Prepared Legal Corp.
Legal Document Assistant (LDA) do not operate any differently than a Paralegal working under the supervision of an Attorney. Both can only render legal services at the specific direction of either the attorney or clients for the LDAs.
Operating an LDA Business is invaluable because of the first-hand experience and practical training on the front lines of pro se litigation. Just like attorneys LDAs too learn through file rejections and amended pleadings. Heck, judges and clerks review our work on a daily basis.
Paralegal and LDA practice practical application of the law and both have a front row seat to the theoretical application of the law whether our clients be attorneys or in pro se litigants.
It may not be common knowledge, but many of my regular clients are in fact attorneys/law firms who have one off family law cases and or who have overflow cases. This is the case for many of my LDA peers. Attorneys who see LDAs as competitors rather than potential business partners shut down revenue opportunities to render competent and affordable legal services.
