Process Service | Certified Videographer | Serving Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, and Nationwide
CPS Companies was formed over 30 years ago to support my efforts to finish my graduate work at the Doctoral level in Marriage and Family Therapy. I had worked in the public sector for a number of years, and decided to open my own practice. I went back to school and worked as a process server on the side. At the end of my class work, I decided that I liked the business that I had built even more than practicing counseling. I decided to give up the idea of a private practice and immersed myself in the business of serving process.
In the course of the first few years, I learned that there were more areas that I could become proficient in and thus make my services more valuable to the litigation attorney. I quickly learned how to retrieve documents from the courts as well as the non-party witnesses that I was serving. I became a notary, which allowed me to conduct the depositions by written questions. I also took the course work required to become a Certified Legal Video Specialist, so I am qualified to take depositions on video for clients.
Because of the unique laws and rules that govern service of process in Texas, I have spent a great deal of time learning and becoming proficient with the rules of civil procedure, as well as the federal rules. I am very familiar with both the documents that I serve and the ones I prepare for you. As the Texas Process Servers Association grew, I got involved in teaching other process servers in the rules and laws that impinge on our industry. I have served in several offices over the years in this association. I have assisted the association in creating a test to certify process servers here in Texas. That way, all people needing process services are assured they are hiring quality servers who know the business of serving process.
