Would not recommend this title company as we had an unpleasant experience trying to retrieve our escrow fund(s) upon termination of the contract. In summary, provided our wire details and confirmed it via a phone call, and still the funds were wired to a wrong account with no clue about next steps. I was requested to call my bank and help trace the funds with the provided info by rep from the title company. Spent several minutes on the phone with our bank wire dept and they couldn t trace the wire (most likely the supporting info / data provided by title company was incorrect). Finally, I requested they send us a check via overnight UPS/FedEx as number of business days had passed. Finally, recd a check almost a week plus after the contract termination. I understand mistakes occur especially in this case someone mistyped a wrong account # in the wire transfer. The fact that I had to proactively follow up and had to step in to assist with the wire analysis is/was mind boggling. This is the reason Title companies exist and charge premium services for this service. We will not be using this title company anymore as we lost trust and their lack of empathy.

From humble roots in the Jazz Age, Lawyers Title withstood the Great Depression and ranked among America s few leading title companies by World War II. The post-war boom saw Lawyers Title experience dynamic growth and become the first title company operating nationwide.
