Language barriers within the legal system can have serious consequences. Having a bilingual member on your legal team can help eliminate anxiety and promote understanding. Our remote legal support can supplement your existing legal team. Let our virtual paralegals and legal assistants help you keep in touch with professional contacts and beat deadlines.
Who Is the Virtual Paralegal?
Through formal education, training, and experience, our paralegals have extensive knowledge and expertise in the legal system, including both substantive and procedural law, which qualify them to perform work of a legal nature under the supervision of the attorney. Their job responsibilities outstretch across a broad field of individual practice areas.
At Linguistic Areté, our paralegals perform meaningful procedural legal work as authorized under NALA's Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility, and adhere strictly to the accepted standards of legal ethics, and to the general principles of proper conduct.
Our company's paralegals work for outside attorneys and are responsible for many areas of the law. We can assist your firm in many areas to help facilitate office operations and case management:
- Attendance at Hearings, Meetings and Trials
- Attending Will Executions clients
- Client and Witness Interviews
- Docket Management
- Drafting of pleadings, Briefs and Legal Documents
- Legal Research and Analysis
- Skip Tracing
- Trial /Hearing Preparation
Remember, we perform the same functions as the attorney, except those generally prohibited by the unauthorized practice of law statutes- for example, accepting clients, setting legal fees, giving legal advice, or representing others in court.
Because the law is complex and often ambiguous, our paralegals must be able to think analytically and logically. Our paralegals can recognize and evaluate relevant facts and legal concepts. Our paralegals also have the interpersonal skills to organize, analyze, communicate, and resolve conflicts.
Who is the Virtual Legal Assistant?
Law office administration is part of the duties of our legal assistant. Our legal administrator is the administrative employee of the law firm, who manages the daily operations. This assistant has the skills to handle administrative tasks such as filing papers, answering telephone calls, maintaining, and organizing reference files. The virtual legal assistant is also often in charge of maintaining the schedule of the attorney and communicating with clients, attorneys, witnesses, experts and court personnel to schedule interviews, hearings, meetings, depositions, and trials.
