PARALEGAL (Former Employee) – Phoenix AZ – June 3, 2014
Every day was a little bit different. You may start with a court hearing, interviewing client, traveling to clients home, assigning cases, meeting with client or assisting in the lobby with possible clients. You learn to listen a lot and be patient. Management had very little connection with paralegals since we work mainly with attorneys. My co-workers become a team when discussing cases and research plus previous experience.
The hardest part of my job was when you are waiting for services or a court date and the client passes away.
The most enjoyable part was helping someone get services that they are in so much need of and seeing them progressing in their life.
Personally rewarding, good benefits
