Verified review

I was amazed by the Services I recieved when I retained Mr. Throop. his staff was polite and knowledgable. He answered my worried calls about my case promptly and on time always making time to answer my question. When we went to court we had a hard case it could have gone very badly for me and in turn for my family. Mr. Throop argued the case like no lawyer this side of a law and order sitcom I have ever seen. The outcome shocked me aswell as the commonwealth attorney and I am very happy with the services I recieve. Thank you Mr. Throop for fighting so hard for me! I recoomended him to all my friends for future work as well as hope to retain him on all my future legal needs. I very much recommend this firm, I was surprised at his brutal honest and not trying to lie just to take my money like most lawyers. If your thinking of using this firm rest assured your investment is properly spent on great legal services.

Tara is an exceptional attorney. I have known Tara for several years and am so grateful for her compassion and her professionalism as she counseled me through a difficult custody matter. Her legal knowledge was just as impressive as her ability to make me laugh during such a trying time.

Jacob and the team at Tingen and Williams are attentive, responsive and experts in their field. We love them. They listened to what we needed in our contracts and delivered the work ahead of schedule, and provided us with the protection we greatly needed. I really appreciate how they take the time to explain the legal reasoning behind the terms and structure of the work they provide. Most firms do not show that level of interest in ensuring their sure clients understand what is actually going on. Tingen and Williams are our attorneys for the long-term, we are grateful for their expertise and professionalism. It is nice to know you have a good legal team behind you in this day and age, we take great comfort in that. We recommend them highly to any individual or group looking for the services and expertise they can provide.

Mr. Zebrak handled my divorce & custody case and did an awesome job!! Couldn't ask for a better lawyer!! He has gone above & beyond to win my custody case & kept me from going to court against my ex with the divorce.. It was a complete headache & stressful to deal with until I hired Mr. Zebrak and then I didn't have any worries.. He was on my side 100% & dealt with everything professionally.. I would definitely acquire his services in the future if need be.. I would highly recommend him and have referred my friends/co-workers to him and they have acquired his services also and have been very happy with their outcomes.. Thanks for your hard work & help with my cases!!!

    So happy with Attorney Hazelwoods professional and quality of care he shows a potential client. My father passed last Thursday and I was charged with researching whether or not we needed to probate his estate. Attorney Hazelwood quickly responded and even took the time out to call my mom on a Saturday afternoon. She was very pleased with the free telephone consultation he gave her and his legal recommendation. Thank you so much for being there for my family in our time of need

    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.
