Skills of an Indispensable Paralegal

There are three kinds of crucial traits that paralegals need to have to be effective and help their lawyers. These traits are dependability, flexibility, and durability.

Dependability. We are all part of a big team. Your lawyer, you, other paralegals, your client, court personnel, all one team trying to accomplish a similar goal. It’s not much different than members of a sports team, and what most of us have learned growing up about teams is that we need to be able to depend on each other; whether we are winning or losing.
