Law offices are made up of many components, and paralegals provide an important part of the support attorneys offer to clients. But what exactly do they do? Paralegals have received formal training and are able perform certain legal tasks in support of and under the supervision of an attorney. Paralegals can handle much of the paperwork on cases ranging from divorces to estate matters to depositions. Whether in a law office or the Legal Resources Member Services’ Department, you can count on paralegals to provide an advanced understanding of the legal system and uphold the standards of ethics and confidentiality.
