Lawyers depend on paralegals.
Paralegals perform law-related work under the supervision of a lawyer: analyze legal issues; investigate and evaluate facts; prepare pleadings, contracts, forms, legal memoranda, and other documents; interview clients; assist in case management; and perform other duties. Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, but they are an important part of the legal process.
