What is a Legal Document Assistant?

A legal document assistant is a self-employed, non-attorney who is licensed and bonded in the County where they do business and who assists the public in the preparation of legal documents. Prior to 2001, legal document assistants in California were referred to as "Independent Paralegals". Today, legal document assistants must have a combination of education and experience to qualify for registration under Business and Professions Code section 6400. Legal document assistants are prohibited by law from giving legal advice, but can refer the public to published materials and information.
