Paralegal vs. Attorney at Law

Legal assistant must always remember that as part of the legal career they are needed to maintain challenging ethical standards. The following three “keynotes” are of special benefits to paralegals.


#1 Paralegals are not attorneys and thus cannot give law advice, sign court records, or appear in judge on behalf of a client. To do so is the illegal practice of law, a offense in most states.


#2 Attorneys and their employees must respect the privacy of the client-attorney connection. You must treat anything you understand as a paralegal as confidential and not talk about it with anyone- even your partner or other family member.


#3 Clients assume their attorneys and employees to be loyal to them. thus, if you switch employers, you must alert your new employer to any situation with which you were included while working for your former firm. Not to do so means running the risk of developing a issue of interest for the company.
