About the Owner, David L. Ransom Jr.

David at The Walt Disney Studios

David L. Ransom Jr.  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 is a Los Angeles native. He has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics/Applied Science from UCLA (December 1987). David speaks and writes in English, Spanish and French.  David’s interests include: all things Disney, Acting,  Screenwriting, Art and Music.  David also has a keen interest in Law, and would like to be an Attorney someday.   David has studied Acting at the Joanne Baron/DW Brown Studio for 2 years, and has taken Acting and Screenwriting courses through UCLA Extension. 

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 the California Secretary of State  and from the US Department of State in Washington DC, David has also obtained Apostilles from most other U.S. states for his clients.  David has also visited many local Consulates in Los Angeles, including China, Brazil, Ecuador, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, and others. In partnership with another firm,  we also provide Authentication  Services for Public Documents,  for all countries with  Embassies in Washington DC.    

David became a Loan Signing-Agent in 2006, in order to further his Notary experience.   David has presided over 2,000 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.


More recently,  has previously performed many notarizations (for 3 years) for a particular law firm in Los Angeles, on a contracted basis,  where he expertly notarized paperwork which is the underlying documents of certain bonds, which were sold to Wall Street.  

As times have changed and other competitors have entered the field, David remains dedicated to maintaining his high standards and integrity.  David maintains an annual Errors and Omissions policy of $100,000. 

David’s previous experience as a Customer Service Agent  for Fed Ex Express from 1989 through 2003 and as a Courier for Fed Ex Express in Hollywood from 2004 to November 2005 gave him an edge and unique perspective in this business.  His 4 years of experience working at The Disney Store (Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw) and his 1 year of working at Disneyland in two different departments (Cast Costuming and Disney Vacation Club)  have also contributed to his quest for excellent customer service.   David has been an independent Notary Public running this business since June of 2006. 

David is currently focusing on his Acting career (with plans to actually go out for auditions in the near future), and studying for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) (because David intends to go to Law School and become a successful lawyer).   Your use of our Notary and Apostille Services greatly helps David in achieving both of these endeavors.
