Started in 2009, owner Jaclyn A. Lusk began You Got Served / YGS Legal as an attorney service firm, specifically managing service of process for several Southern California law firms. For the past decade, Jaclyn has worked closely with lawyers and law firms to gain the skills and knowledge to assist the general public with their legal document preparation needs.
Given the knowledge and skills developed, we determined in order to cover all the aspects and services we offer, re-branding the business was in our best interest.
In 2018, The Legal Shop was created. This allowed YGS Legal to go through a re-branding / transition that incorporates all of the services currently provided by the company.
The Legal Shop continues to provide a low-cost alternative to hiring an attorney. We are one place you can go for all of your legal needs.
The Legal Shop, LLC, is not a law firm, and its employees are not your attorney. This office does not practice law and does not give legal advice. Instead, you are representing yourself in any legal matter you undertake through our office and/or our website. Our document preparation service is strictly limited to document preparation under the scope of California law. At no time do we check your answers for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. Any communication with our office is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney.
** We do not guarantee any results for a particular case, and the information on this website is not intended as legal advice. **
When it comes to your children the most important thing is having a close and nurturing relationship. At the end of any custody case or divorce case with children, the court makes a ruling on which parent will have legal custody of the parties' child or children and how much parenting time each parent will have with them. If you are in need of legal assistance with your documentation or any child custody, divorce, adoption or related matter, we can help you and your family at a lower cost than an attorney.

Child Custody & Support

Estate planning is for everyone. Believe it or not you, have an estate. Your estate is everything you own, your car, home, other real estates, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, personal possessions. Too many people don’t have a plan and most put off estate planning because they think they don’t own enough, they’re not old enough, they’re busy, think they have plenty of time, they’re confused and don’t know who can help them, or they just don’t want to think about it. If you don’t have a plan your State has one for you, but you probably wont like it. Therefore, no matter how large or how modest, your assets should always be planned out. Not only will estate planning give you peace of mind to know that your belongings are going to your loved ones but your loved one will not have to pick up the pieces and/or deal with any legal matters after a passing. Estate planning is so important, and we can help you and your family at a lower cost than an attorney.
