Mitchell Katine was referred by another attorney a dear friend, Kim Ogg, whom we respect . As it turns out we were in violation of deed restrictions, so we hired Mitchell in hopes of overcoming our obstacles. Mitchell was honest and forthright - showed us case law and explained everything so that my wife and I made a very informed decision to cease violation, Mitchell's advice and honesty saved us thousands in legal fees we would have incurred and bought us time to correct our mistake.
Mitchell has been a valuable asset in guiding me and other concerned homeowners in reclaiming our HOA by following the state laws. It wasn't easy but in the end as a result ...WE WON !!! Now our real challenges begin in becoming compliant with the state laws for HOAs. He will help in Updating our bylaws and deed restrictions as we become more educated on restructuring our HOA.WE are all looking forward to our long term relationship with him.
A few days ago I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Katine for a consultation involving employment law. I walked into his office with a list of questions and concerns. Mr. Katine was extremely knowledgeable in answering all my doubts and concerns regarding issues that I considered life changing for me. I admired his genuine heart felt responses to ALL my legal matters. Mr. Katine's full attention and dedication to me at that precision moment was exactly what I wanted in a lawyer; whom would be on MY side :)
Needed a new will and associated documents and found Mr Katine thru Out smart magazine. Very pleased with the entire experience from initial inquiry to final documents. Would certainly recommend him to others.
I consulted with Mr. Katine by phone today, and he was able to quickly analyze my employment situation and put it in perspective, which helped me understand and weigh my options. I appreciate the advice.
Mr. Katine assisted me with an EEOC matter and he was excellent to work with. He kept me informed and returned all calls and emails. He is diligent and caring and does all he can for his clients. I would definitely recommend him. He is trustworthy and that is a trait very hard to find these days. Thank you greatly for your help Mr. Katine!
Mr. Katine worked hard to show that the accusations against myself and my co-defendant were unfounded. Further, when the plaintiff wrote a letter not only violating the court's gag order but also accusing my co-defendant and me of egregious acts, Mr. Katine knew what to do.
The bottom line is that Mr. Katine made it possible to force a settlement that the plaintiff did not want, but had no choice in the matter, since he understood that he could not prove either of us had libeled him. The plaintiff also knew that he was in jeopardy since we could prove libel against him.
Mr. Katine is one of the best lawyer that I have ever worked with. He is honest, up front, deals with the facts, can be trusted and will tell you what he believes is right even if his statements does not agree with the client. His charges are reasonable and he has kept me informed better than most other lawyers. He has concluded one case for me that was in the liable slander area and I expect to retain his services for home owners issues in a subdivision. He is a top notch lawyer
When I had a legal problem that needed experience and expertise with homeowners' associations, I contacted Mitchell. He immediately explained my options. He worked with me to determine the best course of action and strategy to resolve the many conflicts and issues and get the HOA to fix the problems with the least amount of attorney fees. He communicated with me and was always available and responsive to updates, questions, concerns and suggestions for how to preserve our evidence to make the best presentation in court or in mediation. He suggested mediation early on which was an excellent course of action. Ultimately, we did mediate and Mitchell worked hard for a good settlement. Rarely do people leave a mediation smiling, but I did since I came out a winner. I will continue to use Mitchell for the same or similar legal issues occurring from the same condo. I cannot recommend him enough. He is truly an excellent attorney and is well respected by his peers. His reputation for excellence is hard earned and well deserved.
After a nightmarish problem with our HOA that included constant harassment and refusal make required repairs in common areas that affected our home we hired Mitchell. After dealing with a bullying HOA Board for so long it felt very good to have someone like Mitchell Katine stand up for us and say ENOUGH! That's exactly what he did. We filed suit against our HOA and while I cannot disclose the terms of settlement we did settle at Mediation. We walked away winners and happy with the outcome. The Board realized that they picked a fight with the wrong people and made the mistake of pushing the matter until we hired an attorney. Not just any attorney. We hired Mitchell Katine. IN fact my mother is an attorney and has been for many years, so what can I say? An attorney hiring an attorney. We are very happy with Mitchell who I consider a friend and in the future we will always call upon him to assist in any areas of practice for which we have a dispute. After a full 9 hour day of mediation and after what we consider a major victory Mitchell insisted that he treat us to dinner, but not before taking care of business. After settling the matter he had a conference call on another case that he had to deal with before celebration. He multi tasks like we breath. It is clear he loves is job and takes great enjoyment in his clients. I noticed a negative comment on this review which was horrible for someone to post not knowing Mitchell. To allege he takes high profile cases that gets his name out there is crazy. Its not the cases he takes that puts him in the spot light. Its the way he handles each and everyone of them. Thank you Mitchell, Shawn, mom and I all appreciate all that you have and continue to do for us.
