LOUISIANA HB 748:

LSPA President, Karen Greer McGee, attended the Senate Commerce Committee
hearing, prepared to testify in opposition to House Bill 748 which would have restricted
Certified Paralegals to include their credentials as a title to communicate their qualifications.

THANK YOU to everyone that helped with your advocacy and support!
Because of you, and the support of other organizations and their members,
WE WON! 
OUR UNITED VOICES WERE HEARD LOUD and CLEAR.
