The law firm of Rossi, Hamerslough, Reischl & Chuck seeks to provide its clients with aggressive real estate solutions. RHRC specializes in commercial and residential real property and business litigation and in negotiating complex real estate transactions. The firm is known for its vigorous representation of buyers and sellers, real estate agents and brokers, title and escrow companies, commercial and residential developers, landowners, commercial landlords and tenants, contractors, and financial institutions.
RHRC is comprised of a group of the most talented, experienced attorneys in the industry. San Jose Magazine’s list of “Top Attorneys” in Silicon Valley repeatedly recognizes the firm’s team, and several of the attorneys were also recently selected as “Super Lawyers of Northern California” by San Francisco Magazine, which represents the top 5% of bar association members. RHRC has preserved its small, boutique feel in order to provide attentive personal service to its clients.
When a client’s needs require litigation, RHRC’s attorneys utilize the most efficient approach to obtain the best results, whether it be settlement negotiations, mediation, arbitration, or trial. Among them, the firm’s attorneys have tried hundreds of cases with notable success.
RHRC’s land use and transactional attorneys are regularly involved in the purchase, sale, and development of real property, including multi-million-dollar purchase transaction and lease negotiation and obtaining entitlements, zoning changes, and planning department approvals. Recent matters include the sale of a multinational agricultural business and a multi-phase 35-acre commercial development.
RHRC’s lawyers also serve both their clients and the real estate community through outside activities. Members of the firm frequently serve as mediators, arbitrators, and expert witnesses in commercial and residential real estate disputes and volunteer their time in the judge pro tem program at Santa Clara County Superior Court. One RHRC attorney has published a regular column, "Real Law," in the San Jose Mercury News for 10 years, and several of the firm’s attorneys are contributing columnists to the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal and its Q&A section. The attorneys frequently serve as lecturers and authors on real property issues for the Bar Association’s Continuing Education program, conduct regular seminars and lectures for real estate agents and brokers, and teach real property and contracts classes at local law schools and colleges. The firm’s attorneys advise real estate boards in Silicon Valley and serve on committees, helping draft purchase contracts and disclosure forms in use throughout California. One RHRC attorney serves on the Tax Assessor’s Appeals Board; another is one of the directors of the Housing Industry Foundation. Two attorneys serve on the Board of Directors for Baseball San Jose, working to bring major league baseball to the community.
The firm’s offices are in an ideal location, combining historical charm with a contemporary feel. Adjacent to the firm’s offices is the renovated Cook Mansion, one of The Alameda’s historic landmarks. Built in 1926, the California- and Spanish-style structure was once home to entrepreneur and sportsman Fred R. Cook and his family. Incorporating efforts of designers and architects who worked on Hearst Castle, it features tile roofs, wood-beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and decorative tile. The firm is located in the addition, a project completed in accord with San Jose’s Historic Landmarks Commission’s strict guidelines and awarded San Jose Development Briefing’s “Outstanding Renovation Project of the Year” award in 1986.Read less
