At age 65, I contacted Marcus to help me with a spousal maintenance reduction regarding my ex-wife. Enen though I was retired with a reduction in income, I know this was not going to be easy. In fact, I had interviewed 3 lawyers for this job along with 2 other lawyers I had used previously. I feel very fortunate I chose Marcus for this difficult task. From the beginning, he has shown such professionalism; and, I have never once been disappointed. In my case, there were years of details and financials to digest, understand and present in a meaningful way. Through lots of hard work and intelligence , he developed a very comprehensive, thorough approach. He is very smart ; and, always has good ideas. He is a hard worker, a good listener and a good communicator. Above all, he is honest, non judgmental to all and a man of character. I highly recommend Marcus and appreciate all his hard work and attention to detail.

Great lawyer. If you need a pitbull, Nick's your guy. You might not guess it when you first meet him, but in court he's all claws and teeth. First, he completely shredded my wife's expert witness, to the point that the judge admonished her counsel for calling him. Then, through dogged research, he found many thousands my wife tried to hide. I thought I was going to end up broke. Paying alimony and child support, and still becoming a stranger to my kids. Well, Nick got the alimony demand nullified, got us a fair deal on child support, shared custody, and enough visitation for me to help my kids heal and grow. Sucks when you need a lawyer, but when you do, you can't get better than Nick.

About

I provide assistance with personal and small business bankruptcy filings and representation in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Most people call me Dave. At my Minnetonka, Minnesota office, I have been practicing law in the Twin Cities area for almost 35 years. In late 2005, a reform act was passed which was supposed to make filing bankruptcy more difficult. Since then, however, I have helped lots of clients qualify to file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. While the paperwork has become a lot more complicated, most people who need to are still able to file. In fact, it seems that bankruptcy filings are higher than ever, both nationally and in Minnesota. If you would like to talk this over, I would be glad to discuss your situation on the phone. In about 15 minutes, I can do a screening that would give us a fairly good idea as to whether a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a good idea for 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.
