OCTOBER 23, THIS COMING SUNDAY, CELEBRATE THE CONTRIBUTION OF TEXAS PARALEGALS.
Applause to these little-heralded professionals. They are subjected to the same pressures for free legal advice (or even representation) as lawyers and yet are forbidden by law to give that advice or representation. They are worked hard by their employers, and their services save clients significant amounts. Their support function enables lawyers to more cost-effectively represent more people. They necessarily work behind the scenes, and form a vital part of a legal team.
