Because of Joseph's responsiveness and ability to explain our options within our Purchase and Sale agreement, we were able to close rapidly on the sale of our family's property. I would recommend to anyone that you review your P&S with an attorney, but not just any attorney—go to Joseph Rockne and you'll be treated well with honesty and knowledge of the system.
Joe assisted in resolving a lengthy real estate dispute and I highly recommend him for his real estate expertise and integrity. His professionalism, knowledge of the law, and keeping the facts straight before both court and mediation was instrumental in a successful outcome for me. During the entire time, Joe quickly kept me informed and kept up with all the legal requirements. I have had him review other real estate matters and will continue to do so.
Joe handled our matter quickly and efficiently and was honest and specific about what he proposed to do, the likely costs, and the probable outcome.
Joe has helped me in many ways, over several years and with several different properties. Specifically, in negotiating with the tenant, reviewing leases, fighting adverse possession and even reviewing a reverse mortgage, to start with. His input has helped me, and saved me some money. He has also assisted me by referring me to others for tasks like reviewing title history, and other legal transactions. He always keeps the facts of my properties correct, which is surprising to me as they are fairly complicated. I have referred several clients to him, as I have been very impressed.
I have been in the mortgage industry for over 23 years. Joe has handled my personal realestate transactions and those of my clients well. He is as good as it gets and i know this first hand as i have been involved in numerous deals involving attorneys. I will continue to refer Joe all of my clients.
A neighbor sued for adverse possession after we removed and replaced a small fence back onto the correct property line. I brought the lawsuit to Joseph Rockne for help and advice and was immediately impressed with his knowledge and excellent counsel. He has kept on top of this lawsuit every step of the way. The case has not yet been settled, however I don't worry about it because I have full confidence he is protecting me and working toward the best possible outcome.
I hired Jo to work on a complex issue with a neighbour who had utilities on my land and no formal easements due to a poor quality short plat by the person who sold each us us our houses. Jo was excellent. He was very experienced in real estate law, very respectful, kept me informed, provided clear explanations of my options, worked hard to resolve the issue prior to our final court date and eventually got all parties to attend mediation and agree a settlement, no small feat given the personalities involved. I highly recommend Jo and would hire him again.
