About Stephen

Stephen D. Morel is an 18-year Louisiana-licensed attorney with extensive experience clearing, quieting and insuring titles to distressed real estate through transactional and litigation practices.

In 2014, Mr. Morel created Louisiana’s first title insurance product and corresponding underwriting process that permitted Louisiana title insurers to systematically evaluate and insure tax sale titles. This unique insurance product and process has proven to be an overwhelming success, to date having facilitated the return to commerce and the active tax rolls of over 4,000 decades-old delinquent, mostly blighted properties throughout the State, with clear, merchantable and insured title, generating the recovery of millions in previously ‘uncollectible’ delinquent tax and ultimately over $40M in unbudgeted revenue for local government.
