I have to say, i am fortunate to have found Russell when i did. Went thru 3 different attorneys within 3 years of the start of my case, and it took less than 2 months to do what they couldn't. Wish i had hired Russell sooner, but grateful i did when i did. When things were all falling apart, he helped me as quick as he could and with very good results to my satisfaction, and couldnt have been at a better time than he did. I would recommend him and his firm to anyone i know, and most certainly will hire him again if i ever need to in the future.

This was by far the best legal experience one could hope for! Attorney Serpa was diligent in responding to my needs. When you ask him a question his responses and thoughts are expressed in a very clear and concise manner. He prevented a life changing event from negatively impacting my life. If you have any criminal issues, problems or charges or anything, you really should call Joe Serpa. He is one of the few attorneys’ that I know who will give you their cell phone number and take calls and text at any hour day or night. Thank you Joe!

I had an excellent experience with Richard Mable. It was a hard time for me and Richard was by my side listening and being very caring and he got the job done. He is an outstanding Lawyer and I will say this I've dealt with other Lawyers and Richard is the guy for you. He stands out being Supportive and Outstanding. He will fight for you and for me he protected me. He's very professional. I had two times that we had to hire Richard. One was with my son and I stood back and watched how he handle him and he did very well. He got him off and now he has a clean record we were never sorry for getting in touch with Richard Mable to handle the case. I had him for divorce and children issues and he got more than what I thought and when you are raising children you need that person in your court to fight for you all the way. So if you are looking for a lawyer pick up the phone and call Richard W. Mable, Esq.

After talking to Trevor Clement he said I didn't need an attorney yet since there wasn't any paperwork filed against me in my boyfriends divorce. He was polite, knowledgeable, professional, and instead of just taking my money right away he told me to wait for paperwork. He also offered to help my boyfriend find an attorney that would fit his needs during this divorce and to talk to him free of charge.

Paul is an excellent attorney! I would definitely recommend him over anyone else. Paul was very real with me and gave me great advice. The case I had was a jurisdiction/child custody case. He worked very hard to ensure I had everything I needed to take on my case. As unique as my case was we came out on top and I cannot thank Paul enough! Very pleased with everything he has done for us. Thank you again so much Paul!

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'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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    How do you find a good immigration lawyer?

    Research is key to finding a good immigration lawyer. The immigration process can be overwhelming and complex, so a trustworthy advocate is critical. When you have identified several eligible candidates, verify their immigration law license to protect yourself and your finances. Once you have a set of licensed immigration lawyers in mind, choose one based on these considerations:

    • Mutual respect: You want an immigration lawyer who treats you and your family with kindness and consideration. You’ll do the same for them.
    • Availability: Before hiring, note if they have responded promptly to your emails and calls. You don’t want to hire someone you have to chase around.
    • Proven success: Read former client reviews and research their success rate with cases similar to yours.
    • Transparent rates: Ask directly about what their rates are, how they bill, and what they estimate your legal fees will be. Ask if they will sign a fee agreement, and get receipts for all fees paid.
    • Verify who will handle your case: Sometimes junior lawyers work on firm cases. This is okay, as long as you have discussed it and are comfortable with it. When junior lawyers or paralegals are working on your case, ask if the hourly rate is lower.
    • Be wary of anyone who promises you specific results: No case is certain, and the immigration lawyer should be honest about what you can expect.

    How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

    Immigration lawyers are experts in the nuances of the highly complex United States immigration system. They help clients of all backgrounds petition for immigration status and become U.S. citizens, and can represent clients who are facing deportation or detention. Nationally, the cost people pay for immigration lawyers averages $500-$1,010. The services you need will have a huge effect on your costs. For routines cases, such as applying for a travel visa, an immigration lawyer may be able to confidently quote you a set price, while more open-ended cases may be billed at an hourly rate of $200-$500, or more, depending on the reputation and experience of the firm and lawyer. Before hiring an immigration lawyer, ask what their plan for your case is and what expected costs may be. Many immigration lawyers work from retainers, and request a set amount of money upfront from which to work. For example, a lawyer who charges $300 per hour may estimate $4,000 for a standard family-based immigration case, the common process in which a U.S. citizen petitions for permanent residency for their spouse, fiancee or family members.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
