ABOUT PREFERRED LEGAL SERVICES, INC.
Preferred Legal Services, Inc. has been a forerunner in legal support services since its origin in 1966.

Founded that year by Jerry Topolos, current president, the company was a charter member of the California Association of Professional Process Servers (formed in 1968), and the National Association of Professional Process Servers (formed in 1985). It took the lead in co-founding two new firms: California Legal Support Services, Inc. (1980), a corporation comprised of 14 offices statewide, and East Bay Attorney Service (1982) in Oakland.

Along the way, Preferred Legal Services overtook several of its regional competitors, growing through the acquisition of Legal Photocopy Service (1968), Attorney's Messenger Service of California (1979), A & B Legal Service (1980), and Rapid Serve (1984).

Preferred Legal Services has been based in the hub of San Francisco for four decades.  After 18 years at 1095 Market Street in San Francisco and 10 years at 1232 Market Street, the company moved to 210 Fell Street, San Francisco for 11 more years.  In 2011 Preferred Legal Services moved to 601 Van Ness Ave..  Incorporation came in 1986, with Jerry Topolos as president and Christine Topolos as vice-president.
JERRY TOPOLOS
Jerry Topolos was born in Portland, Oregon. His family moved to San Francisco in 1947, and Jerry and his family have lived there ever since. He has been married to Christine for 35 years and they have two children, Joey and Wendy. Jerry was fortunate to achieve his life long ambition of being self-employed when he purchased Preferred Legal Services in San Francisco in 1966. Over the years, he abided by his saying,"If you can't beatum,buyum," by purchasing Legal Photocopy Service, Attorneys Messenger Service of California, AAA Small Claims Process Service and Rapid Serve.

Jerry has been a member of CALSPro since its inception, and would have been a founding member if the first conference had it not been held during his honeymoon. He has been active in CALSPro by serving on the board of directors, Northern Area Governor, and the Steering Committee chair. He is also a member of the Washington, Oregon, and Arizona associations and a founding member of NAPPS. Jerry has been a big supporter of the industry.  In 2007 he earned the industry’s coveted Bert Rosenthal Award for personal excellence and integrity.
