Today’s Quote: Paralegal and Lawyers Are Not Us vs.Them

…The successful legal practice requires a team approach between lawyers, paralegals, other staff and clients. The team dynamic is a powerful tool to serve clients and market the practice to potential new clients. No firm or lawyer should ever think of paralegals and staff in terms of “them,” as opposed to the lawyers’ “we.” Inclusiveness of paralegals as key team players will produce better results for all, increase productivity and therefore profitability of the firm. – Excerpt from “Leveraging the value of paralegals” (Wisconsin Law Journal)

Practical Paralegalism loves, loves, loves this quote. When it comes to paralegals and lawyers, there should be no “us” vs. “them.” Both kinds of legal professionals are key parts of the legal team.
