What is expected of a Writ Legal contract process server?

Writ Legal pre-screens each applicant to ensure that he/she holds proper credentials as applicable by state law. Although experience is not a requirement as training is provided, it is certainly a plus. Most of our contractors are private investigators, ex-law enforcement, security guards, etc. Whatever the case may be, we expect our process servers to use sound judgment and common sense when out in the field.  Making a diligent effort on each service attempt and most importantly upholding a professional demeanor while performing on a job is of utmost importance to Writ Legal.
