My review is a bit lengthy, however please read it, I feel this Law Firm deserves my gratification and you deserve to hear from a pleased client. I was extremely happy with the outcome of my divorce case. I did not have to go to court and was able to settle things in mediation. I had the opportunity to meet the Office Manager/ Paralegal/ on her way to be a Legal Technician (impressive) Christine. She did my intake. Christine was so understanding and comforting. I knew this was a good start and a good sign. Then I spoke with Associate Attorney Brian Neuharth. He really didn't have to take time out of his schedule to talk to me about my case before Managing Attorney Mike Moceri was ready to meet with me, yet he did. My divorce case would seem to be an easy one, but there were twists and turns that made it unusually a bit more difficult than it needed to be. I wanted and needed the help. Mike did not have to take my case, but he did even though we both discussed that he would be in trial the day of my mediation, and one of his associate attorneys would accompany me in mediation. However, he would go to trial with me if it indeed had to go to trial. There were only 3 weeks before mediation and the Law Firm still took my case. Brian Holden was the Associate Attorney scheduled to be with me during mediation. Having him there was a huge relief and worth every penny. I truly feel my outcome would not have been as successful as it was without the support and assistance of Brian in addition to the backing of the Law Firm. Every single staff member that I encountered showed more concern about my case than expected. I know they have many clients other than me, but I sure feel like they went above and beyond to assured me they would do their best, yet also very forthcoming of worst-case scenarios based on their experience and how the law interprets a case like mine. My comfort and right away huge reduction of stress was greatly put at ease. In my mind, knowing that the worst-case scenario from them, I felt, would be better than any worst-case scenario I could have possibly gotten for myself. Bonus, I got exactly what I wanted and the help that I needed to make that possible. The outcome was better than I could have expected. If you take the time and go to their website and see the BIOS about the many memberships, accreditations and awards that they have, it shows, and I see why they received all these awards. Rightfully so! I assure you I knew nothing about this Law Firm, aside from what their website said before I hired them; my review is genuine. I wanted to share my experience, so others don’t miss the opportunity to work with this Law Firm. Go meet them in person, you will see! Will I hire them again if I need an attorney for any of the other services they provide? Most definitely yes!

John assisted me with reviewing a prenuptial agreement that my fiance and I are signing before we get married. John had a good knowledge of family/divorce law and his charges were reasonable. I was pleased with the outcome and would recommend John to anyone that needs a great family law attorney. I will use him in the future if needed!

When my wife and I were considering filing for bankruptcy we met with Steven Palmer at Curtis Casteel and Palmer law firm, he was very knowledgeable and understanding of our situation, he didn’t make us feel bad about our debt or about having to file for bankruptcy which made us feel a lot better about having to make this tough decision and file chapter 7. He also didn’t pressure us at all on filing and retaining him as our attorney, he just laid out our situation we were in and how filing could help us on rebuilding and answered all of our questions we had. Once we retained him as our attorney to file for bankruptcy working with him was probably one of the easiest things I’ve ever done, he responds back to emails and phone calls very promptly even on the weekends via email. He handles creditors still calling you immediately and makes you aware right away of what he said to them and what to look for going forward with that credit on if they continue to call or mail demands. He works very hard for you to make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible and it definitely did for my wife and I. He even offered to help us with additional things such as reviewing loan offers from banks for when we purchased our first car after the bankruptcy at no charge, which was greatly appreciated and just shows how dedicated he is to making sure that your headed in a good direction after discharge. I would definitely recommend him and his law firm to anyone that is filing or even slightly considering filing for bankruptcy to at least contact him and see what he can do for you and I will be sending anyone I know that’s in the same situation or other types of law they handle to him as well. Thanks again for all the help Steve!!!!

Mr. Jackman was hired for a complicated assault case and from the first phone call was extremely polite and filled with heartfelt compassion. Should I ever need an attorney again, I would hire him in a heartbeat, everyone should at least talk to him. Thank you so much Mr. Jackman!

I had fired my first attorney, it was a injury "mill" They did nothing for 2 weeks. Ann got right to work and with in days she had settled on the personal property. Great hard working, thoughtful, intelligent work, with still having empathy for the challenges and emotional needs at a crisis time for you in life, when you are not able to make decisions.

Fortunately my case was dismissed and did not go to court.but before I knew that I approached Kimberly and hired her to defend my case.as I said my case never made it to court and I'm sure if it ever did Kimberly would have been the right lawyer to defend it.i met her once only and she was very friendly comforting and caring but yet very professional.so I recommend her to anyone out there looking for a good lawyer!

I hired Ms Bienstock on behalf of my son and grandson. Help with unfair child support decrees and a parenting plan was needed, perhaps seeking primary custody of the then two year old. In December, 2012 our boy Elias was removed from his mother's half time care due to drug use, neglect and I believe there was physical and emotional abuse. He was in the dependency of the state, placed with me- his paternal grandmother- while things were sorted out. If we had not had help from this attorney, we probably would have lost him to the state. Kristin knows her stuff. It was a complete comfort knowing she knows who to talk to and what is most important at any time. She helped us through the emotional roller coaster. We are not used to being treated as the criminals since we are good citizens and good parents. It appeared to us that many things the state was doing were not in the best interest of Elias. He needed most of all to be in the care of his beloved Dad. Kristen made this happen. She guided us legally and personally. We are almost there! The 5 months it has taken seems like 5 eternities to us. But it almost always takes one to one and a half years. We would not be here without Kristen. Thank you, Kristen. I have no complaints. I highly recommend her for family law. She is kind, patient and very smart. So glad we have had her at our side.

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
