Public Agency Paralegal

Governmental / Municipal / Public Agency Paralegal and Governmental/ Public Agency Legal Document Preparation

A Governmental / Public Agency Paralegal assists an attorney to prepare legal cases. Some common duties of Governmental / Public Agency paralegals include preparing legal documents, conducting witness interviews, investigating facts, performing legal research, drafting pleads and legal briefs, and other tasks to assist the attorney in preparing their casework.

In Governmental/ Public Agency matters, Paralegals and LDA's, known as Legal Document Assistants, cannot give legal advice, represent a client in court, or select, explain, draft, or recommend the use of any legal document to or for any person other than the attorney who directs and supervises the paralegal.

However, in several States, Legal Document Assistants (LDA) can prepare legal documents for people doing their own legal tasks. Please consult with the local paralegal to learn what Governmental / Public Agency paralegal services they are authorized to provide in your legal jurisdiction.

A Governmental/ Public Agency Paralegal working under supervision and direction of an attorney may gather facts, draft legal documents, and compile technical information for the supervising attorney in Governmental / Public Agency issues.
