Ironclad Title was the FIRST title company in the State of Louisiana to obtain ALTA Best Practices Certification from an independent, third-party. On July 8, 2015, the ALTA Elite Provider CPA firm of Pershing, Yoakley & Associates, P.C. certified Ironclad Title as fully in compliance with the American Land Title Association (“ALTA”)’s Best Practices. In response to changing industry standards, ALTA developed “Best Practices” to provide a proven method for lenders to ensure the companies with whom they work understand the changes, and serve to protect the integrity of the transaction as well as the customer’s privacy.

In addition to our real estate practice, our attorneys are actively involved in local, state and national trade associations. Jack Robichaux, Ironclad Title’s managing partner, is the past President of the Louisiana Land Title Association, and has earned the prestigious designation as a National Title Professional™.

Ironclad Title is proud to serve as a licensed agent throughout Louisiana for Chicago Title Insurance Corporation, First American Title Insurance Corporation, Fidelity National Title Association, Old Republic National Title Insurance Company, Commonwealth Title Insurance Corporation, and Stewert Title Guaranty Company.

Very few Title Agents in the country represent this many companies due to the high remittance requirements.

Robichaux, Mize, Wadsack, Richardson & Watson, the Lake Charles law firm that wholly owns Ironclad Title, has earned an A.V. rating, the highest possible peer review rating, with Martindale Hubble and has had this rating since the mid-seventies.

We have examined title to industrial tracts, including the plant sites for Citgo Petroleum Cooperation, Axiall and multiple Industrial sites for the Lake Charles Harbor & Terminal District, and Occidental Petroleum, Westlake Polymers, and W. R. Grace, in Calcasieu Parish and the Occidental and CS Metals plant sites in St. James Parish. In addition, we are currently working on several multi-billion dollar projects in Calcasieu Parish. Ironclad Title completed the initial title work on a 65,000 acre tract in the River Parishes, and several other tracts ranging in size between 10,000 to 25,000 acres. Ironclad Title also recently completed the title work on two salt dome projects, as well as a multi-million dollar Go Zone Bond financed transaction for the construction of a Southwest Louisiana medical facility. Over the past 10 years Ironclad Title has averaged over 700 residential closings each year.
