Real Estate

Western Pennsylvania Real Estate Lawyer

Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the real estate lawyers at Richards & Richards, LLP have been providing assistance to purchasers (home buyers, real estate investors, and commercial buyers), sellers (residential, land, and commercial sales), lending institutions (banks, mortgage brokers, private financing companies), and real estate personnel (real estate brokers, real estate agents, and real estate companies) throughout western Pennsylvania for three generations. We are title insurance agents and we underwrite policies for three national title insurance companies.

Our founder, the late John Richards, Jr., was considered a pioneer in accommodating real estate clients when providing legal services. He was one of the first attorneys who would meet at places of the client's choosing to perform real estate closings. His service and the quality of his work have been continually recognized by the "Best Lawyers in America" publication, and he was responsible for drafting the Model Forms used by Realtors throughout Pennsylvania.

Today John T. Richards, III and Jennifer Rea Abel continue the tradition of customer service and provide real estate closing services to many individuals and corporations across Western Pennsylvania.

If you need a real estate attorney in Pittsburgh or anywhere in western Pennsylvania, contact Richards & Richards, LLP. We want to make your real estate transaction as smooth as possible.
