These are the rules that govern the day-to-day practice of law. They are particularly apt for the practice of litigation. These rules are tested every day in every litigation practice in the state—or they should be. The paralegal profession has a special role to play in providing legal services. Litigation paralegals are entrusted to work with attorneys on a daily basis on matters that can expose attorneys to disciplinary action. They must respond with the highest integrity and responsibility. That responsibility has been recognized in the adoption of statutes that define the qualifications of those people holding themselves out to be paralegals; these statutes also govern how paralegals must perform their duties.

Even in business litigation, emotions run high and the choice of counsel can be a difficult threshold decision. The prospective client has a myriad of questions and concerns, just like a medical patient before major life-threatening surgery. Litigation is also threatening, not only emotionally but financially, and can be the most frightening event in the client’s life.

To paralegals, these rules mean that any communications made that tend to advertise the firm should be carefully reviewed for accuracy. No paralegal should make any contact with a prospective client without the express knowledge and authorization of the firm. On the other hand, if a paralegal is charged to notify a past client that his will should be reviewed, the paralegal is acting within the boundaries of the rules.
