Dear Mark,

I wanted to thank you for helping me to make my first time home buying close a comprehensive and relatively stressless one. I appreciate your hard work and thoroughness during the negotiation, mortgage, underwriting, title and closing process.

Warm Regards,


We consulted with Mark Steier regarding our home inspection issues and, with his help, we were able to resolve them. As a result, we had a smooth closing with no surprises. Mark and his staff were always responsive and a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend them!

Hi Chris,

Taurin and I would like to thank you for your services. We felt really comfortable with your reassurance and your commitment to our case. You also kept us abreast of what was happening. We are grateful for a fresh start and we will keep you in mind if we need an attorney again.

I have used Chris McCormick of Steier & McCormick, LLC, for business as well as personal real estate transactions in Connecticut for over eight years. I have found Chris and his staff, especially his paralegal Mimi, to be responsive to transaction issues that arise, patient with clients as well as informed, which helps guarantee a smooth closing.

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff for the excellent job on the closing of my home purchase in Simsbury. I also appreciate your efforts in working through very complex association documents, which were vital to grasp as part of my purchasing decision was based on what I could and could not do with my property.

As a general counsel for an international company, I have worked with attorneys from around the world and I believe that I got my best value for my legal dollar working with your firm!

Thanks again.
All the best.

I contacted Attorney Chris McCormick to help me with my financial problems due to my loss of income due to work related injuries I suffered. He recommended Chapter 7 bankruptcy to discharge the credit card and other unsecured debt I had incurred and had no realistic chance of paying back. He thoroughly explained the process and promptly answered the many questions I asked him about my filing. He made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process and I highly recommend him to anyone considering filing bankruptcy.

Our nightmare began in May 2009 when my husband injured his back. This injury caused him to be on Medical Leave from his job and eventually the lost of his job. We started to have difficulties keeping up with our monthly bills, because the short term and long term disability payments were not received in a timely matter. We had to choose to pay our mortgage first and then our bills. Since I was having such difficulties a friend referred us to a Company called First Foreclosure Prevention to help lower our mortgage payments. We were told we could save over $800 and we jumped at the chance due to our financial situation. We were told by First Foreclosure Prevention to stop making our mortgage payment, home equity loan and to fax them all the papers we received regarding the house and not to speak to either lender, because they were in negotiations with them. We learned from a realtor that showed up at our home that our home had been foreclosed on. Our world crumbled right in front of us. The representative from this company told us business is business. We were livid. How could they be so cruel. At this point we sought help from Christopher H McCormick. He listened to us and helped us the same day we called him within hours and took over our case. We were informed that this company was not licensed in CT. With Christopher McCormick's help we have been able to modify our loan with our mortgage company. I would recommend him to anyone that has the same situation as we have. He has worked miracles for us and we wish him well in his future endeavors.

Mark Steier and his team at Steier & McCormick, LLC are an absolute pleasure to work with. The firm's common-sense approach and counseling not only helped my family chart the right course through the matter they helped us with, but also worked with us to make sure that we were on the right track moving forward as they brought things to a close. Even though my family has moved out-of-state, we continue to enjoy a friendship with Mark and the firm.

Mark Steier is an asset to our real estate agents, our loan officers, and their clients. His accessibility is unparalleled; that's important when our people try to put (or keep) a transaction together. Mark has earned my respect as an extremely competent, decent, and knowledgeable real estate attorney. No one cares more about the personal welfare of their clients and the real estate agents and loan officers who also work with those clients - than Mark does.

I recommend Chris McCormick as a closing attorney for all of my buyers and sellers. His extensive knowledge of real estate law, relationships with lenders and top notch paralegal staff provide my clients with tremendous confidence that their closings will go smoothly. Having offices in both West Hartford and Avon also

makes it very convenient. I have used Chris to handle my own closing and my personal and professional experience is that you will always be in good hands.

I first met Atty. Bob Carey in 1983 when he represented me on the closing of my home in North Granby. Since then, Bob has not only represented me on many other home sales and purchases, but has also represented many of my clients in their real estate needs. It is no wonder when my business partner and I started our own real estate company four years ago, we asked him to be legal counsel for our company.

I know I can always trust Bob for excellent legal guidance. He is trustworthy, thorough, responsive, and totally dedicated to his profession.

I have known Bill Severni and the staff at Steier & McCormick, LLC for the past ten years. I have always found that Bill will go the extra step to make sure whatever they are working is done correctly. He has always been very responsive to any special situation as it has arisen.

The paralegals in the Avon Office, Donna and Laura are exceptional in the responsiveness and attention to detail. They put into practice the philosophy of doing the work right the first time.

It has been a pleasure to work with them over these past 10 years.

I've worked with a lot of attorneys in the twenty years that I've owned my mortgage company and Bill Severni is the best of the best. Bill and his staff will do whatever it takes to get our loans closed in a timely and efficient manner. Invariably our borrowers will remark after the closing that Attorney Severni was incredibly thorough and accommodating. Whenever a friend or family member asks me for the name of a good lawyer I give them only one name, Attorney Bill Severni.

Attorney Bill Severni is one of my top choices as a Real Estate Attorney in the Farmington Valley. As a Broker Owner of RE/MAX Advantage, I am always confident that each client is treated like they are "his only clients" with expert real estate representation. One of the strongest qualities that Bill possesses is his gentle, but firm manner that always puts his clients in the best possible position. He is a great listener and a consensus builder with no personal agenda-just his clients. Look no further and you will be pleased with your choice.
