Once again, this Orange County Court proves its advocacy of the self-represented litigant with the offering of educational seminars designed specifically for document preparers. We can only hope that other county courts will soon follow the OC example. As LDAs we have an obligation to our people to safeguard their personal information and documents. This seminar should be a must for every LDA.
