Marcia Meekins, a paralegal at Rhumb Line, LLC, in Richmond, VA, tells LawCrossing how she got her job:

"My present position is my first paralegal job. While in school, I set up an internship at Boone, Beale, Cosby & Long, a boutique law office. Internships were not a requirement for a degree in paralegal studies; however, I wanted the experience. I worked for attorney Andrea C. Long and performed extensive research, file management, interviewed clients, and assisted with special projects. I did this for approximately eight months. The experience got me into Rhumb Line by way of Lawyers Staffing."
