Precise Paralegal Services, Everett WA Informative - Defying Court Orders

Review by MikkisVictim on 2010-06-28
EVERETT, WASHINGTON -- The sole proprietor of Precise Paralegal Services has court orders against her in the amount of $644.54. These were issued in Snohomish District Court, Everett (WA) Division in January and February of 2010. She refuses to pay. I think it is especially egregious that a paralegal would flout a court order. This judgment is for money owed to me and promised to me repeatedly for over one year, at which time Mikki decided to sever all contact with me. I had no option but to go to court. I had absolute proof of all my claims and won the judgment. Mikki still refuses to pay. She is vilifying me, her victim, for legally pressuring her for what was promised and is lawfuly owed me, yet everything I have said is completely true, provable, and the court orders are a matter of public record.

You should look into your options for collecting on the judgments. A judgment doesn't necessarily mean you will automatically get paid.

I would be curious to know if this paralegal is guilty of the Unauthorized Practice of Law (UPL).

To Venice09: Boy, I have certainly become AWARE that a judgment doesn't mean I will automatically get paid! Quite a shocker. And, yes, I am looking into my options for collecting. The District Court advised me to do this when the payment hadn't been received within 30 days of judgment.

To Buddy01: This is interesting. The current legal entity I have working for me mentioned this also, just a few days ago. It is being explored!

I am studying to be a paralegal, and the importance of not committing UPL was highly stressed.

Buddy01: Congratulations and good luck! What exactly IS UPL? Can having a judgment against you for a business separate from your paralegal business be construed as UPL?

That's not UPL. That's sucky but it's not UPL

UPL would be say... practicing law when you're not authorized to.

i would suggest contacting the court that awarded you the settlement and ask what you should do about this.

or check out one of those "on your side" news programs. see if they'd run a piece about them

True, Pepper. Not UPL. MikkisVictim; Here is a good link that talks about UPL by state. http://www.abanet.org/rpte/section_info/upl/home.html

Also, a Google search will give you a good explanation.
