WHAT IS A LEGAL DOCUMENT ASSISTANT?(LDA)

 

Premier Legal Solutions is Licensed & Bonded - Orange County LDA #434

 

A little known consumer protection law went into effect on January 1, 2000 known as California Business and Professions Code Section 6400, et seq. This law affects all persons (formerly called paralegals) in the State of California who provide self-help services to the public. This new law defines a Legal Document Assistant as someone who: "... provides, or assists in providing, or offers to provide, or offers to assist in providing, for compensation, any self-help service to a 

member of the public who is representing himself or herself in a legal matter or holds himself or herself out as someone who offers that service or has that authority." A Legal Document Assistant must be registered and bonded.
 
When applying to the County to become registered he or she must prove that they meet the minimum education and/or experience qualifications. Upon satisfactory proof as set forth in B & P Code 6400 and upon filing of a bond the Legal Document Assistant will receive an Identification Card issued by the County where they provide their services. The law also requires a Legal Document Assistant to use a contract that is prepared by the Department of Consumer Affairs for Legal Document Assistant Services. When choosing a Legal Document Assistant be sure to:
 
1. Ask to see their County Registration I.D. Card.
 
2. Get a written contract.
 
3. Ask for the office procedure regarding refunds.
 
4. Look for an established business.
