I connected with Mitchell through our adoption agency after speaking with a previous lawyer. He put my mind at ease from the very beginning and walked me and my partner through every step of the process. He responded immediately to my questions and was very up front with the process to ensure we had no surprises. Thank you Mitchell for everything, you were truly amazing and we will be connecting soon to discuss our family estate planning!!
I presented to Mr Katine a complex homeowners association dispute regarding a property I wished to develop and build a new custom home. Mr Katine patiently listened to a lengthy description of the facts, correspondence, and background information regarding the dispute. Mr Katine asked salient questions during my discourse to ensure complete understanding of my issue. Upon the full debrief of my issue Mr Katine boiled down my issue to the most important facts and laid out a legal approach for me to resolve my issue independently without further legal costs. I implemented his plan and was able to successfully resolve my issue. As a small business owner, and in my first ever need of legal assistance, I was quite surprised that a lawyer would first present a solution for a prospective client to undertake independently of a lawyer's assistance. This was greatly appreciated and I was impressed. During our discussion, Mr Katine exhibited an experienced approach to homeowners associations and was obviously well-versed in who the main players are within the legal community's representation of homeowners associations. I can unreservedly recommend Mr Katine for anyone seeking legal assistance.
We were in a dispute with our POA board over a construction deposit. Despite being clearly in the wrong, they refused to return our $1000. Mitchell wrote a fantastic letter explaining why they were wrong and demanding the return of our deposit within ten days. They caved in six. He's an excellent attorney who doesn't waste time.
Mitchell has been very responsive, trustworthy, respectful and great at communicating. I have already referred him to several people because I know he will do his best to help or point them in the right direction. Mitchell took my case after it had been filed incorrectly by another lawyer and after I had been misled by others. Even with my past legal mistakes, Mitchell was able to recover my losses and settle my case relatively quickly. I felt that Mitchell did his best to help me and was looking out for my interests. If I had to say something negative about Mitchell, it would be that he is too kind and doesn't let the emotions of a situation phase him. For this reason, I trust him better than I trust myself. Mitchell went above and beyond anything I would ever expect from an attorney.
I had an issue with my HOA board and Mitchell was able to handle the situation in a very timely fashion. We reached an agreement with the Board very promptly. I would recommend Mr. Katine's services to anyone.
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.
