“…paralegals will work on files, research relevant cases to the ones they are working on, and writing reports. They help the attorney prepare for trial in whatever capacity is expected of them. In many instances, the Paralegal does the entire case work up, and they get paid hourly. The main difference between a paralegal and an attorney is the paralegal can not try a case in court.”
