To Whom It May Concern:
I want to commend Michael Seden on the excellent work that was performed for my company Hornsby Law Group.
In my position as managing attorney, I am in constant contact with technical vendors, technicians and engineers to keep the firm infrastructure maintained at the highest level.
Michael has shown a level of dedication in his work with us that I have not seen equaled. Often, jobs are partially completed, short cuts are taken, or best practices are ignored in order to finish a contract more quickly or out of laziness. Michael shows great pride in his work and has not given up on our very challenging product through nights, weekends and every possible type of setback imaginable.
I commend the quality of his work product, and would give him the highest recommendation to any company with which he would apply.
With kind regards, I am, Very Truly Yours,George Smith
