It is a responsible and challenging role which necessitates integrity, confidentiality and a non-prejudicial mindset.

Paralegal Jobs

Paralegals are now an important part of the legal system, assisting in the provision of affordable legal assistance to the public. In particular, they help ensure equitable access to legal aid. As clients increasingly expect competitive rates for legal services, the demand for good paralegals remains high.


At Dalton Holmes Gray all our paralegals work under an experienced solicitor’s direct supervision. Acting as a legal administrative assistant, they routinely draft documents, liaise with clients and other legal professionals, conduct interviews and prepare case files. The work performed varies depending on the department and the supervising solicitor.
