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

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
