Today a360inc announced an expanded partnership with Howard Law Group, a full-service real estate law firm based in Boca Raton, Florida who added CaseAware to the list of a360inc services they currently utilize.

"CaseAware's industry-specific tools for automation and integration are reason enough to make the switch, but it was our proven dedication to the success of Howard Law Group that finalized their decision to add CaseAware," said Jan Duke, COO for a360inc. "Our expanded partnership will further strengthen Howard Law Group's position in the mortgage marketplace for the remainder of 2020 and poise the firm for exponential growth in 2021 and beyond.”
