New York Legal Assistant Handbook


A "How To" Practice Guide for New York Legal Assistants.


This handbook is used exclusively by New York Paralegal students, graduates and members of the New York Legal Community.


Originally published by James Publishing, the New York Legal Assistant Handbook is continually updated and revised by New York Paralegal Press.


The handbook focuses on procedure, not theory.  Most legal practice guides contain confusing "legalese" and lengthy case analysis. New York Legal Assistant Handbook is different, because it tells you what to do and how to do it - in plain English.


Used exclusively now by New York Paralegal students and graduates, written by a top-notch team of New York Legal assistants, attorneys and paralegal educators, New York Legal Assistant Handbook provides concise explanations of substantive law and practical "how-to" advice covering a broad range of important legal subjects.


New York Legal Assistant Handbook provides over 1000 pages of New York-based practice advice and legal forms that will help you work independently, confidently and accurately in the following legal areas:
