LEGAL DOCUMENT ASSISTANTS - LDA
Who are Legal Document Assistants? (LDA)
Legal Document Assistants were once commonly known as Independent Paralegals. However, as of January 1st, 2000, only those Paralegals working directly for attorneys may now be referred to as Paralegals. Those formerly known as Independent Paralegals are now officially known as Legal Document Assistants (LDAs).
A NEW Profession in California For the first time, a new California law known as SB1418 authorizes non-lawyers to prepare legal documents for people doing their own legal tasks. Effective January 1, 2000, these non-lawyers, called Legal Document Assistants, may:
Distribute to their customers legal materials that have been published or approved by a lawyer
Prepare the customers’ legal documents under the direction of their customers
File the customers’ legal documents in the appropriate courts
LDAs are often trained in many areas and frequently specialize in multiple fields.
LDAs often have the same educational background as a paralegal and are REQUIRED by law to be registered and bonded in the county in which they have their principal place of business.
A Legal Document Assistant is NOT a Lawyer.
By law, they cannot give you legal advice or represent you in the courts in any matter.
If you need to consult with an attorney, your LDA will be able to provide you with a referral.
To qualify as a Legal Document Assistant, a person must:
Register in the County in which they work
Post a $25,000 Bond
Establish that he or she has a minimum level of experience and/or education
Every Legal Document Assistant is required to use a Contract. The Contract will provide appropriate notice to the Legal Document Assistant’s customers regarding the scope of the customers’ rights and the Legal Document Assistant’s duties. This Bill was passed for your protection.
