Martin did an excellent job in representing me for a unique bankruptcy case. Even though I was above the median income, and therefore failing the means test, Martin was able to achieve a Chapter 7 discharge. Most attorneys and clients would avoid filing a Chapter 7 for that reason, and file a Chapter 13 instead. Everything was done in a professional and timely manner. I appreciated that he took the time to thoroughly explain every question that I had. When I became concerned about the ability to achieve the Chapter 7 discharge, Martin calmly expressed his confidence in his ability to succeed and convinced me to stay the course. If anyone would ever ask if anyone knows of a good bankruptcy attorney, I will strongly recommend Martin!

I had a family member who was facing felony charges. The whole experience was very unnerving and left me feeling unsteady and unsure. I knew I wanted someone who would represent us honestly and professionally in the courtroom. I googled defense attorneys and thumbtack popped up. I answered a series of questions and then left a brief summary of what the circumstances were for my family member. Within the hour, Mr Sheets responded via email with a brief summary of expectations and cost as well as being very open to a phone call that very evening! I was so relieved to get his professional help. After I called Michael Sheets, I was even more hopeful just understanding what the steps would be during this whole process. If you're like me, you have never had to deal with this sort of legal situation and you just don't know what to do next. Michael was very understanding, honest, put us at ease by educating us on the process and remained very available to answer our questions. His professional experience truly assisted us with maneuvering through the legal system. With his expertise, the felony became a misdemeanor! I am very grateful that i reached out to him. I highly recommend Michael Sheets!

Josh is the most efficient, effective, well-prepared, and professional attorney, in the midst of a very taxing and stressful process. I was in the trustee meeting and witnessed two attorneys and their clients who were ill-prepared and honestly it was very unprofessional. As I sat and witnessed the difference between Josh and the other attorneys present, I was elated I had chosen him. This process for me was truly overwhelming and he made it feel like it was going to be ok in the long run. I would definitely recommend him and I guarantee the entire bankruptcy will feel less stressful because he does his job above and beyond your expectations.

Bill Graham has been my Patent Attorney since 1989 - 58 issued patents ago. In addition to a law degree, Bill has a Ph.D. in Chemistry - so he understands technology better than most. His prices are reasonable - actually low compared to many others - and he gets results. He has an easy-going personality and takes the time to get it right.

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.

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.

How do you find a good immigration lawyer?

Research is key to finding a good immigration lawyer. The immigration process can be overwhelming and complex, so a trustworthy advocate is critical. When you have identified several eligible candidates, verify their immigration law license to protect yourself and your finances. Once you have a set of licensed immigration lawyers in mind, choose one based on these considerations:

  • Mutual respect: You want an immigration lawyer who treats you and your family with kindness and consideration. You’ll do the same for them.
  • Availability: Before hiring, note if they have responded promptly to your emails and calls. You don’t want to hire someone you have to chase around.
  • Proven success: Read former client reviews and research their success rate with cases similar to yours.
  • Transparent rates: Ask directly about what their rates are, how they bill, and what they estimate your legal fees will be. Ask if they will sign a fee agreement, and get receipts for all fees paid.
  • Verify who will handle your case: Sometimes junior lawyers work on firm cases. This is okay, as long as you have discussed it and are comfortable with it. When junior lawyers or paralegals are working on your case, ask if the hourly rate is lower.
  • Be wary of anyone who promises you specific results: No case is certain, and the immigration lawyer should be honest about what you can expect.

How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

Immigration lawyers are experts in the nuances of the highly complex United States immigration system. They help clients of all backgrounds petition for immigration status and become U.S. citizens, and can represent clients who are facing deportation or detention. Nationally, the cost people pay for immigration lawyers averages $500-$1,010. The services you need will have a huge effect on your costs. For routines cases, such as applying for a travel visa, an immigration lawyer may be able to confidently quote you a set price, while more open-ended cases may be billed at an hourly rate of $200-$500, or more, depending on the reputation and experience of the firm and lawyer. Before hiring an immigration lawyer, ask what their plan for your case is and what expected costs may be. Many immigration lawyers work from retainers, and request a set amount of money upfront from which to work. For example, a lawyer who charges $300 per hour may estimate $4,000 for a standard family-based immigration case, the common process in which a U.S. citizen petitions for permanent residency for their spouse, fiancee or family members.
