As a family law paralegal, your role is multi-faceted. You serve as the client confidant, information manager and attorney liaison all at the same time. While many of the issues you deal with on a regular basis will have their similarities, no two cases will be exactly alike - and the emotionally charged nature of the divorce process only adds another layer of complexity. Building processes and procedures that help you to effectively manage your multiple responsibilities will not only help you to become more efficient and effective, but increase your potential for professional growth.
