From the Paralegal's Desk: Asking Legal Questions

Being a paralegal is an interesting job. It is funny that many times people just hear the word "legal"  and start asking all types of questions about the law and become highly disappointed when I will not answer and explain that I cannot because I am not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice.  What I will explain is that I am more than happy to set an appointment, so they can get those questions answered.  Those limits on what I can and cannot answer are for the protection of the client.  I am not trying to frustrate or annoy.  I want to get them an answer to the question but that answer needs to come from the right person, namely, the lawyer.
