Gallo & Iacovangelo built its business on residential real estate services. We have helped thousands of people complete the purchase or sale of a home.

Background

Upon graduating from law school in Ohio, Kevin accepted a position with Gallo & Iacovangelo, LLP and returned home to New York. "There was no question in my mind that I wanted to build my practice here in Rochester. While I loved Dayton, it was not my home, and I am glad to be back."

On the Practice of Law

Kevin has learned that the practice of law is more than technical skill and ability.  While these qualities are fundamental to a successful practice, there are other details that allow the attorney-client relationship to flourish.  Returning telephone calls, providing regular updates and direct communication play an imperitive role to success.  "Listening to my clients and understanding their needs enables me to focus on how to best counsel them," says Kevin.  "Giving each of my clients direct access to ask questions and voice their concerns allows me to identify the issues that their particular situation presents."  Kevin takes pride in knowing that he has gone the extra mile to get the very best results possible.

Kevin lives in Greece, New York with his wife Briann and children, Audrey, Natalie and Carter.  He enjoys spending time with family and he is an avid Rochester Rhinos fan.

Kevin Hoyt, business lease guru
Kevin assisted us with obtaining a lease for our new office. He reviewed our proposed lease and was helpful in identifiing several key points to consider before we signed. He helped us to negotiate updating some specific terms regarding pricing, terms in case we outgrow our space and default considerations in our lease to be more favorable, but was also honest with us in keeping our own expectations reasonable for this market.

Fill-in for partner
Hoyt stepped in when Iacovangelo decided not to show for our property closing. I found him to be snotty, arrogant, short-tempered and unethical. When I asked him what our closing fees were covering, he told me that one of the things he does is make sure there isn’t a lien on the property. I knew this wasn’t true because our real estate agent has to make sure there isn’t a lien on the property before it’s even listed on the MLS. I also knew that the buyer can pay their own taxes with the Town and that buyers/sellers don’t have to pay an attorney to do this either. I guess all of my questions irritated him. If you’re a buyer/seller of residential property in New York State, Monroe County, you don’t need an attorney to buy or sell a home. But they will never tell you this. Based on my experience with this attorney, I can’t recommend him.
