Digital Paralegal Services, LLC® was formed in 2009 by Cathy L. Ribble, ACP as a virtual alternative for specialized paralegal support for attorneys. Our offices are located just north of Oklahoma City.
During a time when outsourcing often means offshore, there is an affordable home-based solution for attorneys who want to reduce costs associated with support staff employees.
Our paralegal team brings you the best in virtual paralegal support on an as-needed contract basis from remote locations throughout the United States.
As professional paralegals, we understand that reputations are on the line, and that breaches can have critical ethical consequences. At Digital Paralegal Services, LLC®, we don’t take that responsibility lightly. We are constantly reviewing new technologies and reports which relate to security concerns in the legal industry. We will discuss our technologies with you at the outset, and you are part of that decision making process.
Our paralegals are professionals who have been trained concerning the confidentiality and ethics standards of the legal industry. As members in good standing with the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA), we are bound by the Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility of that organization. NALA requires a minimum of 5 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) in the area of Ethics for a paralegal’s recertification.
CONFLICT OF INTEREST
At the onset of a working relationship with an attorney-client, we will perform an internal conflict of interest check as to client and cases names provided by the prospective attorney-client. A conflict of interest check will also be performed with any contract paralegal assigned to your files. You will be made aware of any potential conflicts or red flags. In addition, we maintain a Conflict of Interest Policy outlining steps to be taken by a contract paralegal or other support staff should a conflict arise.
FILE AND INFORMATION EXCHANGE
Many of your communications with Digital Paralegal Services, LLC® will occur through email. Documents and files are often shared through a Software As a Service (SAAS) platform such as Dropbox or other cloud-based providers. Your preferences concerning cloud-based services will be discussed, and a plan will be implemented which meets your specifications.
