Columbia, Maryland (PRWEB) April 24, 2014
In order to better serve the growing Spanish community in Maryland, Portner & Shure, one of Maryland’s highest ranked law firms, is now offering free consultations for workers’ compensation cases. All consultations will be offered in both Spanish and English. Native Spanish-speaking paralegals explain the complicated and confusing workers’ compensation legal process with the aid of Portner & Shure’s managing partner, Mr. Jonathan Portner. Mr. Portner is a member of the National Top 100 Trial Lawyers and Million Dollar Advocates Forum and has also recently been recognized in Time magazine’s Excellence in Law. As a way for supporting the Maryland Hispanic community, Mr. Portner offers these workers’ compensation consultations for free.
Many other law firms charge for consultations along with a charge for translating, but Portner & Shure strives to provide the best possible service for clients and members of the local community. Using Spanish-speaking paralegals is an essential part of the consultation and claims process because Portner & Shure’s native Spanish-speaking paralegals have been working in the legal profession for many years. Multilingual paralegals are superior to basic interpreters without legal experience because basic interpreters may be less able to accurately describe the complex workers’ compensation process to a client accurately.
Chrissy Guevara, one of Portner & Shure’s Spanish-speaking paralegals, says: “Having a Spanish-speaking paralegal handle your case is essential. Clients are able to speak with the paralegal with ease since there is no third party to stumble over interpretations. Paralegals have experience with the legal process and work closely with the knowledgeable attorneys to provide the best service to clients.”
Portner & Shure has been an establishment within the personal injury field for over 20 years. They can be contacted via their company website to arrange for a free consultation, or through phone or email.
