Legal Support Staff

Legal Staff Are Critical to A Successful Case

Like a surgeon in the operating room, Family Lawyers can’t do it all by themselves, they need the support of their legal team. The support staff for the attorney you hire is often as important as the attorney themselves. Generally, there are two type of legal support staff: legal assistants and paralegals.

Legal assistants are sometimes called legal secretaries; however, they have specialized training in basic legal process and document creation.  Paralegals have extensive training (usually a 4-year degree) and experience in drafting complex legal documents, assist in preparing trial exhibits and assist during trial.

This is why at Rosengren, Kohlmeyer & Hagen, Law Office we believe that the paralegals and legal assistants play an important role in our client’s legal matters.
