Mr. Cho provided exceptional and personalized service to my case. He was very assertive and precise with his approach. He has a wealth of knowledge which is applied strategically to each case. Personally I was very pleased with his approach, it made me comfortable. He was always on top of things and kept me updated with the progress. Although, there was a minor hiccup in between my petition - no fault of Mr. Cho. He was still able to produce maximum results in a timely manner. Mr. Cho is the perfect attorney for your immigration case. You will not be disappointed.

Recently, I had the need to find an Immigration attorney in order to help friends whom my wife and I met in Cuba. As it stands today – the American Embassy in Havana has been closed for Consular activities – and those friends, previously confirmed and approved for US Immigration, found themselves in legal limbo. As a US Naturalized Citizen of almost (40) years, I fully understand the process, but was at a loss to who to approach. I am short of superlatives to describe the great, no – SUPERB experience I had by contacting the RelisLaw. In my many years of professional transactions on behalf of one of the 100 largest Global companies, I can hardly recall many as dedicated, attentive and carrying - as Dr. Tamara Relis. Dr. Relis engaged immediately into research of the specific situation and was able to find enough background material to shed enough on the difficult situation to provide a logical path to greatly assist with the application process. I found RelisLaw legal practice knowledge of laws, rules – and most important – the sound direction and advice invaluable. Many thanks Dr. Relis.

Mr. Balmer is representing me in a Family Court matter that is complicated and time consuming. All I can say is that I am impressed with his professionalism. Mr. Balmer has and continues to addressed and resolved issues that are 17 years old. He is most experienced in putting my mind to rest and giving me confidence that each matter is looked at carefully, assessed and ready for a resolution that is favorable to my case. I am very happy working with Mr. Balmer. Significantly, I chose to work with him having researched a number of other attorneys who claim to have much more experience. Sometimes it is not what is said....but the way it is said and the action behind it. Needless to say, I am happy with my choice.

Glenn did an excellent job representing me. I found him to be professional, knowledgeable and thorough in every detail. Hopefully I will never need an attorney to represent me in another criminal case, but if I did I wouldn't hesitate to use Glenn again.

I was recently arrested for DUI and received six summonses. I was originally looking at a year and a half license suspension, plus MAXIMUM fines!!! With the help of my attorney Corrinne and VERY capable paralegal Kayla, I had five of the six summonses dismissed, an $800.00 fine and my license suspended ONLY for three months!!! Needless to say, I was VERY SATISFIED with the outcome and I would GREATLY RECOMMEND their services to anyone needing capable litigation.

I had a visitation case that Pashan helped me with. He asked a lot of good questions to gain a good knowledge of my situation. He went out of his way to meet up with me to discuss everything after office hours because I had a crazy work schedule.He was always easy to reach from his cellphone and answered all my questions and concerns. My case was In the Bronx, so he was willing to travel and had arrived earlier than I did to assure that we were seen right away. He was very professional and represented me very well. I am completely satisfied with the outcome, and may I add that I consulted with several family law lawyers before meeting Pashan and his rates were the best.

I endorse Eli Moore wholeheartedly and would recommend him without reservation to anyone who needs a traffic or criminal attorney. Mr. Moore handled my motorcycle ticket in such a professional and competent manner that I referred him to other attorneys in my office as well as my own brother, who is also an attorney. Mr. Moore expertly cross-examined the police officer who had given me the ticket. He had a thorough knowledge of the law and what it would take to discredit the officer's testimony. In fact, he did such a good job that near the end of his cross, the Judge interrupted him and dismissed the ticket, commenting that she didn't understand why the cop issued the ticket in the first place. As a colleague in criminal and supreme court, I have seen Mr. Moore handle dozens of criminal cases. He is always prepared, diligent and conscientious while vigorously defending his clients. I wish he would let me put him on retainer to handle all my traffic and speeding tickets!

Mr. Rapps and his entire staff were wonderful to work with. They took the time and explained everything to me and answered all my questions in a way that I was able to understand. Often times when dealing with a law firm, you don't speak directly with an attorney. Not with this firm, Mr. Rapps would return my phone calls and respond to my emails. I highly recommend this firm.

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.
