Notary Public Services

Issues big or small, we’ve got you covered


Certain types of documents require notarization for them to take effect. The purpose of this is to both ensure proper execution and to prevent fraudulent activities. A Notary Public’s job is to witness the signing of important documents and verify the identity of the signers. They must follow a certain order or procedures and use their judgement on both the willingness of the signers and their awareness of the contents in the documents or transaction being notarized. 

The benefit of using a lawyer who has been commissioned as a notary rather than a standard notary is, they are able to provide you with legal advice about the documents drafted. A standard notary is not legally allowed to give advice, but simply must make sure everyone understands the documentation. This is often necessary when dealing with business documents, drafting a will, or officializing other complex legal documents. It is important for these types of documents to be legally correct and be able to stand up in court; therefore, utilizing legal services for notarization is highly recommended.
