Re: Any paralegals?

I'm not a paralegal. But I was a legal secretary for 8 years. It was stressful as people only came to a lawyer during stressful times. But the firm I worked for was lovely. They treated us well. The one girl I worked for was a trained paralegal. She hated it. It was all research and not for her. That being said the attorneys did all of their own research. lol

I'm a lawyer, and I feel like the job market is much better for (experienced) paralegals than it is for lawyers right now. I love the paralegals at my office -- smart, efficient, and hardworking. And paralegals get paid overtime, which is really nice (attorneys are exempt from OT). You do have to be willing to take direction from/be bossed around by lawyers, though.
