Palm Beach County Paralegal Helps With Civil Matters

The Palm Beach County Elder Justice Center is helping residents with civil matters such as eviction notices and small claims, mainly with the help of a paralegal.

The center's paralegal, Paula Wier has been on the job since February, and has helped about 100 people with legal matters. The Elder Justice Center was only equipped to handle criminal matters until Wier was hired. Plans are under way to have a more consistent presence at the South County Courthouse in Delray Beach, where Wier or another staffer will go on an as-needed basis or if requested by a judge.
