Paralegals Are Trained To Assist Lawyers
They know how to research law records, titles to property, how to research criminal records, how to draft contracts and agreements, etc.
The one think they cannot do is practice law.
However, it is legal for you to pay a paralegal to do certain work for you as you phrase your request properly; so they cannot be charged with practicing law.
The way to go about this is to simply call a freelance paralegal in your State and tell him or her that you would like to see any laws or cases pertaining to the issue you are concerned about.
Just make it clear you are not asking for legal advice or “representation.”
You will pay just a fraction of what you would pay an attorney.
Even if you ultimately need a lawyer to handle the matter, the preliminary work done by the paralegal could save you many hours of expensive attorney fees.
How To Get Free Legal Aid?
Low income families can get details about free legal aid by contacting your local legal aid society.
Or, you can get details about free legal aid by writing to:
The Office of Public Affairs, Legal Services Corporation, 750 First Street, NW, 11th Floor, Washington, DC 20002 or LSC.gov.
Use Ready-Made Contracts To Save Money
Instead of paying a lawyer big bucks to draw up contracts or agreements, most contracts you will need can be bought at stationery or office supply stores.
You can even buy inexpesive computer software containing dozens of ready-made documents.
These forms include wills, leases, bills of sale, promissory notes, etc.
You will need a lawyer if the contract is complicated, or you are dealing with a sneaky person.
Or, his lawyer or advisor is one.
