About Us


Our mission at A Preferred Filing & Search Services, Inc. is to give exceptionally accurate, customizable – yet affordable service to all our clients.

Too many times, we hear how frustrated a new client is in working with a particular government agency in their attempts to seek answers to their most important questions of a new business venture they are pursuing or concerns and questions with their existing business.

We help to guide them in the right direction to seek such answers or simply knowing the procedural steps and full process brings back the joy they first had but was stripped away in their initial talks with the government agency and/or another service company not giving them true service.

Our achievements in operating a successful business in the public records research industry have come in a few different beliefs. From the many years of combined employee teamwork experience and truly listening to our client’s needs and wants; to not succumbing to evils of greed and fraud when working closely with other research firms and government offices – nationwide.

"I am an attorney in private practice in Orange County, California and I have been using A Preferred Filing & Search Services for years to handle all of my filing of important documents with the California Secretary of State’s office in Sacramento. This includes filing articles of incorporation for new corporations, articles of organization for new limited liability companies, and business dissolution documents. A Preferred always handles the matter correctly and promptly and the staff is always available to answer any questions that arise. In addition, the staff is always able to tell me how long something is likely to take and is able to give me reports on the progress of a filing as it works through the pipeline. Furthermore, A Preferred’s fees are extremely reasonable. Before I started using A Preferred, I filed documents directly with the Secretary of State’s office but things took much longer, I never knew if the SOS had even received my filing, and I never knew how long something was going to take. I no longer even consider filing important documents without A Preferred’s help."
