Favorite Internet Resource: I can’t really say there’s any one website that would constitute my favorite – it really depends on what my needs are at any given time. But I’m partial to NFPA’s website, http://www.paralegals.org/, because there are so many great resources there.

Yes, I use LinkedIn to stay up-to-date on the specific litigation practice areas in which I work on files.
