02 Nov Meet the California Document Preparers Team: John de Benedictis
For November, California Document Preparers is profiling John de Benedictis, in our Walnut Creek office. John was born in Philadelphia, grew up in Southern California, has lived in the East Bay for many years and now resides in Walnut Creek.
John plays golf, bocce ball and bridge, and like many of his Walnut Creek office colleagues, takes advantage of the area’s extensive bike trails. He also enjoys camping, wine tasting and playing games with his friends, children and grandchildren.
A background in retail and product development
John attended Pennsylvania’s Bucknell University, UC Santa Barbara and graduated from UCBerkeley and enjoyed a long, successful career in retail and product development that took him to Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia and South America. He has worked extensively for department and specialty stores as well as manufacturers to develop product lines that would perform well in retail environments.
California Document Preparers is a big change from a retail background
“For a week or a month we’ll be swamped, and the next is calm. This is new to me because most of my career was in retail, where business was much more predictable. What I find rewarding is that we can help people through difficult legal situations, some commonplace, some unique, and do it at an affordable price. We take the stress out of a lot of legal processes that could be confusing and time-consuming. We give our customers as much time and attention as necessary to help them understand their situations and the legal process so they can accomplish what they need to achieve.”
John enjoys the informal atmosphere at California Document Preparers and appreciates that customers come in to talk to a real person and get real answers. He is always ready to help and, if he is stumped, he’ll get the right person in the office to help you.
