Benefiting from Paraprofessionals in Your Law Firm

By One Legal

In the past few years, there has been a lot of buzz in the legal community about paraprofessionals and the ways they can enhance a law practice. For the uninitiated, a legal paraprofessional is someone who is trained to perform certain legal tasks but who is not licensed to practice law. 

Of course, we should take a moment to distinguish between a paraprofessional and a paralegal. While paralegals are obviously a type of paraprofessional, the paraprofessionals we are discussing in this article are a bit different.
