What Makes a Good Paralegal?

Whether you work with Velawcity Legal Support Services or decide to hire your own paralegal, we wanted to share some advice on what you should consider when hiring a paralegal, whether virtual or not.

Your first consideration is likely to be whether you need an entry level or experienced paralegal and in which practice area you need support.  Once that decision is made, here are some things to consider:

The general traits of every successful paralegal, regardless of skill level or practice area, are being detail-oriented, proactive, thorough, and the ability to prioritize and juggle tasks.  Additionally, he or she will have strong organizational and communication skills, as well as a professional understanding of the line between legal and non-legal advice.

Experienced paralegals also possess value-added knowledge and skills that will allow he or she to hit the ground running so that their contribution will add immediate productivity to the legal team, without having to expend time on training.

Aside from questions regarding his or her particular knowledge and expertise, below are some Important questions to ask when interviewing a virtual paralegal:

  • What systems do you use to create an efficient, and preferably seamless workflow?
  • How do you securely share files?
  • Will I be assigned paralegal to request project assistance and questions?
  • What is the experience level and expertise of the assigned paralegal?
  • What is your typical turn-around time?
  • What is your availability?
  • How entrenched in my practice can you become?
  • What is your level of expertise in specific practice areas?
