From our door to yours. Bringing our experience to your experience.

Ward & Taylor, LLC was formed in 2005 by the merger of the real estate law practices of Bill Ward and Jonathan Taylor. Before joining together, they had the largest real estate settlement practices in Northern Delaware. They both shared a dedication to quality legal representation, outstanding customer service, and embraced the use of technology. Best Abstract, LLC was created as an affiliate of Ward & Taylor, LLC and handles our title for Pennsylvania transactions.

Since then, Ward & Taylor, LLC has established five convenient office locations throughout the State in Wilmington, Middletown, Dover, Rehoboth Beach, and Bethany Beach. (CLICK HERE for more information about our settlement locations)
