Here’s what our past clients have to say!

I was referred to Peg from a life long trusted friend. She was everything he said, and more. She was kind, considerate, professional and thorough. It was a very trying time, but Peg explained in detail how the process worked, and kept me abreast of status and next step, leaving me no concern. I highly recommend Peg, definitely someone you can refer a friend or family to!

Peg was terrific and quick. I had been working with a lawyer who charged 3x as much and still hadn’t completed filing. I went to Peg, we met, she completed documents and filed! So easy, and everything taken care of quickly, easily and for one transparent price. I would highly recommend using Peg for your needs. She is experienced, knowledgeable, and fair.

​Working with Peg McLaughlin was the best thing about getting divorced. She is supportive and smart, realistic and efficient. I completely trust her; she is intelligent, direct, fair and kind. She is the right person to have on your side during difficult times in life. I so appreciate her kind way of taking charge and getting things done. She had my best interest at heart and saved me a lot of headaches and money. I highly recommend Peg McLaughlin – she made something difficult bearable and productive.

Mrs. Peg is a very kind, professional, and hard worker. She excels and strive for excellence within her craft of work and professional career as a Legal Document Specialist. Mrs Peg was in this particular industry for many years and is well experienced. She is very prompt at getting back to you and flexible. I enjoyed every encounter that I had from her and I would refer anyone to SoCalLegalDocs! Thank you Peg for all of your hard work and dedication.
V.M., Lake Elsinore, CA
I was very pleased with the great service Peg McLaughlin gave me last year. It was a very difficult time for me and Peg showed me every step for an easy process for divorce. She always made it easy for me to fill out paper work and return it to her. Especially being a single mother and working full time I never had to meet her or make inconvenient trip to meet her when I had a very busy schedule. She always kept me in touch of every step of the process and also when it was all over she still kept in touch to see how I was doing. I would suggest her to my own family and friends any time. She is very trust worthy person too.
Joanna C., Perris, CA
I HIGHLY recommend Peg’s services as an alternative to the traditional attorney assisted divorce. It definitely worked for us and our situation. She was able to meet us after hours and neither of us missed a day of work. We trusted her skills and knowledge every step of the way. This allowed us to focus on more important things such as healing and adjusting to our new lives. Thank you Peg!
C.D, Temecula, CA
I had the fortune of finding Peg McLaughlin to help me file for my divorce. She was very thorough and quite knowledgeable regarding the procedures and proceedings for divorce. She assisted me through all phases of legal paperwork and filings. Everything went smoother than I had expected. She kept me informed throughout the proceedings on multiple levels, taking the burden off me. I would highly recommend Peg. You certainly will not be disappointed with her services.
Ron G., Temecula, CA
I contacted Peg in the spring of 2011 to handle the legal paperwork for two separate court cases. One was an adoption and the other was to legally change the name for myself as well as my daughter. All paperwork was completed by Peg Mclaughlin in a timely manner and more importantly my paperwork was completed correctly. She instructed me on how and where to file all the documents and really made it an easy process. I highly recommend her to anybody in need of assistance and will use her in the future should the need arise.
Laura M., Temecula, CA
Peg McLaughlin was fantastic with our legal separation. She was very professional and explained things well. I never thought things could run so smoothly with a legal separation, but she went above and beyond to make this process streamline and headache free. I highly recommend her because she is quick, accurate, honest and simplifies the process.
Sarah V., Temecula, CA
Peg McLaughlin took care of a divorce for me. She was very professional and very kind. I was so nervous and she put me at ease. I would recommend her to anyone who wanted legal work done. It was close to the holidays when I went to see Peg in Nov. 2016. I felt comfortable after a few minutes and she proceeded to tell me about what to expect. Everything moved along fast and without problems and now I’m very happy and all that is behind me. She was very helpful with the whole process.
Pam H., Murrieta, CA
Thank you for your guidance and work on my divorce filings. It’s always an uncomfortable situation to walk into court without an attorney when the other party has one representing them. However, your high standards and ethics, knowledge and attention to detail made things a lot smoother for me than I could have ever imagined. One thing I would like to note is that the opening statement of the Judge directed to me, was that he was quite pleased with the detail and order of the paperwork that was submitted and that it was well put together. That was a direct compliment for you only, you were amazing and I appreciate you so much. Second, I had an issue occur which, in my opinion, was unethical of my ex husband’s attorney, pretending he didn’t receive the paperwork timely and insinuating that he wasn’t served on date noted on court stamped proof of service; however, due to your thoroughness and not leaving a single stone unturned, you were able to provide within the hour evidence not only of proof of service but the date and time someone from his office actually signed for it which indeed matched the proof of service turned into the courts. Thank you Thank you Thank you. I would advise anyone to hire you to handle their paperwork and you are more than welcome at any time to contact me if you need a referral. This was a painful process to go through a divorce so I thank you for your sensitivity but also your professionalism.
