Jessica was the second attorney I hired. She has proven to be for my best interest on many accounts. She contacts me mostly via text (like everyone else 2018) where my previous attorney only sent letters of “payment due” without lifting a finger. She not only communicates efficiently, but thoroughly. She follows up with deadlines, does what she says she’s going to do, and she’s just down right genuine. She works hard to make sure nothing is overlooked and welcomes the advice and perceptions of both myself and my peers to refine her stance in representing me. Hands down I will always recommend Jessica Bernstein- she puts the best interest of her clients first and that’s something not many people do these days.

My husband and I visited another attorney regarding bankruptcy and walked out overwhelmed and unsure of what path to take. After deciding that we needed to revisit the idea of bankruptcy, we found the Law Offices of Susan Taylor. As soon as we walked in, we knew that we had found our attorney. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and to the point. We walked out of our consultation confident that we were on the right path. Once we made the decision to go ahead with the process, both Susan and her para Rebecca were Amazing! They walked us through each step, were available to answer questions, and assisted us in every way during what could have been a very difficult time in our lives. I would Highly recommend the Law Office of Susan Taylor to anyone who needs these services. They will not be disappointed.

I hired Ryan for a felony DWI. While we were trying to resolve my 3rd DWI I was arrested for violating my bond condition for drinking. I was arrested a second time when Travis County revoked my first bond. Ryan helped me get into a program, got me another attorney bond and eventually got me probation for 5 years. The State's offer for the first 6 months was 2 years in prison, based on my prior arrests. They eventually offered 10 years probation and we finally settled on 5 years probation the week prior to trial. Ryan was persistent, tough and helped me get through the most scary time of my life.

This defense attorney was just hired by our family today, he was able to get our daughter out of jail when other attorneys told us it wouldn't probably happen due to her prior records and current charge (First degree felony - aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon). We are very pleased with this attorney thus far! Will leave another comment once the case is completed. Hire this attorney, do not hesitate! -Thacker

I cannot more highly recommend Illinois business and technology attorney Jacki Petrovic. I met Jacki while I was working on a project to bridge gaps in my company’s corporate technology contracts. I was very impressed with Jacki’s wealth of knowledge in business and information technology law. She understands how technology applies in the context of business operations and is excellent at identifying the issues that will matter to the business. Jacki leverages many years of experience in negotiating and assisting clients in achieving favorable contractual relationships and she takes a particular interest in helping clients achieve their goals while protecting their legal interests. Jacki also has an amazing ability to make all of her clients feel that they are a priority and she is great at multitasking to quickly deliver excellent quality work. I have worked with her for many years and anytime I get a call from a potential client needing a lawyer for a business or technology matter, Jacki is at the top of my list of recommendations.

Last year my landlord withheld a large part of my security deposit ($400) in bad faith. The apartment had been maintained properly and cleaned thoroughly prior to my move out date, however, over $200 was deducted from my deposit based on “damages” that consisted of only normal wear and tear. I attempted to fight this issue on my own, but the management company maintained their stance and insisted that the fees deducted from my security deposit were for damages caused during my stay. The “damages” however were not specified, and I was simply billed for normal “cleaning and painting”. I contacted Mr. Libersat to assist me in fighting these charges. He was professional, thorough, understanding, and above all, successful! He took the time to listen to the details of my case and promptly drafted a “demand letter” to the owner of my management company. The letter presented my complaint in a clear, concise, and intelligent manner. It included examples from the Attorney General’s website, and directly disputed the claims against me. Mr. Libersat assured me that if the landlord did not return my security deposit in full within the requested timeframe, he would take further action on my behalf. Thanks to Mr. Libersat, I received my security deposit check in the mail just 5 days after he mailed out the letter. I could not be more appreciative for his expert services and I highly recommend him to others seeking legal advice and counsel.

I personally worked in the Court's Department for TxTag when I got my law license, so I know first hand the process that these cases go through on their way to collections and Court. I am able to handle toll road cases quickly and efficiently, with results that are always pleasing to the client with minimal stress and worry for the 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.

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.
