to the borrower?"" explained David McDonnell, managing director of Statebridge. ""While there are many legal providers in our industry today, membership within Statebridge's Select Attorney Network verifies the attorney is 100 percent committed to that business philosophy and our high-touch approach.""
As part of Statebridge's servicing model, specialists are assigned to an individual loan throughout its lifecycle and become the primary point person for the lender and borrower alike.
""We are not afraid to roll up our sleeves, dig into a loan file and gain a firm understanding of the borrower's situation to develop a successful servicing strategy that meets our client's requirements,"" McDonnell said. ""We look for the same type of commitment we make to our borrowers and clients from the attorneys we select for our network.""
William LeRoy, president and CEO of American Legal & Financial Network, added, ""Teaming up with Statebridge and its unique approach to loan servicing affords our member attorneys the opportunity to excel in all that they do. By working in concert with the Statebridge team we can help to raise the mortgage loan servicing industry's bar in risk avoidance, quality legal services, and overall excellence.""
