So what is the difference between a lawyer and a paralegal in Anoka County? A lawyer is an individual who has been admitted to practice law in a particular jurisdiction. They are licensed by the state bar association to provide legal advice and represent clients in court proceedings. A paralegal is an individual who assists lawyers with legal research, document preparation, client interviews, case management, and other tasks related to legal proceedings.
Paralegals are not licensed by the state bar association but must be certified by an accredited paralegal program. I have worked with two Martine Law attorneys, Xavier and Rhiley, in the past in different family court cases. Both Xavier and Rhiley were knowledgeable about the law and provided excellent legal advice. They were also able to explain complex legal concepts in a way that was easy to understand.
