I will conduct United States Legal research regarding any legal issues that you may have. I am knowledgeable and experienced in conducting the following types of law: Enacted law, Common law, Case law, Administrative law. All of the sources that I use for my research are free to the public. This means that to find the answers to your legal issues, I will conduct research using the following free available resources on the internet for legal research purposes: Findlaw For Legal Professionals, Google Scholar, Justia Legal, Legal Information Institute by Cornell University, Casetext, Public Library of Law, State statutes, and Federal statutes United States codes. I am knowledgeable and have experience using the legal databases known as Westlaw and LexisNexis. I am knowledgeable in researching United States law. I am not experienced in researching law in countries other than the United States. NOTE: I am not a licensed lawyer. I am a paralegal graduate. With that being said, I cannot give you legal advice. I can only research what the laws are and what the law says. I do not have a law degree, a bar number, and I did not attend law school. The legal research I perform is for educational purposes only. If you need to seek legal advice, you should always go to a licensed attorney. Anyone who gives legal advice without an actual active Bar number, commits the Unauthorized Practice of law.
Thanks to my paralegal education, I have knowledge in conducting legal research in the following legal matters: Family law, Criminal Law, Tort Law, Medical Malpractice, Real Property Law, and Estate Law. I can also conduct research in Commercial and Contract Law.
I am a paralegal graduate who is passionate about the law. I have gained the skills, knowledge and confidence necessary to help you with your legal research needs. I understand what it means to work hard, and I have had to work hard most of my life to achieve my goals. When I was a child, I was also diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, but my physical limitations will not hinder me from becoming a valuable team player in helping you in your research quest. My coursework, along with a former internship in 2012-2013 with an amazing attorney, Ms. Carey Ewing J.D., have given me my knowledge of Family, Civil Litigation, Medical Malpractice, Criminal, Estate and Tort Law. I am experienced in researching case, common, and enacted laws. I was also very fortunate to have a one year internship with Legal Aid of North Carolina in 2011-2012. My duties at Legal Aid ranged from helping with Domestic Violence cases, to assisting in Family Law and Estate matters. I am knowledgeable in the use of MS, MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Spreadsheets, Westlaw, and Lexis-Nexis. I am interested in working in Family, Disability, Personal Injury, Criminal, and Estate Law matters. I am also interested in Civil Litigation. I am also passionate about rights concerning people with disabilities, women and Domestic Violence, and children in the Foster Care system. I have a strong work ethic and I am confident my ability to thrive under pressure will surpass your expectations. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Jennifer L. LaRocco
