As a paralegal with 25+ years of work experience, I am often asked why I decided to become a paralegal and what I like the most (and the least) about my profession. While everyone’s response to these inquiries will likely be different, there will probably be some common threads. We know that not all paralegal jobs, or job markets, are created equal, but many of the opinions expressed in these two articles seem to be fairly accurate. For me, the best things about being a paralegal far outweigh the worst and I cannot imagine doing anything else!
