10 things a paralegal is NOT

From the mail bag, I have the following question from a reader:

What are 10 things a paralegal is not? 

Hey, that's a topic worth exploring! Here's my list:


1. Psychics
2. Miracle workers
3. Your mothers (applies to attorneys, clients, opposing counsel and coworkers)
4. Chauffeurs
5. Phonebooks
6. Magicians
7. Personal chefs
8. Bartenders
9. Babysitters
10. Horses (to carry your crap for you).

  5. @Anonymous: Yes, absolutely. I think this is probably the hidden job description for all paralegals.
