The Florida paralegal regulations are contained in Chapter 20 of the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar, a code of professional ethics.
A paralegal is a person with the education, experience and skills to perform some legal tasks under the supervision of an attorney. A paralegal is not licensed to practice law and cannot give legal advice. The supervising attorney is responsible for the quality of the work paralegals produce and any adverse consequences. These general regulations apply to all paralegals, registered or unregistered. Registered paralegals have additional regulations with which they must comply to maintain their status.

“Behind every great lawyer is a great paralegal” is a sentence scrawled on many a magnet and coffee mug. And there’s some truth in the saying, because paralegals aid attorneys in nearly every facet of the legal profession. From drafting motions to summarizing reports of legal precedent, a paralegal can help lighten a lawyer's load tremendously. Like lawyers, paralegals can specialize in certain types of law, such as criminal, corporate, immigration and family. Also known as legal assistants, paralegals’ involvement in cases depends on their employer’s discretion. Some have a high degree of responsibility and autonomy, while others are restricted to narrower roles. The best paralegals are team players who operate behind the scenes. Paralegals work in a variety of settings, but they’re most commonly employed by law firms, government agencies and legal departments at corporations.

I needed to do my immigration forms. I didn’t know where to go or how to begin them. I asked a friend and he referred me to Marcelo Prado who helped me not only with my Immigration forms, but also with the translation of few documents that needed to be certified. Since I don’t speak very well English. I can only thank him for his service. I highly recommend him.
