Legal Document Preparation Services

Dingler Document Assistance offers an affordable and efficient solution for legal document preparation in Petaluma, CA.


If you are confident in your requirements and do not need legal advice, our services provide a cost-effective alternative to high attorney fees. We excel in providing the necessary legal document support, helping you save money while ensuring your paperwork is handled with professional care.


A Legal Document Assistant (LDA) is an experienced professional authorized under California law to assist with the preparation of legal documents. Unlike a paralegal, LDAs have their own bond and license, and therefore do not work under the supervision of an attorney.

A Legal Document Assistant (LDA) is a professional registered in California, skilled in preparing and completing legal documents. Also known as "document technicians," "independent paralegals," "legal document preparers," "online legal document providers," or "legal document clerks," LDAs are essential for individuals managing their own legal matters.

In Petaluma, a charming city in Sonoma County known for its historic downtown, local businesses, and vibrant community life, LDAs assist those representing themselves in legal issues by preparing and processing necessary documents. It’s important to note that LDAs are not attorneys; they cannot provide legal advice, discuss legal strategies, answer specific legal questions, select forms for consumers, or represent individuals in court.

Petaluma, with its unique blend of shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions, provides a supportive environment for professional services. Dingler Document Assistance offers a variety of self-help legal materials to help you navigate your legal needs independently. Our office is committed to ensuring you have the resources to make informed decisions while managing your legal documents.
