Diligent, Responsive, Professional and Caring Attorney
Attorney Hecht handled three different real estate matters for me in the last year and a half. He is very professional and diligent in how he conducts his business. He was always on top of things and made sure our end of things was wrapped up quickly and done correctly. Attorney Hecht was always there with advice and got back to me quickly when I had a question or concern. He also was in contact frequently with the other parties attorneys so things would move along quickly. I always felt he cared about protecting me and wanted to make sure I was informed on what was happening and was happy with how things were going. I was very happy with everything and would recommend Attorney Hecht to anyone looking for a good attorney.
