Paralegal by Definition

“A legal assistant or paralegal is a person, qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible.” American Bar Association

A paralegal cannot provide you with any legal advice, or represent you in a court of law. If you have a situation that is beyond the scope of a paralegal, we are happy to assist in finding the right attorney for you.
