Chicago Title referred me to California Document Preparers and I couldn't happier with their service. Barbara was courteous, knowledgeable and accommodating. She even caught the need for a couple of other documents that demonstrated her expertise and efficiency. I'm referring my friends and colleagues to CDP. What a great service!
Excellent service, needed to do a probate and California Document Preparers made it so easy and fast. As I leave this office I'm heading to the bank. That's called headache-free and a very reasonable rate.
Thanks to Susan in California Document Preparers' Walnut Creek office for your prompt and affordable service. Attorneys charge a lot more for even a straightforward living trust and will. I now have all the documents I need at an affordable price. I will use your company again for legal document needs.
Brook Thurston, in California Document Preparers' Walnut Creek office, did an outstanding job of helping me obtain a Conservancy for my mother. Brook was professional, competent and personable, nudging me through the process while being sensitive to my role as full-time caregiver.
Been to California Document Preparers' Oakland office twice for notary services. It's easy for you to get here--a few blocks from Whole Foods. It's a great price with no hidden fees. Quick and easy and always professional, nice and comfortable office.
California Document Preparers Oakland is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. The fee was fair--much lower than that of an attorney. I highly recommend them.
Why did I put this off so long? So easy to set up my trust. Bill at California Document Preparers is great to work with and one third the price quoted by a lawyer. I feel confident these people know what they're doing!
Excellent attention to detail, organization and follow-up. (I used California Document Preparers to change the title on a property.)
My visits to sign papers were no more than 15 minutes and they were always prepared for me no matter if I had an appointment or just popped in. They explain everything in detail and in terms so you can understand what you are expected to do now and in the future. No guess work.
Great quick trip to get some documents notarized. I had called the day before and scheduled an appointment. Corey was super patient and professional. We really appreciate his customer service. He even re-printed my documents when I signed them wrong! Very reasonable price.

We had our Living Trust updated at California Document Preparers. We met with Bill, and when we returned with our paperwork we met with Brook. When we went for the final signing, Susan met with us. It was just such a great interaction with each person we came in contact with.
We just completed and received documentation involving estates, properties and other issues. Process was lengthy and rather complex. To their credit Cory and Ian were very helpful and extremely professional. Some alterations in the final product were dealt with today in a cordial and understanding way. We can, without a doubt, certainly recommend California Document Preparers!

A big thank you to Barbara and Bill for helping me get through this Probate process so smoothly.

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.
