Micheal was great during our consultation. He gave me excellent advise to guide me through a extremely stressful custody issue. He took time out to call and talk to me. Most attorneys won't do that. He has even taken time out to check on me. Thanks Michael

Thank you Kavitha for all your help! You were extremely helpful in a time of great stress for me during my divorce. I knew I was in good hands when you kept reassuring me that everything was going to be fine and followed through with it. I recommend Kavitha for divorce cases. She fights for your rights and handles everything with such professionalism. I have hired other attorneys that do not care what you think and don't listen, but Kavitha listened and stood there by my side and helped me through this rough time of my life. Thank you again for all your help!

Christie was very assuring and helpful in taking first steps to decide whether I needed or did not need an attorney. That is, she only had my best interests in mind. She provided detailed answers to all my questions and I appreciate her very much. My spouses attorney suggested I did not need an attorney but I do not necessarily agree with that and Christie was able to provide me the risk analysis information regarding how to make that decision. My final decision is still up in the air but if I choose to be represented, even for just advice (not for court related "war of the roses" which EVERYONE wants to avoid), there is no question, no doubt, that I would be in the best hands with Christie. I recommend her 100%. Let me also add that her rates are very affordable, which is very important in the midst of an impending divorce where already there will be financial challenges. Thanks Christie!

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!!!

Ross Tew is a terrific estate planning attorney with reasonable rates! He handled our complete Trust, Wills, Powers of Attorney, and more in a professional, timely manner. He took the time to come to our house and fit into our busy schedule and even came to our location for signing papers. He answered all our questions in a way we could understand legal issues and gave us confidence in everything he did. He is not always easy to reach, because he values his family time, but came through for us, even during the holidays.

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.

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.

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.
