Our Job Bank Coordinator is in close contact with area law firms and businesses and is able to provide our members with first hand knowledge regarding various job opportunities for paralegals as they become available. If you are an area attorney, firm or business and would like to submit a posting to our Job Bank, contact our Job Bank Coordinator, Kris at email@example.com for details and information.
