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.

Where can i start!? Jeremiah has not only helped me prove my case once, nor twice or three times, but four cases over the past few years, all dismissed! Sounds bad on my part im sure but when you got a lawyer who actually knows the law is dedicated and involved in the case the truth can actually be proven! The way i see it, after bond fees and all other hardship that comes with it, its "guilty to proven innocent"! Which proving your innocents seems to be such a mission and never possible, specially if you have any priors! Well, I am living proof that even a guy with a bad backround can still be proven innocent 4 times in three differant cases. Jeremiah stands by the law and what it is intedned for... The truth! I may be going a little over board but im really not! Thank you Jeremiah! You bring the Law back to Lawyer! You can see my dismisals if you google my name! This firm is the real deal!

I found Jacki to be a diligent, hardworking and highly competent attorney who was also very personable and a pleasure to work with. She provided very thoughtful legal review and often identified legal issues that other lawyers missed, which could have been costly to the business. I enjoyed discussing technology matters with Jacki. She was always interested in learning more about the business side of technology and was very happy to help me better understand why certain legal issues, like warranties, indemnities and licensing rights, matter more than others. She had a way of making complicated legal concepts simple. I really appreciated her teaching style because, the longer that she and I worked together, the better I became at negotiating deals. It was clear to me that Jacki has a passion for both technology and the practice of law. Jacki earned my respect with her strong work ethic and her commitment to excellence. She is trustworthy and dependable and did a great job for me during my tenure at the company. I can give Jacki my highest recommendation.

I am so appreciative of the difficult work Larry put into my case he’s honest and very trustworthy. Thank you, for your time and your compassion for everything I went through. Larry fought for my case, and finally I able to get closure on my custody battle, I am more then please with the outcome. He’s knowledgeable and brilliant he took the weight off my shoulders. He was great about keeping me informed with every aspect of the case, and if needed his paralegal was able to walk me through everything that came up. Larry is defiantly dedicated to his job and does an outstanding job at it. I can honestly say he is the best attorney and I highly recommend him.

My family - my ex-husband, three children, and myself - moved here from the Northeast a couple years ago. After 15 years and raising our family far from here, we moved to Texas to be closer to my ex-husband's family. He left only months later and began a new family immediately. Being alone and having started a job within only days of him leaving was difficult, of course. I needed help and because my children were at that point considered residents of Texas, I couldn't legally leave with them. I was lost only temporarily. I spoke with a few people, and looked at varying options as far as legal representation. The day I met Lori Watson, was the day everything turned around. All of the difficulty seemed to have lessened. I knew my children and I would be fine and we were, and we are. I got everything in my proceedings that Lori told me I would. She communicated consistently, and though she had many other cases, I knew when I had a question, or needed advice, she was not far. She returned every call, every email, and with great speed. The sense of independence and control that I was hoping to feel and to take with me through such a horrible ordeal, Lori helped me to maintain, and it took me and my children through it, almost completely unscathed. My divorce was finalized just the beginning of this year, and for Mother's Day, my oldest daughter made me a card that told me not just that she and her siblings love me, but that I am the strongest person they know and they will grow to be strong because of me. I know my own level of strength and independence, but when your world suddenly seems to start crumbling, fear and insecurity are easily overwhelming. Lori helped me to get through that time, and to maintain what prompted those words from my daughter. I can't thank Lori enough. - Meredith

Jo is one in a million. Made me feel very comfortable and gave me a very fair price. There is not very many attorneys like her in the world. She was extremely prompt in answering all my texts and phone calls. On time, straight to the point and is just an all around awesome attorney. She is the only attorney I will call in the event I have another case. I would highly recommend her services.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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 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.
