I am very grateful for the professional service and easy to understand instructions with regard to legalization of my documents. The whole process was cumbersome for me as I had to deal with everything across continents, but with GMJ it became much easier. Indeed, it was fast, easy and affordable!

I cant say enough great things about GMJ. Firstly the service was very fast and affordable. Any questions I had they were quick to respond. But their true colors were shown when I had problems with the Spanish Consulate who lost my documents. GMJ did everything they could to help resolve this problem with the Consulate even though this extended past their service. Not only did they do everything they could they reimbursed me for the difficulties I had with ordering new documents. This was completely unexpected and not necessary, but it just shows you how much they care about their clients. I would highly recommend GMJ.

I was looking for someone with fast, affordable service. I got that and so much more. I was expecting to be sitting on those papers for weeks but Gord got everything done in only a few days. That included picking up the documents, serving them and bringing back the signed and commissioned affidavit. Definitely would use them again.

Thank you very much for your help and services. Fast and efficient, great service. I will definitely contact you in the future if needed. Thanks again.

Had the unfortunate experience of having to go to court at the age of 19 through small claims. Was pretty lost as to what to do with all of the craziness that follows court. The defendant had made numerous threats and accusations. I needed a way to protect myself and the integrity of my claim. I also needed someone affordable with experience to serve the defendant. I called Gord because he was simply the best option I could find. I’m so happy I did. Although he is not legal council, he did help me with my claim. Gord communicated very clearly with me, was very knowledgeable, and most of all turned a terrible day into a better day! He is very serious about the quality of his service. Gord made sure that my bases were covered when I went to court. He is very good at tracking people down and making sure the documents get where they need to go! I would recommend GMJ to anyone.

Always received excellent service and would recommend GMJ to anyone requiring service in the Ottawa area.

I was in a panic more then I usually am. I needed my University degree authenticated ASAP. Gord saved the day. Professional,  a good natural that just melts the stress away. I would suggest GMJ to anyone looking to get documents signed stamped, notarized, authenticated.

Affordable, quick and detailed service. GMJ Professionals are very helpful and always go above and beyond trying to help.
I wanted to get some papers certified from the italian embassy and i thought it’s impossible. They made extra efforts to get my case solved. Definitely recommend working with Jen & Gord

I cannot recommend GMJ Professional Services highly enough. My circumstances were complicated and convoluted but, though I was in Europe, they carried out my many instructions flawlessly and fast. Most important, they were very attentive, answering every request — and there were many — promptly, regardless of the time of day or night. I was worried but they gave me confidence, knowing things were getting done on my behalf. Whenever they weren’t sure about something, they researched the answer and got back to me quickly. I have never met them but I trust them.

Again many thanks. I have my legal status here.

Best regards,

Hi Gord and Jen,
Just received the package. I am so happy with your service that I can’t find words to pay thanks.
Trust me, it’s extremely rare to receive an awesome service like yours. You people are amazing, honest and trustworthy.
Upon my arrival in Dubai I will definitely recommend your company name to be placed on the list of agencies who are used for attestation and authentication purposes by the new hires.

I wish you all the best for the holidays and a very happy new year.
God Bless You.


GMJ Professional Services is a by all means topnotch. I was reluctant to go to a process server originally but I’m very glad I did. They kept me well informed through the entire process and took the stress out of a complicated situation. They were an advocate when I felt sidelined by an often confusing legal system. Everything was fast and perfectly documented. They went above and beyond any service I was expecting. I would gladly recommend them to anyone.

I can’t say enough about the fast, efficient, professional service that I have always received.He even responds when he is away on a trip with his wife of many years. He has been my savior as I live about 6 hours away from Ottawa. I would highly recommend him!!!

Thank you VERY much – you’ve been top notch all the way along. I almost went with another company initially that was cheaper but you were so efficient and diligent about everything from the get-go that I decided you’d be better, and that is clearly the case. I hope I have the privilege of working with you again in the future, and at least have the chance to recommend you to others.

Best regards,

I was in a tough spot with a trial approaching; I needed to find someone to serve my documents, fill out the affidavit of service and file the documents with the court. I emailed GMJ at 7am and got an immediate response. The party was served, the affidavit of service was filled out and filed along with the documents at the courthouse all before 11am.
I was more than pleased with my decision to use GMJ.

GMJ Professional Services saved the day for our family.  My husband and I live in Calgary.  Our adult son recently moved to Dubai where he was offered a job after his arrival.  In order to begin employment, my son had to have his Canadian university degree authenticated by both the Canadian government, in Ottawa, and the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Ottawa.  The degree and the accompanying paperwork, then had to be forwarded to Dubai.  I cannot say enough positive things about Gord Smith and how he helped us with this whole process.  Gord was knowledgeable and he gave us the heads up as to any possible delays that could occur, so that we could be proactive and have all the paperwork in the right place at the right time.  He then facilitated the completion of the authentications at both locations right away and saw to sending the whole package off to Dubai.  Gord was responsive to every email and phone call he received from us, the worried parents in Calgary, and he saw that everything happened with the greatest speed possible.  When an unexpected hiccup occurred on our end, Gord came up with the solution and saw to the details at his end.  Gord Smith was instrumental in achieving our goal – getting the paperwork taken care of on the other side of the country, so that my son could get to work on the other side of the world.  We will call GMJ Professional Services immediately, the next time we need paperwork taken care of in Ottawa.

GMJ Professional Services, Gord Smith and team provided fantastic service, I could not be more happy. I required a document authenticated at the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), and Legalized by the Mexican Embassy for a sensitive estate matter. I initially made contact through their website and received a timely response with concise details of the process, pricing, payment options and estimate of how long the project would take to complete. In addition, without asking, Gord eased my mind considerably by providing email updates each step of the way! Now, this is added value and GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! I am so very pleased and thank you so much for taking what seemed like such a difficult project from “How Do I?” to “DONE!”.

“I have been utilizing Gord Smith’s services in the Ottawa area since 2000 and he has not disappointed us.  Gord’s service has always been exceptional, prompt, accurate and thorough.  I have never considered trying any other process serving firm in the Ottawa area.  I have recommended Gord to other law firms and paralegals and have always had excellent feed back.”

“I’ve been using GMJ for over 4 years and I’m pleased to say that they offer quick, reliable and cost-effective solutions. I highly recommend them! ”
