    Quoted me a price, then said it would be a different price after we hired him. He was nice enough to honor the first price quoted, but never received the proof of services for him, and doesn't even reply to my emails. Got the job done, but communication and customer service needs work.

    We've used San Francisco Process Servers several times over the years and they have never failed to deliver. Charles always makes what can be a tedious process easy, he's a true professional. The documents never fail to arrive in quick time and considering the price he charges to carry out the work, you get great value for money. We've used several companies in the past, but since meeting Charles we haven't had the need to contact anyone else - and nor would we want to!

    I used TARGET LEGAL SUPPORT SERVICES to serve a moving company and file all the paperwork needed for small claims court. They served them quickly and all I had to do was go to court with the evidence. I had never sued anyone before and they helped me every step of the way. I call for advice, they help out. I paid them a very reasonable amount and they took care of everything and told me what i needed to do and helped every step along the way. That's a lot of help for the money. By the way, i won my case and will be using them again if the person I sued doesn't pay the judgement to me. Nice work guys.

    My busy law firm has used Chuck's services for years. He's been an outstanding process server and courier/court runner/filer. He knows the ins and outs of the inner workings at the clerks' offices and knows what it takes to get your documents filed. He has never ever ever ever dropped the ball. If he says he's going to do it, he's going to do it. His rates are beyond reasonable. Hire Target Legal Support Services. You won't regret it.

    THANK YOU Target Legal Support Services!!! I had never gone through the process of serving an individual, so naturally I had questions from the get-go. Charles at TLSS not only listened to the details of the case, but answered any/all questions and/ or concerns that I had. TLSS made this process as seamless as possible! They are wonderful at what they do and it shows! Thank you again!!!

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
During my time as a process server I had two people take swing at me. I'd like to say that I busted out some Steven Segal moves and stuffed the papers up their ass, but that would be a lie. All I really did was ducked, pushed them on the hips (you move the center of gravity and you move the whole person), tossed the papers in their face and got out of there. You may think I'm a coward for not fighting, but I'm a lousy boxer so I handled it my way. The most common reaction I got when I just handed over a fresh steaming pile of legal mumbo-jumbo was anger. This is understandable, since a lot of people get pretty upset over money. Someone threatening to forcibly empty their bank account? Not too many people look forward to this. For the most part the angry people just want to vent. They know I'm just the messenger, but they need to complain to someone and I'm right there. I didn't mind this too much --- just let them get it off their chest before moving on. Then there are people who think I'm the one suing them. I would try to explain that papers have to be served by an uninterested third party, and that I worked for a company who served papers and not a legal firm, but they don't listen. "What's your problem, trying to garnish my paycheck? I have kids to feed and rent to pay!" "I'm not the one suing ---" "Cram it, ugly. You could take a three thousand dollar loss on these bills, but no, you have to steal my hard earned money!" "But I'm not involved in the case, I'm just the messeng ---" "This country would be better off without lawyers like you. What kind of a lawyer are you, anyway, wearing jeans and a Jethro Tull t-shirt? No wonder you're suing me, can't afford a decent suit." "But I'm not a lawyer!" Then they slam the door in your face. Most angry people just have one question for me. "Do you actually enjoy your job?" "Nope." Let's face it, this job is about delivering bad news to people all day. Maybe some people would like that, but not me. I prefer helping people, not ruining their day.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If the papers are not properly served, the courts cannot rule on a case because the people involved need to be made aware of the court proceedings. It’s part of the legal justice system in the US. If you haven’t been served papers, you don’t have to show up in court and the case may be thrown out. This is a law in the United States, that’s why there are process servers. San Francisco Process Servers are the ones who serve papers in the San Francisco area. They are hired by the courts, lawyers, and individuals to serve court papers to those who have cases in the court system.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Many process servers add a bunch of extra fees. We offer honest pricing for our services. NEED HELP SERVING THE OTHER PARTY? FINANCIAL ISSUES? NO PROBLEM! We are the best priced registered & bonded process server you’ll ever find! With FAST & PROFESSIONAL results we will get the job done RIGHT for you!
