As professionals, Paralegals at all levels of experience are offered opportunities to play key roles on our client teams. Goodwin Paralegals work side-by-side with attorneys to provide high-quality, cost effective legal services on each of our matters. They add value through experience, advising on how to best approach tasks at hand. The paralegal management team works closely with each paralegal to understand their career goals and objectives, and helps them achieve those through targeted staffing and training.
Members of Goodwin’s Paralegal team play a critical role in the Firm’s efforts to provide high-quality legal services cost-effectively. Our Specialists, Senior Paralegals and Paralegals demonstrate creativity and thought leadership, each having developed expertise in their practice area.
