Process Service | Video Taping Depostions | Serving North Texas
Hi, my name is Lee Russell and I formed CPS Companies twenty five 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, so I gave 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 tape for clients. Because of the unique laws and rules that govern service of process in Texas I have spent much time learning the rules of civil procedure, as well as the federal rules so that I am very familiar with both the documents that I serve as well as prepare.
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. Recently I helped the association put together a test to certify process servers here in the state. That way people are assured that they are hiring quality people who know the business of serving process.
