Marcella Goodwin is a native of El Dorado County where her family has been well established in local business for over thirty years. With more than twenty years of experience in business herself, she is the owner of Legal Docs on Main, a family-owned legal document preparation business located in the historic Cary House Hotel in downtown Placerville.

She graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Literature and Writing. She attended an American Bar Association-approved program for Legal Document Assistants (formerly known as paralegals) at The University of San Diego Law School, a private Jesuit college, where she graduated with honors.

While working for law firms and companies such as Cooper, White and Cooper, Engs Lease Plan, and Espirit Corporation in San Francisco and the East Bay area, she grew her first "Independent Paralegal" business.

She provided a number of paralegal services to the public, eventually specializing in estate planning. This led her to create Legal Docs on Main — an innovative new concept to help people and businesses to easily obtain the legal documents they need quickly, at an affordable price.
