About Joseph

Learn Joseph’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Real estate
    I represent buyers and sellers of all types, and have a strong understanding of legal issues related to encumbrances and appurtenances (ROWs, water rights, etc.). I am licensed to sell title insurance, and represent banks in refinancings.

  2. Estate planning
    I prepare wills, healthcare powers of attorney, business powers of attorney, and HIPAA agent designations, among other estate planning documents.

  3. Landlord or tenant
    I frequently represent landlords in landlord-tenant disputes, eviction matters, and conveyances of rental properties. I can promptly generate residential and commercial leases to fit the unique needs of your property and tenants.

  4. Business
    I form LLCs and other business organizations, and prepare related operating agreements and similar documents.

I strive to offer clients a representation based on direct, responsive, and open communication. I will try my best to answer your questions in a way which is as free from legalese as possible, and I understand how important it is for clients to discuss complex matters directly with me. I will respond to your telephone calls and emails personally, instead of handing your inquiry to a paralegal or secretary. I value face-to-face conferencing for important decisions, particularly in relation to estate planning work.

I emphasize cost-benefit analysis, keeping things simple, and providing my clients with honest assessments. My goal for any representation is straightforward: provide the client with competent work, for a fair price, which is done in a timely manner.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Estate Planning
I recently hired Joe Ransmeier to execute my estate planning. I met with Joe to discuss my wishes. He drew up some documents for my review. Of course, I had a few questions, which he answered in easy to understand terms. Shortly there after we met again to finalize the documents. I would highly recommend Joe's services.

Real-estate buyers will be in good hands: competent, responsive, accessible
I engaged Attorney Joseph Ransmeier to represent me, as buyer, in a recent real-estate transaction. My case was fairly straightforward, although there were a few peculiarities, such as a foreclosure in my property’s history and the drafting of a non-bank mortgage. In our initial conversation Attorney Ransmeier used clear language to list the parts of the transaction, provide a time frame for each part, and break down costs. He explained which costs were fixed (e.g. transfer tax) and quoted estimates—quite accurately—for those which were not (e.g. billable time). Once retained, Attorney Ransmeier patiently listened to my questions and responded with clarity and authority, always making sure that he had conveyed his meaning to my satisfaction. In one case where he had a doubt, he was honest in telling me that he had consulted a colleague with expertise on the matter in question. Along the way, he kept me abreast of seemingly small (but to me important) matters regarding my case by sending concise email updates. These were nice reminders that I was being looked after. I particularly appreciated that in all our email correspondence he took the time to address me by name, wrote in complete sentences, and signed off courteously. He was also not above putting in neighborly touches that reminded me I was dealing with a human being. Summing up, Attorney Joseph Ransmeier did exactly what he was hired to do, did so efficiently and competently, and was consistently responsive, accessible, and polite. I confidently recommend him to others seeking counsel on real-estate matters in northern New Hampshire.
