BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, December 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Continuing a four-part series of articles, in her newest published article Alabama Family Law Attorney Ayn Traylor-Sadberry discusses the emerging "paraprofessionals." The complete articles will be published on the Blog of Ms. Traylor-Sadberry at https://AynTraylorSadberryBlog.blogspot.com

“Paraprofessionals” such as Licensed Legal Technicians or “Limited License Legal Technicians”

There may be an evolving group of Paralegals that ascend the ranks to act almost like attorneys, similar to Nurse Practitioners who in many cases diagnose and treat health conditions. In civil law cases, there are proposals pending (or already implemented in certain States, as explained below) to address the day-to-day legal need of those unable or unwilling to hire a full-fledged Attorney. This includes the commonplace legal needs of low to moderate-income people by authorizing limited practice by licensed non-lawyers, now known as “paraprofessionals.” This is easy to understand. Many procedures or applications are difficult to understand for “normal” people who are not exposed to them on a daily basis. For example, even forms provided by Courts to make certain filings simpler and possibly enable people to file the forms or applications themselves without the assistance of an Attorney are quite difficult to understand that at least some explanation is still required. This concept has been gradually gaining acceptance. Unlike Paralegals, such paraprofessionals provide services without the direct supervision of an attorney. At this point, two state supreme courts have embraced the “licensed legal technician” concept, and other jurisdictions are closely monitoring its viability.

Given the high percentage of self-represented parties in courtrooms around the country, some advocates believe regulated legal paraprofessionals (charging lower fees) can help narrow the access-to-justice gap. That may one day be the case, but the paraprofessional model and its efficacy in addressing this disparity remain unproven, and ethical rules prevent such a system at least at present.

Washington State pioneered the “limited license” model. In 2013, after years of study, the Washington State Supreme Court adopted the concept of the “Limited License Legal Technician” (LLLT) to perform specific legal services in the area of domestic relations. LLLTs are subject to stringent requirements, which include obtaining an Associate’s degree or higher and completing additional specified coursework; performing 3,000 hours of Paralegal work; passing three law and ethics exams, as well as a character and fitness review. Further, they must also complete a licensing program, satisfy financial responsibility requirements, as well as continuing legal education, and meet malpractice insurance requirements. LLLTs are subject to rules of professional conduct and a disciplinary process similar to those that apply to attorneys. The Board that oversees the LLLT program is now considering expanding the subject matter areas in which paraprofessionals may practice to include consumer debt law.

Several other U.S. States are now following this example. The scope of permissible work for “limited license” paraprofessionals differs under these various models that have been proposed. It generally includes assistance to clients in understanding legal proceedings and completing court forms and other form documents, but does not include appearing for a client in court or at depositions, or taking on complex legal matters. For example, LLLTs in Washington currently may not represent a client in mediated negotiations, but they may do so in Utah.

One of the main reasons for this development is the realization that there is massive need for some form of representation in civil law areas for vast numbers of the population that are attempting self-representation due to limited access to attorneys (mostly due to financial restraints). This is in spite of legal aid societies as well as significant pro bono attorney services. A large number of individuals continue to represent themselves in these areas and could benefit from paraprofessionals.

Ms. Traylor-Sadberry notes that this access-to-justice disparity has prompted State Bars and court systems to promote other forms of nonlawyer assistance to pro se parties, including courthouse navigators and facilitators (examples are Arizona, New York, California, and Washington), and legal document preparers (Arizona, California, and Nevada). Many other States are looking into other forms of permissible assistance (“judicially-authorized-and-regulated legal service providers”) to help address the problem of unmet legal needs.

ST. CHARLES, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, December 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Continuing the publication of his articles on legal assistants in the law office, Illinois-based real estate attorney William Blanchard has issued an article on the emerging "paraprofessionals" within the legal assistant occupation. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Mr. Blanchard at https://williamblanchardblog.blogspot.com/

In general, Paralegals are qualified to perform their responsibilities by completing an educational program, receiving training on the job, or through actual work experience. They do not undergo the rigorous training of Attorneys, nor are they licensed like attorneys. Paralegals sometimes perform “legal” work that otherwise would be done by attorneys. However, the supervising Attorneys remain fully responsible for any legal work delegated to a Paralegal and must always supervise the Paralegal’s work. There are several different types of Paralegals, the designation depends upon the required education and training. Examples are:

“Certified Paralegal”

A Certified Paralegal is a Paralegal who has completed the voluntary certification process of a professional association by developing a specified level of professional competency. The various accreditation bodies include: The National Association of Paralegals (NALA) which awards the designation of CP (Certified Paralegal) and CLA (Certified Legal Assistant) to those who meet their specific requirements and complete the competency examination. NALA also governs certain Advanced Specialty Certifications (CLAS) programs, and there also exist certain state-specific advanced competency exams.

“Registered Paralegal”

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) awards the designation Registered Paralegal (RP) to persons who have met its requirements, which requires passing a specific competency examination known as the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam (PACE).

“Professional Paralegal”

The National Association for Legal Professionals (NALS) awards the Professional Paralegal (PP) certification designation which reflects a proficiency in procedural law, substantive law and an overall commitment to a higher standard of conduct and professionalism. NALS' Professional Paralegals may distinguish themselves further by earning Specialty Certifications in various substantive law areas.

Micah Raskin Wants Everyone to Give Back

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin thinks there is a better way to do business and it involves giving back to those who need it most.

NASSAU COUNTY, NEW YORK, USA, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Born in New York, Micah was raised in a musically talented family, playing in bands with his brothers throughout high school. He graduated from Baruch College with a Bachelor’s degree in business administration and began a career that would take him around the world and back. Having seen the world, Micah has learned to live a life of joy by waking up every day passionate about every moment in front of him.

“Choosing happiness in both work and my personal life was the greatest lesson I have ever learned,” explained Micah Raskin. “It’s been the constant throughout my entire life. I help businesses every day realize that their employees will be much happier if they have a sense of purpose in their lives, and often times it starts right at work.”

Micah Raskin challenges everyone he meets to find their passion. This is the ultimate baseline for everything you will do in your life, and when a business or person starts to think about giving back, they have a greater sense of purpose by doing it with passion. Everyone should feel empowered to chase their dreams, and in doing so, you’ll open your heart up to a world of giving you didn’t know existed.

Micah Raskin also reminds businesses to encourage their employees to give their time, not just their pocketbooks.

“Showing up and serving people in person is a life-changing experience that provides you with a deeper sense of purpose,” explains Micah Raskin. “I can’t overstate the importance of giving your time to those who need it the most.”

Over the decades Micah Raskin has partnered with a number of great charities and even started his own, and he often reminds businesses just how important it is to find reputable organizations to give your time and money to. It’s important to find charities that have a vision for the future, like Charity Water. This ensures that your efforts are going to actually help those who need it most.

Whether volunteering at the local soup kitchen, or shelter, Micah Raskin encourages everyone to take the leap of serving, and there is no greater time to start than the holidays.

When Micah Raskin isn’t working with charities, you can find him coaching businesses and touring the world playing poker. To learn more, click here.

Holabird Western Americana Collections' wild, eclectic five-day auction, December 5th-9th, featured 3,500 diverse lots

Chinese Hunan One Tael silver coin weighing 35.6 grams ($6,875).

Unissued capital stock certificate #495 for the Alaska Commercial Company, with a vignette of Russian church and miners ($4,000).

Choice old wood ore car from a mine in Utah, circa 1870s, with great character and “eye appeal” ($2,750).

Watercolor painting of Dayton, Nevada, done in 1984 by artist Jeff Nicholson ($1,000).

Items ranged from a Chinese One Tael silver coin to a 150-year-old Idaho soda bottle to an old wood ore car from a mine in Utah to Marilyn Monroe’s autograph.

This was the second sale in what promises to be an exciting fall and winter season for us.”

— Fred Holabird

RENO, NV, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — RENO, Nev. – An eclectic five-day auction that featured items ranging from a Chinese Hunan One Tael silver coin to a 150-year-old Idaho soda bottle to an antique wood ore car from a mine in Utah to Marilyn Monroe’s signed autograph was held December 5th-9th by Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC, online and in the gallery at 3555 Airway Drive (Ste. 308) in Reno.

The auction was nicknamed “to die for” because it featured a massive offering of token dies from the Northwest Territorial Mint Liquidation, but there were many other items in a wide array of collecting categories, a staggering 3,500 lots in all. Nearly 3,700 people registered to bid online via the platforms iCollector.com and Invaluable.com. The auction grossed a total of $355,825.

“This was the second sale in what promises to be an exciting fall and winter season for us,” said Fred Holabird of Holabird Western Americana Collections. Offered was more of the Ken Prag American stock certificate collection; a Texas token collection; the Joe Elcano Nevada History Collection; and the Ben-Tchahvtchavadze Collection (Native Americana, rugs, weavings, art).

Day 1, on Wednesday, December 5th, was packed with minerals, vintage and antique bottles, tokens from Alabama to Oregon, and a wide selection of numismatics, to include banks, books, catalogs, coins, counterfeit directories, currency, medals, scales and “so-called” dollars – a total of 582 lots for the day. Also in the mix were 67 lots of tantalizing bargains and dealer specials.

Star lots from Day 1 included the Chinese Hunan One Tael silver piece, weighing 35.6 grams ($6,875); and the circa 1866-1869 Idaho City, Idaho soda bottle, from Pioneer Brown & Co. ($2,625). The blob top bottle, just over seven inches tall, had a very rare light green color. It is one of only a few known specimens of a Territorial soda bottle (Idaho was not yet a state then).

Day 2, Thursday, December 6th, contained 663 lots of tokens (from Texas on) and dies. Sold was a token from the White Elephant Saloon in Mobeetie, Tex. ($1,813). The obverse said, “Good for A Drink, Berry & Co., White Elephant Saloon.” The reverse said, “Chas. Peck & Co. / Chicago.”

Day 3, on Friday, December 7th, was a collector’s field day, bursting with 654 lots of general Americana, militaria, political items, postal history items, Wells Fargo & Express memorabilia, cowboy collectibles, firearms, weaponry, saloon, gaming and lots pertaining to Alaska mining.

The general Americana was a virtual entire category unto itself, with autographs, badges, checks, circus memorabilia, firemen collectibles, music items, navigation material, automobilia, outlaw and lawman memorabilia, silverware and flatware, World’s Fair & Expos collectibles and more.

Day 3 highlights included an unissued capital stock certificate #495 for the Alaska Commercial Company, Alaska’s largest rural retailer, with a vignette of Russian church and miners ($4,000); and a group of eleven 1950s-era 25-cent red gaming chips from Dopey Norman’s, one of the first gambling casinos in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, operated by entrepreneur Norman Reinburg ($2,000).

Day 4, on Saturday, December 8th, was jam-packed with 746 lots of mining material, to include artifacts, books, explosives, spoons and geographic sort from Arizona on. A top lot was a stock certificate #380 for Mass Mining Company of Pittsburgh, datelined Pittsburgh 1881 for a copper mine that is believed to have operated in Michigan. The certificate was for 120 shares ($3,375).

Also sold on Day 4 was the choice old wood ore car from a mine in Utah ($2,750). The 1870s-era car was three feet long, about two feet wide and had a payload area of about 11 inches deep. It held about one ton of high grade. Collectors are drawn to ore cars like this because of their tremendous character and “eye appeal”. Plus, they’re 50 times rarer than their iron counterparts.

Day 5, December 9th, featured textiles, Native Americana, jewelry and watches, entertainment industry items, furnishings, sculptures, art, railroadiana, imprinted revenue stamps and more.

Marilyn Monroe’s bold ink signature was presented along with a beautiful black and white photo of the actress, as well as her 1953 payroll card from 20th Century Fox, nicely framed and matted ($1,250). Also, a 1984 watercolor painting of Dayton, Nevada, done by artist Jeff Nicholson, known for his renderings of the high desert of the West, particularly of Nevada, brought $1,000.

A stock certificate for The Silverton Railroad (Colorado), issued in 1904 to Charles Graham in the amount of 996 shares, signed by company president Otto Mears and featuring a train exiting a tunnel vignette, realized $1,125. Also, a fine collection of Indian arrowheads from the Great Basin area of the United States, 67 pieces in all, nicely housed in an octagon case, made $938.

All prices quoted include the buyer’s premium.

Holabird Western Americana Collections’ next big auction is planned for Jan. 25-28, 2019, also online and in the Reno gallery. Anyone owning a collection that might fit into an upcoming Holabird auction is encouraged to get in touch. The firm travels throughout the U.S., to see and pick up collections.

Dov Bechhofer on the FDA’s Announcement to Explore New Digital Health Avenues

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dov Bechhofer is a computer engineer exploring how technology shapes our present and what technological advancements we can expect in the future. Recently, the FDA Commissioner announced the administration would increase its focus on digital services moving forward, which means new potentials for doctors and patients alike.

In order for doctors to unveil new treatments and for patients to have a richer variety of procedural options, they have to first be evaluated for safety by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Patients and doctors are dependent on the administration’s approval, so it’s refreshing to hear that the FDA is taking steps towards digital health contributions that will provide more sophisticated and state-of-the-art services.

Computer Engineer Dov Bechhofer keeps a close eye on emerging tech and he’s confident that the FDA’s decision to explore more digital health resources is something that can and will benefit everyone.

“We live in the future,” Dov Bechhofer says. “We have smart cars, smartphones, smart homes, and now smart cities on the rise. Smart hospitals were bound to come down the line.”

Advances in medical technology and treatments bring faster, more effective results to patients. Digital health also encompasses communication between doctors and patients, and can help to prioritize care for optimal service. Better tracking of patient conditions will make diagnosing and treating ailments easier and will require less dedicated time from busy physicians.

Soon, prescriptions may be filled through a smartphone app instead of patients having to go into a clinic to get checked out. Patients and consumers will be able to use digital health to better manage and track their health far more accurately than they can currently with wearable tech like Fitbits and iWatches.

Apart from that, the FDA is looking into advancements that will hopefully reduce inefficiencies, improve access, enhance quality, reduce costs, and make medicine and treatments more personalized for patients. Current devices will be updated to add digital features and new systems of categorization and storing medical data will be implemented.

“There’s a lot of money going into tech development,” says Dov Bechhofer. “Our devices are updating faster than ever with new capabilities and faster, more complex forms of data transfer unrolled each year. The medical industry can take advantage of this.”

The FDA will advance digital health through an official Digital Health Program that seeks to “better protect and promote public health and provide continued regulatory clarity.” It aims to accomplish this by encouraging collaborations and improving outreach to digital health customers. In addition, they will develop and implement regulatory strategies and policies for new digital health technologies.

The subject of digital health gains momentum as corporations and some of the world’s largest developers create new paths to the market. Some of the topics currently under discussion are wireless medical devices, mobile medical apps, telemedicine, new data systems, cybersecurity and more. With tech focus moving to more advanced machines and powerful systems, the FDA’s actions will be instrumental to the limits and potential of the future’s digital health.
