“This is a reference for Rex Caldwell. We retained him as an expert on an extremely complex negligence action against a title company. The issue involved negligence by the title company in failing to protect against a wire fraud as result of which our client lost $1/2 million. Mr. Caldwell was always easy to work with, and prepared a very thorough report that showed great depth of knowledge regarding the title company industry, and procedures for preventing fraud. I would not hesitate to use him in the future as an expert for any similar type of case.”

“After many weeks of searching for an expert witness to assist in litigation involving coverage under a title insurance policy, wading through phone numbers that were no longer valid, and conflict after conflict with the opposing party, we were directed to Rex Caldwell. We could not be more pleased. Rex was able to use his more than 40 years of experience in the title industry to appreciate the complexity of our case, butthen distill that complexity into concepts that are easily understood. We call on Rex more and more to get his thoughts on title issues in many of our other litigation matters as well as our transactional work.
Rex combines unparalleled experience and insight, humor and professionalism. Rex has rapidly become our “go to” guy for all title and related issues.”
“We had the opportunity to work with Mr. Caldwell involving litigation where the title company’s Standard of Care was central to a successful resolution of the case. After reviewing the relevant material, Mr. Caldwell independently identified the pertinent issues and facts, then drafted a clear, concise, and persuasive expert opinion. He also provided valuable insight based upon his business experience, which formed an essential part of our settlement and litigation strategy. The litigation was quickly and favorably resolved due in large part to Mr. Caldwell’s efforts. We intend to utilize his services again.”

“Our company exists as it does today because of Rex Caldwell. As a new company without direct experience in the title and escrow industry, Rex took us from ground zero to
a fully licensed company ready to comfortably operate. Rex knows the right people to work with and has a deep understanding of the title and escrow industry, both in operations and also from an owner’s perspective. Rex is smart, reliable, hands on, and very responsive. He endeavors to make sure that no stone is left unturned and excels in the necessary details. Whether serving as an expert on a complicated legal matter, helping with licensing issues or handling matters pertaining to business operations, Rex is someone that you can
rely on to deliver what you need. It is
without hesitation that I would recommend Rex for any project related to the title and escrow industry.”
