I called Michael Gilman at 9:00 p.m to notarize a will at the home of our loved one who was declining rapidly and near death. He wasn't able to do this for us but generously
offered a referral to someone reliable, that could help us. I sincerely appreciated his quick response to my call and his referral. He was very professional and I trusted him.

I called Michael in a crisis for a last minute notary, he was very helpful and well informed and even though he was unabailable due to his overflow, he gave me several recommendations and guided me through my crisis. A gentleman and a scholar, and you would be doing yourself a disservice by not giving him call!

Michael is extremely helpful! I sent him an email around 11:00p.m. and he replied within in 15mins. He listed all the details that I needed and provided additional options that I could choose from. Thank you.

I sent an e-mail to Michael Gilman after 6pm and got a professional reply at the same day. In his letter, Michael addressed all my questions. He provided me with a highly informative consultation, including comments on my situation and possible solutions. Now I know what to do in my case and recommend Michael to future clients which look through the reviews.

Svetlana Kozlova on 8/18/2016 2:40:39 PM

My experience with Mr. Gilman had been very positive. Even though I had not directly used his services, he had selflessly helped me direct my case into the right direction. I am very thankful for his help and will most certainly contact him next time I am in need of notarial services.

Bence Kotis on 8/17/2016 7:26:35 PM

In July 27, 2016, I need a public notary to notarize a Power of Attorney (PoA) for me before sending the signed form to my business partner.

Mr. Gilman answered my phone and patiently listened to my case. We are on the phone for a while (more than ten minutes). After understanding my situation, he kindly referred me to another public notary, Mr. Bernie Ment, because it was late in the day and he already on the road back to his home and too far away from the Comfort Inn I stayed. I contacted Mr. Ment to get the PoA notarized and sent it out that night.

However, I am very appreciated for the help Mr. Gilman provided to me. I strongly recommend to anyone who needs a public notary and would absolutely choose to utilize him again in the future.

Michael answered the phone and my request for notary service on a Sunday night with a positive polite and energetic tone. He was thorough, and offered a number of alternative free solutions to my predicament, which proved to me he wasn't just in it for the money. I needed to ha e the document notarized immediately, and Michael was prompt and professional in his comet ion of the task. Knowledgeable, and professional, I would highly recommend him and would absolutely choose to utilize him again in the future.

Chad Althiser on 8/2/2015 6:39:37 PM

Mr Gilman was extremely helpful and professional about my inquire to his services. Before making a appointment he made sure that I fully understood the process and what I need to have before I proceed.

I would strongly recommend Mr.Gilman to anyone who needs a Notary Public.

Joseph Kinn on 5/19/2015 12:37:10 PM

He was very knowledgeable and super helpful. I won't be doing business with him right now but that's only because he gave me a ton of valuable information to save me money. He seems like an upstanding guy.

jess miller on 3/8/2015 12:22:24 PM

Michael was very accommodating and was very much willing to extend help and expert advises. He gave me my best option for my own benefit EVEN if it means loosing his chance to take money out from me. He truly looks after his clients best.

Great service. And good to talk to.

Marissa  on 11/13/2014 5:16:17 PM

Michael is very informative as a notary public. I met Michael while attending his class at Onondaga Community College. He was very professional and helpful...he knows his stuff. Michael is enthusiastic and honest. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a notary public.

Michael has done several Signings for me and it is always a pleasure dealing with someone as experienced as Michael. I highly recommend him for all signing needs.

John Alaimo on 11/3/2014 5:49:32 PM

I am had a hard time finding someone on a Saturday to notarize a I9 form. I went to the banks...with no luck. They couldn't do a I9 form. I called Mike and he gave me some great information about why they couldn't and what he would need to notarize it himself. I had the all of the proper paperwork, but time and money was an issue for me at that moment. He told me about checking some other places that might be able to notarize a I9 form. With his advice it worked...I got it done. Thank you Mike

Dutch  on 8/23/2014 12:45:31 PM

I attended Michael's Notary Public class at OCC which was extremely helpful in preparation for the test. Now that I'm a Notary, I've contacted Michael with questions. He's been prompt, helpful, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend his course & any other Notary services he can provide.

Jennifer Kinney on 8/19/2014 8:09:48 AM

As a Canadian, I thought the differences between Canada and the US from a legal point-of-view were similar, oh boy I was wrong!!!! I needed to sign some papers written by a lawyer in the US in Louisiana and I need to sign them in the US, so I fought great I cross the borer to NY and I look for a notary and I done; Michael was kindly helpful to clarify me the differences and what a notary in NY could do and that I needed a lawyer all this by e-mail and me on route to NY, believe me Michael¢s advice saved a lot of trouble.

Pedro Taborda on 7/31/2014 6:56:36 PM

As a Canadian I thought the differences between the US and Canada from a legal point-of-view were not that different, I was wrong.!!!! I had a legal situation were I need to sign legal papers written by a lawyer in Louisiana , I was informed - incorrectly - all I need was a notary, Michael (by e-mail and me on route to NY) clearly explained to me the differences and what a Notary could do and - in my situation - what I needed was a lawyer; believe me that save me a lot of trouble and gave me piece of mind thanks to Michael

Sivan Golan on 2/5/2014 4:29:14 PM

I took the class at OCC from Mr. Gilman. I tried many times to read the manual with no luck. I couldn't get through it or understand it . Mr. Gilman broke it down into bite size chunks and made it understandable. I went and took the test with confidence and passed it. Thanks again for a great class.

Peggy Christensen on 10/1/2013 2:23:16 PM

Michael did a great job for me. He kept me notified of the status of the signing, from confirming he received the documents to letting me know the documents were in FedEx. He called the customer and arranged an appointment that was good for both he and the customer. If I have another signing in his area, I will be sure to give him a call

David Zein-Eldin on 9/12/2013 8:07:04 AM

Michael was extremely professional as well as personable. Extremely competent notary - had entire package of mortgage documents signed/completed/notarized in minimal time with ZERO inaccuracies. Great working with Michael - highly recommend him to anyone.

Call Mike.
Hes gets it right!


Andre Hatchett on 3/15/2013 11:58:07 AM

I took a Notary Public class with Mr. Gilman recently at Onondaga Community College. The class was very informative and the written information provided all the facts needed to take the Notary test. During our class, Mr. Gilman, announced he would make time to go over the questions before we took the test if we had questions. I took him up on this offer and met with him to go over some things I was not sure of. I took the Notary test 3 days later and got my notification I passed 3 days after that. I am going tonight to have him give me my oath.

Kathy Chappini on 2/5/2013 2:33:28 PM

Michael was very professional and patient answering our questions. If we need a notary, we would certainly request him again.

Shirley Arsenault on 1/16/2013 6:05:04 PM

Michael was very nice and thorough, we had a question about one document, so he called on it, we signed it and we were on our way. Thank You

Larry and Janice Dunn on 12/26/2012 3:14:06 PM

Michael Gilman's sharp eye for detail, ability to explain complex forms, and affable manner made a difficult closing bearable, even pleasant. My husband and I would highly recommend his services.

Marcia Robinson on 11/30/2012 5:03:16 PM

Michael did a very nice job working as our notary to assist with a mortgage loan. He called a day in advance to confirm the date and time of our meeting and then called again the day of the meeting to confirm again. He arrived right on time which was much appreciated. He went through the paperwork at a good pace and we never felt rushed. He was very friendly and professional, a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Michael to others in the future.

John Hall on 11/21/2012 7:56:57 AM

I called Michael Gilman when my stepdaughter proved to be too unwell to leave the house to execute a Power of Attorney. On very short notice - within a couple of hours - he came to the house prepared to do a routine notarization. When it proved that the documents we had prepared were not on the appropriate form, he helped us to locate and download the right document (for free) and when, on top of that, our printer didn't work he connected his own printer and got our documents printed, then proceeded to do a thoroughly professional job of notarizing all four copies. In all, he devoted time and effort "above and beyond the call of duty" all for a modest fee, and I cannot recommend him too highly. We are very grateful.

Diana Clark on 9/28/2012 4:29:40 PM

Michael was very professional, but not at all stuffy. He made us feel comfortable, and confident that he knew what he was doing! I would definitely recommend him to anyone! My husband feels the same.

Lori Riggs on 9/15/2012 7:26:50 AM

Very good experience with Michael today in processing our mortgage refinance. I would highly recommend his services.

John Cavanaugh on 3/16/2012 12:45:21 PM

Mr. Gilman was very pleasant and very professional through the whole experience. His phone calls and visit were always at the pre specified time and he answered any questions that I had with very knowledgeable answers. Mr. Gilman is a credit to his profession and I hope to deal with him if I have need of a notary again.

Jamie Dougherty on 2/9/2012 8:44:19 AM

Michael was very professional and personable. He took his time to explain all the papers that my mom was signing for our loan. If someone needed a notary we would refer them to Michael.

jolynn / ruby / cheri killingbeck / killingbeck/ vince on 2/7/2012 7:53:01 PM

We definitely recommend Mike Gilman, and will not hesitate to use him again if the need arises. He was in touch with us before our appt., was punctual, professional, and very personable. He was thorough, made sure everything was understood, and a pleasure to meet and work with.

Bonnie Neubauer on 1/7/2012 6:22:36 PM

Michael went above and beyond to help us close our loan. He was professional, and took the time to answer any questions we had. If the need arises in the future I will use him again.
