my wife and I required the services of an attorney to represent us before a local government board due to a problem concerning our German Shepherd dog. Having never needed an attorney before in my life , I contacted the local lawyer referral services to find someone with expertise in the area of "animal law". It turns out there are few attorney knowledgeable in this particular area of law and after considerable searching I was given the name of Attorney Mable but was informed that his practice was not in my local area.   I contacted Atty. Mable and he asked me to give a full explanation of the problem.  After listening to my situation he said he would represent us and agreed to appear before the board even though it was outside his normal geographical area.   At our first meeting Atty. Mable immediately put us at ease due to his friendly, courteous manner.  His questions were concise and on point which showed us he completely understood our situation and was able to formulate a strategy which presented our case in the best possible way.   Atty. Mable offered, if I were willing, to have me collect some of the paperwork, reports, etc., that would be needed for the hearing rather than having him spend time obtaining these documents. In this way it would reduce the total cost of his representation.    I found Atty. Mable to be professional and meticulous in his preparation, he phoned or E-mailed questions when he needed clarification, he kept us informed of his progress and immediately responded to our phone calls or E-mails.   The time and effort Atty. Mable expended was apparent to us and was greatly appreciated but most impressive was his sincere interest in helping us solve, what was to my wife and I, a seemingly unsolvable problem.        To sum up our experience with Atty. Mable, I would just say that if I or anyone in my family required the services of an attorney for any reason, I would without hesitation contact Atty. Mable to ask his assistance.

I would highly recommend Kotoni Law Offices attorney Gazion Kotoni to anyone who is looking for a competent, compassionate and highly motivated lawyer. Gazion was highly professional and extremely accommodating in my bankruptcy case. I never felt like I was “just another client”. With my past financials and stress over the matter, Gazion took the burden of getting everything for my case ready along with his requests of information. Gazion then took the necessary requirements to make the bankruptcy experience painless, friendly and very affordable. I would also like to say thanks for continuing to serve me even after my bankruptcy [and] continue sending myself updates and e-mails which is a very personal touch. Kind Regards, Myke-

I'll let you be the judge of Attorney Bombay, here's how my agreement for the Job with him went: I extended my need for a contract out to thumbtack.com for an upcoming business venture with another party. Jeremy was the first to respond to me and quoted me at $175 an hour, please see 'Bombard1' for the snippet of the conversation. Thinking this was a reasonable price, I agree to hire Jeremy for the contract. I then get sent a 'Fee Agreement' which has a clause that the 'Client agrees to pay $500 as an initial retainer', please see attached 'Bombard2' picture. Puzzled by this, I asked Jeremy for clarification and what the $500 fee was for. I was told that the initial consultation was not charged, and after that the $500 retainer would be applied to any outstanding balance. Please see 'Bombard 3' attached screen shot. Still thinking this is ludicrous, I went along thinking the $500 would be the cost of the whole thing. Not a great price at all, but at this point I really just needed the contract done. Jeremy calls me up on Memorial Day to get some information about what's needed in the contract. Says he should have something by the end of the week, I say no rush as my other party joining this is in the middle of a move herself and to just let me know when it's completed. Get another email from Jeremy asking for clarification for a few things, and then finally I'm hit with a $437.50 charge for Jeremy's time on this contract. This is where things get infuriating, as I spoke to several lawyers in the meantime whom informed me something like this should take an hour or two tops to make. Price all in should be around $250-$300 max. As you can see with these pictures, I ended up paying $937.50 after being quoted $175 an hour for the job. If we take Jeremy's original offer, he supposedly took 5 and a half hours to write this contract that he ended up giving me 3 weeks late. The icing on the cake is I was let go from my employer yesterday and am looking into legal matters for unpaid overtime this past winter. Jeremy informs me he does not handle termination suits, but refers me to his buddy who would 'Take good care of me'. After an initial half hour on the phone with his 'buddy' attorney, I'm quoted at $300 an hour for the job, told I probably don't have a case at all but should start writing a 'Demand Letter' and send it to him for his approval. Oh and just so I knew, Jeremy would likely be getting some piece of the supposedly tough to get the upcoming payout for a referral. Instantly declined this lawyer's service and said I do not want to move forward with him, then thought it would be best to share my experience with Bombard Law for anyone whom is considering hiring Jeremy for their legal needs.

Rachel helped me through a contested property division process. The division of property - occurring some 13 years after the divorce itself - was opposed by my ex, who wanted to disregard the Settlement Agreement. Rachel was wonderful in her grasp of the situation, in explaining the options available, and then guiding me through the Court proceeding itself. I cannot help but believe that if Rachel had been my original divorce attorney I would never have been in the situation I found myself in. Smarts, warmth, and a sense of humor and perspective - quite a winning combination!

I hired Attorney Merritt last November for a criminal defense case. It was the best decision I could have made. Steve was prompt, thorough, and professional. He got me through a very difficult time. He is now working with me on a family situation. This is a much slower process I am being kept up to date as necessary. By the way, Kristin is awesome, too.

I was in a very serious car accident and fractured my femur. I needed two surgeries and was in a wheelchair for 2 months. In all, my recovery took about a year and a half. I hired the law offices Joel H. Schwartz and they were terrific. It was an extremely scary time for me, and I am so glad I had these guys to help me through it. They were not only my lawyers, but my therapists as well! They give you so much confidence that you know everything is being taken care of properly. The 2 year process was great, and my compensation for all I went through was more than I expected. I would recommend this firm in a heartbeat to anyone hurt in an accident. They are honest and will work hard for you.

Melanie Soloman became my divorce attorney and instantly a weight came off my shoulders. The stress of raising 2 children with child support in the arrears too much to say, I felt as though the 3 of us where a joke to the other party. I felt lost, how could a divorce be such a big deal that people stress and worry for years. Melanie Soloman answered all my questions willingly, truthfully, and somehow made sense of it all. Absolutely by far Melanie Soloman is exactly the lawyer I needed back in 2010. Prompt, factual, trustworthy and just a suberb Divorce Attorney.

Goode Law Office was very responsive and gave us a quick and fair quote for Real Estate sale work. Stephen put in the extra hours and is very professional. We greatly appreciate his knowledge and assistance and strongly recommend Goode Law Office for any Real Estate or Estate challenges. We only wish we had hired Goode Law Office earlier in the process. Don't trust a realtor, who suggests getting a lawyer after the P & S is signed, or one who represents both the seller and the buyer. Our realtor did both and is the seller-of-the-month several times over at Jack Conway Realty in Middleborough. Don't go there!

I recently filed for bankruptcy. This was my first time filing and first time working with a lawyer. From the very beginning He was genuinely concerned about working towards lifting the weight off my shoulders and helping me through the entire process. He even beat a competetor's price which he did not have to do. Overall, he helped me through the bankruptcy and it felt like a breeze. no headache, no pile of paperwork, and no calls from creditors. Attorney Robert Creasia guided me through the entire process and did virtually all the work and kept me updated and reassured the whole time. Thank You so very much!!

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
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
