Notaries are likely to be subject to lawsuits due to improperly notarized documents and other notarial mistakes. To help notaries avoid mistakes and protect themselves, the National Notary Association (NNA) has created a web page offering tips and advice on how to prevent lawsuits.

The NNA’s Notary Lawsuit Protection Web Page includes videos about steps notaries can take to prevent legal claims and what notaries should do if they are sued, a PDF document to download, print and use as reference, and links to more information on the topic.
