What Do Paralegals Do?
What Exactly Do Paralegals Do?? I'M Considering It As A Career Option And Would Like To Know The Different Kinds And What They Do. What Do You Think Of Fisher College In Boston? Thanks For Any Responses!
I was a commercial litigation paralegal for over ten plus years (but also worked on labor cases, intellectual property matters, antitrust cases, and corporate law).
Basically, a good paralegal is an attorney's right hand man/woman. They'll draft legal documents filed with the courts or served on the other party/ies and fact check, cite check, quote check, etc. information contained within the briefs for accuracy. The paralegal often accompanies the attorney/s at trials and hearings with supporting documents, exhibits, etc.
The paralegal is also responsible for documents produced within a case -- once obtained, they usually are responsible for organizing and managing them. (If an attorney calls asking for a specific document, it's imperative that it's found promptly.)
Being a paralegal can be glamorous (like flying across the country for a trial) and mundane (sitting in a room filled with boxes looking for a document that may/may not exist).
As for Fisher College, I am unfamiliar with them (only because I'm in Los Angeles). The thing to consider is that the school's paralegal program is ABA approved (many reputable/better paying firms will only look at paralegal certificates from ABA approved programs) and, if you have a 4 year degree, that also is helpful. Good luck and e-mail me if you have any more questions.

What Are The Top 5 Reasons To Be A Lawyer? Top 5 Reasons To Go To Harvard Law?
I Need To Know The Top 5 Reasons To Be A Lawyer And The Top 5 Reasons To Go To Harvard Law School. Please Help! Thanks!
I graduated from Harvard Law back in May. So, let me give you some insight.
Top 5 reasons to be a lawyer:
I used to think it was all about helping people, but please, work in the field for a few months and you will realize that it's all about money and reputation. Do not get me wrong, I love when I can help clients obtain what they are looking for, however, even your own clients are all about money. I would be LYING if I said it was to "save the world" and to "fix our judicial system" that is fairy-tale talk.
Top 5 Reasons to go to Harvard Law:
1) Money (how much you will make after)
3) Quality of education
4) High prospects (job offers)
5) ALL OF THE ABOVE
Now, let me give you the real deal. Law school WILL NOT prepare you to be a lawyer. Law schools prepares your brain to think logically, and to learn how to read and comprehend the law. You will use less than 10% of your knowledge from law school in your field. Don't let anyone else fool you.
Getting into Harvard is very........very hard. I had a 3.9 GPA from Columbia University, and a 176 on my LSAT's. In undergrad, I was in a sorority, captain of the debate team, president of the history club, english club, and student body officer. I was also the president of my graduating class. I did this in 3 years at columbia. Meaning, I went to summer school each year so I could graduate early.
I applied to Yale, and got rejected. Yet, I had better grades and credentials than another student who was accepted to Yale. It's all a crapshoot when you are applying with thousands of other students who have done as much as you have. Once I was rejected to Yale, I was certain that I would not be accepted to Harvard. However, as luck has it, they spotted something in me that triggered them to believe I was a good candidate.
I graduated Summa c-u-m (that word is censored) laude. I was on law review, civil procedure trial team, criminal clinical trials, tort trial team.
You can earn great money if you go to a mediocre school, but it will be much much harder, and you must be at the top 5% of your graduating, and there is a chance you may not even reach 6 figures even if that happens. However, the politics at Ivy League Schools works this way: Top students will earn well......WELL over 6 figures because of the name we have stamped on our Degrees. It's not fair, but that's how our world spins round'.
Anyhow, I hope I have helped.
How Do I Get Background Information On Lawyers?
I Need A Descent Lawyer For A Child Custody Case Is There Any Way To Check Lawyers Credentials??? And How Theo Do In Court With Their Cases?
The State Supreme Court and the Bar Association can provide you with a list of complaints on attorneys. But, as far as how well or how often they won such cases is interpretive based different factors:
Available evidence in each case;
Whether the other parent fought for custody;
The quality of the other parent's legal representation; etc.
You need to interview several attorneys and take notes. Don't ask any of them about your case, just what their qualifications are. Get a feel for who you're most comfortable with. Get a list of the complaints on them, and there will be complaints, regardless of how good they are. People who win are not always complete satisfied with their win and file complaints against the attorney.
Pick out 3-4 from those you interviewed than go back and tell them about your case, again taking notes.
None of this time with the attorneys should cost you anything. If they want to charge for it, walk away. After the second round of interviews, choose your attorney from the results.
Can Someone Provide Info On Ga Child Support Guidelines?
I Can'T Find Any Information Pertaining To Custodial Parent Getting Married Accordance With State Of Georgia Child Support Guidelines. I Am Planning To Get Marry Within A Few Months And Would Like To Know By My Getting Marry, How Would This Effect My Daughters Child Support? Will There Be A Decrease In The Child Support I Receive For Them When I Get Marry?
Your new spouse's income can't be included when figuring out child support. The expectation is that you and the other parent are responsible for providing for the child.
However, if you plan to stop working and try to increase child support, the judge might take issue and would probably deny the request to increase child support.
I'm attaching the calculators for Georgia.
What Is A Common Problem You Have With Criminal Attorneys?
No Rants And Raves Please, I Am Doing Research! And Thank You!
Criminal attorneys who have a really contentious relationship with the prosecutor can really hurt their clients.
(When I interned at a prosecutor's office, there was one criminal attorney who was so hated and despised that the prosecutors wouldn't give his clients anything resembling a fair plea offer.)
Many criminal attorneys don't take the time to really learn all of the facts of their case and/or do an independent investigation - without knowing all of the facts, it is more difficult to mount an effective defense.
