All of us here at DGR would like to wish all New Jersey paralegals happy Paralegal Day, as proclaimed by Governor Chris Christie.
Paralegals play an important role in the legal system and we often hear attorneys tell us they are only as good as the paralegals who support them.
Here is the full text of the proclamation:
Whereas, the State of New Jersey recognizes the many contributions of paralegals to the legal profession in the Garden State; and
Whereas, it is known that paralegals possess important legal skills and perform substantive legal tasks; and
Whereas, paralegals provide critical legal services to large and small companies, individuals and public entities throughout New Jersey;
Now, therefore, I, Chris Christie, Governor of the State of New Jersey, do hereby proclaim:
October 20, 2017 at Paralegal Day in New Jersey and recognize paralegals as important partners in the delivery of legal services.
