One of the most frustrating things about my business is my supposed competitors. The majority of paralegal companies are not licensed and this industry is not regulated. Most people don’t know that you have to be a Legal Document Assistant in California to provide legal services. This takes a college degree, experience working with the court’s and training under an attorney.
We have this legal document assistant certification.
What is frustrating is that these unlicensed paralegal companies only marketing tool is to offer cheap discounted prices. Then what they do is forge fee waiver court forms so that the money that is supposed to be paid to the court in filing fees is pocketed by the company.
