First American Title Data Breach

First American Financial Corporation and First American Title Company (FATCO) is one of the largest title insurance companies in the United States and holds nearly 25% of the title insurance market share. In the process of purchasing a home, customers supply FATCO with sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, biometric records, and bank account numbers. Business entities may supply sensitive personal information of its members or officers and will provide sensitive corporate information, including financial information. It was confirmed in May 2019 that the FATCO website allowed anyone to access approximately 885 million files containing sensitive personal information of FATCO customers, dating back more than 16 years.

On June 25, 2019 Tousley Brain Stephens filed a class action complaint against FATCO for failing to protect the sensitive personal information of its customers.

    Chase...thank you for your professional assistance in the resolution of the recent lawsuit against me. I could not have obtained such a favorable outcome without your assistance even though I am a lawyer myself and have handled similar matters during my over 40 year legal career.

    You have saved me tens of thousands of dollars over what I could have obtained had I tried to handle the matter myself. With hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake you were worth every penny of your most reasonable fee. Beyond that was the peace of mind for both me and my wife during the process, and you can’t put a price tag on that. Your knowledge and expertise were much appreciated.

    Janissa - I would never talk to any lawyer about anything until I talk to you first. You are just simply AMAZING and not only did you go completely above and beyond to ensure my daughter's trust was safe and secure, but every time I thought I couldn't go on, you constantly assured me that everything would be all right.
