FALDP Relaunches Courses; Adds Value to the Turn Key Bundle; and has a site-wide makeover
PR Log - Nov 06, 2012 - We, at The Florida Association of Legal Document Preparers (FALDP) are proud to announce exciting changes throughout our organization. We have refined and redesigned our courses in anticipation of our site-wide RELAUNCH. Many legal document preparers spend years in paralegal studies programs only to discover, upon graduation, that there are no paralegal jobs available. Or, even worse, many discover that the paralegal jobs that are available don't pay enough to justify their years of academic training. So, many would-be paralegals discover that its time to use their entrepreneurial skills and open up shop as legal document preparers. As small business owners they soon discover that they are their own favorite boss of all time. Once their legal document preparation business takes off -- they never look back.
We've added value to our popular Turn Key Business Bundle. Our start up package now includes even more tools to help you build a successful business. We have worked long and hard to develop a business start-up package for a legal document preparation business.

Due to the dismal economy many consumers cannot comfortably afford attorneys fees for routine legal matters. The services of legal document preparers are becoming increasingly more acceptable as our industry gains credibility. The services of legal document preparers are now considered a “perfectly acceptable legal solution” rather than just a good enough, or, better than nothing, legal solution.
Whether you are new to the legal document preparation industry or want to expand your services, the Florida Association of Legal Document Preparers is here to help. Registration for our online courses is open. Please visit: http://www.faldp.org/
