Paralegals will play a major role in your case. It is important to know what they can and cannot do.
While they may have experience or knowledge of the law, they’re not qualified to practice the law. They cannot attend court on behalf of your lawyer or prepare any documents without the supervision of a lawyer, in saying that there are many things that a paralegal can do.
Your paralegal will often handle a lot of the paperwork involved in your case and also prepare and file any documents to the Court when required.
They play a major role in assisting lawyers with their research and helping them prepare for meetings and court.
Finally, your paralegal will often be the first point of contact before you speak with your lawyer.
It is important to know that they can and will communicate with you to achieve the best outcome for your case.
