This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Extremely Knowledgeable and Detail Oriented
I work for a local Bank handling the consumer and residential mortgage collections. We recently transferred all of our case work to Attorney Haines and could not be happier. We do not have anyone within the Bank who is seasoned at collections and had been using more of a general practice attorney. The Bank in general feels much more confident in the way things are not being handled than ever before. Attorney Haines takes the time to explain the process, answer questions and discuss options with us during every step. We have changed a lot of process (for the better) and are finally starting to feel confident with them. We would not have been able to make these positive changes had it not been for Attorney Haines. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field and if he cannot answer a question immediately he will research the answer and provide us with the sources of his research. Attorney Haines is also extremely detailed oriented and is following up with the Bank on outstanding matters typically before I even have a chance to inquire.
