This is actually the second time that I have hired Rocco and I could not be more pleased. I hired Rocco to represent me in the sale of my duplex rental property. Rocco is extremely easy to work with and was always very prompt in addressing any of my concerns or answering any of my questions. Due to the fact that the property had leases and tenants, I wanted to ensure that I was covered from a legal side and Rocco did just that.

Attorney Valvano did a great job assisting and handling the sale/purchase of our real estate. He was very efficient and detailed through both transactions, even when we had an issue with the first buyer. He handled the situation quickly that allowed us to close on our new home on time. We appreciate his service and we would highly recommend Attorney Valvano to handle your transactions. Thank you!

- Mark

Attorney Valvano did an excellent job helping me with my real estate sale/purchase. The process was not an easy one, due to a number of unforeseen reasons, and also took a lot longer than expected to close due to those problems. I truly appreciated his time and patience with the process. I also had a lot of questions on the previous deed/parcels and he was patient explaining everything thoroughly so I would understand it. I would highly recommend him, as he was highly recommended to me.

I was interested in speaking with a lawyer about my pending home purchase, and I decided to reach out to Rocco. Prior to the closing, we had a detailed phone conversation regarding aspects of the purchase that were causing me to feel uneasy, and he took the time to thoroughly answer all of my questions and address each concern. Rocco also offered to review my closing disclosure, which gave me added peace of mind. Upon receiving the CD, Rocco gave me a call and walked me through the entire document. He also picked up on two possible discrepancies and worked quickly to resolve them on my behalf. I truly appreciate the excellent service Rocco provided me.

Attorney Valvano has been my legal representative for the past 15 years. He had assisted me with all of my legal needs as well as closings on multiple properties. Rocco is always available to provide legal advise and make recommendations to guide me. I can honestly say, he has become someone who I trust and enjoy gaining advise from.

I own an Insurance Agency and have sent several clients to Rocco for closings on new home purchases. Everytime I sent a client to Rocco they returned with nothing but good things to say. He is very honest, professional and charges a very fair rate.

- Ed

Attorney Valvano Jr. went above and beyond as my lawyer. He always made the time to talk to me when I needed advice and was very prompt in returning calls and following through with information. I have a great level of respect and trust in him and would feel very comfortable seeking his counsel in the future.
