Title Examination

Experienced Title Examiners

Zukowski, Bresenhan & Piazza LLP (“ZBP”) offers in-depth experience in title examination and related issues. Indeed, over half of the firm’s attorneys examining title have more than 30 years experience each in the title arena.

The firm values service to our clients, provides experienced lawyers at competitive fees, and employs a system designed to yield work product with maximum efficiency. The experience of ZBP professionals is reflected in the clients’ opinions, which are intended to be practical roadmaps for our clients in resolving title issues and which avoid pages of useless information and impractical requirements. Many of our examining attorneys have years of in-house experience, and understand the client’s needs and expectations in implementing a practical opinion.

The firm is able to satisfy the full spectrum of its clients’ title examination needs, including drilling, division order, acquisition, leasing and financing opinions and “stand-up” examination. The firm’s attorneys also have substantial experience in the preparation of title curative documents and advising clients, including field landmen, with respect to title defects during leasing or other acquisition processes.

We have examined title throughout Texas, from the Permian and Delaware Basins; through the Barnett Shale, East Texas, Austin Chalk, Georgetown/Buda, and Gulf Coast, full circle to South Texas and the Eagle Ford. We also examine Louisiana titles, both North and South, and are available to assist clients with title examination in other states through affiliations with other attorneys and firms.

The attorneys currently available for title examination are   Pascal P. Piazza, Susan A. Stanton, and M. Steve Smith. Through partnerships, the firm has access to additional experienced, reliable, and cost-effective title attorneys for those jobs that require additional personnel.
