A Paralegal Cannot Give Legal Advice

Posted by Richard Lawson | Oct 09, 2016 | 0 Comments

In life, we all seek the advice of our trusted friends and family members.  People who love us want to help, and their help is often needed.  However, sometimes those who mean well do not have the full perspective to give legal advice. 

Most law firms have at least two paralegals for every lawyer.  Although those people are very knowledgeable, they lack the training and experience to provide specific legal advice.  

A paralegal assists an attorney in the preparation of their cases.  The full weight and responsibility of a person's case fall upon the attorney.  A Georgia DUI Lawyer has an ethical obligation to complete a person's case.  Whereas, a paralegal can never be the primary person handling a legal matter.  

At our office, we are very proud to have the best support staff in Georgia. I could not do my job without the help of others. They can answer basic questions.  However, questions about legal strategy and the long-term consequences of a person's case can only be answered by an attorney.  

All of the staff at the Law Office of Richard Lawson are here to help.  We are here seven days a week.  Let one of our attorneys answer your questions today.
