Anyone went from being a paralegal to being a claims rep? I had a recruiter reach out and while it’s not something I ever really wanted, it’s almost double my salary so I am considering it. Would love to hear experiences for anyone who has made this switch.

I can’t speak re working as a claims rep but I would definitely encourage you to reach out and listen to their pitch. More money and career development are always welcome, imo.

I’m attempting to make the switch now. I worked for an insurance company before going to a firm. Having done both, I much prefer the corporate environment (and the corporate pay). Good luck!

Question. How would you handle an attorney who doesn’t explain assignments very well? Everyone including attorneys get confused by this attorney’s instructions. Often times the attorney gets angry or upset when instructions are not followed.

For those of you who have been formally given the title of “senior paralegal” what are the qualifications for that title at your firm? Does your firm do promotions from paralegal to senior paralegal? At my firm we are all simply just “paralegal” (we all fully handle our own dockets, no assistants) and I would like to help develop a concrete career track for paralegal to senior paralegal.
