I was searching for a lawyer who have experience with someone that could help a woman like myself, whom has always been under the control of her husband for over 32 years. I have a special needs child with autism that needs full time care. My soon to be ex-husband never included me in any of the decision making or given me knowledge of his salary or what was in all unknown accounts... I was utterly & completely illiterate in money. I was not allowed to open or pay the bills or even ask about them. I was never allowed to balance the check book or once stepped into our bank for over 30 years. Because I trusted him to take care of things that he insisted to take care of.... I met him at age 14 so I was very naive about money and pretty much most things. When his OCD issues got unbearable to live with him any longer & I could not breathe...and the fact we already did marriage counseling years earlier and nothing ever changed...I wanted a divorce. I contacted several lawyers but Mr. Rubin was the ONLY one who responded to me & took the time needed to answer all my questions immediately. He did NOT ask for one dime to do that for me as all the other ones did. I found Mr. Rubin to be very sincere & genuine and cared....NOT just someone wanting money before they could even answer one question of mine which felt very incompassionate to me, with the despair I was in at the time. I read many positive reviews online from women such as myself who were SO grateful to him, fighting for them that it just felt right for me to choose him. I NEEDED someone to fight for ME! I never had control over anything in my marriage so I was very scared over what the outcome would be or if I could care for my daughter as she deserved. Mr. Rubin eased all my worries & then some! I found Mr. Rubin pretty intense initially because of all the questions asked from me..and being so overwhelmed. I had been with my soon to be ex for 32 years so was an emotional mess when I filed for divorce. BUT....by him asking all that needed to be asked he was able to gather EVERYTHING he NEEDED to help fight for me!! Mr. Rubin taught me how to KEEP the facts so that he could fight for me more effectively.. Instead of me being overly emotional & falling apart ever few seconds like many women do. I finally GOT why I needed to stick to the facts...they spoke volumes and made it possible to get so much more info out! Mr. Rubin assured me constantly that he would take GOOD care of me and NOT to worry when I send him many long late night rants via email throughout this process. He clarified all the things that was making me anxious and I always ended up feeling better. I never had to second guess him forgetting one single fact about my case. His memory is perfect!! In court he was freaking BRILLIANT, SHARP & right ON top of my case to the end! All the facts he had already memorized without skipping a beat! Very reassuring & calming. Nothing calms a person more than having someone who really cares & FIGHTS for you without hesitation. Mr. Rubin remained on top of the ALL the facts so all antics from husband's lawyer were shot down in flames, It was amazing to watch.... He was a Rock Star!! They never were able to rebound whatsoever because it was mute! Karma. In getting the temporary orders signed Mr. Rubin was able to get me the maximum child support & alimony while my daughter & I get to remain in our home. My soon to be Ex-husband will still pay for many of my child's needs and I will not be tied to him any more. Mr. Rubin is a dedicated lawyer and is making sure I receive exactly what I deserve so that I can take GOOD care of my autistic daughter which is my number ONE priority! Mr. Rubin saw right through what my husband's lawyer was "trying" to do to me and he did NOT allow it whatsoever. NIPPED IT ASAP!! Just brilliant! My husband wanted me to believe we were living paycheck to paycheck....I never questioned him. I found out in discovery he made at least 3X more than I thought and yet I lived like a pauper our whole marriage. He also tried to state earnings that were much less but my lawyer had evidence proven otherwise! There were many mistakes my husband had to admit to that my lawyer called him out on! My soon to be EX should be ashamed for what he attempted to do to me. If I had not had Mr. Rubin fighting for me I would of been blindsided and just signed away whatever they asked while getting way less than I deserve from being so conditioned to keep quiet and never ask for anything. Now I will get to live a full life finally FREE to be ME and not under the control of any one any more! Empowered for the first time in my life thanks to Mr. Rubin! I could not of chosen a better lawyer. I am so grateful of his knowlege in knowing how to fight for someone like me, who always felt SO helpless with no power or strength to stand up for myself. It is still not over but I am very confident that all will work out for me just as he promised. He never let me down! Please do not hesitate in choosing Mr. Rubin to handle your divorce. He knows what he is doing very well and born to fight for women like me who are not able to fight for themselves. Shelley

We hired Mrs. Kavitha Mathew as our lawyer and helped us through my greencard application. I had a J-1 visa before I applied for adjustment of status. Along the way, we had a problem with securing a waiver. We didn't expect that my case was gonna be that hard. We looked for immigration lawyers around and they sounded like my case was hopeless until we met Mrs Mathew through this website. We called her and set an appointment with her. The first time we talked to her, she gave us hope and assurance about the case. That's what we wanted to hear from a lawyer, who will listen and be emphatic to what we were going through. That same day we hired her and that's one of the best decisions we ever made. We started applying for the waiver and she guided us through the step by step process. She was so accessible through the whole process,very professional and knowledgeable about the immigration matters. After waiting for the result of my application, I finally got it. I have now a greencard and no worries at all about my legal stay here in the US. This would not happen without Mrs. Mathew's help. I am writing this review to spread out to the online inquirers that she has done an excellent job with my case and maybe in the future she can help you with yours. She has been an amazing immigration lawyer.

Custody battles are scary but Brenna had made it so much easier! She's kind, helpful, understanding, and really good at what she does! I've had a few lawyers before but she had been outstanding! She had the ability to calm you down and ease fears while also being very clear about what needs to be done. I am so thankful I found her and highly recommend her!!!

Estrada Law Firm PLLC

Jay L.
Verified review

I'll begin my review by stating the following: We won a settlement. Dan Estrada helped me achieve 99% more than their initial pittance offer (I did not make this number up, I actually whipped out a calculator to get the total percentage). With Estrada's help, the uphill battle became much more manageable. He kept me sane, and kept me on track on how to present my case. He also gave me realistic answers - he didn't mince with words and gave me the real facts of what we were facing, what we would have to prepare, best and worst case scenarios. And a definite plus on his part, he also kept me from going way off the OCD charts by keeping me focused on what to prepare and what to leave on the backburner. I spoke with several recommended lawyers from friends, associates and coworkers, and yet none of them were willing to take this case due to the difficulty. Estrada decided to take it on, and considered it a challenge. In the end, after several months of back and forth between us and the insurance lawyers, we came to a settlement with 100% of the policy limits to be paid towards my damages. I would highly recommend Dan Estrada's services to any friends and family who may find themselves in need of legal help. I'm certainly glad I did.

EXCELLENT service and AMAZING / EXPERIENCED attorney. My husband had been FALSELY accused of a sexual assault, a very strange story with many twists, so we had to make sure go go with the BEST attorney out there. Before deciding to go with Jeff I had met with many other local attorneys, of which I felt were reputable. But we also felt that our case was just going to be handed off to a lower, newer , less experienced lawyer that would work and do the case (as in subcontracted out). Jeff gave us the feeling he was able, experienced, and ready to fight for us. I like his military background and ethics. I am sure if I had not seeked out his services the outcome could have been very different . Needless to say we got the ( NOT guilty verdict ) and I am not so sure it would have turned out that way he would have used someone else or even the public defender. Lawyers have their fees and sometimes you have to sacrifice but what's the alternative, maybe being put away for 10-20 years --maybe even life for something you didn't do? I know if I ever need him again I won't hesitate to call or recommend him to anyone. Thank you Jeff for not only being such an amazing attorney but also our counselor when things got scary. We will forever be grateful for you. Thank you Jeff for getting our family back and letting our 3 kids have their dad back! Anyone that reads this please don't put you or your loved one's freedom at risk, it's priceless... Put your trust in Jeff like our family did. He's the best out there.

My experiences with the Law Offices of RJ Harber were positive to say the least. After getting a DWI I turned to their legal counsel and they handled everything wonderfully. I felt like Mr. Harber was on top of everything and I really appreciated that he always kept me in the loop with the progress of my case. He helped me get my licence back much sooner than I could have ever expected. If you slip up like I did, and find yourself needing a DWI lawyer, I highly recommend The Law Offices of RJ Harber!

A friend referred me to Jeff after I shared with her that my case was exceptionally complicated and since then he has been by my side for over two years. During that span, my ex husband has had three attorneys, all with different ideas of legal maneuvers they could use to beat Jeff, yet here I am in an even stronger position than when I first hired him. I have found Jeff to be a master at strategy, excellent at communication and incredibly loyal throughout this entire process. I read recently that most people go through 2-3 attorneys during a typical family law case, but I cannot imagine having an attorney other than Jeff. I’m sure many lawyers can handle simple cases just fine, but if your case has as many moving parts as mine, I cannot stress enough that Jeff is your guy.

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.
