In this blog I am teaching attorneys what I most need to learn as a contract litigation paralegal formulating discovery plans. The personal injury case must move along with medical records. The breach of trust cause of action must move along with the production of useful financial records via hardcore discovery techniques. Requests for Admissions, Form and Special Interrogatories, Depositions.

Being a great contract litigation paralegal means being truly interested in the law and legal procedure. The exact details of legal procedure.

Attorneys fill out court forms by looking up the statutes on the forms, that is real attention to detail.
