As a professional Real Estate agent specializing in residential and commercial real estate, occasionally challenges come up that need legal attention and assistance. I have worked with Rick Linnell on several of these occasions through the years to resolve these issues. Every situation we've dealt with has had an exceptional outcome. I attribute this to Rick's extensive knowledge, professionalism and communication skills. Rick and the Linnell & Associates, PLLC firm firm get the job done every time.

I would give them six stars if I could. What four other law firms told me couldn’t be done in less than a week they manage to do in half a day. I was able to purchase my house on the final day of redemption! They were extremely quick yet very thorough. I would recommend them highly. (Nicole Gettler and Debera Guenther specifically handled my matter). Thanks so much!

That said, I really appreciate his business acumen and style. He's council that cares!

My real estate agent gave us Rick Linnell’s name when a wetland issue came up with our property. From the first call through our meeting with Rick, his assistant and Rick were professional. Rick was knowledgeable about wetland property, gave us his expert opinion on how to deal with it, recommended a great assessor for wetlands. He also gave his advice on another issue. I really appreciated his time and left the conversation feeling like I had a plan in working with the township. I highly recommend him.
