Testimonials

It's "true", Howard Blum is "the best lawyer at uncovering money". I referred a friend of mine who has a business cleaning Bio Hazard events and "hoarder's who sometimes don't want to pay the expense of cleaning up their homes, even though they are threatened by their local municipalities to "clean up" or "else". My friend never received payment from a pair of hoarders and has been waiting a year for her money and Howard has managed to get some of it, but he's "dogged' in not giving up and my friend will receive they money she is owed for her services. Thanks Howard.

Many thanks to Bill Campbell, Esq. of WJC Legal, for the privilege of helping him with his currency exchange needs. It is the ultimate compliment when an All Cities member uses your services him/herself, and it's a great feeling to know that he will be saving money as a result.

Richard Brownstein is a very experienced bankruptcy attorney. My client is a struggling business looking for financing, but given their weak financial performance, that may not be an option at this point. Richard spent time with me on the phone to discuss the possible remedies and bankruptcy options so I had alternatives to offer the client. He also offered to speak to the client to fully understand their situation and guide them accordingly. Thank you Richard for your time and advice. Passing it on to my client should help them decide their options, and they already have the name of a qualified attorney.

Thank you Jia Zhou for helping my client improve their accounting and acclimate to the US system of accounting. The Company is owned by a Chinese resident, so all accounting is done overseas. Jia was able to literally speak their language and help them understand how to establish an accounting department in the US and to help guide them going forward. Jia's quick responsiveness and knowledge made me look good with my client, and will no doubt help the company manage things better going forward.

My thanks to Alan Frankel, a knowledgeable and responsive insurance agent. I asked him for help with the insurance needs of my business. He found both insurance for the business and was able to secure a bond. He asked the right questions and found a carrier that covered my needs at a reasonable price.

Eric Shaw, CEO of New York Credit, will run credit checks on request to help All Cities members gain insights into the financial condition of prospective clients. Eric did such a credit check on a prospective medical instrument manufacturing company for whom I wish to propose online and social media marketing campaigns. Within less than an hour, Eric gave me the thumbs-up on the financial condition of the prospective company along with some key financial metrics. This valuable information gives me peace of mind and the confidence that the prospect is financially strong. Thank you very much, Eric, for your generous help. Your credit check capabilities are an under-stated benefit of membership in All Cities Network.

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Howard Tenn, HECM Vice President at the Federal Savings Bank. In the space in which Howard and I operate, you run across a lot of poorly-trained, aggressive, transaction-oriented individuals. Howard is anything but. He is a relationship-oriented professional in every sense of the word. He is a master of his craft, able to explain at an elementary level the use of a reverse-mortgage as a cash-flow tool. Furthermore, he is a problem-solver at heart. While you see many financial professionals angling for larger pieces of their clients' pie, his gift can be found in his ability to show a client how to expand the pie. As we work to help ensure our clients never outlive their assets, Howard is able to help a client to liquefy without having to liquidate one of their largest and most expensive assets. I would highly encourage that you spend a few minutes with Howard to see how he may be able to help you do this.
