What documents may I sign?

The general rule for paralegals is as follows:

A paralegal may sign correspondence, including e-mail correspondence, so long as no legal advice is given and the paralegal’s name, title, and either the firm name or the name of her supervising attorney are given.

A paralegal may sign correspondence from an attorney by permission so long as the paralegal’s title is clearly indicated and the letter does not contain legal advice or agreements. If the letter contains legal advice or agreements, the attorney should sign or have another attorney sign by permission.

A paralegal is not allowed to sign legal agreements, pleadings or certificates of service.
