WATERTOWN, N.Y. -- Watertown's newest business is now open and it's one its owners hope will help people though some tough times.

Legal Docs by Me is set up to help people fill out the legal paperwork in uncontested legal matters like living trusts, wills and divorces.

The business has been open for a few weeks now, but held it's grand opening Friday night.

It's offering no fees on wills, power of attorney forms and health care proxies until the end of the month to people who help serve their community.

Legal Docs by Me's owner says he's not out to replace lawyers, but rather just help those who choose to represent themselves.

"What I have seen is a high demand from people that want to represent themselves and just need a little bit of help with the paperwork," Legal Docs by Me CEO Derek Distenfield said. "That is where we come in. We'll prepare that paperwork for them for a one-time flat fee and get it filed for them."

Legal Docs by Me is planning to open a location in Syracuse this week.
