Client Testimonials

Michael Abrams is a rockstar of a Lawyer. I have had the pleasure of working with Michael and his team a number of times on Real Estate transactions. What makes Michael such a standout is the speed of response, the thoroughness of his work and a real can do, positive, upbeat, solution oriented attitude towards his work. I emphatically recommend working with Mike for all of your Real Estate needs. – Sean McCann, 2023

Michael Abrams & his legal clerk, Natalie were amazing to work with. I had a refinance closing and it was a time sensitive matter. They closed this within a few days from initial contact, and the lender instructing them. No other lawyer would typically close a mortgage in 4 days. Thank you again Michael & Natalie! This is a 10 star review! – Kaitlin Pierce, 2023

We recently used Michael Abram’s services for the purchase of our new home in Ottawa. I am so happy my realtor recommended him to us because we had such a great experience. Michael and his assistant were very prompt at answering any of our questions and very good at explaining the steps of the sale to ensure everything went smoothly. Our lender gave us a bit of a run around towards the closing date and Michael was able to get all the paperwork in order on time despite the delays from the bank. This is the third lawyer I’ve used for a sale/ purchase of a home and By far the best experience. 10/10!! – Krista Loder, 2022

Michael Abrams has helped me sell and buy multiple homes and he and his team are always so wonderful to work with. Any time I have a question Mike has been available, he responds incredibly fast and he is kind and patient when answering my many questions! I have worked with other real estate lawyers and they have always been so hard to reach without going through many assistants and receptionists. Mike is always an email or phone call away, giving you a very comfortable and personal experience. I would HIGHLY recommend using Mike and his team! – Chelsea Visneskie, 2022
