The most professional group of attorneys in North Carolina. We had the pleasure of working with Brittany who is a real professional in the true sense of the word. She just passed her bar exams and is a brilliant and wonderful person that explained everything to us in our closing. I would recommend Moore and Alphin and Brittany to everyone if you want a perfect, error free, professional closing. Robert Giangrisostomi

LaurieAnn was a phenomenal closing attorney. She took the time to make sure Iunderstood each document and all of my responsibilities.

She was very professional, thorough, and direct. Can't recommend her enough!

Nina Gunnell was our attorney for closing on our new construction home. She was very knowledgeable professional, and had an amazing personality. She made the closing process stress free and effortlessly as possible. She explained all of the documents throughly in the simplest form and was helpful with answering any and every question my husband and I had. She gave impeccable customer service and I highly recommend her for legal services.

Quick, efficient closing with Moore & Alphin today! They offer a drive through service for executing documents, which was nice due to the pandemic and my daughter being out of school today.

Such a weird concept, doing drive up closings, but Nicholas made the process super easy. There were a few hiccups (not his fault), but he talked us through them from start to resolution. And in the end, we got our keys, so we're happy!

They are doing Curbside closings for Real estate. Basically just hand you a stack of papers and say call me if you have questions and they give you a direct phone number. Not too impressed by this. Other firms have come up with conference rooms with plexiglass screens around the attorneys and everyone wearing a mask, at far end of table. Houses cost a lot of money and this system is just not in my clients best interest considering the money being transacted.

They are professional, responsive, and will answers the questions or concerns patiently. They made our first home purchase lot easier and smoother. American Dream 🏡

The closing conducted with this firm was very convenient and professional. I have no complaints and would highly suggest them to anyone closing on a home.

Abby (Abigail) was an absolute delight to work with on our new home closing. Her tenacity in dealing with our lender gave us the much needed confidence to know our closing would not carry over to another day. To say she was patient & empathetic to our needs is an understatement. She was so much more. A favorite quote comes to mind for the 4 hours we got to spend with her last week (5:30-9:30PM) "The darkest nights produce the brightest stars" Abby was without a doubt our bright star.
16:59 20 May 20
Betsy was great throughout the close process during COVID. She was communicative and very detail oriented. Would use her firm again for close.
14:54 12 May 20
We did a “drive-thru” closing and it was very easy.
02:21 13 Feb 20
Kelsey was phenomenally efficient knowledgeable quick concise and we had the best time and conversations mixed in with business. Janine is simple the best paralegal of any type law office with whom I ever have had the pleasure to work. Moore & Alphin will be my real estate law firm of choice, when the dust settles from the move I will leave social media feedback and all the word of mouth advertising anyone could want. Thank you!

Moore & Alphin are a great closing company. They communicated clearly and effectively throughout the process. They worked with us so we could close early in the day and still have furniture delivered later. I recommend this firm for your closing.

I worked with Moore & Alphin for the first time this year. My client closed on her townhouse in June and working with Moore & Alphin was nothing short of excellent. Anytime I had a question by email or phone, it was answered immediately. Communication for me is the cornerstone of any relationship! On the day of closing, my client was late and we were accommodated immediately upon arriving. The closing itself was organized, all paperwork in order and Attorney took the time to explain anything client had questions on. I have another closing in September and look forward to working again with Moore & Alphin. I highly recommend Moore & Alphin. It's so important as a Real Estate Agent to work with a Law Firm who takes pride in their work ethic.

I closed on my first house with Moore & Alphin. They were kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and quick! Candace was incredibly welcoming and helpful from the moment I walked in the door. Justin was my closing attorney - he had a great sense of humor and made the process very smooth and comfortable. Thank you all so much for being the final step in this major life event. I highly recommend anyone to use M&A - I can't imagine using anyone else in the future.

Moore & Alphin made the closing of our home the easiest part of the process! As a former Realtor from NY, I cant say enough about attorney Kelsey Hathaway. Closing on our home was a quick, easy and pleasurable process that was completed in 45 mins! Looking for a polite, competent an friendly attorney for your Real Estate representation? Call Kelsey Hathaway and know everything on the legal side of the transaction will be handled.

Kelsey from Moore & Alphin took excellent care of us during our new construction home closing. She patiently answered all of our questions and made sure we understood everything we were signing, ensuring we received copies of everything. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The closing happened quickly and without any delays. We were extremely pleased with our closing experience!

Have done two closing with Moore & Alphin. They have been on time, professional, and make the experience enjoyable. They are very quick to get back to me when I have questions. Only downside is that they are very busy and even scheduling 3 weeks in advance I could not get a closing early in the morning on the day I wanted. I would definitely recommend using Moore & Alphin!!!
