Divorce is never easy. However, it was very straightforward, quick-responses for a complex divorce. I did hire an attorney but saved a ton of money by using them only for a consult and having Ian do the preparations. All around great experience.

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.

Ian made my Legal Separation a walk in the park. He has taken care of corporate matters for my company as well. California Document Preparers also has prepared my Living Trust and now is amending the Deed of Trust on a property I just purchased. For legal matters, I turn first to CDP.

We just received our official recorded documents from the County Recorder's office. This service organization provides the expertise, notary and even took our signed documents to the recorder's office and paid the recording fee. It was included as part of the fixed price fee which I found to be totally reasonable. I rarely give a five-star review, but this place has been just amazing. I will utilize their services again if needed in the future. Kudos to Barbara!

They got the job done, giving me good advice and all of the forms I needed to execute a quitclaim deed without any tax penalty. Their advice was better than that of a title company or my mortgage broker—all for about $180. Great value.
