At first glance, the new Pacific Law Group office on Main Street in Canton’s historic downtown district looks like a traditional spot where homebuyers and sellers gather around the closing table with their agents.
Look a little closer, however, and you’ll see signs of the “fun” that Justin Pacific alludes to when he describes the closing experience there as “fun and efficient.”
Children accompanying their parents are kept busy exploring the office’s multicade arcade cabinet, playing shuffleboard on a bar-top table or watching a movie on the large projection-screen television.
The perks for the adults are equally appealing: a modern, interactive experience, using cutting-edge software and closing practices that ensure what Justin describes as the safest and most secure transactions in the business.
“We provide the legal knowledge in residential and commercial real estate transactions of a large law firm, with the personal touch of a boutique-sized law firm,” Justin said. “Our firm embraces the latest changes in technology while keeping the personal touch and flexibility on every deal.”
Justin started the firm in January 2018 with an office in Woodstock. In four years, it has grown to include offices in Alpharetta, Midtown Atlanta, Duluth, Peachtree City, Cedartown and Marietta-West Cobb, in addition to the Canton office, which opened in November 2022.
“At all of our market centers, we entrench ourselves in the community, through hosting events, sponsoring local charities and schools, and actually participating in the local areas where we work and live,” Justin said.
In fact, the Nov. 3 grand-opening party welcomed about 150 guests from the local business and real estate community. The office’s speak-easy-style bourbon and wine bar, converted from a 300-square-foot safe, is perfect for corporate events like that celebration.
Justin is a graduate of the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law and has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in psychology from Florida Atlantic University. He enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, traveling and experiencing life in Woodstock, his home since 2011.
“Our business is growing rapidly, and we currently offer closings on-site in more than 30 locations all around Atlanta,” Justin said. “Our goal is to bring the small-firm services to neighborhoods all over Atlanta and beyond.”
Using the most up-to-date technology, “our process allows for secure client interaction, app access to our closing software and real-time updates on where our staff is on the closing process,” Justin said. Through the Qualia app, clients can check the progress of their closing, much like you can track a pizza delivery, seeing landmarks of the process, including the file being opened, in title review, cleared to close, etc.
Secure transactions. A secure server within the software platform is used to exchange information between sellers, buyers and lenders — including wiring instructions and personal information. This method of sharing information eliminates the need for email communications, which are at risk of being compromised.
Experienced attorneys. The closing attorneys have handled more than 30,000 transactions in their respective practices, Pacific said. “There is rarely going to be a situation that arises in the closing process that we do not already have several solutions to overcome.” The attorneys share their personal cell phone numbers, adding to the multiple ways — including social media messaging platforms, office phone, fax and email — they are available to their clients.
Remote service. Pacific Law will send attorneys to close locally in the area of the property in the transaction, specifically serving Atlanta proper and north Atlanta, at no charge.
