Jim Richards, esq.

Jim was given the task of managing the operations of a multi-state title company at 22 years of age, while attending Northeastern University School of Law full-time. This experience combined with a desire for entrepreneurship led Jim to form Standard Title & Escrow in April 2019. After closing 100 real estate transactions in the first 100 days in business, Jim looks forward to providing his clients with superior service for the years to come.
