Legal Document Preparation

I contacted Cheryl at 1st Choice Legal Assistance about a month ago, I had been going thru some very serious threating and harassment with some family members. Cheryl was very professional and talked me thru this entire process, from start to finish., she filed several restraining orders for me and she did an outstanding and professional job, I want to thank her so much for helping me to prepare the necessary documents and all the details that I needed to do, Cheryl I can't thank you enough you were a true blessing in every since of the word. If it had not been for Cheryl I did not know what I was going to do. That weight that I had been carrying for so long has know been lifted, thanks to Cheryl. She was able to get the necessary restraining orders done and filed with the courts quickly. I normally don't do reviews but felt the need to do so in this case. Please do not hesitate to contact her! Thanks Cheryl you are the best! I give you a 5 Star rating and will definitely refer and use you again.

I submitted an online request for help with an emergency restraining order and guardianship for my grandson at 6:30 am today. I was called by Cheryl at 10:15 am and was done processing an emergency restraining order at 12:30 pm. The fee was reasonable. I highly recommend 1st choice legal assistance to all my family and friends. I give Cheryl 5 stars.

I felt rushed and I didn’t understand why a fee would change in a 2 week period while I was still deciding on certain circumstances surrounding my case. I never heard that before. I felt like it was more of a sales call. She seemed to stumble upon knowledge about certain questions I had. And I never heard of a paralegal not working under an Attorney.

Background Check

Cheryl Garey


  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I always ask my customers to contact me via telephone to provide a more accurate quote so the client is not over charged for services they do not need.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I reach out to the client requesting them to contact me so I can verify the exact services they need. Once we determine if I can provide the services they need, we move forward with scheduling an appointment. From there, we execute a fee agreement, start the process of services and I stay in contact with them from start to finish.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an Associates of Science in Legal Assisting/Paralegal Studies and have been in the legal field working with attorneys for over 20 years.
