Making Mistakes As A Paralegal?
Have Been A Paralegal For Two Years, And I Still Find Myself Making Silly Mistakes On Occasion. I Think For The Most Part I Do Good Work, And I Truly Care About My Job. Occasionally Though, I Still Miss A Check Mark On A Form, Have A Typo In A Letter, Or The Last Big Screw Was As Follows:
I Sent Out A Contract Engagement Letter With A Typo In The File Number. It Was One Number Off. As A Result, Money Came Back And Was Associated With The Wrong Client Leading To An Accounting Nightmare. It Wasn'T Pretty. I Also Had Double Checked This Letter, And Still Missed The Error!
Are There Any Other Paralegals On Here That Experience Occasional Mistakes At Work? It Seems Like The Standard Is Perfection All The Time, But It Is Hard To Acheive It!
Also, Is It Okay For Your Supervising Attorney To Catch These Mistakes Occasionally Or Is It Your Opinion That The Paralegal Should Present Them With Perfect Documents So That They Don'T Have To Review Them?
Any Advice From Fellow Paralegals Would Be Greatly Appreciated!
Hi there. I am currently employed as a commercial construction litigation paralegal. Try saying that 10 times fast LOL. My area of law is highly complex and complicated, and for that reason, perfection is demanded. I literally sent out 16 Requests for Equitable Adjustment claims for MILLIONS of dollars. Talk about pressure! Anything and everything I handle is literally worth millions of dollars somewhere. That is the nature of large construction projects.
Do I make simple mistakes? Yes. We're only human. If a paralegal were to post they never make mistakes, they are simply a liar. We all do it.
I work for great attorneys that understand that is why we review each other's work. When they catch a simple typo or something that I inadvertently miss, I do not get harassed or put down. That is why we always have 2-3 pairs of eyes. We are only human and no one is perfect. I always pass my correspondence to the legal secretary to read. She always passes her correspondence to me. We treat proofing as mutual respect issue. We accept we make mistakes and we pass things around to get a fresh pair of eyes on things.
Honestly, the statement of, "...should present them with perfect documents so that they don't have to review them," made me wince a bit. I don't know how involved you are with your career. I am a member of two paralegal organizations and the State Bar Construction Law Section. I have to attend many hours of CLE and ethics. Hanging in front of me are the State Bar's Paralegal Ethics. On this sheet states that a paralegal shall never submit work to client that has not been reviewed by an attorney. I don't know if you employ in such standards, but no matter how much it irritates my boss, he reviews EVERYTHING I send, down to the simple, "Enclosed is a CD containing Bates Numbered images 001-002." This is for YOUR protection. As paralegals, we forget we can be sued for the unauthorized practice of law. Sometimes, my correspondence is so detailed with instructions from my supervising attorney, I ensure he reviews it and gives me the verbal go ahead. If your supervising attorney does not appreciate your thoroughness...I wince.
My advice is always have someone else check your work. A fresh pair of eyes ensures the client/opposing counsel receives perfect work. It should not be viewed as a negative thing. Make checklists. I have checklists, that after repeated use, have become habit. My first one was simple. Check the date, check the format, check the outgoing address, is the fax number correct, is the mailing address correct. I now go through these things systematically and produce very few mistakes. I always run spell check and grammar check. THEN I proofread on my own to catch mistakes. I do not proofread on the computer screen. I noticed that it is easier for tired eyes to glance over mistakes. I always print a DRAFT watermarked copy, make my changes, then have the secretary read it. Then I finalize, present to the attorney and request his review. The best advice is to walk away for a few minutes and go back. I don't know how many times I thought something was perfect, went to get a cup of coffee, looked down and saw a mistake. Sometimes, if it isn't urgent, I put it to the side, work on something else, and THEN go back to it. I catch my own mistakes that way as well. Lastly, take your time. You should watch me proof. I literally get out a ruler on client numbers, dollar numbers and important information and triple check. If it is important enough, I draft a cheat sheet with the important information so I can go back and compare.
The important thing is to focus on what is in front of you. Ask yourself what needs to be perfect in the document you are preparing. Client number? Dollar amount? County? Jurisdiction? I find that when I slow down and really ask..."What needs to be perfect?" I produce flawless work. Good luck!
California Family Law Subpoena...Which Form To Use...?
I Need To Subpoena My Son'S School For All Of His Information And Teacher Credential And Schooling Info. Yes I Have Joint Legal And Physical Custody But They Still Won'T Give It To Me. That'S Why I Need A Subpoena...Please Send The Link Or The Form #. I'Ve Checked Www.Courtinfo.Ca.Gov But All Of These Are For Business Records And I'M Asking For More Than Business Info.
Use the business records one, that can include all of the records pertaining to your son, as well as anything else that you specify on the subpoena. You can also attach the attachment form (that's what it's called on the CA forms site) and specify in detail what documents you want.
Would You Recommend Getting A Lawyer In A Family Court Matter From The Same County Or Just The Best You Can Fi
I strongly feel that you can't put a price tag on family issues so get the best lawyer possible regardless of the price. I'm sure you know people that have gone through the same process so ask them for a referral. I would also consider looking within the same county first.

Need Legal Advise. Personal Injury?
On Thursday May 5Th. I Slipped On The Public Restroom Floor At The Local Mall And Dislocated My Left Knee. The Floor Was Wet. I Now Require Physiotherapy And May In The Future Require Surgeries. A Lot Of People Have Been Telling Me To Go After The Mall For Compensation But I'M Really No Sure If I Have A Case At All.
Also, The Mall Has Contacted Me Once To Find Out What My Employment Status Is But That Was Weeks Ago. I Would At Least Like Compensation For Medical Expences But I'M Not Sure How To Go About Asking For It.
If They Do Present Me With Some Sort Of Settlement I'M Heasatent To Sign Anything Incase I Do Require Surgeries Or Other Medical Expenses Accrue In The Future As A Result Of This Accident.
What Would You Recomend?
I'M A 26 Year Old Resident Of Ontario, Canada. Incase That Makes Any Difference
I am not familiar with Canadian law. This is specific to my state's laws:
The mall may not have any liability whatsoever. The only time a business is liable for injuries is when they are acting negligently. That the restroom floor was wet does not mean that that the mall is automatically negligent and it does not mean that the mall is responsible in any way for any injuries that might happen.
When a slip happens in a restroom, the injured party has a number of problems. The first is that public restrooms often have wet floors. We have a responsibility to use extra care when we are walking in a restroom. The second is that there is usually a wet floor sign posted. The third is that unless the mall was aware that the floor was more wet than usual and had failed (over a reasonable period of time) to either mop up the floor and/or post a sign, the mall is not behaving with negligence.
Oftentimes, a business will pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses for a person who is injured on their property - just to make the situation go away. But if that person begins to ask for the moon and the stars (i.e. pain and suffering, potential future medical bills that may or may not be necessary), then the business will often tell the person to take them to court.
How Do I Find Out If Mutal Referral Services Is Using My Husbands Information Given On The Loan Application?
We Applied For A Loan With Mutual Referral Services They Said We Were Approved For A Loan Of 10,000 With A 6% Interest Rate, We Believed It So We Sent In Copies Of Pay Stub And A Copy Of My Husbands Ssn With The Last 4 Numbers Blacked Out, Then They Told Us As Soon As We Send Them 1800.00 For An Insurance Payment They Would Deposit They Money Into Our Checking Account, I Told My Husband We Do Not Have That Kind Of Money To Send To Them, And After Doing Some Research I Could Not Find A Phone Number For Them In Virgina The 411 In Va Said They Did Not Have A Listing For Them And Now They Do Not Even Have A Website, I Have Contacted Our Bank Just In Case They Try To Do Anything With My Husbands Account, But What Else Should I Do?
You should also place a freeze on your husbands social security number just in case. You should also report this company to you local state attorney generals office as there is a law(not sure if its federal or state) that prohibits and upfront fee from being charged for a loan. This screams scam to me.
