Blog originally published on December 11, 2015. Updated on December 8, 2022.

When beginning legal proceedings, it’s extremely important to have an iron-clad process serving procedure in place for any legal document you need to deliver. There’s a good chance that the person you’re trying to find won’t want to receive legal notice, and if you aren’t able to find them, it could endanger your entire case.

The best option available is to get in touch with a quality process server who will get the necessary papers to their target. But there are so many process serving businesses to choose from; how do you know which one is the best? Below we discuss what makes a good process server.


Process serving is a job that requires a great deal of infield experience to adequately master. After all, there’s not one go-to method for tracking down a person who doesn’t want to be found.

Proper service of important court documents requires razor-sharp instincts that have been honed over years of work, a deep, intimate knowledge of the city or area that the server will be working in, and a thorough understanding of the legal process as well as local regulations.

The best process servers will have the experience and knowhow that will help them track their targets down in the shortest time possible. Sometimes this may require multiple service attempts to find the right person at the right time. Experienced process servers may also be members of a civil process server organization such as the National Association of Professional Process Servers (NAPPS.)


The last thing you need is for a sloppy process serving agency to endanger your entire case, but that’s exactly what could happen if the other party is able to demonstrate that the process server didn’t do their due diligence or acted unscrupulously.

A good process server will have a solid reputation built on years of good legal practice tracking down targets and getting them their papers. They will be able to demonstrate to a judge exactly how thorough they were able to be in their procedures, exploring every available option while never crossing any legal limits.
