A Paralegal’s Perspective

Welcome to A Paralegal’s Perspective⚖️

The CCPA is excited to announce our new initiative, where we interview current Paralegals about their profession!

This first months interviewee is none other than our President, Jessica Blessing!

1. What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a Paralegal?

✨The best advice I could give is to always be willing to learn new things. Knowledge is your friend. The more you know, the more you can assist your attorney and help your clients. Also, never be afraid to ask questions if you aren’t sure about how to do something. The best thing I did was surround myself and create relationships with other paralegals and legal assistants that have helped me through the years.

2. How did you discover the Paralegal profession?

✨I found out about the profession because one of my friend’s mom was a paralegal. I was having a hard time trying to figure out what I wanted to do as a profession and so I reached out to be an intern at a local law firm and ended up enjoying it.

3. What is the most interesting type of law to you, and why?

✨The most interesting type of law I do is landlord tenant. It is very fast paced and always seems to be changing especially since the pandemic

4. In your opinion, what makes a ‘good’ paralegal?

✨A good paralegal is an individual that can multitask because you will have many projects coming your way all at once. The individual must also be able to pay attention to the small details and be able to anticipate what the attorney might need. A good paralegal is also one that is willing to learn and not get set in their old ways of doing things.

5. How do you juggle your work/life balance being in such a demanding field?

✨It’s not always easy to juggle but I always try to set some time for myself each day during my lunch to either go for a walk or just get out of the office to feel normal for a bit. I’m a bit of a workaholic so I have to actively tell myself to go and get out of the office to walk away from what I am doing.

6. What is your favorite part about being a Paralegal?

✨My favorite part of being a paralegal is getting the opportunity to help others. Some of these people are dealing with frustrating and horrible situations and as a paralegal I get to help alleviate some of the stress and make a difference to someone’s day.

Thank you for reading, we’ll see you next time! 😄
