What Do Paralegals Do?
Paralegals in Alberta work in a legal capacity. They act as agents and guiding you with your best interest in mind in various legal settings. Our team provides you with a comparable and more economical service compared to using a lawyer.
Paralegals charge a fraction of lawyer’s fees, which can be a great advantage to those who require legal assistance but are unable to afford the high rates of most lawyers.
In Alberta, they are permitted to practice in Provincial Offences Court, Small Claims Court, Landlord and Tenant Tribunals and many other tribunals and hearings. In addition, Paralegals can assist with completing any applications and to prepare simple documentation. Although individuals and small businesses may be self-represented in many legal matters, assistance by an experienced and licensed paralegal may result in a more competent, successful and less stressful experience.
