Exceptional
I have had the pleasure to work with Mr. Slaten and his firm since 2006 as one of our outside counsels for Citibank, N.A. He and his staff were very knowledgeable and prompt with our litigation cases regarding contested foreclosures and bankruptcy adversaries on residential (1-4) family real estate loans.
