SHOULD I USE A LEGAL DOCUMENT ASSISTANT (LDA)?
An LDA, an experienced professional, is authorized to prepare complete legal documents at the direction of the client. An LDA assists the DIY client to handle their legal matters without the cost of an attorney. An LDA helps clients avoid simple mistakes and ensures all critical details on complex legal forms are correctly answered and complete. Rather than the stress of figuring it out yourself and potentially making mistakes that can cost time and money, you can use an LDA.
IS THERE AN ADVANTAGE TO USING AN LDA?
LDA's provide a low cost alternative to paying an attorney for legal document preparation. Legal forms can be complex and overwhelming. An LDA has the experience to keep you from making easy mistakes that will cost you time and money.
DO I NEED AN LDA?
No. An LDA cannot give you legal advice, but can ensure that the legal document preparation and filings are correct and ready for court submission, freeing you from worry and concern you may have missed something important
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN LDA AND A PARALEGAL?
A paralegal is someone who works under the direct supervision of an attorney and may not provide work to the general public. A Legal Document Assistant (LDA) is authorized under California Law to the general public. They must be registered and bonded in the County in which they offer services.
