Filling A Need For Efficiency & Expediency In Real Estate

The firm was created to fill a need for efficiency and expediency in the real estate industry. Often times, title companies do not have the resources to handle review of documents associated with closings, nor can they provide their clients with answers for complicated legal issues that create a cloud on title. Legal issues are outsourced to a law firm that maintains an independent legal practice, and that can take an inordinate amount of time.

McAlister & Garcia makes curative title issues a priority at the firm. Ken and Martin serve on the board of the title company and understand the needs of their title clients while simultaneously continuing to grow in reputation and practice as a law firm. Their partnership combines their individual histories in family law, real estate law, title work and probate to create a winning combination for the investors and home buyers alike.
