What is an LDA? 
California law authorizes non-attorneys called "Legal Document Assistants" to prepare forms for consumers who wish to handle their own business and legal affairs. LDAs are not lawyers and do not offer legal advice, discuss legal strategies, answer questions of a legal nature, select forms for the consumer, or appear in court on the consumer’s behalf.
What are some of the advantages of using an LDA?
Legal Document Assistants (LDAs) are trained professionals who assist self-represented persons prepare and file court documents. Like paralegals, LDAs have training and educational requirements. Unlike paralegals, who are prohibited by Business & Professions code section 6450 from assisting or contracting with consumers directly, an LDA works for the public. LDAs are required to be bonded and must register with the County Clerk in the counties in which they do business. LDAs are prohibited from giving legal advice, however they are expressly authorized by the Business and Professions Code 6400 et seq. to provide attorney-prepared or attorney-approved information to consumers so that consumers can make their own intelligent legal decisions.
