I have had the pleasure to work with Mr. Cho for my petition to become a permanent resident through family. Although my case was a pretty straight forward case, I had had unpleasant experiences with other lawyers, including a few that are advertised as top lawyers on Thumbtack, before I met Mr. Cho. Unlike all those experiences, Mr. Cho handled my case superbly. He is extremely responsive (even after work hours), has great attention to detail, is very knowledgable, and never gives false hope. When you ask him a question, he shares his experience and tells you all the possibilities that you may face, so you (and he as well) always have a back-up plan. Like I said, my case was not complicated; however, recently prolonged processing times of USCIS almost costed me my career. Mr. Cho saved the future of me and my family by expediting the process and I received my work permit in a very short time. He has all the virtues and more that you might expect from a lawyer. I would advice anyone seeking an immigration lawyer to work with Mr. Cho without any hesitation.

My overall experience with Dr. Tamara Relis and RelisLaw PLLC was great! They assisted me on each step of the green card renewal process and I felt they were really taken good care of me. The entire process is online, you can submit all of the evidences/documents by email and an online portal that helps in speeding the entire application process. We all have busy life and the fact that everything was done online was really helpful!! Dr. Tamara Relis has been lovely and really helpful, she has been there (and still here) anytime I needed her, even during the weekends. It was really easy to communicate both via email and calls with Dr. Tamara and the team at the RelisLaw Office (Coby in the office was a great help too!). I do believe Dr. Tamara gave me the best advices and I know she will be there for any future legal advice I will need. I have had other lawyers in the past few years, and I have always felt they looked at my case only like “another short term transaction”. With Dr. Tamara, on the contrary, I perceived that she will follow me during the entire process (that can be really lengthy) giving me updates in the upcoming months and she will help me in the future if I will need legal advice again. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with the updates and timelines/deadlines of the USCIS, and I know that Dr. Tamara will give me updates when there will be in the upcoming months. And this is definitely a great help! Eleonora P.

Mr. Zachary Meyer Esq. is by far the most attentive, reliable, and trustworthy attorney I've had the pleasure of working with. He effectively negotiated my landlord-tenant occupancy dispute to relieve me from the stress of the situation. This case was particularly complicated as it involved a big management company that outright deprived me of my civil rights with no concern at all for the potential legal consequences of their actions since they had abundant resources and lawyers to drag on the case for however long they wanted and used them to harass and bully me. Zachary was responsive to my questions, concerns, and took the time to understand the complex nuances of the situation, allowing me to be completely comfortable knowing that he was addressing the issues and representing my point of view accurately and with authority. In addition to his exceptional legal practice, he is simply a good human being and a pleasure to speak with, the most important qualities that I would want in my attorney. He is definitely a rarity in his field and the one you would want to hire! Thanks again for everything!

Leah is a no non-sense lawyer who always takes the time to explain things in layman's terms. I never felt like I asked a stupid question or had an invalid concern. Leah always returns telephone calls, texts, and emails promptly which is rare in today's busy world. It was a pleasure working with her on my case.

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.

After years of trying to resolve a very difficult situation that led us through three different lawyers and depleted our savings, someone recommended Darryl L. Wynn Esq. At first we didn't have much hope with our prior experience but Mr. Wynn managed, through dedication and perseverance, to find the answer and now my husband, after waiting for 8 years, will be able to adjust his status and we can really begin to live our lives. Mr. Wynn has a 'never give up' attitude and will keep you sane when you are ready to give up. Don't hesitate to bring all your immigration needs to his office, from the simplest to the most intricate, he will find a way to solve your problem. He is very busy and may not be able to take your call on the spot, but will call you back, even at crazy hours, which only proves his dedication to his clients and his desire to get them the best results. We are living proof of that.

I felt like I was in really good hands with Richard handling my case. I particularly appreciated how he always responded to my emails without any delay and encouraged me to feel free to message him with any concerns that I might have had while we awaited for word from the judge. He was also very flexible with his time and went above and beyond when working around my now ex husband's very busy and limited schedule. Having him for a lawyer in a situation that I was completely unfamiliar with put me at considerable ease and I feel very fortunate.

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.
