Athens, GA Real Estate Attorney

It is important to look for a real estate law firm that is experienced in title searches and title insurance. The firm you choose should also be able to get the best title insurance policy at a rate you can afford. When hiring a real estate law firm there are a few questions you will need answered:

  • Will your representation complete a comprehensive title search? 
  • Will they thoroughly review documents to ensure you are protected from title defects? 
  • Will they look at title issues for both you and your mortgage lender to ensure a smooth closing? 

A reputable legal firm specializing in real property closings needs experience in the following areas: title searches, title insurance, title issues, title defects and title repair – a lawyer who can practice in all of these areas will be able to provide you with the best services possible. 

Laster Law Firm LLC has just the team for your real estate & probate needs. We work with buyers, sellers, real estate agents, Title Companies, Title Insurers, and mortgage lenders to ensure a smooth real estate title closing. 

If you have any questions regarding Title Searches, Title Defects, Title Insurance, or anything else – please contact our office today. Our firm offers free consultations so you can meet with our team before deciding whether to hire us as your real estate law firm. 

We would love the opportunity to show you how we can help protect your family’s assets now and in the future!

What wonderful office staff! We had a closing with them last spring which went fine, but I lost all the paperwork for taxes. Called today and they were so nice on the phone and emailed me what I needed right away! Highly recommend!

We used John Laster for our recent refinance closing. John took us through our book of documents to sign with ease and efficiency, answering any questions that we had. When he says he wants to "Bring Peace to your house", he delivers!


The cost of the service costs this much money and can be more or less depending on many factors.
