of your legal document needs

Guided by years of legal experience, our legal document assistants (LDAs) offer an affordable alternative for legal document help. Formerly known as Independent Paralegals, Legal Document Assistants are not attorneys, but legal professionals who are authorized to assist self-representing litigants (pro se) with the preparation of legal documentation.

This means that we cannot give you any kind of advice, explanation, opinion or recommendation about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, strategies or options that you may have.

All Legal Document Assistants (LDAs) are bound to practice according to Bus. & Prof. Code § 6400, et seq. The principal LDA is registered and bonded in Fresno County and Madera County.

Who Are We

My work experience began at my father’s Machine Shop in San Jose, California where I began my work life at the age of 14.
 
I helped my father to manage his office when I turned 18 and kept on going until I was 24 years old. Being a single parent was difficult and I was always afraid of my daughter being taken away from me by her father. I was not familiar with custody and visitation laws and is when I decided to work on my Paralegal Certificate. Becoming a Paralegal gave me the confidence of how the laws function in custody and visitation. I was able to work on my very own case and establish a custody and visitation plan for my daughter’s dad and I. I graduated from the Paralegal program in 1996. I then earned my associates degree in legal administration 1999.
 
I have worked for various attorneys and decided to branch off on my own as a Legal Document Service. During the course of time, I eventually earned my Bachelor’s degree from Fresno Pacific University in 2016.
 
Becoming a self-employed Legal Document Assistant was the best decision which helped me as a single parent and help others who could not afford to pay high costs in attorney fees.
 
Since 2016, I have been providing a low-cost assistance for those who cannot afford high legal fees and are able to represent themselves and file their own documents. I have also extensive network to refer clients to Law Firms, Insurance Agents, Commercial and Real Estate as needed and requested.
