We want to give a big thank you to everyone who participated in our 35th Anniversary Giveaway and helped us celebrate 35 years of providing process service to the legal community!

We gave away tons of great prizes including free service certificates, Rocky Mountain Chocolate baskets, Bluetooth speakers, an iPad and an Apple watch. It was easy to tell from their responses how excited our winners were and we were happy to be able to add that little something extra to their day!

Here’s the winner of our iPad with his prize – clearly much appreciated!

We’ve had a blast giving away these 35 prizes, giving us the chance to celebrate each of the years we’ve been in business while making someone’s day.

In these 35 years the industry has changed dramatically and so has DGR, going from the owner Jerry Colasurdo running everything as one-man show to an established company with over 85 employees. Looking forward to seeing what the next 35 years brings for DGR!

DGR Celebrates 35th Anniversary

Posted by | DGR News | No Comments

This year DGR – The Source for Legal Supports celebrates 35 years of providing process service and messenger service to the legal community.

Started in 1981 by Jerry Colasurdo and operating as a one-man show covering the entire state for over three years, hard work has turned DGR into an international operation with over 80 employees.

DGR has expanded as well over the years, adding on document retrieval, notary services and foreclosure services to help provide clients with a wider range of services all within one business.

All of these services focus on the same foundation blocks. Since the start DGR has been built on three things: speed, competitive pricing and customer service. Sticking to those cornerstones has allowed DGR to grow while keeping our clients happy.

“In the past 35 years DGR has served hundreds of thousands of defendants and delivered thousands and thousands of documents and packages. I’ve always stressed to our employees that service 1,000 for a client should be performed just as diligently as service 1. Keeping consistent over the years has helped us grow a very loyal client base while bringing on new clients who are looking for a process server and messenger service they can depend on”, says Jerry Colasurdo, President and owner of DGR – The Source for Legal Support.

We’re excited to see what’s going to happen in the next 35 years and look forward to continuing to work with our amazing, loyal clients.

Tug’s Anniversary – 20 Years With DGR

Posted by | DGR News | No Comments

Tug's Anniversary - 20 Years With DGRTugrul Turna, or Tug as most of us at DGR know him, celebrated his 20 year anniversary with DGR in November. Originally from Turkey, Tug started working at DGR on November 18th, 1995 and it would be his first job in the States.

Over the years Tug has encountered some interesting situations and collected quite a few stories. One time he was serving a subpoena for records upon a dentist whose office was located at the end of a strip mall. As he was telling the secretary what he had for the dentist, the dentist looked in from an adjoining room and told the secretary not to accept the papers. Tug indicated he was still going to leave the papers and they were only a request for records, not for a deposition or notice of any suit. The dentist became so upset with this that he came around from behind the desk area, yelling at Tug. People in the waiting area stared as the doctor grabbed Tug’s wrist and the secretary came after him, yelling and waving her hands in the air. Eventually Tug managed to break free and started running to his car which was parked at the end of the strip mall. Just when he thought it was safe, he turned to see the dentist chasing after him! Thankfully he managed to get to his car in time and pulled away from the scene without any further incident.

Tug’s favorite story though is when he had to complete a service on a defendant who had been evading right after the big snow storm of ’96. DGR was told he left his house every morning at 5am to go to Starbucks. The only problem was that he lived in a big house on a hill, which was blocked with a fence and en electric gate in front of the driveway. Tug waited nearly five hours that night into the morning in his car, waiting for the defendant to exit. Which wouldn’t have been so bad except snow was piled five feet high everywhere and his car didn’t have heat! With his car parked along the stone fence in view of the gate, he must have looked a little suspicious because a cop stopped to ask him what he was doing. Once he explained the cop left.

Eventually the defendant drove down the driveway. As the gates slowly opened, Tug saw the defendant relaxed and smoking with his window down. Tug took his chance and jumped next to the car, explaining what papers he had. The defendant tried to pull away, but Tug knew he had to finish this service. He held onto the car door and stuck his arm into the window, shoving the papers into the car as the man tried to roll up his window.

Thank you Tug for all you do. DGR wouldn’t be the same without you!
