What is a Legal Document Assistant (LDA)?
Formerly known as Independent Paralegals, Legal Document Assistants are non-attorneys authorized to assist Self-Help (Pro Per) litigants with the completion of legal documentation. LDAs cannot represent anyone in court, we cannot provide advice about legal rights or the law, nor can LDAs select legal forms. Fortunately, Court websites have document packets with most commonly used legal documents free to download. Only an attorney can provide legal advise tailored for your specific case.
What Are Self-Help Services?
Kinds of services that a Legal Document Assistant can perform for you:
I can perform the following self-help services for you in connection with a legal matter in which you are representing yourself:
I can type or otherwise complete, as you specifically direct, legal documents that you have selected. I can provide you general published factual legal information that has been written or approved by an attorney, to help you represent yourself. I can provide you published legal documents. I can file and serve legal forms and documents as you specifically direct.
These are the only kinds of services that I can perform for you. I cannot provide you any service if you need additional services. If you need additional services, then you require the services of an attorney.
Kinds of services that I cannot perform for you:
I cannot provide you any self-help service unless you are representing yourself in a legal matter and the self-help service relates to that legal matter.
I cannot engage in the practice of law. This means that I cannot give you any kind of advice, explanation, opinion or recommendation about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, strategies or options that you may have. I cannot give you any advice, explanation, opinion or recommendation regarding selection of forms.
