This attorney was referred by the realtor who showed us the house we purchased. The attorney seemed like she knew what she was doing but she missed the red flag. The real estate taxes on the house were alarmingly low. We were told the house had not been assessed in a long time and with new owners it likely would be so expect future bills to be higher. That made sense. However, Ms Kocinski took all the information the seller's attorney provided at face value; she did not do anything to look further into the numbers. Consequently, we were credited a very insignificant amount of money for 2016 and the first two months of 2017 real estate taxes. When we received the bill in June 2017, it was more than six and one/half times the amount quoted at our closing. The house was NOT reassessed between March 2017 and June/July 2017. How did the amount due rise so exponentially for the second installment of the previous year? Not only that, but on this second installment of 2016 taxes statement, it clearly shows that 2015 taxes were the same HIGHER amount. Now, Ms Kocinski tells us, "get a litigator". Well, the one we met with thinks SHE was remiss, but it will cost us thousands of dollars to pursue any justice. As of this writing, she hasn't returned my phone messages.

Exactly as others have said, Ms. Kocinski is highly knowledgeable and extremely thorough. I would highly recommend Kocinski Law Offices for any real estate matter. I was kept updated on the progress of my transaction, even during late evening hours. I am extremely impressed with the level of competency they have shown me and plan to retain their services for all future and legal work.
