Jacob Mauldin’s practice focuses primarily on corporate and commercial real estate, title insurance and defect resolution, and mortgage banking law with a specialty in default services.  With over a decade of legal experience, he is a seasoned attorney and brings to the firm a diverse background, ranging from courtroom advocacy as a trial attorney to serving as settlement agent at the closing table. In his capacity as underwriting counsel for numerous national insurance carriers, Jacob possesses an expertise in commercial and residential title. He has also accumulated a breadth of experience representing national financial institutions, loan servicers, and government-sponsored enterprises in the areas of mortgage banking and consumer lending law. Jacob now specializes in the representation of lenders, real estate investors and middle-market companies in corporate and commercial real estate transactions as well as national mortgage servicers in default servicing matters.  He is heavily involved in broadening the firm’s offerings, including the creation of its non-judicial foreclosure and title clearance group.

In addition to transactional disciplines, Jacob has been involved in corporate litigation as well as criminal, domestic, and family law matters both in private practice as well as in the public sector serving as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Alabama.  His vast array of legal knowledge makes him remarkably creative in resolving issues both proficiently and professionally, allowing him to provide exceptional services to the firm’s clients.

An Alabama native, Jacob has recently transitioned to life in Atlanta, Georgia.  When he is not providing superior services to the firm’s clients, he can be found spending time with his wife and three young children.
