In this Article on The Money Pages, NALPs CEO Amanda Hamilton discusses when you can use a Paralegal instead of a solicitor.

  2. If you need to take someone to court and need assistance with the process

  4. If you need assistance in a matrimonial matter

  7. To assist you with any welfare matter
  8. To assist you in a housing matter
