ServeNow.com Testimonials

"Since late last year, Servenow.com has directed more traffic to our website than any combination of three other internet advertising campaigns. The increased traffic has more than tripled the amount of business actually received for the Process and Court Services division of our PI company. As a result, we now get repeat business from out-of-state clients and have solidified business relationships with dozens of local law firms. The ability to easily locate and forward papers to fellow members has also led to an increase in our bottom line. Servenow.com certainly shines above the rest for increased profitability."

 Gary Beard

"Using ServeNow.com to find local process servers saves us a lot of time when we need papers served in others areas."
