Spectacular attorney
Elina is one of the most competent attorneys I have seen in my time. She came to my closing very well prepared and managed to get me a $5000 credit at the closing. She was aggressive and a great advocate for me. I would recommend her highly.

Went over and above to help me close my deal
I was a first time home buyer and Elina really helped me close the deal. There were some difficulties in closing, and Elina was very responsive and walked me through everything to help me get into my first home. I would recommend here for anyone new or experienced trying to buy a home.

Elina is rock star who provided incredible support throughout the homebuying process
My mortgage broker referred me to Elina after having a disheartening experience with my initial attorney. The first time I reached out to Elina's office, she answered the phone herself and verbally walked me through the process of what I could expect from her and what she needed from me to move things forward. Elina continued to make herself available to me for any questions, especially around the contract and inspection, even scheduling calls at night and on the weekends to accommodate both of our schedules. Following the inspection, she worked so hard to protect my interests and to get a timely response from opposing counsel. The day of closing, she really took the lead, walking me through the closing disclosure and loan documents line-by-line taking care that I did not sign any document without understanding it first. Once it was all said and done, she assured me that I could contact her with any questions or concerns. I did, in fact, follow up with her about five months after closing, to get her insight on my property taxes. I received a questionable solicitation from a real estate company indicating that a tax buyer had purchased my property taxes and offering to "help" by purchasing the property "as-is." I did my own research by contacting the Assessor's and Clerk's Offices, and was understood that nothing was outstanding. The company apparently had outdated information but I decided to shoot Elina an email just to be on the safe side. Elina followed up with me the next morning and was kind enough to look again into the history of my property taxes. She assured me that my taxes were all paid current. Knowing that I'm a first time home buyer, she went a step further by giving me a comprehensive refresher on how my upcoming taxes would be paid by the mortgage company, when to check its status and how to appeal my taxes down the road. Elina really held my hand from beginning to end, making me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to buy a home. Not only is she skilled and knowledgeable, but she's also patient and kind -- virtues that I came to value so much throughout the ups and downs of the home buying process. I would not hesitate to use Elina again and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Excellent experience
I would highly recommend Elina to anyone who is looking for a real estate expert. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate transactions and is very good at answering any questions that you may have. Her response time is very quick and she took care of all of the documentation required to complete the closing process which went extremely well.

If you've ever worked with unprofessional people then you know what not to look for. She is very professional, very knowledgeable, has great work ethics and a pleasure to do business with. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about him. I will certainly be using him for my next real estate purchase. Thanks Elina!!

Great Attorney!
Elina is very thorough and helpful during the closing process. She was excellent in retrieving home closing documents with little time needed from my own personal schedule. She was accessible even during her vacation! She offered to help me with documents I could easily produce and worked well with the seller's lender and attorney to make the sale final and smooth during closing. Would highly recommend!
