Wow, what a nice lady. Holly and her staff were so kind when I went into to meet with them. I had spoken with several other attorneys and nothing seemed to feel right until I met with Holly. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, and explain the bankruptcy, and make me feel at ease. I feel like I can finally breath again. Thank You so much Holly.

She literally saved my life in the divorce after 2 other lawyers really did me wrong. I recommend her to anyone, especially women, who are in a seemingly no win situation with their divorce.

We needed an immigration lawyer and hired Mr. Mcvicker based on a recommendation by a family friend, who also happens to be one of the best attorneys in the DMV area. Mr. Mcvicker did not disappoint! He prepared us for every single step of the immigration process, ensuring we had all of the required documentation by USCIS. He was transparent, and also flexible with his schedule, often meeting with us after standard business hours or on the weekends. Mr. Mcvicker was accessible via email any day of the week always responded promptly. Suffice to say we encountered no problems throughout the process, and that's all thanks to Mr. Mcvicker!

Mr. Rosenthall came highly recommended from a colleague and my experience with him exceeded all expectations. I found him to be very professional, respectful, and honest. The line of communication was always open and he answered all of my questions with very detailed responses. Unlike other attorneys I've hired before, I got the genuine sense that Mr. Rosenthall really cares for his clients which is very rare with any professional services these days.

So far I've only received a consultation from Janet but what I can say is that she truly wants to help clients instead of draining their wallets. Eventually I will need legal assistance with my case but Janet will be there when I do, as opposed to other attorneys who seem to create the need (along with the hefty price tag).

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.

I have had a great experience working with Jay. He was highly responsive, actively listened to the intricacies of my legal matter, and ultimately provide me some great options for resolution. His retainer was very reasonable, and I feel I received great value for the money paid. I will continue to retain him as my personal attorney for corporate law matters, and would highly recommend him to others.

I am still working with Ms. McKinley but so far I have only positive feedback about working with her. She communicates back via email or phone call, she is responsive to suggestions, she doesn’t sugar coat and she will work with you. When working with attorneys, the hardest part is getting them to call you back. She at least notifies you if she is delayed or needs to get back to you, instead of leaving you wondering what is next. I am using her as my divorce attorney. I wouldn’t want any of my friends or family to go through divorce, but if so I would certainly recommend Ms. McKinley.

I had a 5 star experience with Stringfield & Associates, LLC! I was in a time crunch and required immediate legal assistance regarding a business matter. John Stringfield responded to my quote very quickly and adjusted his work schedule to fit me in. He provided excellent customer service and legal advice. I can honestly say that I am a customer for life whenever any future business legal matters arise, and I strongly recommend them.

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.
