When you find yourself in need of an attorney it can already be a very scary time. Centurion Law made me feel at ease with the whole process from start to finish and assured me everything would be okay by walking me through the entire thing from start to finish. Mr. Sharif was kind, courteous, professional and kept everything right on budget. I received top notch service without feeling like I was taken advantage of. I highly recommend Centurion Law for any of your legal needs.

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!

Jim is an honest and hard working lawyer. He handled my case always having my best interest in mind. He was always timely and easy to contact. There was one thing, if there was something he did not know, he always did the research to ensure he was representing you knowing the law and to your advantage. Hopefully I will not need an attorney in the future. But if I do, he will be my first call.

    She is an exceptional attorney who will go above and beyond for you. I can't sing her praises loudly enough. She put my mind at ease by doing the foot work regarding my case-making sure we were well prepared and had everything in order to present before the judge. She made herself available at all times and always returned phone calls in a timely manner. I can't speak highly enough of her work ethic, professionalism, attention to detail and genuine care and concern for her clients.

    About

    I am a licensed Pennsylvanian attorney practicing in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I concentrate my practice in the areas of probate, estate planning, and elder law. My approach to practicing law is based on a very simple philosophy: every person is important. I believe that practicing law is about more than statutes and rules. Practicing law is about respect. Even if you are not my client, I believe that all people add to society and deserve respect; therefore, I believe that you are important. I earned my law degree from Baylor University School of Law in Waco, Texas in 2006. That same year, I was admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania. Since that time, I have been admitted to practice before both the US Tax Court and the US District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. In addition, I am a VA accredited attorney for the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of claims for veterans benefits before the Department of Veterans Affairs. In addition to transactional experience drafting estate planning and elder law documents, I have experience litigating probate and elder law issues in Orphans' Court. More information on my practice and experience is available at my website. Additionally, I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. I have heard it said that finding the right attorney makes all the difference. I firmly believe that I have the perception, understanding, and experience to help you with your legal needs. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.

    About

    We are a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania employment law firm, litigating discrimination and wrongful termination/discharge in the workplace. Our firm specializes in wrongful termination law and has expertise in the nuances of wrongful termination/discharge in Pennsylvania and exceptions to the "at-will" employment doctrine in the state. Bushnell Law Firm, P.C. takes on most cases on a contingency basis, so there are no out-of-pocket costs, unless there is money recovered in the lawsuit. Our firm focuses on trying and winning cases, and not simply filing suits in the hope of obtaining settlements, because the money received by the client will be greater if the opposing party knows that you are willing to go to trial, if necessary, to obtain fair compensation for the injuries sustained. As a result, we take fewer cases, but litigate those cases very aggressively. We look for the merit of the case, and then are extremely thorough in turning over every stone to find out what happened to the client at work that caused the termination or other adverse action. This is essential in employment cases, because, as opposed to other type of cases, the evidence in employment cases is often circumstantial, and thus, there is more opportunity for the employer to lie since these cases are mostly "he-said-she-said" cases, and not cases with tangible evidence, such as accident cases. Another complication in employment cases is there is often no physical manifestation of injury, so unlike an accident case, where there is often overt physical damage that can be seen by the jury, the jury is not likely to see a physical manifestation of damage; the client will look healthy and able to work. Under those circumstances, it is vital for the attorney to be able to communicate powerfully to the jury what the client has suffered, and this is an expertise that our firm possesses. Our firm works predominantly on employment cases, so we have the specialized expertise in these types of cases. Finally, our firm also negotiates severance packages with employers, drafts employment agreements, and works on the client's behalf to resolve employment matters outside of litigation, if at all possible. We are a cutting-edge employment law firm and provide optimal customer service to our clientele.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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

    How much does it cost to have a living will?

    Either a family attorney or an estate, or wills, attorney can help you prepare a living will, either as part of your general estate planning or as an individual document. The cost typically ranges from $250 to $500, depending on your attorney’s fees; some charge by the hour, while others have a flat rate for writing a living will. Some states require living wills to be notarized, which adds an average of $5 to $15. In a living will — also called an advanced healthcare directive — you specify whether you want to be kept on life support if you become terminally ill or lapse into a persistent vegetative state. You can also answer other important questions in a living will like your preferences for tube feeding, artificial hydration and pain medication in situations when you cannot communicate your wishes on your own.

    How do you find a good lawyer for wills?

    Estate planning is an important part of financial planning, so it’s important to find the right attorney to prepare your will. Although most family attorneys can put together a basic will, you may want one who specializes in wills and estate planning, especially if you have a lot of assets or a dependent to take care of. You may need an attorney who has expertise in planning and executing trusts and a background in taxes. Ask how the attorney charges; some charge by the hour, others have a set fee for writing wills, and some charge a percentage of the total value of the estate. Make a list of several potential wills attorneys to interview. Make sure you make a strong personal connection with your attorney — you need to be comfortable telling him or her personal, confidential information about your life, and you need to feel that the attorney is committed to solving any problems that may arise while writing your will. Also find out how long the attorney has practiced estate law and whether he or she has handled wills similar to yours.

    How much should an estate plan cost?

    The cost of an estate plan depends largely on the number of parts it includes and the complexity of the documents. The most basic estate plan is simply a will, but it may also include designating power of attorney or a health care proxy to another person, writing a living will, or making a HIPAA authorization. The average national cost to make an estate plan ranges from $350 to $900, but can cost much more in complicated situations. For example, an estate attorney may charge only $900 to prepare a basic will providing outright distribution — meaning that property and assets are distributed upon death. Writing a more complicated will and holding assets in trusts can cost $3,000, or more. The process of creating an estate plan generally takes two to four weeks, starting with the initial consultation with the wills attorney to identify areas of concern in order to design an estate plan that fits your goals and budget. Once an estate plan is written, the attorney meets with the clients, a notary, and two neutral witnesses to review and sign the plan and associated documents.
