Hey! How’s it hangin’? There’s really only one way to find a good settlement attorney and that’s to ask around. Other investors in your area should be able to give you an idea of some good ones (your local investment club, if you have one, is ideal for this). If access to local investors is limited, I’d try calling the title companies directly and asking to speak to their attorney. There’s a question on the Legal Corner entitled “How do I find a GOOD real estate attorney?” which should give you an idea of the questions to ask each attorney you get in touch with. When you find one you like, set an appointment to go in. Talk to them about what you want to do and see if they’re willing to help. Good luck and keep on truckin’!
