Need to mail something to us?   Prepare Papers, 2212 North Marks Ave. Ste. 108, Fresno, CA 93722

We serve documents in person in Fresno and surrounding areas.  We can help you with your papers over the phone, via text, through e-mail, through video chat, or through just about any communication system you like.  We accept most forms of payment, and we are able to accept electronic signatures for most documents.

Not every paralegal can prepare every type of document, so we have multiple paralegals.  Some specialize in family law pleadings, some specialize in evictions, some specialize in criminal law pleadings, and some specialize in civil pleadings.  If we can’t help with the type of pleadings you need, we will try to send you to someone who can.  In addition, we do legal research and technical analysis of evidence.  If it relates to the legal field, we can help on most types of cases, but by law, some of our services are only provided to attorneys.

However, not everyone should hire us.  We do a lot, but there are some matters that we don’t work on, and some matters that are better handled by others.  To see a list of matters better handled by others, click here.

We are headquartered in Fresno, but we prepare papers for courts in Clovis, Fowler, Kingsburg, Sanger, San Joaquin, Riverdale, and nearby areas.  We also conduct legal research for attorneys in any jurisdictions throughout California. If you are outside our normal travel range and need in-person service, we will try to refer you to a more appropriate paralegal service.
