Dear Mr. Schachter,

“I would like to personally thank you and your entire staff for your professionalism and dedication on my foreclosure cases. After being served with several pending foreclosure actions a few years ago, I knew this was something I could not handle alone. I met with several local attorneys to go over my cases and within in minutes, I knew you were the perfect attorney for me. You took the time to go over my entire portfolio and created a game plan for each of my properties facing foreclosure. Today, I am proud to say each plan that you have put in place to save my properties, have worked out extremely well. Thank you again for your hard work and dedication. You definitely have a client and friend for life.”

“Mr Schachter was a real comfort to me in Landlord/Tenant court. He arrived to court before I did and stayed with me an entire four hours. I was pretty hysterical at one point and he totally calmed me down. He’s a very nice and caring Attorney. I’ll be using him again.”
