Certified Process Servers – An Analysis

Included below is a link to an analysis prepared by past president Tamaroff that was provided to the attendees at the annual conference. It explains why certified process servers may serve without appointment by the court or permission of the sheriff those papers filed in one county but which are being served in another county. There are other attorneys who agree with this analysis, and attendees at the conference plan to seek permission from clients to serve such documents as certified process servers. Also included is a notice that can be adapted for your company and which can be included with your invoices to clients. Should you have any questions, please e-mail them directly to past president Tamaroff at ptamaroff@aps-ga.net.
