paralegalDear Attorney:

How often have you wished you had a “right arm” – someone to assist you with your heavy caseload?

How often have you sought out ways to increase your productivity without substantially increasing the costs of providing efficient and expedient services to your clients?

No doubt, QUITE OFTEN!

The additional assistance you have been seeking is available through the legal support services described on this page. These services are provided on an “as-needed” basis, thus enabling you to expand your practice in a cost-efficient manner.

Moyer Paralegal Services, Ltd.  offers attorneys the option of having paralegal services without the necessity of hiring an employee. Freelance or contract paralegals are self-employed paralegals that perform work for attorneys on a contract basis. They can perform the same services as in-house paralegals but do so from a remote location (See Virtual Paralegals) or from a temporary office within the law firm. Contract paralegals can work on a specific case, fill in for paralegals that are on vacation or temporary leave or perform specific paralegal services.

Virtual Paralegals are contract paralegals that work online from another location to perform specific paralegal duties for the attorney. The paralegal services offered by virtual paralegals include document preparation and legal research. By using a virtual paralegal, the attorney can bill the client for the paralegal’s time without spending the attorney’s resources hiring and training a new employee. Virtual paralegals offer various paralegal services to attorneys and law firms.

A small sample of the many services we provide to attorneys only:
• Investigate and gather the facts of a case
• Conduct research on relevant laws, regulations, and legal articles
• Organize and maintain documents in paper or electronic filing systems
