What wonderful office staff! We had a closing with them last spring which went fine, but I lost all the paperwork for taxes. Called today and they were so nice on the phone and emailed me what I needed right away! Highly recommend!

We used John Laster for our recent refinance closing. John took us through our book of documents to sign with ease and efficiency, answering any questions that we had. When he says he wants to "Bring Peace to your house", he delivers!

Laster Law Firm closed a property for me a few weeks ago. I was very impressed with the attention to detail and professionalism of his entire team. Everything was in order on closing day and John was clearly interested in making sure it was a good experience. I will be recommending him to my friends.
