Paralegal Aids Seniors

The Enid News and Eagle(Oklahoma) reports on yet another instance of paralegals providing increased access to justice in the United States. This paralegal, like the others, works under the supervision of an attorney, but is clearly given a fair amount of responsibility and independence. She cannot provide advice, but she, like all professional paralegals, can provide valuable information geared to the client’s specific needs. Here is part of the report:

ENID — Judy Clay, Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma senior citizen’s paralegal, will be in Enid to meet with Garfield County seniors who need information on a legal matter or have questions… The session is free. No appointment is necessary.

Legal Aid is a nonprofit law firm providing civil legal services to low-income people and senior citizens. Legal Aid serves 77 counties, accepting cases in the areas of domestic abuse, housing and consumer law and government benefits.
