I was pleasantly surprised and put at ease by the way Lynné Jenkins, at California Document Preparers, simplified things in order for me to get the ball rolling with my living trust. She was there for me from the start to finish. Skilled and knowledgeable. I highly recommend CDP.
We just completed and received documentation involving estates. Process was lengthy and rather complex. Cory and Ian at California Document Preparers were very helpful and extremely professional. We can, without a doubt, recommend California Document Preparers!
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.
What a different experience dealing with California Document Preparers--and Caitlyn in particular! She is smart, knows what she is doing and explained concepts so I understood my options. My divorce is over and the paperwork is filed. I am very grateful.
I have done multiple Deed Transfers with California Document Preparers' Dublin branch. Tom is very helpful and reliable. I have used their services for the past two years and I will continue to work with them.
One of the best companies I've ever encountered. EVERYONE at the California Document Preparers office is friendly and helpful. Communication is great, answered every phone call and question. Give them a call and they will save you thousands of dollars. THANK YOU!
I took my parents to California Document Preparers for a Will, Trust, Health Directive and Power of Attorney.

I can't say enough good things about the California Document Preparers, who provided peace of mind for me and my parents.
I discovered California Document Preparers, a wonderful service, through Yelp a few years back. I returned today and found the same courteous, intelligent, and thorough help and advice. My trust was professionally, efficiently, and carefully updated due to my request for changes.
Divorce is never easy. However, it was very straightforward, quick-responses for a complex divorce. I did hire an attorney but saved a ton of money by using them only for a consult and having Ian do the preparations. All around great experience.
Valerie, Ian and the rest of the staff are all a class actI I recommend California Document Preparers to everyone who needs this type of legal document service. Quick, efficient and reasonably priced.

Corey was so patient and understanding as he explained everything to me. I had 2 appointments and got everything done. I have the documents sent to my family, my healthcare provider and my original copies that CDP placed in a neat, tabbed binder for my easy reference. Fantastic service!
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.
Ian, at California Document Preparers, made my Divorce as painless as it can get. Helpful, available and knowledgeable throughout the process. He was patient and worked according to my timeline. If yours is an uncontested Divorce, CDP provides a wonderful service at a fair price.
"We have previously used Guideway for their notary services and just used them to do our Living Trust. Corey Priest exceeded our expectations. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and patiently walked us through what everything meant."
California Document Preparers Oakland is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. The fee was fair--much lower than that of an attorney. I highly recommend them.
Super nice people. Made my experience of going through a bunch of legal paperwork seamless. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs support with legal documents, as something that they really just want to get through and be over with.
California Document Preparers is professional, courteous, and extremely responsive. They were always there to answer questions, and I actually felt like I'd engaged in a business partnership. While I'm certain the entire staff is fantastic, Ian raised the bar on professional services.
California Document Preparers’ Dublin office is very professional, and I highly recommend Val, Tom and Sue. I created a Living Trust, which includes a Power of Attorney and Advanced Healthcare Directive. Protect your estate from Probate and make life easy for your heirs. No more procrastination!
Got a Deed transfer done at California Document Preparers, in and out quickly. Good service and good value. Only drawback is the hard to find parking around that section of the Lake, but you can park at WholeFood, grab a coffee there then journey up to the office to get your paperwork done.
Super helpful team at California Document Preparers. I called for information, was thinking of using them to prepare/serve dissolution documents. They were extremely patient and open. I filled out my own papers, but I would use them had I not been so far along already in the process.
Cannot say enough about the excellent service we received. Highly recommend them for anything regarding a Deed. Courteous, a high level of customer service and follow-through.
Very helpful people at California Document Preparers. Gave me good advice even though I was not initially going to use them. I ended up using them!
I have now worked with three different people at this office and found each of them to be extremely helpful and accommodating. They have saved me thousands of dollars because I did not have to use an attorney for any of the above mentioned legal documents.
I have used California Document Preparers to help prepare my personal and business legal documents. They are patient and trustworthy with confidential issues.

Excellent attention to detail, organization and follow-up. (I used California Document Preparers to change the title on a property.)
Caitlyn at California Document Preparers was very helpful and very knowledgeable. She gave me a timeline and was very easy to work with. She made our experience seamless and I look forward to working with her again for all of our document needs.

I made an appointment the day before for a simple notary at California Document Preparers. Valerie was great- she was sweet and professional and I was in and out in no time! Would definitely come back and refer these guys!
Its amazing what this outfit is capable of performing.I have and will recommend California Document Preparers for all noncontentious legal needs to all.
"We just received our official recorded documents from the County Recorder's office. Guideway provided the expertise, notary, and even took our signed documents and recording fee to the recorder's office. I rarely give a five-star review, but this place has been just amazing."
Most of my dealings at California Document Preparers were with Ian, and a few with Cory. They both are very knowledgeable and stepped us through the difficult process of probate for my mother in law.
Awesome service at affordable price. A lawyer tried to mediate my divorce; they charged me for every email and call, and it cost me thousands of dollars. Ian handled my paperwork, answered all my inquiries, questions and concerns with a positive, caring attitude.
My experience with California Document Preparers was outstanding. I worked through a complicated divorce with Ian. He was incredibly knowledgeable and made a difficult process look easy. Solid gold experience. Wish I could give them 6 stars.
I used California Document Preparers for my Living Trust and estate plan and, most recently, for my business incorporation. Ian, especially, is incredibly knowledgeable and willing to help me with intimidating paperwork--even long after their services have been paid for!
A big thank you to Barbara and Bill for helping me get through this Probate process so smoothly. I started this action trying to save a house from the County Assessor and ended up saving my sister as well. It has been a rough process for me and my family, but I suppose these issues always are. Keep up the good work!
Absolutely love these people! I needed help finishing my Divorce. California Document Preparers moved heaven and earth to help me. It feels like I have family in my corner!
They got the job done, giving me good advice and all of the forms I needed to execute a quitclaim deed without any tax penalty. Their advice was better than that of a title company or my mortgage broker—all for about $180. Great value.
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.
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.
I needed to change the ownership of our San Francisco property. California Documents was very easy to deal with and lightening fast. Easy, safe walk from BART. We were a half an hour early but they took us in right away and notarized the information. I was so glad they were recommended to me.
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!
Going into divorce was emotionally draining. I looked for help and found California Document Preparers, who made me feel comfortable as they outlined the process for me. The CDP team filed the documents as quickly as possible, and they kept me informed throughout the process. They were personable and kind, sensitive to my needs, helping me get my life back on track. A well-deserved thumbs up for California Document Preparers!
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!
"I would like to thank Guideway for helping my family deal with issues surrounding my parents' estate. I could have never done it without their help. I was met with the kindness and courtesy. Brook Thurston was wonderful and I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone in need of legal documentation help."
I needed to buy out my partner on a property. We hired lawyers, which started to look very expensive. Ian, at California Document Preparers explained this in simple terms and completed the transaction for us. I can’t recommend these guys highly enough
I’m thankful I found California Document Preparers to do my Living Trust. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They answered all my questions and the fees are very reasonable. I recommend California Document Preparers to friends and co-workers who all have the same feedback: “What great service!”
Ian at California Document Preparers helped me with a Quit Claim Deed—great service and advice at just $180. Ian kept the process moving forward. He forwarded the completed and filed document to me, my wife and the credit union. Thanks, Ian. Great service!
