In continuing series of articles about the legal assistant occupation, William Blanchard, Esq. reviews the emerging trend of paralegal "paraprofessionals"

William B. Blanchard, Attorney at Law (N/A:N/A)

Given the high percentage of self-represented parties in courtrooms around the country, some advocates believe regulated legal paraprofessionals can help narrow the access-to-justice gap.”

— William "Bill" Blanchard, Real Estate Lawyer

ST. CHARLES, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, December 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Continuing the publication of his articles on legal assistants in the law office, Illinois-based real estate attorney William Blanchard has issued an article on the emerging "paraprofessionals" within the legal assistant occupation. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Mr. Blanchard at https://williamblanchardblog.blogspot.com/

There is an evolving group of Paralegals that ascend the ranks to act almost like attorneys, similar to Nurse Practitioners who in many cases diagnose and treat health conditions. In civil law cases, there are proposals pending (or already implemented in certain States, as explained below) to address the day-to-day legal need of those unable or unwilling to hire a full-fledged Attorney. This includes the commonplace legal needs of low to moderate-income people by authorizing limited practice by licensed non-lawyers, now known as “paraprofessionals.” This is easy to understand. Many procedures or applications are difficult to understand for “normal” people who are not exposed to them on a daily basis. For example, even forms provided by Courts to make certain filings simpler and possibly enable people to file the forms or applications themselves without the assistance of an Attorney are quite difficult to understand that at least some explanation is still required. This concept has been gradually gaining acceptance. Unlike Paralegals, such paraprofessionals provide services without the direct supervision of an attorney. At this point, two state supreme courts have embraced the “licensed legal technician” concept, and other jurisdictions are closely monitoring its viability.

Given the high percentage of self-represented parties in courtrooms around the country, some advocates believe regulated legal paraprofessionals (charging lower fees) can help narrow the access-to-justice gap. That may one day be the case, but the paraprofessional model and its efficacy in addressing this disparity remain unproven, and ethical rules prevent such a system at least at present.

Washington State pioneered the “limited license” model. In 2013, after years of study, the Washington State Supreme Court adopted the concept of the “Limited License Legal Technician” (LLLT) to perform specific legal services in the area of domestic relations. LLLTs are subject to stringent requirements, which include obtaining an Associate’s degree or higher and completing additional specified coursework; performing 3,000 hours of Paralegal work; passing three law and ethics exams, as well as a character and fitness review. Further, they must also complete a licensing program, satisfy financial responsibility requirements, as well as continuing legal education, and meet malpractice insurance requirements. LLLTs are subject to rules of professional conduct and a disciplinary process similar to those that apply to attorneys. The Board that oversees the LLLT program is now considering expanding the subject matter areas in which paraprofessionals may practice to include consumer debt law.

Several other U.S. States are now following this example. The scope of permissible work for “limited license” paraprofessionals differs under these various models that have been proposed. It generally includes assistance to clients in understanding legal proceedings and completing court forms and other form documents, but does not include appearing for a client in court or at depositions, or taking on complex legal matters. For example, LLLTs in Washington currently may not represent a client in mediated negotiations, but they may do so in Utah.

One of the main reasons for this development is the realization that there is massive need for some form of representation in civil law areas for vast numbers of the population that are attempting self-representation due to limited access to attorneys (mostly due to financial restraints). This is in spite of legal aid societies as well as significant pro bono attorney services. A large number of individuals continue to represent themselves in these areas and could benefit from paraprofessionals.

This access-to-justice disparity has prompted State Bars and court systems to promote other forms of nonlawyer assistance to pro se parties, including courthouse navigators and facilitators (examples are Arizona, New York, California, and Washington), and legal document preparers (Arizona, California, and Nevada). Many other States are looking into other forms of permissible assistance (“judicially-authorized-and-regulated legal service providers”) to help address the problem of unmet legal needs.

In general, Paralegals are qualified to perform their responsibilities by completing an educational program, receiving training on the job, or through actual work experience. They do not undergo the rigorous training of Attorneys, nor are they licensed like attorneys. Paralegals sometimes perform “legal” work that otherwise would be done by attorneys. However, the supervising Attorneys remain fully responsible for any legal work delegated to a Paralegal and must always supervise the Paralegal’s work. There are several different types of Paralegals, the designation depends upon the required education and training. Examples are:

“Certified Paralegal”

A Certified Paralegal is a Paralegal who has completed the voluntary certification process of a professional association by developing a specified level of professional competency. The various accreditation bodies include: The National Association of Paralegals (NALA) which awards the designation of CP (Certified Paralegal) and CLA (Certified Legal Assistant) to those who meet their specific requirements and complete the competency examination. NALA also governs certain Advanced Specialty Certifications (CLAS) programs, and there also exist certain state-specific advanced competency exams.

“Registered Paralegal”

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) awards the designation Registered Paralegal (RP) to persons who have met its requirements, which requires passing a specific competency examination known as the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam (PACE).

“Professional Paralegal”

The National Association for Legal Professionals (NALS) awards the Professional Paralegal (PP) certification designation which reflects a proficiency in procedural law, substantive law and an overall commitment to a higher standard of conduct and professionalism. NALS' Professional Paralegals may distinguish themselves further by earning Specialty Certifications in various substantive law areas.

While the job outlook for Paralegals is bright, this may adversely affect Attorneys, whose work will migrate as much as technical and ethically possible to Paralegals.”

— Richard A. Kranitz, business attorney

GRAFTON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, December 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wisconsin-based lawyer Richard Kranitz has published the final article in his four-part series on the paralegal profession. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Mr. Kranitz at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

The Paralegal Role in the Legal Profession

In general, Paralegals are qualified to perform their responsibilities by completing an educational program, receiving training on the job, or through actual work experience. They do not undergo the rigorous training of Attorneys, nor are they licensed like attorneys. Paralegals sometimes perform “legal” work that otherwise would be done by attorneys. However, the supervising Attorneys remain fully responsible for any legal work delegated to a Paralegal and must always supervise the Paralegal’s work. There are several different types of Paralegals, the designation depends upon the required education and training. Examples are:

“Certified Paralegal”

A Certified Paralegal is a Paralegal who has completed the voluntary certification process of a professional association by developing a specified level of professional competency. The various accreditation bodies include: The National Association of Paralegals (NALA) which awards the designation of CP (Certified Paralegal) and CLA (Certified Legal Assistant) to those who meet their specific requirements and complete the competency examination. NALA also governs certain Advanced Specialty Certifications (CLAS) programs, and there also exist certain state-specific advanced competency exams.

“Registered Paralegal”

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) awards the designation Registered Paralegal (RP) to persons who have met its requirements, which requires passing a specific competency examination known as the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam (PACE).

“Professional Paralegal”

The National Association for Legal Professionals (NALS) awards the Professional Paralegal (PP) certification designation which reflects a proficiency in procedural law, substantive law and an overall commitment to a higher standard of conduct and professionalism. NALS' Professional Paralegals may distinguish themselves further by earning Specialty Certifications in various substantive law areas.

Paralegal Work Assignments

Paralegals can be delegated any task normally performed by a lawyer, as long as the lawyer supervises the work (except those specifically proscribed by law). For example, Paralegals can review and organize client files, conduct factual and legal research, prepare documents for legal transactions, draft pleadings and discovery notices, interview clients and witnesses, and assist at closings and trials. But Paralegals (and their supervising Attorneys) must always avoid the “unauthorized practice of law.” Generally, Paralegals may not represent clients in court, take depositions, or sign pleadings. In addition, Paralegals may not establish the attorney's relationship with the client or set fees to be charged, and may not give legal advice to a client.

The continued usage of Paralegals in the profession is also a mandate of pure economics. Paralegals significantly reduce attorney burden and costs. In many instances it affords the practitioner the ability to lower legal fees in certain practice areas. They are also extremely valuable in their ability to maintain increased client communication and contact which further enhances client satisfaction and customer service. Paralegals also are of tremendous economic value to the law firm or office, as their hourly time spent on individual cases may be billed to the client separately, and at lower rates for the clients. Such staff may increase client satisfaction and provide a significant additional income stream for the law practice if managed effectively. Additional benefits to the firm as well as the community is the usage of Paralegals in Pro Bono activities and services. Paralegals enhance the ability of law firms to provide significantly more pro bono legal services as they could have through attorneys alone.

Supervising Attorneys remain ultimately liable for Paralegal work

As in every aspect of the practice of law, utilizing Paralegal services comes with corresponding ethical considerations for the attorney or firm. Attorneys are ultimately responsible for the work product of Paralegals. Even more, Attorneys are also responsible for the ethical conduct of the Paralegals whom they employ. Any transgressions by the Paralegals may subject the Attorney to professional discipline. This is due to the fact that Paralegals are not directly subject to any rules of professional conduct promulgated by courts, legislatures, or government agencies, the (supervising) Attorneys are. However, Paralegals who are members of national and/or local Paralegal associations are required to follow the ethical codes of those associations.

Billing issues for Paralegal Work

As pertains to fees and compensation, a Paralegal's substantive legal work (i.e., that which is not clerical) may be billed directly to the client just as an attorney's work is billed, or considered in setting a flat fee just as that of an attorney's work. Attorneys may compensate Paralegals based on the quantity and quality of their work and the value of that work to the law practice. Paralegal compensation, however, may not be in any way based on a contingency, by advance agreement, or on the specific outcome of a particular case. In addition, Attorneys may not split any legal fees with Paralegals nor compensate Paralegals for the referral of legal business. They are also not permitted to be a partner or shareholder in a law firm.

Where to get Paralegal Education?

As previously mentioned, the educational programs for Paralegals widely vary. These programs may or may not be approved or accredited. Those educational programs that are affiliated with a college or university may offer Associate's degrees, Bachelor's degrees, Master's degrees, and/or certificates, which may be classified as undergraduate or post-baccalaureate certificates. Proprietary schools generally offer certificate programs. Educational programs are also available via The American Association for Paralegal Education (AAfPE), NALS – the Association of Legal Professionals, the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA), the National Association of Paralegals (NALA), and the American Alliance of Paralegals (AAIPI) have developed accredited curriculum.

Conclusion

Paralegals play an indispensable role in the legal profession, and if the predictions are correct, that indispensable role will continue to expand as economic pressures force law firms and businesses to become ever more cost-effective. While the job outlook for Paralegals is bright, this may adversely affect Attorneys, whose work will migrate as much as technical and ethically possible to Paralegals. Just as a doctor’s workload may in part be handled by nurses or nurse practitioners, a lawyer’s workload will end up where it is most cost-effective (subject to professional and ethical rules). The only constant in life is change, and this is just another example of how times are changing. The drum computer has to a large extent replaced the drummer in a band or studio recording. The remote-controlled drone has in part replaced the fighter pilot. The taxi driver may soon be replaced by Google’s or Uber’s self-driving cars. Maybe these changes are just inevitable as the legal profession overall is adapting to the new economy.

Centra Homes Breaks Ground on 40-home Development in Ramsey Minnesota

Coon-Rapids based Centra Homes has broken ground on a new 40-home housing development in Ramsey as part of the city’s larger COR (Center Of Ramsey) project.

We are excited that this housing project will allow Ramsey to grow, delivering a market to support the amenities our residents’ desire. We can’t thank Centra enough for being part of our future.”

— John LeTourneau, Mayor of Ramsey Minnesota

RAMSEY, MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Cottages at the COR project is a key component to help the city of Ramsey deliver a ‘live-work-play’ community in a revamped downtown near US highways 169 and 10

Coon-Rapids based Centra Homes has broken ground on a new 40-home housing development in Ramsey as part of the city’s larger COR (Center Of Ramsey) project. Centra plans to deliver the new two-story homes in 2019 as a key component of Ramsey’s aggressive redevelopment effort spanning 300 acres near the Northstar Commuter Rail Station.

Dubbed the Cottages at the COR, the project focuses on executing on Ramsey city planners’ goal of transit-centered, walkable urban living.

“A lifestyle offering of housing inventory is necessary for our live-work-play vision to work. It will help us grow a market for the amenities that our residents are asking for,” said Ramsey Mayor John LeTourneau.

The project is the latest addition to the COR, joining projects already under construction including a senior housing complex and expansion of a thriving industrial park. City planners are excited to continue working with Centra to add single-family housing to the COR.

“Centra has been excellent to work with. They are a quality builder who understands the broader vision and wants to make sure their project fits,” said Ramsey Community Development Director Tim Gladhill.

Gladhill notes that the city’s housing strategy was driven by listening to residents and understanding their wants and needs via community meetings.

“We had two large ‘must-haves’ emerge from our feedback sessions. Housing must be affordable to a demographic that already exists and meet the demand for detached town homes with low maintenance,” Gladhill said.

Cottages at the COR
Sitting on just over four acres, the 40 new two-story single family homes will be located on private roads and offer two-car garages and shared services like lawn care and snow removal. The homes will be located approximately a half mile from the Northstar Commuter Rail station and situated within walking distance of trails, parks and an amphitheater. Retail shopping and other services will be located nearby.

“This project links access and amenities to an already thriving community. Ramsey city planners have been great partners and we are excited to help them realize their vision”
Dale Wills, Centra Homes Founder and President

Affordable New Construction
The new homes are expected to be offered at a price point that will be favorable to first-time homebuyers, blended families and empty nesters. To meet the diversity of needs for these groups Centra Homes plans to offer three different floor plans. Buyers will have various options to select for each floor plan, though one item will be standard to all of the homes– a front porch lining a public road.

“Home and neighborhood design are very important to a sense of community. The layout of homes including front porches introduces that synergy and augments walkability, a feeling of safety and better interactions.” — Tim Gladhill, Community Development Director, Ramsey Minnesota

Timing
Centra plans to work on grading this fall and begin construction in the spring 2019, with homes available in the summer. Home pricing and sales will begin in March. Interested buyers can monitor progress at the Centra Homes website.

“We are excited that this housing project will allow Ramsey to grow, delivering a market to support the amenities our residents’ desire. We can’t thank Centra enough for being part of our future.”

YOUR HOME SOLD GUARANTEED OR I'LL BUY IT*
To discuss the sale of your home, call Rudy at 626-789-0159 and start packing!

6 BIG REASONS TO CALL OUR TEAM TO SELL YOUR HOME:

1.) WE HAVE BUYERS IN WAITING
We have 25,127 buyers in our database looking for a home in the area. It is likely that the buyer for your home is already in my database – Your home may already be sold!

2.) YOUR HOME WILL SELL FOR $12,000 MORE*
We sell our clients homes for an average of 3.1% more money compared to the average area agent. On a $400,000 home, that's an extra $12,400 more money in your pocket.

3.) YOUR HOME WILL SELL 3 TIMES FASTER
We sell our clients homes on average in only 29 days while the average area agent sells theirs in 87.9 days.

4.) WE SELL MORE HOMES
In fact, we sell over 20x more homes than your average agent. Because we sell so many more homes than our competitors, financially there are extra things we can do for you that other real estate agents and brokers don't offer: Your home will get far more exposure, Your home will be exposed to buyers in a much larger area nationally and internationally, Your home will sell fast and for top dollars because of our unique and exclusive consumer programs.

6) PROVEN EXPERIENCE… PROVEN RESULTS

CVR Medical Provides TUV Safety Testing Update

CVR Medical Corp. (OTCQB:CRRVF)

DENVER, NC, USA, December 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

CVR Medical Corp. (CVM.V) (TSXV: CVM) (OTCQB: CRRVF) ("CVR Medical”) a Canadian listed and US based healthcare company in the medical device sector announces that its patented, disruptive Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS) has passed the IEC 60601-1-2 edition 4, General Requirements for Basic Safety and Essential Performance – Electromagnetic Disturbances conducted by TUV Rheinland of North America. TUV Rheinland of North America, is one of the leading providers of product safety certifications worldwide, covering an assortment of items such as medical devices, home appliances, audio/video products, medical products, textiles and telecommunication equipment. This testing is required for the CSS’s subsequent De Novo submission to the FDA for US market clearance and will show that the device is compliant with all IEC 60601-1-2 EMC requirements. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), based in Geneva, Switzerland, publishes the 60601 series of technical standards that allow medical device developers to demonstrate the safety and essential performance of their medical equipment. Upon completion of EMC testing, TUV North America started IEC 60601-1 safety testing which includes, software and hardware validation , fire and electrical safety and mechanical failure. As announced, CVR’s previous guidance relating to FDA submission remains unchanged for Q1 2019.

In speaking to CVR’s VP of Program Management & Product Development, Lewis Crenshaw, the TUV engineer stated “CVR’s team did a tremendous job preparing documentation and hardware for IEC 60601-1-2 EMC safety testing. This allowed the TUV team to quickly and efficiently tackle the testing, review technical documents and draft and sign the EMC test report during the busiest time of our year.”

Tony Robinson, CVR Medical’s Chief Operating Officer stated, “This represents one of the final hurdles standing between CVR and the FDA submission that we have been working so diligently towards. Many companies are significantly delayed by requirements such as EMC, but thanks to the thoroughness of the CVR engineering team and open dialogue which TUV provided, we have been able to maintain our momentum toward our objectives. Working with TUV has been the epitome of efficiency and effectiveness, even during this extraordinarily busy time. We know that when our CSS device is placed into the clinical setting we are holding ourselves to the industry’s highest standard of electrical safety.”
