About Us

First Title & Abstract, Inc. is the Naples area’s oldest title company— serving Marco Island, Naples, and the entire State of Florida for nearly four decades.

We provide real estate closing, escrow, and title insurance services  throughout Florida— including everything from commercial and industrial sites to single family homes, condominiums, and lot purchases.

The company was founded in 1978 by Arthur Verner Woodward— a local attorney who moved to Marco Island from Illinois. In 1971, Arthur founded the first law firm in Collier County; he and his wife had twin boys— Mark and Craig Woodward— who now operate the title company and are principals in the law firm, Woodward, Pires, & Lombardo, P.A.

For years, Mark and Craig learned from their father the art of preparing title searches and abstracts, and they helped build an impressive title plant.

Today, the company is one of the top title agents for Chicago Title and Old Republic Title, and has remained in continuous operation longer than any of its competitors.

Attorney-Owned and Operated

As an attorney-owned and operated title agency licensed to transact business throughout the state of Florida, First Title & Abstract, Inc. provides unparalleled professional settlement services for our commercial and residential real estate clients.

Many title agencies do not have attorneys on staff, and cannot provide the level of legal knowledge, skill, and attention to detail which we offer on every transaction.
