About Us

Our History

Northwest Law began as The Holfinger Law Firm, founded in 2004 by attorney Jonathan Holfinger. In 2013, Jonathan merged his title company, Arrow Title Agency, with Northwest Title, and The Holfinger Law Firm became The Holfinger Stevenson Law Firm, with the addition of attorney Scott Stevenson. This expanded the firm’s reach to include many local Columbus, Ohio real estate professionals and investors. The firm grew to include attorneys in Eastern Ohio, Southern Ohio, Southwest Ohio, and Northern Kentucky. Since 2016, the firm has had practicing attorneys in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. At the end of 2021, Scott Stevenson retired and The Hofinger Stevenson Law Firm rebranded as Northwest Law. Northwest Law’s mission is to act as “counsel for the real estate industry,” providing legal services to the members of the real estate industry and their clients for both their personal and professional legal needs.

Our Commitment To Our Local Communities

Our principals are very involved in the land title industry at the national, state, and local levels, having served varying leadership roles for associations and committees related to both land title and general real estate legal groups. Our attorneys provide many continuing education classes to members of the real estate community, as well as speaking at small informational seminars for homebuyers.

In addition, we would like to provide more resources to help our community understand various legal situations better. Therefore, we have created a resource page on our site to share information about recent legal decisions affecting our community, definitions of certain transaction terminology, and more.
