Pamela the Paralegal: Paralegals Assisting Legal Professionals Affected by Disaster

Pamela the Paralegals reports on her friend and mentor’s, Lyza Sandgren (CanopyLegal, LLC), “program to provide volunteer, experienced support to any legal professional caught in the aftermath of a natural or man-made disaster to meet their deadlines and/or filing commitments when offices and computer equipment are not usable.”  Here’s the short version cribbed entirely from Pamela’s blog (the first link in this blog post takes you to the full report):

Paralegal Relief’s members are primarily independent paralegal businesses willing to provide short-term, courtesy paralegal, docketing, filing and client support to attorneys, law firms of any size, and corporate legal departments, but we welcome any experienced paralegal, attorney or legal assistant who is able to volunteer their time.  Our members have the technology, resources, experience and capacity to provide courtesy, short-term assistance wherever needed.

Please join Paralegal Relief  if you are an independent paralegal, paralegal service, attorney, or legal services provider willing to donate your time to assist other legal professionals in their time of need.  We hope we are never needed, but preparedness is everything in managing a disaster, so if a need does arise, Paralegal Relief will be ready to assist.
