I cannot say enough wonderful things about this law firm! From the moment I talked to Erik on the phone, he put my mind at ease. I was so ashamed that I had to file bankruptcy, but Erik made me realize that things happen, and I'm not alone. Throughout the entire process, he was there to answer all of my questions. I'm pretty sure I asked the same question about keeping my car at least a dozen times! Each time, Erik had no problem answering the question and explaining everything. I met Holly on the day of my meeting, and like Erik, she was super helpful and friendly! I have already recommended them to family, and if for some reason I need an attorney, I know the first place I will call!

Alisha Gordon made me feel comfortable right away after meeting her. She patiently explained the process of filing bankruptcy petition and she kept me abreast of her progress during the entire process. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a professional attorney.

I have used Mr. Traub twice and he has also worked with my mother in the past. He is a fantastic attorney who truly cares about his client and their outcome. Mr. Traub is selfless, professional and astonishingly knowledgeable when it comes to the law. I wouldn't trust another attorney with a civil or criminal case. He is truly impeccable, a one-in-a-million attorney. I would highly recommend.

Mr. Stein was my attorney when I declared bankruptcy. He was supportive and available at all times. He answered my questions patiently .. Even when I asked the same ones over and over. He made sure I understood the process , and was by my side throughout everything . He was professional, and the matter was handed quickly and painlessly. The experience was made more pleasant because of Mr. Stein . I would highly recommend Mr Stein, and would hire him again for any other legal matters.

I was recently a client of Rachel's and I have nothing but great feedback on her services as an immigration attorney. I met her four years ago during one of the most difficult times in my life and throughout the entire process of me becoming a permanent resident, rachel's dedication to my case was stellar. I truly appreciated her prompt responses to my many questions and the way she interpreted the law so I could understand it. I recommend her services to anyone looking for a friendly, empathetic and able attorney.

Adam has been my personal lawyer since he graduated from law school. He is educated in all phases of law but has built his practice around bankruptcy law. I have watched him in court and he always appears to impress judges with his manner, approach, and knowledge of law.

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).

Very professional, Very easy to work and very knowledgeable. Even before I hire him, he was very responsive to questions and options. Other law firms and attorneys insisted on a face to face meeting prior to hiring. Anthony was okay with allowing multiple questions before engaging into a contract. His estimate for fees were not only good but were not as high as expected and I got a refund. I highly recommend! He saved me at least $2000 in unnecessary legal fees.

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 highly recommend contacting Harpreet for any contractual issue. He is my colleague and is a fantastic attorney. Harpreet understands the importance of turning a burdensome agreement into one that serves the needs of both parties. He also has a keen eye for spotting potential problems before they arise, and resolving them before the pen hits the paper. With regard to negotiations, he fights zealously for his clients to obtain the best possible results. Highly recommended.

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.

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 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 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.
