I have used The Shoaf Law Firm for many mortgage transactions and always noticed how they go the extra mile to make closings happen on time and as promised. The entire office pitches in when times are busy and performing remote closings is a great touch.

We have utilized the Shoaf Law Firm for real estate transactions since 2003. They cover the entire state and make the closing process on any real estate transaction streamlined and stress free. The paralegals always respond quickly and if they do not have an answer will work to help figure the out the answer to any concern. Ryan makes the closing enjoyable and he always takes time to answer all of your questions. They also probably have the best prices I have seen around. Definitely recommend them on any real estate transaction. Great Company!!
