About Us

Southwest Legal Document Services LLC dba Southwest Wills & Trusts is an Arizona Certified Legal Document Preparation (AZCLDP) company with over 20 years of Arizona legal services experience at work for you.  Our creation, certification, oversight and authority come from the Arizona Supreme Court and our standards of conduct, professionalism and continuing education are comparable to those of attorneys.

Many routine legal matters require knowledge of legal rights, rules, laws and available options, and can be procedurally complex, but do not require specific legal advice.  At Southwest Legal Document Services our mission is to provide general and factual legal information to the public pertaining to legal rights, procedures and options available in uncontested legal proceedings so they can make informed decisions regarding their legal services needs, to make legal documents available to those representing themselves in legal matters, and to navigate the legal system for them.

What does this mean for you?  Professional, cost effective access to legal services.

An avid proponent of education, Ranae serves as adjunct faculty for Pima Community College where she teaches Wills, Trusts and Estate Administration for the Paralegal Studies degree program; is an active member of the Marana Chamber of Commerce Education Committee; and speaks to community groups on the topics of Estate Planning, Probate and Estate Administration.
