ATG Issues Three Millionth Title Insurance Policy

November 4, 2014

In the midst of celebrating its 50th year, Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund recently issued its three millionth policy.

ATG attorney-member Richard Fiocchi of Bernabei, Balestri & Fiocchi in Illinois issued the policy to William and Jill Thompson.

Founded in 1964 by a small group of downstate Illinois lawyers, ATG had issued one million policies by 1994 and two million by 2004.

“This latest milestone is a tribute to our nearly 4,000 attorney-members and our dedicated staff who provide sellers, purchasers, and lenders with impeccable service each and every day,” said Peter Birnbaum, president and CEO of ATG.

Fiocchi’s firm has been associated with ATG since 1965 through its founding partner Bruno Bernabei.

“Each policy represents our pledge to protect the largest single investment of a typical American’s life—the purchase of a home,” added Birnbaum, who is a member of ALTA’s Board of Governors. “For the Thompson family, their home is where they celebrate holidays and create family traditions. ATG is honored to be a part of helping them and millions of other Midwesterners achieve their dream of home ownership. We also want to express our gratitude to Dick Fiocchi. Lawyers like him and his partners are the face of ATG, representing consumers in what is often a complex and bewildering process. Having a lawyer at their side gives consumers an advocate to navigate these complexities.”
