Thank you for taking so much time for my initial consultation. I had no idea what filing for bankruptcy entails nor did I realize that I have other options. I also want to thank you for answering my questions. I have worked with attorneys in the past who seemed annoyed by me asking questions. I was pleasantly surprised when you contacted me with a follow up call to ask if I had come up with any additional questions. I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family members who may be in need of legal services.

After making several calls to attorneys in the Pittsburgh area without much luck, I was given Mr. Townsend's number by a friend. The primary problem that I encountered was the combination of a hectic work schedule and living out of state limiting my travel options (most attorneys weren't willing to represent me without my traveling to PA). Mr. Townsend handled everything expertly, promptly and courteously and I didn't have to make a single trip to PA to have my legal issue resolved. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.

One of the most honest individuals I've ever met. He scheduled an appointment with me immediately and presented all possible outcomes for my situation. He talked in terms that I could understand and was not afraid to negotiate the best possible solution. He has a tremendous sense of humor and was truly compassionate. And to put the icing on the cake ... he is affordable. The price he quoted is exactly what I paid. I would highly recommend Sean to anyone who needs an attorney.

He responded to my text no matter what time it was during the day or evening hours. He is doing a divorce for me, and his rates are extremely reasonable. I was able to do everything by email and text so far, so I haven't met him in person yet, but he had been really nice. He doesn't seem to have that impersonal demeanor that you get from a lawyer. So far, I would recommend him to my friends. So far, so good!

After finding myself in some trouble with the law and discovered that it was more trouble than I originally thought, Tim Leonard reached out to me and offered his advice. He was very understanding and professional. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to represent me and I am glad that he was there to protect my best interest. I will definitely keep Tim in mind should I ever need representation again in the future.

About

As former public defenders, our attorneys have had extensive experience in the criminal justice system. Our lawyers have also seen the importance of offering high-quality legal representation for a fee that is affordable. Bickerton & Bickerton also has a policy of lawyer education that keeps its attorneys up to date on the developments in criminal law.

About

I spend most of my time with clients educating them about the criminal system and the likely potential outcomes that my experience reveals. Clients, even those who been through the system multiple times DO NOT understand what may happen. Uncertainty fosters fear; my job is to shine a bright light on the process so the client can intelligently decide how he/she wishes me to pursue their defense. My clients are my boss--not the other way around. For me to perform my education function there has to be free communication between my client and me. My clients have my cellphone so that they have direct access to me when they feel the need. Any criminal defendant who does not know what is going on with their case is a poorly represented client.

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.
