Virtual Paralegal Job Description

A virtual paralegal is paralegal who performs his or her work responsibilities from a remote or “virtual” location. Virtual paralegals can work from home or from any other place, as long as they have access to a phone, computer, and internet connection. A virtual paralegal is a perfect position for someone who seeks flexibility with his or her time. Virtual paralegals work “off-site” from law firms, but they perform traditional paralegal functions, which can range from drafting documents to filing forms with government agencies to preparing exhibit binders for trial. Paralegals handle a wide variety of tasks to assist attorneys in their practices. However, because virtual paralegals are not attorneys and have not been admitted to the bars of any state, virtual paralegals must always work under the direction of a practicing attorney.

Success Stories

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
