Our family consulted Min Won Cho regarding a 7-year old immigration case. Prior to meeting with him, we had worked with several immigration attorneys who were not successful in reversing the decision made by US Immigration authorities. Needless to say, this experience left us discouraged, disheartened, and overwhelmed. Upon meeting with Min Won, we were impressed with his honesty. He was 100% upfront, never giving us any false hope. Mr. Cho kept our feet to the ground and did not present us with expectations of something he was not absolutely sure of. We immediately felt confident he was “The Attorney” we needed. Min Won’s dedication to our case and attention to detail paid off. He was able to discover an important aspect that was overlooked by other attorneys but ended up being crucial in winning our case. Our family was finally reunited and we owe it all to Min Won. Mr. Cho’s impeccable ethics and an unparalleled work ethic make him an outstanding attorney who is capable, meticulous, and diligent. We highly recommend Min Won Cho to anyone who is in need of an amazing Immigration Attorney. The Bezhenar Family, Syracuse NY

It was a great experience to work with the RelisLaw and with Tamara. Finally, I have found a reliable lawyer who took me seriously and my case. Unfortunately, before I contacted with her I had to experience how hard is to find a reliable attorney who is willing to do something. I wasted my time with 2 others and when I called her, I was in the last minute in front of a court case. I told her, this is an urgent case and I have no more time to waste. She was absolutely on it to provide everything what I need. In addition, I could contact with her on phone as many times as I needed and she was ready to answer my questions. She was very informed from the first time and supplied with trustworthy informations. Million thanks for her support! I won my case and this is affect a lot for my current life and for my future. I recommended her all of my friends and I definitely recommend for anyone! Best wishes Tamara and God bless you!

Ellis helped me through a emotionally difficult legal matter, he made a painful and scary experience much less painful. He was the only attorney I consulted with that did not try to scare me into hiring him. He was straightforward and kind in every interaction we had. He spoke with me at length on the phone and in person before he was hired to handle my case. His assistant Lindsay was very sweet, and helpful as well. He was not the cheapest attorney, but you get what you pay for apparently. Ellis was worth every penny. In my case, he surpassed even his own expectations, maybe luck was on my side. Regardless, Ellis was extremely effective, and this rave review is a 100% genuine. I highly recommend his services.

It would be a lot of writing here to express how wonderful it has been to work with an attorney who encompasses so much knowledge and confidence as Leah E. Capese, Esq., However, above and beyond all of the qualities highlighted above only introduce Ms. Capese. She possesses a very special quality of in-site and compassion for her clients. Her dedication, ethics, and individualized attention to each entity in resolving all of the issues at hand are absolutely amazing. Ms. Capese so graciously accepts the hard work and the burdens she may face with each client in order to accomplish her goal which gave me a very personal relief from all of the stress and I confidently knew my case was in good hands. These qualities of honesty, compassion, responsiveness, values, professionalism only exemplify her vast knowledge of law. One of the best choices I have ever made.

Mr. Schutz. Is my Attorney for two very disagreeable Tenants-Landlord Cases. I was a total wreck. He came in calm, efficient, extremely knowledgeable and handled.everything. He kept me informed as needed, I asked to be removed from the dealings. He told me what would be done and did it. He DID NOT misinform me about anything. He was totally my Attorney, understanding, reasonable. knowledgeable . I was dealing with a sick parent with no time or patience to deal with an unreasonable situation, Mr. Schutz took it all in stride and handled everything accordingly. I can't begin to tell you how much I respect his professionalism, and client respect. He might refer me on but any legal problems that might come my way I will always call him first. I will always have his card, and he will always be recommended by me as the best Attorney around.

So far, so good. Although there were cheaper lawyers out there, I feel assured and taken care off. Their first impressions have left me feeling satisfied that my money is not being wasted. First divorce case is tomorrow (7/19/18) and I'm feeling relieved to having them work with me in coming to an agreement with my soon to be ex spouse. Very professional I must say and both Yelena and Chad took the time to hear my concerns and the issues I currently had. Not regretting my decision so far...

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.
