Does anyone have a recommendation for a real estate attorney in Norfolk County for a home purchase? Thanks!

What town are you buying in? Norfolk County is a big place. Plus, any real estate attorney is licensed to operate in the entire state. So, if you were buying in say Needham which is in Norfolk County you could close with an attorney in Natick which is nearby but in Middlesex County.

Generally speaking, there are very few county governments in this state and we do very few things at the county level. So, locals don't often refer to anything by county. I'd actually venture to guess that many people don't even know what county they live in.

They can practice statewide, but most usually have closings in either their county or adjacent ones. My husband has been doing closings for 30 plus years and I don't ever recall him having one west of Worcester, although he has done a few on the Cape.

I recently attended a closing in Dedham presided over by an attorney who's office is in Shrewsbury for a property in Walpole.

Yes, but those aren't that far apart.
