An easy checklist to keep track of where to look and whom to contact for graphic evidence is helpful. It will keep you on target to accomplishing the job you were hired to do efficiently.
A “first responder” is a trained and or experienced individual that responds first to an emergency or situation. As a paralegal you are the first response person to the client, answering any questions they might have about the case and where it stands or is moving. A paralegal is also responsible for collecting all pertinent evidence to help prove the case. These two roles hold a crucial responsibility.
