I continue to work with attorneys
both in their offices and as a virtual paralegal in the areas
of family law, criminal law, probate, and estate planning. I
am available to work on a freelance basis with special projects,
trial preparation, or any other assistance that might be needed.
Please call to discuss your needs. A resume and references
are available upon request.
I am a legal document preparer certified with the Arizona Supreme
Court and serve clients throughout Maricopa County in the following
Powers of Attorney
our Client Questionnaire for more information about what
services are available, fees, etc., and to get started.
I have worked in the legal industry for over 35 years working
closely with attorneys and clients in the areas of family law,
probate, estate planning, and criminal law. In 2003, I found
a need for those who couldnt afford an attorney or who
didnt feel like they needed one but wanted some assistance
and guidance, so became a certified legal document preparer
through the Arizona Supreme Court. In 2012, I received training
in mediation with an emphasis in family law from the University
of New Mexico School of Law. This training has been very beneficial
in helping my clients come to more amicable and satisfactory
how difficult legal challenges are and how intimidating the
legal process can be for those not familiar with the court system.
I am here to help. I can't make the legal challenges go away,
but I can make it easier to get through the legal process.

is the difference between a legal document preparer and a paralegal?
Arizona Code of Judicial Administration, Section 7-208, defines
a legal document preparer as an individual certified
"to prepare or provide legal documents, without the supervision
of an attorney, for an entity or a member of the public who
is engaging in self representation in any legal matter
legal document preparer (AZCLDP) is certified by the Arizona
Supreme Court to provide services to the public without the
supervision of an attorney.
paralegal is defined by the State Bar of Arizona as a
person with legal knowledge, training and experience, who works
under the supervision of an attorney.
