Paralegal Services to Portland Area Residents

Through a combination of education, training, and work experience, a paralegal performs “substantive” legal work and is “an integral part of the legal team.” Our Paralegal offers an extensive list of document preparation services: the LIST IS HERE.

Paralegals do not practice law and are prohibited from dispensing legal advice, trying a case in court, or accepting legal fees. Paralegals work hand in hand with lawyers, helping to prepare cases for trial. In their preparatory work, they uncover all the facts of the case, conduct research to highlight relevant case laws and court decisions, obtain affidavits, and assist with depositions and other materials relevant to cases.

Our Paralegal offers paralegal services for residents of Portland. She does everything an attorney does except make court appearances, give legal advice and set fees for legal services. The preparation of Court forms is actually more difficult to draft than you might imagine.
