Made closing on refinance a breeze. All bases covered with no snags. Would hire again without reservation and plan on referring my co-workers to him.
I found Mr. McCormick to be personal, intelligent and savvy. He spoke with me, not to me and immediately impressed me with his knowledge. Unfortunately, I have needed several attorneys throughout my life and Mr. McCormick is the 1 in 100.
