I recommend Dynah Duncan-White. When my wife came to me and said she wanted a Divorce, I knew a lawyer would be called, "Dee", she goes by. The first time I meet her I knew she had my back; she is trustworthy, honest, and straight to the point. She always said "one day at a time". I've heard other attorneys are just looking out for themselves. Not her. I recommended her to friends at work, and now they are being counseled by Dee. Thank you Dee! It means a lot. I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again.

I have worked with many attorneys at a professional level and as a client. Attorney Goldman is the most prepared and the smartest at the negotiating table or in front of a judge. His legal writing is succinct and well supported with research. He never pads the bill and often works immediately without money to simply understand the problem you are facing. I have referred him to many and never once heard a complaint of padding the bill or over charging. He simply is the best.

Working in the legal field can be rather challenging at times. Needless to say, having a firm grasp on the law and knowing how to apply it to ones case can mean all the difference between winning your war or getting less than you deserve. Having had the pleasure of working with this firm in both a personal and professional capacity, I would have to say that this firm goes out of it's way to accommodate it's clients no matter how great or small the issue may be. Whatever situation you might be facing, I would advise you to take it serious & seek advice from these folks. A poor choice of attorneys can lead to years of regret!. So give them a call, I think you'll agree with me once speak with them. Hope this helps those who read this. Sincerely, a grateful individual

Greg was an affordable attorney who was able to get my divorce completed smoothly. He was very responsive to my questions/concerns and handled everything in a professional manner. On my court date (I was very anxious) he made sure I was comfortable and prepared. I have no complaints and would recommend him to friends/family.

I wish I would have found him sooner! He is also very reasonably priced. I spoke to a few attorneys about my situation and his response, thought process, understanding of the case and plans to defend and defeat the Plaintiff, was far above any of the attorneys I spoke with. I cannot thank him enough!! if there were a way to give more stars I would!!

There are many options for attorneys out there although when I met with Eric at Fraiberg & Pernie PLLC I knew instantly that my case would be handled properly . Eric is very honest and will give you the ultimate best advice for your situation . Since Eric has been handling my case he has been extremely responsive and knowledgeable, if I shall ever need a lawyer again Eric would be my first choice ! I will refer him to anyone that needs legal attention

My case has just started but I've days and many hours looking for the right attorney that I cold actually afford most lawyers wanted the majority of the money up front and paid off within 30 days. Mr.Quinn was able to work with me with what I was able to pay and gave me a reasonable price and time to pay off my balance. He has always responded promptly to any question I've asked and after meeting him I have faith that he will help me get out of some serious charges. I will post another review the my case is over.

Me. George listened to my problem and had an exact plan of action right away that he kept me informed on in each phase of my case. He has tons of experience working in courts all over Wayne, Macomb and Oakland county and I am confident that his relationships with prosecutors and legal workers is what helps him accomplish the goals of his clients. (I say this because I can tell that relationships play a big part in how he works with his clients. He knows me and my background. He doesn't just tear me like a case number.) I was really pleased with my outcome and even though he wasn't the cheapest lawyer that I talked to I felt he was the most competent and in the end he was worth every penny I paid.

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.
