CONNIE CROCKETT, Legal Document Assistant, Paralegal, Notary Public, and Owner
I moved to Nevada City at age 8. I received my paralegal certificate from Chico State University in 1986. After working with family law attorneys for the next eight years, on January 30, 1994 I opened S.O.S. in downtown Nevada City (originally known as Savelly's Office Services). S.O.S. also contained a small stationary store and free self-help law library (years prior to the creation of the Nevada County Public Law Center).
Between March, 1992 and March, 2002 I served as the Nevada County Small Claims Advisor. I assist Sierra County Superior Court with guardianship matters. I have been on the board of the California Association of Legal Document Assistants (CALDA) since 2002 serving as fundraising, legislative and conference chair, and vice-president.
I am blessed with children and grandchildren living nearby, and I am grateful to have spent nearly my whole life in this beautiful community.
