There are some nationwide Social Security Advocacy firms that apparently do well enough to advertise a lot. They are regulated by SSA. California requires Immigration Consultants to post bond. Public Notaries such as they exists in some states also provide independent paralegal services. Given that lawyers have a lot more latitude to cheat clients and state bars are often indifferent regulators - as long as there is a need someone will provide the service. My point is that most DL law students will fail to pass the California bar but they can still work in the legal system and provide services while turning a profit equal or better than a solo practitioner if they are good enough.
