History


> History of Trust, Future of Growth
 
Lawyers Title was founded in Richmond, Virginia. Calvin Coolidge was our nation’s 30th president. The Charleston dance craze was in full swing. And F. Scott Fitzgerald had just written The Great Gatsby.
 
From humble roots in the Jazz Age, Lawyers Title withstood the Great Depression and ranked among America’s few leading title companies by World War II. The post-war boom saw Lawyers Title experience dynamic growth and become the first title company operating nationwide.
 
In the decades since, Lawyers Title has enhanced its reputation for continued success in economic conditions good and bad. And now we’re stronger than ever before.
 
In late 2008, Lawyers Title joined the Fidelity National Financial, Inc. (NYSE: FNF) family of companies, which collectively represents the largest title insurance and escrow services company in the world. You’ll be doing business with the same people you’ve known and trusted for years, but with the knowledge that your real estate transactions are backed by Fidelity – the #1 leader in financial strength.
