As one of California's leading title insurance regulation lawyers, I maintain a vigorous practice representing title insurance companies, underwritten title companies, and independent escrow companies. Other attorneys in California refer clients to me when in need of a Los Angeles title insurance and escrow attorney. They know they can rely on my boutique law firm to provide personalized service to their clients at a level normally found only in a large firm.

I represent escrow companies and title companies primarily in transactional matters but also in regulatory matters before the California Department of Insurance and California Department of Business Oversight. My cases often involve:

  • Expansion of existing title company authorization to additional counties of operation
  • Defense of companies before the insurance commissioner in California Department of Insurance enforcement actions
  • Defense of companies and their shareholders from alleged illegal rebates and/or commissions
  • Defense of companies and their shareholders from alleged "controlled business" and/or "affiliated business" arrangement violations
  • Defense of companies and their shareholders from alleged violations of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA)
  • Defense of title companies and their shareholders from alleged violations of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) interpretations of Regulation Z and Regulation X, of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974, as amended
