Our online courses for legal document preparers can increase earning potential immediately. Many FALDP members spend years in paralegal programs only to discover that are no paralegal jobs available, or, even worse, that the paralegal jobs that are available don't pay enough to justify the training required.
Recent graduates of Florida paralegal programs benefit from our online courses because our courses are specific to preparing the exact documents approved by the Florida Supreme court for pro se litigants. Consumers could prepare these forms themselves, but many people quickly discover that the forms are confusing. Frequently, consumers are overwhelmed by the amount of detailed information they must learn in order to complete their legal task.
Smart business people know that there is a direct relationship between the number of products and services offered and potential income. Building multiple and diverse income streams helps entrepreneurs weather an uncertain economy.
