Can paralegals perform legal tasks directly for the public?

0

Paralegals are required to work under the supervision of a licensed attorney. Providing legal services to the public by non-attorneys constitutes the unauthorized practice of law for which civil and criminal penalties exist. Paralegals who wish to freelance may contract their services to attorneys or law firms but not to members of the general public.
