Round Rock Texas Law Firm’s Paralegals Receive Texas Family Law Board Certification

Share Article

Patricia L. Brown & Associates is the first family law firm in Round Rock and Williamson County with two board certified family law paralegals. Experienced, well-trained and competent paralegals can reduce client cost while speeding client cases.

Patricia L. Brown & Associates, a leading divorce and family law firm based in Round Rock, TX, proudly announced that two of its paralegals, Ms. Paula Israel and Ms. Julia Rapp, passed the challenging Texas board certification paralegal examination on the same day. Thus, Ms. Brown’s firm became the first firm in Round Rock and Williamson County with two such board certified family law paralegals.

The firm’s founder and managing partner, Patricia L. Brown commented, “Paralegals play an important role in law firms, handling certain elements of a case which may not require an attorney, thus saving our clients money and accelerating the satisfactory completion of their cases. It is truly a ‘win-win situation’ for clients and the firm”. For example, the firm’s economical DivorceXpress™ offering for uncontested divorces is handled entirely by the firm’s paralegals.

Paralegals must first meet a series of stiff requirements to qualify to take the exam, which is administered by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. The test itself is a challenging 4 hour examination, testing in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of Texas family law matters.

Ms. Brown went on to comment “I am so very proud of Paula and Julia. They put in a great deal of extra time preparing for this examination while continuing to provide the compassionate and expert care of our clients for which we are known. Our motto 'We're Close To You' is not just about geography, it's about how we feel about and treat our clients.”

Ms. Israel has been a paralegal in central Texas for over 20 years, and been with the firm over 10 years. Ms. Rapp has been a paralegal for nearly 10 years, all with Ms. Brown’s firm.
