What is an LDA?
LDA stands for "Legal Document Assistant." A Legal Document Assistant (LDA) is an experienced professional who is authorized under California law to assist members of the public in preparing legal documents. However, an LDA is not an attorney, and cannot provide legal advice, or represent individuals in court.
LDA's have similar educational background as a paralegal, and are required by law to be registered and bonded in the county in which they have their principal place of business. (Business & Professions Code, Section 6400, et. seq.). I am registered and bonded in Kern County but am permitted under law to prepare legal documents for persons in any county in California.
What Can a Legal Document Assistant Do?
As an LDA, I can complete court forms for you at your direction, helping you to avoid pitfalls, and making sure that every important detail on a form is accounted for. As an LDA, I may also file the forms with the court, and serve them on the appropriate parties. In addition, I can prepare estate planning documents, deeds and property conveyance documents, as well as business and family law documents. See the list at the top of this page. As an LDA, I may also supply books and publications authored, written, or approved by attorneys, which you may use to help you with your matter. However, if your matter or a question about it exceeds the scope of an LDA's allowable services, I will refer you to an attorney.
