Jace Cook is a professional in every aspect of the word. He loves what he does and it shows in his willingness to push for the best possible outcome for his clients, leaving no stone unturned. I was lucky enough to have Mr. Cook co-represent me in a recent case and saw firsthand what he is capable of from a legal standpoint. Jace made my problems seem like his very own and counseled very thoughtfully and carefully through the entire process.I could not be more pleased with the outcome of the case, all things considered, and this was due in large to the tireless efforts put forth by Jace. His knowledge of the law and ability to relate with his clients on a personal level make Jace an excellent attorney and someone you want in your corner in times of legal hardships. I highly recommend Mr. Cook to anyone in need of legal consultation or representation with the utmost confidence.

If you are in need of legal help or have been in an accident that was not your fault, I highly recommend Todd Peterson. He was trustworthy and kept us in the loop every step of the way. He was also experienced with these type of cases and working with insurance companies, and knew what things we should be compensated for and were reasonable. We were very satisfied with the results and appreciated the different options he presented along the way. Todd and his firm were great to work with!

Lincoln has been my family law attorney for many years and I consider him to be a friend. He helped me through a very difficult and prolonged divorce and to obtain custody of my daughter. Lincoln has always been very supportive and gone the extra mile to ensure that I received the best outcome in court. A good example of this is when he filed an appeal with the Washington State Court of Appeals regarding an important ruling that initially did not go my way --- and won. This would not have been possible without Lincoln's expertise and persistence. Lincoln's ethics are of the highest caliber, and I always trusted him to suggest the most effective and ethical legal strategies while keeping the best interests of my daughter and me in mind.

    About

    Steve Thayer has practiced law with an emphasis in criminal defense in Vancouver, WA since 1977. He is a Founding Member and former Vice President of the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He was honored in 2015 by that organization as a recipient of The President's Award for excellent service to his clients in 2014. He has been A-V Rated by the Martindale-Hubbell peer review process for over 15 years, and has appeared in the Bar Register of Pre-Eminent Lawyers for many years. He has also been honored by his peers as a Super Lawyer many times in the survey of Washington attorneys conducted by the Washington Law & Politics magazine. Mr. Thayer has tried and won virtually every kind of criminal case, primarily servicing Southwest Washington and the Federal Courts in the Western District of Washington. He has also specially appeared and defended cases in California, Idaho, and Oregon. Notable results achieved in 2014 include, for example, the outright dismissal of a second degree murder charge (self-defense) in the Clark County Superior Court, outright dismissal of an attempted first degree murder charge (statute of limitations) in the Clark County Superior Court, outright dismissal of a first degree armed robbery case (misidentification) in the Clark County Superior Court, and a not guilty verdict for a police officer charged with domestic assault (self-defense) in the Clark County District Court. * Assault & Homicide Cases Mr. Thayer has tried and won a variety of high profile assault, vehicular homicide, and murder cases. He is a well-known advocate for the right to bear arms and the right to self-defense. * Sex Crimes Perhaps more innocent men are accused and charged with sexual assault, rape, and molestation than any other felony offense. Mr. Thayer believes nothing is more important than the acquittal of an innocent man, and his reputation for winning these cases is unsurpassed. He has obtained not guilty verdicts and dismissals for many clients charged with child molestation, rape of a child, date rape, indecent liberties, etc. Over the years, he has successfully defended the President of the Vancouver School Board, the son of the Mayor of Vancouver, police officers, teachers, coaches, and many other high profile clients. Publicity from many of those cases may be viewed on our website (see Business section) * Child Pornography Charges Mr. Thayer has saved many men from prison sentences in both the state and federal courts. He recently he obtained dismissal of child pornography charges brought against a 61 year-old lawyer in the Clark County Superior Court. Although many lawyers handle these cases, there simply is no substitute for experience. * Domestic Violence/Domestic Assault Cases Many clients are falsely accused by spouses or relatives, and many of the cases involve mutual combat between the parties where self-defense comes into play. The State has the burden of proving that the accused was not lawfully acting in self-defense as a result of a case Mr. Thayer won in the Washington Supreme Court in 1982. State v. Acosta, 101 Wn.2d 612, 683 P.2d 1069 (1984). He has achieved successful outcomes for many clients recently, including a not guilty jury verdict for a police officer who was charged with domestic violence assault in November of 2014. * DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving Cases The potential consequences of a DUI conviction can be devastating, including the loss of license, jail time, fines, and increased insurance premium. Mr. Thayer brings over 35 years of expertise and experience to the defense of these cases and has won dozens of DUI trials.

    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 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.

    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

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
