I hired Mrs. Dawson to represent me as an attorney for a Family Court case that turned Criminal. This case was for a same sex relationship. As much as we would like to think same sex people are not discriminated in the court system (I unfortunately felt a small amount of prejudice). It was hard calling around the lawyers explaining the situation and receiving price quotes. I was connected with Mrs Dawson through thumbtack thinking it would make the process of finding an attorney less grouling. If you have any doubt on hiring Mrs Dawson to represent you, stop now and hire her. she is amazing! A true professional and very knowledgable with the court system and laws. She made my case a breeze and I also felt she was on my side without prejudice & judgement of who I am. Made very confident and comfortable. She had just the right balance of compassion and professionalism and was able to "tell it like it is" including all of my options and rights I had moving forward in court. After hiring her my case moved along quickly and she took complete charge. I cannot say enough good things about my experience dealing with Mrs Dawson! Her presence makes you feel comfortable and confident. She tells it like it is, makes no false hopes and gets it done for you. She worked hard on my case and made it look like a cynch on her part. I had little to do once I hired her. Her pricing is very fair. I felt I received a lot for my money. Communication was quick and perfect. Thank you Mrs Dawson. If I ever need to use her again, I will 100% and I will also recommend her to friends, family and colleagues 100% I am overly joyful with the outcome of my case and having the chance to work with Mrs Dawson. Some attorneys just try to get things over with as quick as possible and sometimes using methods that can effect you later in life. Mrs Dawson fought for the outcome I received, didn't just wait to see what would happen or take the easiest escape route possible. Truly amazed by this attorneys job done on my case!!

My wife Megan, was in some financial difficulty before we married. As a result dhe had to file bankruptcy. Tim was very professional and made the process very easy for her. It's never great being in a stressful situation like that but Tim lessened it to a degree and was with my wife through the entire process. He even petitioned the courts to allow her to pay her filing fee in installments which is something we were unaware she could do. Tim's fee was extremely reasonable and he didn't try to rip her off like other lawyers tried to. If you need a solid, professional attorney at a reasonable price, please hire Tim for your bankruptcy needs.

    I have only consulted with Ms Broadbent but the consult was extremely thorough and left me with no need to go forward with lawyer representation. She was professional and honest and straightforward. If I find myself in similar circumstances, I will be seeking out her services first.

      Attorney Inga is an exceptional person. He agreed to take on my case when my first lawyer resigned from representing me due to a conflict of interest with an opposing lawyer. He is hard working, committed to his clients, and very loyal. After a two year battle in probate court he won my case. Excellent. If you look up the word attorney his picture would be there. Let me not forget Hide Inga has the patience of a saint! Thank you.

      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.
