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.
We just completed and received documentation involving estates, properties and other issues. Process was lengthy and rather complex. To their credit Cory and Ian were very helpful and extremely professional. Some alterations in the final product were dealt with today in a cordial and understanding way. We can, without a doubt, certainly recommend California Document Preparers!
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!
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 came in expecting to have an appointment later in the week and I was helped right away. Guideway completed all my paperwork by late afternoon. It was great to get this all taken care of in one day at a very reasonable price! I highly recommend them!"
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!
"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."
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.
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!
California Document Preparers Oakland is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. The fee was fair--much lower than that of an attorney. I highly recommend them.
"I worked with Ian Duncan of Guideway to assist me in my divorce proceeding. I was impressed by all of the staff's professionalism, efficiency, kindness and patience in this process. They made what could have been an unpleasant divorce experience actually quite manageable."
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.
We had our Living Trust amended twice and Brooke, at California Document Preparers, explained everything clearly and thoroughly.
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!
Valerie Jackson, at California Document Preparers, thank you for all of your help. You made life a little easier. Your customer service skills are out of this world. Wish more people could be like you. I will be recommending you to other people.
California Document Preparers provides a great alternative for those going through a divorce who don't want to/can't spend the money on an attorney. The pricing is really fair. We were given an estimated timeline for completion and they met it. They expedited the filing of our documents to help us meet our deadline. We were impressed with CDP’s customer service and have referred friends and colleagues to them.
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.
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!
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 needed a Living Trust quickly due to a family emergency, and the service provided by California Document Preparers was amazing. They answered all my questions, responded in a timely manner, were courteous and respectful. The process was seamless. I highly recommended CDP.

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.
California Document Preparers is open on Saturdays, and it was the only place that we could find on the weekend to notarize our documents. It was quite busy but they were efficient and thorough. Great friendly service.
What outstanding service! Ian was responsive, professional and easy to work with. Why pay megabucks to a lawyer when California Document Preparers can do this for significantly less with great customer service and professionalism. Highly recommended!
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 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."
I filed the first few court documents for my divorce on my own and quickly discovered I was in over my head. I contacted Ian at California Document Preparers, and he helped us understand and complete each step. I am grateful to him for making it so easy for us!
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.
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.
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.
Its amazing what this outfit is capable of performing.I have and will recommend California Document Preparers for all noncontentious legal needs to all.

I have used California Document Preparers to help prepare my personal and business legal documents. They are patient and trustworthy with confidential issues. Their fees are much lower than those of an attorney. They are available in person or by phone to assist. I highly recommend them to everyone I know.
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!
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.
Great quick trip to get some documents notarized. I had called the day before and scheduled an appointment. Corey was super patient and professional. We really appreciate his customer service. He even re-printed my documents when I signed them wrong! Very reasonable price.
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!
Excellent attention to detail, organization and follow-up. (I used California Document Preparers to change the title on a property.)
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.
I discovered this wonderful service through Yelp. I returned today and found the same courteous, intelligent, and thorough assistance. My Living Trust was professionally, efficiently and carefully updated. A great savings over a lawyer's fees. Thanks California Document Preparers.
I am a divorce mediator in the East Bay. I continually send my clients with completed memoranda of understanding to Ian Duncan's office at California Document Preparers for the final processing. His team is precise and compassionate. Five stars. Dr. R. Doerr
Thanks to Susan in California Document Preparers' Walnut Creek office for your prompt and affordable service. Attorneys charge a lot more for even a straightforward living trust and will. I now have all the documents I need at an affordable price. I will use your company again for legal document needs.
"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."
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!
I have been using California Document Preparers for several years now and appreciate the relationship I have developed with them. They are so generous with their knowledge and have become my go-to source of information when I have questions about payroll, paying state taxes, setting up my DBA, and more. They’re a wonderful business resource.
Everyone at California Document Prepares in Walnut Creek was extremely helpful and professional. Not pushy, but willing to listen to questions and concerns. I would certainly recommend their services.
Ian, Valerie and the rest of the team at California Document Preparers were so helpful and patient with me and my former wife. I filled out all the documents and within months, our Divorce was complete. My ex gives them a 5-star rating too.
My experience with California Document Preparers was great. Val and Tom guided me through the process of creating a Living Trust and removing my husband from the deed to our house. They explained everything thoroughly. I recommend California Document Preparers to friends and colleagues.
We had our Living Trust updated at California Document Preparers. We met with Bill, and when we returned with our paperwork we met with Brook. When we went for the final signing, Susan met with us. It was just such a great interaction with each person we came in contact with.
