A Resourceful Paralegal Can Handle Any Sticky Situation

Stephanie Elliott-Park, a North Carolina State Bar Certified Paralegal employed by Gray, Layton, Kersh, Solomon, Furr & Smith, P.A. in Gastonia, NC, generously shared this funny photo of her helping out her supervising attorney, Bill Moore, before a trial.

Stephanie said, “This falls under the 1001 things I’ve done as a paralegal, including picking gum off my boss’ pants!”

I know this wasn’t an easy job, especially when you’re in a hurry and changing clothes isn’t an option. All of the gum removal tips I found on the Internet involved ice cubes (or conversely, boiling water), egg whites, peanut butter and dull knives – none of which are usually included in my trial supplies.

What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever had to do as a paralegal?
