It depends on what you mean with ‘good attorney’. For example, I use Robert Witcher for this lot deal and I used him for agreement for deed (which most attorneys won’t handle, i found) and I’ve also used him when I was trying to buy a tax lien. He’s an investor and knows a lot of unusual things.
Then you can use Robert Black at Southeast title, who’s an attorney and does title searches and straight forward closings. I’ve also done double closing with him. No complicated deals, though, He wants to deal with easy closings and is inexpensive.
Then I also work with Grover Bailey, who knows his stuff, but is very conservative - so nothing in gray areas. He’s also a probate attorney, so he can do my probate/abandoned lots from beginning to end. I don’t have the phone book handy, but they’re all in it.
SO, it really depends on what kind of deals you’re doing.
