Selecting a Good Process Server

Orange County Professional Servers

The constitution requires under “due process of law” that a person be notified of a legal proceeding before that proceeding can take away his “life, liberty, or property”. To this end, state legislation requires that specific legal documents (i.e. subpoenas, summonses, three day notices, etc.) be “served” upon a person to guarantee an opportunity that they are heard in court.

California law does not require a specific person to “serve” legal documents, only that the person is not a party to the action, and is at least 18 years of age. However, there is a high demand for professional and experienced “process servers”. Inexperienced 3rd party individuals are not as likely to be successful executing difficult serves or responsibly filing an affidavit of service. Attorneys need professional process servers whom they can rely on to carry out their client’s rights and interests.
