I spoke with Ms. Syed's parallalegal. He was very helpful and honest with my case. He shed new light and relevant information on my case that the previous attorney I consulted with did not share with me;which I regrettably paid for. I would recommend this law firm for any legal matters.

A couple of years ago, I decided to file the I-130 for my mother so we can be reunited in the U.S. The application process seemed easy and straight forward so I decided to proceed without attorney assistance. My mum and I filled and submitted all the necessary forms and paid the required fees. Few months later, her application got pre-approved and her case was then transferred to the US consulate in Nigeria for further processing/visa issuance. Unfortunately, on her interview day, her visa wasn’t issued due to some legal issues that were unknown to us at the time. We didn’t know what to do or the next steps to take. My family was saddened and disappointed by the news. Her application was on stand still for about a year. We exhausted all options during that period but to no avail. It even got to a point I began to feel like her application was as good as dead. In March 2017, a close friend suggested I reached out to Ral Obioha for legal advice. At first, I was hesitant and doubtful. My mother's application at that point seemed so complicated and I just didn’t think anyone would be able to help. Reluctantly, I decided to give her a call and we spoke for about 45mins. She sounded positive, confident, and assured me that she could turn things around despite the seeming complications. After the called ended, I was really impressed by the way she went to work right away making phone calls, setting up meetings, and putting together legal documents to support my mother's case, etc. She showed both a sense of ownership and dedication. The application progressed at a good a pace and she was always updating me on a daily basis on progress and next steps. In a nut shell, she treated my case as someone would have done for their own parent. Two weeks into handling the case, Ral Obioha was able to put together all legal documents supporting my mother case. We submitted them to the US consulate in Nigeria via mail. Seven days later, my mother's visa was eventually approved thanks to the excellent work Ral Obioha put in. She took on a complicated case that was dead in the water and then brought it back to life. Anyone seeking a lawyer who will be dedicated to your case and has an excellent knowledge of US immigration process should hire Ral Obioha. She definitely comes with my strong recommendations. I am glad I was introduced to her.

Part 1 of my review. So after much research on finding the right divorce attorney, I decided to go with Mr. Hanten and his associates. The reason this is part (1) one of my review is due to my case is still on-going and I will write my final review once all is said and done. My experience with Mr. Hanten and his Wonderful Legal Assistant thus far has been amazing!! Prompt responses, professional advice and more importantly, Mr. Hanten and his firm gives me the impression that they actually care!! I will follow up with this review once my case is settled and complete.

I worked with Mr Rivas to do an Adjustment of Status (AOS) for my wife. We had a number of tricky angles in our situation that other attorney's gave mixed answers to. After consulting with him, we finally had a clear game plan to follow after lots of confusion! His many years of experience in this field were reflected in the advice he provided throughout all stages of our immigration process (which is quite long.. 9-12 months or more) I think its important to also point out that one of the deciding factors in our decision to work with Mr Rivas was that in the very beginning, while we were attorney shopping, he was one of the only attorneys to respond to our questions with actual useful answers. Other attorneys held back info or tried to sell me on ideas that seemed to benefit them more than me. We truly do appreciate all the help Mr Rivas provided. The end of the story is that our green card is now in the mail!

I hired him to take over a custody case after firing an attorney. His rates are much less than other attorneys. He is working on an enforcement that was previously filed. He understands trying to get my custody case resolved the least costly way possible.

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.
