Defalcation cases and trustee matters
In addition, our attorneys also represent title insurance companies in defalcation cases and trustee matters.
In the event of a defalcation of trust funds by an attorney, our lawyers represent title insurance companies, handle audits of title files, and negotiate and litigate for damages suffered by title insurance firms.
We also serve as trustees, serve as counsel for title insurance companies when a trustee has been appointed, and serve as counsel in voluntary audits of title files on behalf of title insurance companies.
