We are branching out and moving forward!

April 27, 2021

MWH has been growing our business and setting up new offices across North Carolina. We decided that now was time to work on getting our information and advice to YOU, our clients. We are happy to start with this. 

McCullers Whitaker and Hamer, PLLC was created in the year 2004 under the name McCullers & Whitaker. Since 2004, the firm has grown tremdously. The firm added a new partner in the spring of 2013 and became the MWH firm that people have come to love. MWH has continued to expand it’s practice by adding new attorneys that practice in areas outside of real estate. Though, the firm stays true to it’s first love: real estate. The firm has handled thousands of closings in between our many offices whether a purchase or a refinance. Our attorneys know real estate and are prepared to help you with your home and beyond. Our first newsletter comes on the tails of COVID-19, which unintentionally, gave us time to look into our social media presence, redesign our website, and update our attorney photos. 

Motto: Your law firm for life! Our new changes are only helping us to stay true to this! 

The new website was the first step in making it easier for you, our clients, to contact us, and have clear addresses for our offices across the state. Even though our firm is growing, we are still a small-business that can have provide a personal touch when helping clients with any legal matter.

We handle a wide range of legal matters from real estate to criminal, or from family law to wills/estates. We provide high-quality service with the local business touch. We are revitalizing the business in order to make sure any client that walks through our doors is satisfied with their experience. Give us a call and see how we can become your firm for life.

What Happens After Closing?

Congratulations! You’ve finished signing all the documents, and you can rest your hand. However, the process is not fully complete just yet. 

After closing, our dedicated staff reviews the file to ensure all documents were signed and notarized before ensuring we have money from both the buyer and/or the lender. Next, the deed of trust and the deed are scanned in, uploaded, and submitted to the County for recording. The process may take a few hours depending on the time each step takes. Once it is recorded, keys and/or checks are ready for pick up!

COVID 19: Response and Effects

The recent pandemic of COVID-19 has rocked the country. From stay at home orders to social distancing, COVID-19 has changed our everyday lives. It has changed the legal world as well. Most legal work is done through phone, email, WebEx, and other electronic tools. Our office atmosphere has changed as well.

Our office cares about your safety and health. Due to COVID-19, we implanted new policies in order to support social distancing. Our conference rooms are cleaned in between closings. We have limited the amount of people that can attend closings in order to protect not only our clients but our staff as well. We have limited walk-in clients, and installed new air filters to make sure our air is crisp and clean. We’re your firm for life, and we want that life to be a long one.
