Paralegal Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Paralegal in Lethbridge:
Be prepared for any document draft pleadings on an urgent basis should there be a custody or family application with deadlines to meet.

Paralegal in Montreal, Quebec:
"Pay attention to the details."
Read and re-read your work. Everything matters and the smallest mistake can end up being a major problem.

Paralegal in Calgary:
"Stress Level."
I wish I had learned to say 'no' easier and earlier. Currently working for 4 lawyers as well as managing several legal assistants, the level of demand on me is higher now than ever. I have also learned to start to take time for myself in order to maintain some sort of balance. The best type of worker is someone who can compartmentalize and prioritize extremely well.
