"Since we started using ServeNow.com, which is a little over three months, our business has increased close to 30 percent. ServeNow.com has brought us work from all over the United States. Also, our company uses ServeNow.com to find other process servers successfully and that makes our clients even happier!

We are interested in expanding our coverage on ServeNow.com as I haven't found anything that comes close to the advertising and low costs with positive results. Thank you for providing such a great service!"

 Ruth Pippin
 Family & Court Services, LLC
 Tavares, FL

"Over the years I have worked with many different companies and have never found anything that works as well as ServeNow.com. As an example, I changed my telephone number and forgot to change it on my ServeNow.com ad and was wondering why I was not getting calls. As soon I changed my number the phone started ringing again. Today alone I already have received three new clients. The customer service is great, as well. I always get a live person on the phone when I call. Thanks ServeNow.com."
