Welcome to the
Paralegal Assistant HQ
Congratulations on your decision to pursue a career as a paralegal. A paralegal is an lawyer’s assistant that also performs many legal tasks.
Paralegals are responsible for legal research, interacting with clients, preparing documents and clients as well as administrative and often secretarial tasks. A Paralegal (or legal assistant) is basically an attorney’s go-to person and right-hand man. A lawyer is only as good as his paralegals.
It is an ever changing position as the laws are constantly updated and new clients are taken on by attorneys. Living in a litigious society the demand and pay scale for paralegals is always on the rise. There are specialized opportunities in specific fields such as nursing that may be in even more demand.
As paralegals perform many of the same tasks as an attorney it is not uncommon for them to pursue law degrees. Find everything you need to start your Paralegal journey here. A paralegal is a rewarding profession to pursue, both personally and financially.
