What is a Legal Document Assistant?

Legal Document Assistants were formerly known as Paralegals, or Independent Paralegals. As of January 2000, Independent Paralegals had a Name Change to Legal Document Assistant requiring that we be registered with the county where our primary office is located, carry a bond of at least $25,000, as well as meet requirements for educational and/or practical experience all for the protection of you, the client. We cannot give you legal advice nor inform you of your legal rights.

What Can a Legal Document Assistant Do For Me?

An LDA is an experienced professional who is authorized to prepare legal documents for a client, but only at the direction of the client. In other words, an LDA is there to assist the “self-help” client handle their own legal matters without the cost of an attorney. Since even the best legal, self-help books can be confusing and overwhelming, your LDA can provide invaluable assistance with routine legal tasks, such as typing and filing the paperwork for uncontested divorces, bankruptcies, wills, and many other types of documents. Again, because an LDA is forbidden to practice law of any sort, they cannot make suggestions as to what the client needs done for a particular matter, or what forms that the client must file with the state or the other party to the action.

A Legal Document Assistant is an invaluable resource for your legal matter. Many, if not all, legal forms are very confusing; incorrectly filled out forms will delay your case, possibly for a long time. An experienced LDA can help you avoid the pitfalls and also make sure every important detail on a form is accounted for. This alone makes them the best choice for your self-help legal endeavors.
