Our Paralegals

The governing principle of our training as paralegals has been to create a skill set that enables us to perform tasks outside the courtroom that law school graduates hope to learn as first year associates. In the context of our apprenticeship, we have been taught and empowered to assist clients in all phases of their case.

The work our trained paralegals perform for a client embroiled in a marital dispute begins with: 

  • Helping clients complete their intake form

  • Coordinating either a Zoom or in person consultation

  • Preparing the initial draft of the Summons and Complaint in an Action for Divorce or preparing the Verified Answer of the defendant in an Action for Divorce
