851-Local City/County Agencies

LEGAL DOCUMENT ASSISTANT go back


A legal Document Assistant (LDA) is a person or business who, for compensation, provides self-help service to a member of the public who is representing himself or herself in a legal matter. "Self-help" service means typing, as directed by the client, legal documents the client has selected. It also means providing general published factual legal information that has been written or approved by an attorney, to help the client represent himself or herself in a legal matter; providing published legal documents; and filing and serving forms and documents as directed by the client.


These are the only services a Legal Document Assistant can perform.

LDAs must register with the county clerk in the county where they have their business and in any other county where they perform acts as an LDA. Registration forms can be obtained from the county clerk's office. Look in the White Pages under "County Government Offices" for the phone number and address.
