We are working on changing our Member Pages, Signup/Login Protocol etc. and will be making it automatic to signup as a Member as long as you deal with legal documents on behalf of clients and use some online element of data collection and some form of software automation. We will reserve the right to deny pages to anybody who is not within these parameters, but our guidelines are very inclusive of most professions with practitioners who feel they fit these guidelines. We want to help as many people as possible to gain more exposure to their businesses and to help more people access justice and also further develop their understandings of expert and automated systems.
As the Executive Director of NAOLDP, and with my experience as a California Small Claims & Enforcement of Judgment Legal Document Assistant and also a Judgment Investor, I am beginning to work on 2 different Citizens’ Initiatives:
- Adding Replevin as the 5th Equitable Remedy allowable in Small Claims in California. Replevin is a type of action that should be made more available for the regular person. This initiative will help expedite the time required for a Replevin Action, and it will also save the Court System. The proposed filing fee will however be $300. It is up in the air as to how many claims should be allowed. Allowing indefinite number of Replevin Actions would allow Small Used Car Dealers to utilize Small Claims almost exclusively and would help the Court financially.
- Allowing for up to a $30,000 Small Claims Complaint against an Advanced Fee Talent Agency which is not a lawful type of agency and against which 3x the amount collected from clients (victims) is allowable in sought after damages. The Client should be able to file in small claims if the initial amount they paid was under $10,000 even if they are suing for $30,000. This type of complaint should also cost $300 for revenue to help the State and the Court. This initiative will protect the people who come to California from all over the Country and Globe, seeking to make it in the entertainment industry.

Connect your apps and automate workflows Easy automation for busy people. Zapier moves info between your web apps automatically, so you can focus on your most important work. Trusted at companies large and small.
DocupletionForms.com is almost done connecting to Zapier.com which will allow users to route data from their contact forms into 1500+ different programs that are also connected with Zapier. Zapier allows users to trigger actions on connected platforms based on occurrences in the initiating platform. Check out Zapier and keep your eyes peeled for the connection announcement at DocupletionForms. The connection should be completed before the end of 2019!
Go to www.DocupletionForms.com and signup to use the form editor for free, login and then use the data-merge which currently consists of the form reader inside the program which you access by clicking the “Merge” tab at the top of the program window once you login.
First you have to use unlocked .pdf documents that you upload into the form reader that reads the submissions that people submit into the forms you create using the form editor.
What you do is choose a .pdf file, upload it into the form reader, click to map a field, select the pdf field, select the form value, click add, then select another pdf field, select another form value, click add, repeat until finished, click save, then click get pdf from the form submission to the left and then on the right click download pdf. It is not where it is going to be when we are done, but it is definitely useful as is.
You have to use unlocked .pdf documents in the form reader for the form reader to fill them out. You can obtain unlocked California Judicial Counsel Forms on https://ceb.com/judicial-council-forms/.
We are working on an automatic document selection and completion element of the form reader so that you can set the form editor submissions to automatically trigger the selection of a document or multiple documents based on the person submitting their information’s answer choices. The documents will then be filled in with the designated information. This will be completed when we are able to maintain a steady subscription of 300 people subscribing at $30/month and we are nearing our goal as of the writing of this post.
We are going to be building out more elements to the data-merge beyond just the form reader. We have a connection to Zapier right now and we give you direct API connections to programs like Clio and ZipForms.

Yes! You can advertise that you will be a public client’s Paralegal. You can advertise for to fine people who need lawyers. You do not have to have a Lawyer for whom you work to advertise. When you find a client you have to explain to them in written form that you will do their Paralegal work for them for the Attorney you will help them find, and you will work for the price you set, payable directly to you from the Client. Then you have to find an Attorney who wants your Client to be their Concurrent Client and will agree that they will only take the Client in under a contract that specifies that they will not charge money on top of the money you are charging for your Paralegal work, but will only charge money for the time they spend reviewing the work the Paralegal has done. This is how a basic Independent Paralegal / Contract Paralegal business works. There is so much misinformation out there on the internet that I have elected to simply describe the basic equation so that you can check my explanation by the ABA information that you find on the internet. – James F. Polk, NAOLDP Executive Director.
There are less than 5000 Counties in the USA! I am looking for a Legal Document Industry Related Professional in each county to join NAOLDP, to use my free software program DocupletionForms, and to be the central networking hub in that County who helps me recruit a Community Organization who can do our All In Service Network project for kids on juvenile probation and simultaneously help me reach out to the County Leadership so that we can coordinate the delivery of several free skate ramps as a part of the Skate Thru Life project. It really all perfectly weaves together. -James
