A limited practice officer (LPO) is a person certified by the Washington Supreme Court to select, prepare and complete documents in a form previously approved by the Limited Practice Board for use in closing a loan, extension of credit, sale or other transfer of real or personal property.

Ronhaar, a 43-year veteran of the title insurance industry, has previously served three terms as the president of the Washington Land Title Association, and is a former chairman of ALTA’s Education Committee.
