Independent Contractor or LDA

Now here's where it gets interesting. In referring to the Title of this Informative Article you'll note we used the word 'Business Opportunity'. In examining the job duties/descriptions of the PL/LA you can easily see that while there is an inherent benefit to any law firm to hire a well versed PL/LA that's capable of handling all of these various functions, it's very easy to see how just having those qualifications and abilities can help you in your own PL business, check out becoming your own LDA or Document Processor. Using your new found career you can, if you'd like, 'work for hire' or Independent Contractor.

This method has one distinct advantage over working at one Law Firm as a steady PL. This method comes in the form of multiple contacts and networking. By being an independent contractor you would be performing these tasks for a wide range of legal firms and you would be building a credible list of contacts in this field that you could capitalize on at a later date with other business ventures. This also goes to Career Protection as in our recent article on Defense Against Robotic AI replacement, Creativity is your best weapon for stability.

Realistic Opportunity vs False Expectation

Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) in conjunction with THORNHILL Educational Systems provides you with some unique resources to expand your thinking and improve your career building efforts. We provide some very advanced avenues you can use that you won't find in one place on any site of this kind, anywhere. One of our recent graduates was Gorky Jordan, who just graduated from both the Paralegal and LDA (Legal Document Assistant) courses at LAVC went out and immediately opened his own business, (see Gorky's Full Paralegal - LDA course Review). What Gorky did in short was to 'Start Earning' while students at other colleges are 'Still Learning' and STILL SPENDING. The Low Enrollment Fee, Easy Payments, Extremely FAST Graduation Period (7 Months for PL) and only a few weeks to complete the LDA, allows our students to get a jump start on a career FAST.
