After my husband was found guilty I immediately started looking for an Appellate Attorney. I interviewed several great Appellate Attorneys in the state when another lawyer recommended Mr. Thomas Donnelly. I met with Mr. Donnelly right away and was very pleased. Mr. Donnelly was straight forward and honest and I found him very refreshing. I could tell that Mr. Donnelly loved his work and he liked challenges. I did not know at the time all the challenges that he would have to face when it came to my husband’s case. Mr. Donnelly proved to be true fighter; winning, not once, but twice at the Court of Appeals in Maryland for my husband. Mr. Donnelly uncovered issues that had never been explored and exposed other issues with great support and case law. Mr. Donnelly has always displayed the highest level of integrity, honesty, and work ethic. Mr. Donnelly works hard and fights hard for his clients. Mr. Donnelly has always been there to answer our questions and address any concerns we may have. Mr. Donnelly has never wasted our time and money and I knew regardless of the outcome he would work harder for us than anyone. Thanks to Mr. Donnelly’s hard work and diligence my husband will be home this coming year! I cannot begin to express the gratitude or respect I have for Mr. Donnelly and I would urge anyone to consider hiring Mr. Donnelly to represent them.

Jan I. Berlage, Attorney at Law
Mr. Berlage helped me out of a bad situation. I moved and the movers scratched a valuable piece of furniture- my dining room table that was an antique. I contacted the movers who told me they were licensed and insured- I found them through Craigslist. Bad move. The owner proceeded to tell me he had gone out of business ( in one week?) and was filing bankruptcy. I had a friend call to inquire about moving services though the next day and suddenly he was back in business. I called two attorneys who explained to me that it would cost more (about 700-1,000 dollars in legal fees) to recover damages than it would to fix the table (the repair was about 600 dollars to refinish the top). Berlage was the third attorney I called and he had sympathy for my situation. He promised to help me out for a very small flat fee because he felt strongly that I had been ripped off. Well, he had my moving expenses reimbursed from the company within a week and I had the table fixed. He cut his fee to help me out and he was happy with the outcome as I was.

After the mother of my child kidnapped my son and left the State, I was absolutely devastated. I thought I would never see my son again. A close and trusted friend recommended Mr. Donnelly to me so I felt comfortable contacting him. Immediately, I was greeted with a warm voice and transferred directly over to Mr. Donnelly himself. He sat and talked with me over the phone for a while and I could tell he truly cares about each and every one of his clients. Throughout the entire Custody proceedings he frequently called and updated me on my case. He gave me advice and steered me in the right direction whenever I was in need. Being a Father in Maryland I never thought in a million years I would get custody of my son over his mother. Tom fought for me to the end which ultimately resulted in me getting full legal and physical custody of my now 3 year old son. I could never be any happier. I am truly grateful I had such a devoted and tough attorney on my side. Thank you Tom!

I spent the last twenty years thinking I was doing pretty well for myself. Almost all of my friends had debt but no one talked about it. I knew that everyone else had a mortgage and student loans to pay. When I finally asked my friend how to get the creditors off his back, he had no idea what I was talking about. It turns out, I wasn’t as financially sound as I thought. My friends weren’t getting the same calls from creditors as I was. I panicked and called Richard J. Hackerman. After my free consultation, he explained that Chapter 13 would allow me to get my life back up and running and get the creditors to stop calling me. I owe him so much more than the invoice states. He gave me the knowledge I needed to get back on track.

Thinking about the need to file for bankruptcy is never easy. There is so much anxiety to bear with, especially if you do not have anyone from the law firm representing you. Fortunately, throughout this difficult time, I was able to find Richard Hackerman who is very compassionate and knowledgeable. He understood my needs and always kept me in the loop with the whole process. He was really professional and would always notify me of all critical events. He was involved in every decision that I made and would discuss the options that I can go for thoroughly. I couldn’t begin to express how comforting it is to know that an experienced attorney was working on my case. I couldn’t have done it without him!

Unfortunately I have been through the procedure of bankruptcy before with another firm, and it was just awful. On the other hand, my experience with Richard Hackerman was top notch. He offered me a thorough consultation, and he was a pleasure to work with. He very much eased my mind and helped me think rationally and clearly on every decision I had to make. This made me act effectively towards the best possible outcome. Whenever I needed him, he would always become available and his services are reasonably priced. What I appreciated most is that I felt like he was doing this because he cares and not just for the paycheck. Do not hesitate to call him if you are having similar problems.

I have always struggled with my finances. I never learned how to properly set up a smart financial plan, and it constantly landed me in a bad place. I have always relied on the help of others to dig me out until one day, the hole I had dug was too deep. I realized that I needed some professional help but refused to consider bankruptcy. I went to Richard Hackerman and after our initial consultation I realized that I could get out of my financial trouble without declaring bankruptcy. He helped me to set up goals for myself and take financial responsibility for my life. Consulting Richard Hackerman was the best financial decision I have ever made for myself and my family.

I just wanted to take the time to thank Atty. Hackerman for his help during our bankruptcy process. We appreciate his patience and kindness during this difficult time and we are hoping we will have closure on all fronts really soon. Since we were so busy trying to deal with other things, it was tough trying to meet him each time until the actual court date. But he was amazing with us and would take our long phone calls and emails. We are grateful that he would respond as soon as he could and give us full details on the process. I was very nervous during the hearing, but he really made an effort to assure us great results. And he certainly delivered. Great work!

Right after I graduated college, I got an amazing job at a law firm in downtown Baltimore that dealt with tax law. There is nothing better than being able to pay off student loans and have some extra money to play with. I wasn’t smart about it and was spending my money way too quickly. My paycheck went to my head and I quickly got into trouble. I purchased an apartment I couldn’t afford along with my student loans, and I was in over my head. I contacted Richard J. Hackerman and as a fellow lawyer he worked with the utmost discretion. I was able to quickly turn my finances around and get my life in check. I owe a good part of my life to his advice!

Road accidents can really happen anytime. Although incidences may be minimized with regular car maintenance and generally being a careful driver, you may encounter certain circumstances that are unavoidable, or get yourself involved in a crash because of another driver’s carelessness. Two years ago, I got involved in an accident where I sustained injuries such as a fractured rib. It was Mr. Hackerman who really helped me through the case. He is really very knowledgeable and skillful with what he does. In the end, I won the case, and I owe everything to him. If you ever need an auto accident attorney, I would recommend him highly.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
