Crushed our lawsuit opponent in late 2022
I hired this firm in 1-2021 to sue my neighbor for damage to my property from his tree roots. We asked for (1) removal of the 3 offending trees and (2) substantial monetary damages. In 5-2021, Missy took over the case, her opponent being the attorney for the neighbor's homeowner insurer, Liberty Mutual. In 12-2022, this settled. The 3 trees were removed, and the insurer paid the max it was allowed to pay in its liability policy, which was several hundred thousand dollars. This was about the best we might have hoped for ! Missy's talents compared to her opponent were day-and-night, completely one-sided. Would certainly recommend her, anytime.

Highly Recommend for Easement Dispute
RHRC recently represented my partner and me during an easement dispute with a neighbor. Immediately after our initial consultation, it was obvious that Missy Cornejo was exactly who we needed to help us resolve this issue. She provided clear and authoritative guidance on what our rights were and the recommended course of action. Throughout the process, she was professional, confident, and firm with the opposing counsel. And by the time we concluded, we had an agreement in place that gave us the peace of mind knowing that we had established the right set of boundaries and we had a common understanding of the easement with our neighbor. Missy was truly exceptional. I highly recommend RHRC. Actually, I already have to others, and will happily do it again.

Hire Her
From the very beginning, Missy proved to be an excellent lawyer. Our case lasted almost a year before we reached a settlement and every step of the way, Missy was extremely responsive and provided sage advice. I highly recommend Missy!!

Steadfast, calm, factual, direct, empathetic, patient, no BS.
RHRC was the best law firm we could have chosen when dealing with a situation that lasted about six years. Ron Rossi was recommended to us via very close and personal friend. He brought Missy Cornejo into the lead for our case and we could not have been more pleased. Ms. Cornejo was unwavering in her calm demeanor and determination to help us get resolution in our matter. Even through Covid, she helped us stay focused while her firm navigated the closures and delay of the legal system. It was important that we could trust Ms. Cornejo because our case affected our entire family of four for a very long period of time. She understood how important our case was to our future quality of living and home life. We knew we would eventually get to a positive end of a very long and frustrating dispute. We had the right lawyer by our sides and would highly recommend RHRC and Missy Cornejo. We will definitely refer her - she is an expert in her field.

Very prompt and professional
I worked with Missy on a neighbor dispute issue. She was always quick to respond to my questions and gave me good advice without pushing me to make a decision on how I wanted to proceed. I appreciated her professionalism and courtesy.

Outstanding work provided by Missy Cornejo
Missy Cornejo took a very complicated real estate issue and provided a clear and concise response to a lawsuit which ultimately saved my family many thousands of dollars. She is an excellent communicator, responsive to inquiries for help, and very knowledgeable in every issue with which we had to address. Based on numerous consultations with her and her detailed submissions with respect to the situation we encountered, I highly recommend her for any real estate-related transaction.
