On behalf of Carolyn Bekhor, I will provide you with more information regarding the potential career you may have in the paralegal field. According to the California Business and Professions Code section 6450. (a) a paralegal is a person who is qualified by education, training, or work experience, who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, or government agencies, assists an attorney and lastly is working under the attorney’s supervision.

I would also like to inform you that since you indicated that your dream was to be able to provide a “direct” service to impoverished clients who need advice on business contracts that also cannot be attained as being a paralegal means that you cannot advise your clients on any type of legal issues for that is the job of a licensed attorney. You may want to reconsider this career as it does not fully reflect your interests, instead, you might want to pursue the career choice of being a legal document assistant. As found in the California Business and Professions Code 6400 (c.) a legal document assistant is someone who provides self-help legal services to those individuals who representing themselves. These individuals are typically impoverished as they cannot afford an attorney to represent themselves in court or help them fill out specific documents. So by being a legal document assistant, you are able to those who are in need. The requirements to register to become a legal document assistant are found in California Business and Professions Code section 6402.1 but they are the same as a paralegal’s requirements excluding the experience under an attorney. Thus, making you eligible to become a legal document assistant, all you would need to do is register with the county clerk in the county which you work which will be an initial fee of $175 and post a $25,000 bond as found in California Business and Professions Code code 6405. On behalf on Carolyn Bekor and the entire firm we wish you the best of luck in your future
