Paralegal Profile: Melissa K. Hinote

Job Title: Paralegal

Employer: Jared N. Lyles, P.C.; Silverhill, Alabama

Years of Paralegal Experience: 2

Specialty Areas: General practice, including estate planning, personal injury, probate, family law, and business organizations.

Career Highlight: So far, my NALA certification!

Paralegal Practice Tip: Law is a team effort. Be competent in everything paralegals can do, so that the attorney is better able to focus on those things that we cannot do; these efforts will practically guarantee that every team member is utilized for a maximum benefit to both the firm and its clients.

Favorite internet resource: LexisNexis http://www.lexisnexis.com/

Fun Fact: The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich is one of my guilty pleasures. Any woman who is not ashamed to laugh out loud when reading should check out these books!

I met Melissa on Twitter, where she is a frequent tweeter of great resources and commentary. She has also started a new paralegal blog, Paralegalese, where she posts thoughtful articles about working as a paralegal. Check out her latest post, “The Compliment That Wasn’t” and consider adding your comments at her blog. Commenting at blog posts is another great way to either start or be a part of online conversations with other members of the legal community.
