- Company History
ParalegalGateway.com was formed in 2001 with humble beginnings. Founded by a Paralegal, Jeannie S. Johnston, the idea for the ParalegalGateway “…came to me while looking for a job. As I searched the internet for employer information, it became obvious to me that there wasn’t one specific site just for Paralegals. After additional investigation, I was satisfied that the creation of ParalegalGateway would fill a gap on the World Wide Web for Paralegal professionals.”
ParalegalGateway.com has certainly done just that growing at a rate that certainly surprised its founder. ParalegalGateway.com has become a central source for Paralegals across the globe. Thanks to local associations and publications such as Legal Assistant Today Paralegals are, now more than ever, beginning to receive the recognition they deserve. One major goal of ParalegalGateway.com is to continue in that spirit, offering support, professional information and above all, recognition to Paralegals who are making a difference in both the legal profession and their communities.
After a few setbacks, the site was removed for a few years however, the social media groups continued to grow. After much thought and requests, the decision was made to return to the web and begin creating new content once again.
Another goal is to promote law firms and companies who offer compensation and incentive programs specifically for their Paralegals. ParalegalGateway will regularly feature employers who have gone above and beyond the standard practices to include Paralegals as a vital part of their organizations.
Looking Ahead: The U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics has projected that the Paralegal profession will continue to grow faster than the average for all occupations. As the Paralegal profession continues to grow, ParalegalGateway.com intends to grow right along side, providing free news, articles, links, career tools and much more to our Paralegal visitors. Making our Internet debut in 2001, our continued web presence proves Paralegals love ParalegalGateway.com. We have big plans for the future and welcome all partnership opportunities.
