We recognize the definition of a Paralegal as set forth in California's Business and Professions Code, Sections 6450. Attorney supervised tasks performed by our paralegals may include, but are not limited to:
Case planning, development, and management
Legal research and writing
Fact gathering and retrieving information
Drafting and analyzing legal documents
Collecting, compiling, and utilizing technical information to make an independent decision and recommendation to the supervising attorney
Assist in the production of trial notebooks and exhibit books for trial
Enhance trial statements and arguments using the latest trial presentation software
The evolution of the Paralegal's role
The ammendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that relate to electronic discovery and "electronically stored information" or "ESI", went into effect on December 1, 2006. The ammendments included changes and additions to Rules 16, 26, 33, 34, 37, and 45, along with Form 35.
At CopyPro Legal, we believe the ammendments significantly changed the paralegal's role in assisting an attorney review and prepare a case for trial. We have embraced this new challenge and have focused our attention on becoming a reliable resource for attorneys in managing electronic discovery, utilizing the best trial presentation software and ultimately, contributing to our client's ability in giving excellent legal representation.
