LandAmerica Unifying Arizona Escrow Operations Under LandAmerica Brand Name

August 31, 2008

LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc. plans to unify its Arizona escrow operations, presently operating through Transnation Title Insurance Company, Capital Title Agency, Inc. and Lawyers Title of Arizona, Inc., will do business under the LandAmerica brand name as LandAmerica Title Agency. This is another step in the company's transformation of its collection of independent businesses into an integrated and unified operating company. The change is scheduled for completion in September 2008.

Unifying its businesses under the LandAmerica name reflects the company's success in the marketplace and the growing recognition of the LandAmerica brand in Arizona and across the country. LandAmerica is the only real estate transaction services company to have been named #1 in Mortgage Services for two years in a row on Fortune's(R) list of Most Admired Companies.

"Everything our customers have come to expect from Lawyers Title of Arizona will remain unchanged," said James M. John, Group Senior Vice President -- LandAmerica(R) Residential Services. "Our customers will continue receiving the same unsurpassed menu of solutions for their real estate transactions, delivered seamlessly by the same professionals committed to superior service that they've come to know and trust."

John added that customers can rely on the LandAmerica representatives they currently work with to answer any questions about the name change.
