"The purpose of this letter is to provide a positive reference for Atty Abraham Siegel with regards to service provided regarding mortgage closing services and post-closing follow up with both Chase and the borrowers. Atty Siegel and I have worked on over a dozen transactions over the course of the last year and his follow up as well as attention to detail have been impeccable. Atty Siegel is always prompt and prepared and that doesn't stop with the closings. On occasion both clients and myself have had post-closing questions and he has always been available. From title order date to closing date, everything is on time and there is never a concern and I highly recommend his services to your bank."
