A big thank you to Barbara and Bill for helping me get through this Probate process so smoothly. I started this action trying to save a house from the County Assessor and ended up saving my sister as well. It has been a rough process for me and my family, but I suppose these issues always are. Keep up the good work!
I took my parents to California Document Preparers for a Will, Trust, Health Directive and Power of Attorney.

I didn't know document preparers existed. Wow. I spent $4000 after my mom died to do the same thing they did for $400ish. What I had to do was straightforward, and Ian, the owner, was great about not giving advice, but explaining what needed to be done.
We had our Living Trust amended twice and Brooke, at California Document Preparers, explained everything clearly and thoroughly.

Its amazing what this outfit is capable of performing. It's equally amazing how capable they are of sizing up a situation and foreseeing the correct legal course to take and it's outcome. They helped be with inheritance and title change issues that I was completely lost with. Ian broke the entire ordeal of Probate down to easy to swallow talk and simple sign here, initial here action. They made sure to keep me in the loop during the process, and were able and willing to answer every question and concern I had along the way. I have and will recommend California Document Preparers for all non-contentious legal needs to all.

I am a divorce mediator in the East Bay. I continually send my clients with completed memoranda of understanding to Ian Duncan's office at California Document Preparers for the final processing. His team is precise and compassionate. Five stars. Dr. R. Doerr
I needed to change the ownership of our San Francisco property. California Documents was very easy to deal with and lightening fast. Easy, safe walk from BART. We were a half an hour early but they took us in right away and notarized the information. I was so glad they were recommended to me.
I came in expecting to have an appointment later in the week and I was helped right away. This office completed all paperwork by late afternoon. It was great to get this all taken care of in one day at a very reasonable price. I recommend California Document Preparers highly!
Super nice people. Made my experience of going through a bunch of legal paperwork seamless. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs support with legal documents, as something that they really just want to get through and be over with.
