LDA Roundtable Discussion - Only Two Spots Left!

Helping Your Clients Be the Best Lawyers They Can Be: Tips to Enhance Your LDA Practice and Successfully Carve Out Your Niche as the Go-To Resource for Do-It-Yourselfers

The LDA Roundtable is right around the corner! Whether or not you are attending the California State Bar’s 82nd Annual Meeting, on September 10-13 in San Diego, you won't want to miss the LDA Roundtable on Friday, September 11 at 6:30 p.m.

The Bar’s daytime MCLE sessions will seamlessly transition into a lively LDA discussion of Helping Your Clients be the Best Lawyers They Can Be: Tips to Enhance Your LDA Practice and Successfully Carve Out Your Niche as the Go-To Resource for Do-It-Yourselfers.

Rarely does the typical LDA client need assistance solely with legal form preparation. They often have a host of questions about both substantive and procedural law. This LDA Roundtable discussion will help you take your LDA practice to the next level by sharing the tools and techniques necessary to turn your document preparation business into a comprehensive self-help legal service.

Professional integrity or client satisfaction? Why should you have to choose one over the other? Learn how to put your paralegal skills to work, providing your clients with exceptional informational and educational services in addition to the mere typing of legal documents. Streamline your practice and boost your own personal efficiency. Increase your revenue by raising prices for enhanced self-help legal services. And best of all, avoid those awkward moments when the client asks (or insists) that you provide legal advice.

You can do all of this – and more – while simultaneously guaranteeing you remain in compliance with all laws governing non-attorney legal service providers. In fact, many of these tools will actually insulate you from even the appearance of giving legal advice, and implementing these practices will help to support a defense should anyone ever question whether you are engaged in the unauthorized practice of law (UPL).

Attendance at the Bar events is not required to participate in ALDAP’s LDA Roundtable. So be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to establish yourself as an experienced professional on the cutting edge of the self-help legal movement. There is no charge to attend the LDA Roundtable, just pay for your own dinner and drinks. The event will take place at El Torito located at 445 Camino Del Rio South in San Diego’s Mission Valley. Seating is limited and we only have two spots left, so be sure to RSVP as soon as possible. For more information or to RSVP, contact Suzanne Ervine at or (619) 567-5176.

ALDAP created the LDA Roundtable as a forum to discuss topics related to the LDA and contract paralegal professions, and to enable self-help legal service professionals to get the answers they need and share their knowledge in a pleasant environment.
