    Discovered your podcast only last week. I graduated with my Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies in December 2021. Your 3 step guide is helping me organize a case that began in 2013. I’m from Eastern Kentucky, rural area, and this case deals with mineral and surface ownership. A lot of layers. I have two comments/suggestions. I am late in life diagnosed ADD/neurodivergent. I manage with medication, aka Adderal. I would love to hear tips/tricks from other like-minded paralegals in keeping on top of things on the bad days. Also, as a strong, outspoken female, I have noticed most of the female attorneys we deal with are mousy and not confident in their position. It irks me to the core. At least in my area, attorneys are predominantly male and have been practicing 20-30 years. The lack of confidence and surety in their arguments only makes them cannon fodder for jokes within the “water cooler” gossip and I don’t blame them.
