I'm trying to help my sister in law decide a good career choice. She loves to be around middle school age kids but she doesn't want to teach or council them necessarily.
I'm considering earning an associates degree in paralegal. Are paralegals like attorney's assistants? Do the paralegals have long days like the attorneys? What would a typical day be like? Would they only be working with, or assisting, one attorney or several? Any comments or suggestions would be helpful?
I'm interested in becoming one for my career and would like to know what the job's like. Thank you!
I have to do this resume thing. And what are good questions that would be asked to a person who is trying to get a job as a lawyer. Like questions on previous cases or something. Help !

Jose Mario Campos, a 66-year-old San Jose resident, was arrested last week on four counts of grand theft, one count of theft from an elder, and one count of unauthorized practice of law.
Jose Mario Campos worked as a citizenship coordinator for Sacred Heart Community Services of San Jose, a charitable organization. His job at Sacred Heart, a non-profit organization, was to assist clients in filling out citizenship and immigration documents, free of charge. It is against Sacred Heart's policy to collect monies from their clients for any purpose, including fees charged by Citizenship and Immigration Services.
It is alleged that, against Sacred Heart's policy, Campos fraudulently collected thousands of dollars in application fees and donations from Spanish speaking clients who were attempting to become U.S. citizens.
He pocketed clients' monies and failed to file their immigration forms or pay any of the fees charged by federal immigration agencies or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. He told some of them that he was a lawyer, while he told others that he would obtain a lawyer for them.
When clients questioned Campos about the status of their applications, he would mislead them by assuring them that their matters were in progress or that new forms were necessary, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.
If convicted, Campos faces up to six years in state prison. He was scheduled for arraignment yesterday.

I worked for a home health agency for over 2 years. I was placed with several clients which i was not qualified to care for, even though i told them so & they knew it. i turned down 2 job offers out of my area of town, which i stated i wouldn't work in due to distance & it never was a part of town we serviced. before that my hours offered to work continued to decline down to 12 & less per week. after a couple of months of them not calling me for job offer i filed a new yunemployment claim, since i was on one prevuiously which expired due to this being part time work. i won my new claim & now my employer is appealing. i don't have same document as them to arm myself for hearing. i spoke the truth & KNOW the owner & the scheduling coordinator are going to fight it to the bitter end. they did numerous ugly things to try to get me to quit, but i never did, what are the chances of employer winning appeal, since i was never reprimanded, no misconduct & worked with the exception of not going in when sick, due to danger of exposing contageous illness to clients. i also told them of my recent diagnosis of leukemia, which was making me catch a lot of viruses. i'm not disabled . want to emphasize employer started treating me differently after my return from surgery & testing after my diagnosis & again did everything they could do to get me to quit.
