  • I've been using DLS for process serving and document retrieval for the past 27 years – since 1985. I’ve been in small and large firms in that time, and after many years of excellent service, I can say that DLS’s personnel – in New York City, Westchester and Albany – have always been knowledgeable of the law and dependable in their responsiveness. And, what’s important to every litigator, they always rise to the occasion when the circumstances are urgent or difficult. I heartily recommend DLS.

  • I gave DLS a difficult process serving assignment two years ago which they carried out quickly and accurately. Since then, DLS has been the only process serving company I use and the only process serving company I will recommend. I recently started using DLS's lawyers services. Same quickness and diligence. And so, DLS is now the only attorney service I recommend.

  • There is a multitude of process serving companies in New York which promise reliability, speed and accuracy but only one delivers: DLS. Howard Goldman, along with Jon Ripps and their staff of professionals are not only experts in their field but provide a sense of security with every service we send them. DLS always undertakes the required and crucial steps necessary for proper service; a quality lacking in most of the competition. Their affidavits are succinct, accurate and always professional. I find all their work completed with consistency, pride and a mixture of passion and good humor. I enthusiastically recommend their company.

  • I first learned of DLS through a word-of-mouth referral in an emergency: I called them in the afternoon needing same-day service of an Order to Show Cause in a different county. DLS got the job done. They were responsive and professional, with a cost-effective price tag. After years of searching and using many different court and process serving services, the search ends with DLS.
