The business offers a lower cost legal alternative to the traditional attorney service. “We help consumers stay in control of their legal matters while saving them thousands of dollars”. The majority of the business focuses on divorce and other family law document preparation, uncontested probates and living trusts. Documents for adoptions, deeds, guardianships, conservatorships, and other court filings are also prepared. Most clients never see the inside of a courthouse. Independent paralegal services to attorneys are also offered.

Annette Gomez founded the business in 1996. Just Doc Prep is staffed with bonded and registered legal document assistants, a state law requirement. Clients are served at 4 office locations in the Inland Empire. The legal self help industry has evolved over the past 20 years and Just Doc Prep has kept up with all the changes. Just Doc Prep clients benefit from our expertise, professionalism and our use of technology. Some clients never leave their home while using our service and receive their documents quickly, sometimes the same day.

20 years in the industry, complying with the law, exceeding client expectations and giving back to the community is what sets Just Doc Prep apart from the other legal self-help services. “We help support Path of Life Ministries in Riverside, a non-profit organization serving the homeless and the poor by helping rescue, restore and rebuild lives”. We don’t just serve our clients by preparing their legal documents. Our opportunity to show some care for others going through a difficult time, whether they come into our office for legal documents or receive goods at the shelter, is really what it’s about.

Annette Gomez served as a board director for the California Association of Legal Document Assistants for 3 years, before being nominated for Vice President and also was a former advisory board member of Maric College’s legal assistant program.  Joel Smith, who helps to manage the business has an MBA from California Baptist University and Luisa Quintana holds a paralegal certificate from Chaffey College.
