There’s an Alternative to High Attorney Fees

by Patricia Glover, Advanced Certified Paralegal, Notary Signing Agent, Certified Legal Document Preparer

In 2003, the Arizona Supreme Court initiated the Legal Document Preparer program, which allows non-attorneys to prepare legal documents without the supervision of attorneys. This licensure allows qualified candidates to significantly reduce costs and pass those savings onto clients

A recent study found that 75% of all Arizona court cases involve at least one self-represented person, but the legal system can be overwhelming and confusing. Licensed LDPs can help you navigate the court system, prepare a probate-avoidance (asset protection) estate plan, or start a new business at a lower cost than hiring an attorney.
