A well-respected supervising attorney who now is a paralegal educator lets paralegals know what law firms look for in their paralegal staff in terms of time and work management, quality assurance, interaction with various segments of the office and much, much more.

Further, this publication fully addresses such important issues as finding the right paralegal job, producing high-quality work, understanding billable hours, dealing with office politics, asking for a raise and advancing in a paralegal career.
