Our History


Alvin Nored was born and raised in Ft Worth, Texas. He obtained his first degree in Farm and Ranch Management from Texas Tech in 1954. Alvin worked on his family’s ranch for sixteen years before deciding to study law at St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio. Out of 118 students, Alvin ranked third in his class and became a proud member of the Phi Delta Phi society. Following law school, Alvin began to practice Real Estate Law in Lampasas.

In handling real estate transactions for Burnet County, Alvin discovered the need for a more efficient, faster service locally. Together with Camm Lary and Eugene Russell, Attorneys Abstract was formed. The company was originally housed in, what is now, the Burnet County Courthouse Annex building. In 1975, Attorney’s Abstract moved into what would be it’s home for over 43 years at the corner of Washington and Pierce on Burnet’s Historical Downtown Square.
