About the Owner, David Ransom

David Ransom is the Owner and Founder of Hollywood Notary Dot Net in Los Angeles. David has been a Notary Public since November of 2005.  David conceived of Hollywood Notary Dot Net while working at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.  David is an expert Mobile Notary Public and has extensive street knowledge of most areas of Los Angeles County.

David discovered that clients needed Apostilles and Authentications shortly after becoming a Notary Public.  He created an online California Apostille Order Form,  (and this company was the first to do so), which led to his attainment of clients from all over the State of California and from all over the world!


In doing Apostilles and Authentications of documents for international use, David has learned over time through experience (and some trial and error) all about preparing public documents (documents signed by public officials like Notaries) for use in other countries.  In addition to   getting Apostilles from California and the US Department of State, David has also obtained Apostilles from most other U.S. states for clients.  David also frequently visits local Consulates for countries which have consulates in Los Angeles, including China, Brazil, Ecuador, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, and others. David also provides, in a partnership relation with another expert firm,  Authentications Services for all Embassies in Washington DC, as well as the U.S. Department of State (USDOS) in Washington DC.

David became a Loan Signing-Agent in 2006, in order to further his Notary experience.   David has presided over 1,400 loan closings.  David has experience in signing paperwork from all major lenders, including Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, and Citibank. David has performed signings inside banks as well as at clients’ homes and businesses.

As times have changed and other competitors have entered the field, David has had to “up his game” in order to remain competitive in this field.   David is dedicated to maintaining his high standards and integrity in this competitive field, as he has dedicated himself to maintain a leadership in the fields of Mobile Notary Service and Apostille/ Authentications Services in the State of California.

David’s experience as a Fed Ex Customer Service Agent from 1989 through 2003 and as a Fed Ex Courier from 2004 to November 2005 gives him an edge and unique perspective in this business.  His 4 years of experience working at The Disney Store and his 1 year of working at Disneyland in 2 departments have also contributed to his quest for excellent customer service.  David is proud that he has been able to run Hollywood Notary Dot Net since 2006.
