Paralegal Internship

PARALEGAL INTERNSHIP

Looking for 5-10 paralegal students to earn 8-20 internship hours on Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22 from 10:00 – 5:00 p.m.  A possible third day of Saturday, October 28, may be needed as well.  Lunch and drinks will be provided. 

Need students to inventory items in storage unit and prepare typed list of contents.  The unit is located on Army Trail Road in Addison.  A minimum of 6 hours on site is required but we will accept anyone either of the available days.

The case involves a guardianship proceeding.  The pending petition for guardianship is for a 72 year old woman with a terminal brain tumor.  Her children have petitioned to be her guardian as has her boyfriend of 20 years.  The couple lived together for about 12 years and were court ordered to sell the house.  A moving company was hired to pack and move everything in to storage but nothing was inventoried to determine the contents owners.  The court is requiring that the storage units be inventoried so items can be divided and returned to their rightful owners.  The woman and her boyfriend are no longer together and cannot be in the same area at the same time.

If interested, please contact COD adjunct instructor and attorney, Terra Costa Howard at 630-886-6140 or lawyer@terrachoward.com.
