Paralegal Associations by State

This list is the result of a lot of time and effort to put it together initially and to maintain it on a constant basis. Please do not copy or reproduce this list. Use the link to refer back to it whenever you need it or to share it with others 🙂 I appreciate you!

Many newcomers to the field may not realize how much support they have or the options they have in their own geographical area, or are interested in other areas due to a potential move, etc. I’ve compiled this list of paralegal associations and other groups that paralegals may be interested in checking out. I have also included in this list groups for legal support staff, legal secretaries and bar association sections.
