Client Testimonials
 
     
 

Dear Kathy:
I wanted to thank you for the great job you did in getting our person served. I've worked with process servers throughout California, but your speed, dedication and professionalism have set the new standard for me in judging all the others. If you recall, my boss - not an attorney - has been fighting a civil suit for two years now. The judge ordered one of the defendants dismissed, but we still needed a deposition from him. And we needed it done before going into mediation. We tried handing the subpoena to the guy's attorney, but he couldn't "guarantee" that he was accepting service. (His thought, apparently, was that if the guy was no longer a defendant, then he was no longer representing him.) We had only one day left to get the guy served, and all we knew was that maybe he lived in Placerville. In a panic, I Googled "Placerville process servers", found A Better Process, and gave you a call. And I'm sure glad I did. In one afternoon you verified that the guy did live in Placerville, staked out the address until he came home from work and nailed him before he even got to his front door. My boss got a call from the guy's attorney that evening at 7:00 p.m. Thanks again Kathy. I'm going to tell everyone who may need process work done in or around El Dorado County to use you guys exclusively.

 

 
Sincerely,
-David Anderson
