Professional Services With A Personal Touch
A “paralegal” is defined by the State Bar of Arizona as a person with legal knowledge, training and experience, who works “under” the supervision of an attorney. Many people do not understand this, including some paralegals. However, “paralegal” is the most common term used for an Arizona Certified Legal Document Preparer (“AZCLDP”). An AZCLDP is certified by the Arizona Supreme Court to provide services to the public “without” the supervision of an attorney. Without this certification, a paralegal preparing documents for an individual or a company is engaging in the unauthorized practice of law. Currently, only California and Arizona have programs that certify and monitor the people and companies preparing legal documents for the sole purpose of protecting the public.
Our Certified Legal Document Preparers have been trained as paralegals by attorneys and still network with attorneys. Learn more about the staff at Arizona Legal Document Services, L.L.C.
