I highly recommend Michael Zeigler Michael handled my Deed in lieu.
I met with several lawyers dealing with short sales, foreclosures and deed in lieus and I they always gave me to another person. When you hire Michael you get Michael Ziegler. He made me feel my case was important and I felt he was determined to get my deal done. That's just what he did.
I was referred to Michael by my realtor when my very uncompromising lender refused to do a short sale. I needed a dedicated professional, highly experienced legal representation who would represent my interests by defending and ultimately prevailing against my difficult lenders. Michael always updated me and returned my calls, emails and answered all my questions in detail. Michael got my foreclosure dismissed and deed in lieu finalized with the lender and even got a check from the lender for relocation and my line of credit forgiven. I'm so happy it's all over thanks to Michael Zeigler.
Mr. Ziegler was very helpful in helping me successfully resolve my case. He was very patient and thorough in answering all my questions and providing guidance while representing me.
I felt he keep me informed and updated, and always responded to my phone calls in an appropriate time. I would use him again without hesitation.
We were extremely pleased with Attorney Ziegler's knowledge and professionalism. He communicated effectively and successfully met our expectations. Attorney Ziegler prepared and recorded our quitclaim deed accurately and timely. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy and professional Attorney.
I had been in a very lengthy and very complex short sale process. I hired Mr. Ziegler to negotiate on my behalf with the second lender and the HOA on my property. Mr. Ziegler kept me informed every step of the way answering all my questions and even when I called over the weekend. My realtor, title officer and the other members on my team individually noted his professionalism, his gracious and effective communication and his excellent results. The other professionals on my team indicated that they intended to use his services should the need arise in the future. Mr. Ziegler was tenatious on my behalf in working to make a deal with my creditors which he did successfully when previous lawyers had been unable to reach and agreement. I highly recommend Mr. Ziegler.
Michael is Handling two cases for me one for on fee basis and another on a contingency basis. I did not like the answer mike gave me on my fee case but it was the truth and he gave me back more then half my retainer which most attorneys would have kept.. I appreciate his honesty and we are moving forward on my other case.
For my first time using a lawyer I had a very pleasant experience with Mr. Ziegler. He was very easy to contact, not only by phone but by e-mail as well. He was thorough in answering my questions and explaining everything at hand. He really made me feel comfortable. He was able to negotiate a settlement deal that I was comfortable with. He also he did not make any assumptions or move forward with anything without letting me know what was happening. I would be comfortable using him again as well as referring people to use his services. He is a very professional attorney who respects his clients.
He was accessible, returned calls promptly, and answered all of our questions in detail explaining everything in a clear and concise manner. We were kept well informed every step of the way.
I believe our case was more difficult than most since we had a private lender, yet he was able to negotiate terms that worked out extremely well for us.
